The Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Sir Henry Wood: Volga Boat Song (arr. Wood)
The Bournemouth Municipal Orchestra, conducted by Sir Dan Godfrey: Petite Suite de Concert (Colenage-Taylor)
When Coleridge-Taylor died in 1912 at the age of thirty-seven British music sustained a loss that was irreparable. He had besides more profound gifts, a genius for turning out light concert music frequently written as incidental music to plays, which frankly sets out to appeal to popular taste, yet at the same time, by reason of the charm and individuality of the themes, the richness and variety of the harmony, and the sensitive feeling for orchestral colour, is a source of admiration and interest to the musician. To write light music that is successful from both a popular and artistic standpoint is an accomplishment rarely attained.
Coleridge-Taylor began as a violinist, completing his studies at the Royal College of Music, where he also had lessons in composition from Stanford. From 1893, when he won a composition scholarship, music poured from his clever and facile pen, much of which was published and secured him an enviable reputation throughout the British Isles. However, the work that consolidated his position as a composer to be reckoned with was the 'Hiawatha' trilogy (1898-9-1900).

The Centre of England—1
'The Shires'
T. L. THOMAS
In three talks you are to explore the centre of England—the counties of Warwickshire and Leicestershire, known as the Shires. It is a country of small hills and rivers ; of large, very green fields, and roads with wide verges, and wooded hedgerows. You can no more hear of the Shires without thinking of hunting than you can hear of the Avon without thinking of Shakespeare.
Leicestershire, watered and divided by the Soar, county of dairy farming-cattle, sheep, and good horses. Warwickshire, watered and divided by the Avon, county that was once the Forest of Arden-recalling As You Like It for all time. Land rich in pastures and orchards and market gardens, and possessing some of the finest woodlands in England.
Today Mr. T. L Thomas is to give you a bird's-eye view of the Shires.
He will describe the soil and gravel pits ; the green meadows and slow, winding streams. The upper Avon; country life ; farming, hunting. Midland houses; roads, canals, railways, wireless ; some Midland towns.

Government-Now and Then—8 :
' The Budget-Then'
K. C. BOSWELL
This afternoon Mr. K. C. Boswell is to tell you how money for government was raised from the times of the Plantagenets onwards. The Commons have from very early times claimed the right to control the raising and spending of money. But it is only the Crown through the government that can ask for money. Private members of the Commons can only ask that less money shall be given than has been asked for.

: Anton Chekhov's Three Sisters

Translated from the Russian by Constance Garnett
The action takes place in a provincial town in Russia
Adapted and produced by Barbara Burnham
This is the fourth play by Chekhov to be broadcast in the last eighteen months. The Proposal was given in 1933, and The Seagull and Ivanoff last year.
Chekhov, one of the leading Russian dramatists and a master of the short story, was born in 1860 and died in 1904. His grandfather was a serf and his father a tradesman. Chekhov entered Moscow University in 1879 and studied medicine, taking his degree five years later. During this period he appears to have eked out a precarious existence by contributing humorous stories to popular magazines. In 1886 he published a book of short stories, ' Particoloured Stories,' which was a great success.
The following year his first play Ivanoff was produced, but he did not follow this up with a second until 1896 when The Seagull was produced in St. Petersburg with dubious success, but it was repeated two years later at the Moscow Art Theatre and received with enthusiasm. Uncle Vanya followed in 1899, Three Sisters in 1901, and The Cherry Orchard in 1904. In 1900 he was elected honorary fellow of the Academy of Science. In 1901 Chekhov married the actress Olga Knipper.
An article on Three Sisters will be found on page 6.
This play was broadcast in the Regional programme last night

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
