The longest run on record of any musical production was made with the popular musical comedy The Maid of the Mountains. Harold Fraser-Simson 's melodious score contributed very largely to this success. It was first put on at Daly's in 1917, with Josd Collins in the cast. (Hers, too, was a splendid achievement, and is still one of the more delightful War-time memories of officers and men on leave.)
Fraser-Simson wrote music to other musical comedies, notably A Southern Maid, The Street Singer, and Betty in Mayfair ; but he is even better known to listeners by his settings of A. A,.. Milne's ' When We Were Very Young ', and more recently by the incidental music to the adaptation of Kenneth Grahamc 's 'Wind in the Willows', put on the stage under the title of Toad of Toad Hall.

: A Pianoforte Recital

by IRENE SCHARRER
Beethoven himself did not give the title ' Moonlight ' to the sonata, but the label gives, nevertheless, a very apt impression of the music of at least the first movement, which is in itself a little tone poem. The whole sonata is shorter than most of the others. Following the first movement is the very simple but sparkling minuet, leading straight into the finale, which, again short, moves to its conclusion at the unerring pace and inevitability of all Beethoven's allegros. With the public, if not with the virtuosi themselves, this sonata is perhaps the most popular of any.
Szymanovski is one of the leaders of contemporary Polish music. As a composer he began as a disciple of Strauss, Scriabin, and Reger, but very quicldy asserted a strong individuality of his own. Having written three symphonies, a violin concerto, an opera, piano sonata, and a number of songs, he fell under the influence of Polish folk-song, which has considerably influenced the style of his later compositions.
The movement of water very naturally attracted a School of French Composers, whose pianoforte music has just that quality. Both Debussy, and Ravel in his earlier pianoforte pieces, wrote just such music. ' Jeux d'eau ', written in 1901 when Ravel was twenty-six, is prefaced with a few words giving an image of a sculptured water god smiling beneficently in the midst of an ornamental fountain.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
