Conductor, JOHAN HOCK
T ike so many other Russians, Tchaikovskv loved the South. But for one period of eight years, during the 1880'S, he was unable to visit his beloved Ital at all. Then in January, 1890, he dashed to Florence, where he composed
The Queen of Spades, and spent one of the happiest periods of his life. On his return to Russia in May he wrote to his benefactress, Mme. von Meck: ' I had no sooner finished the opera, than I at once took up a new work, the sketch of which is already completed '. This
' new work ' the 'Souvenir de Florence originally written for string sextet, clearly reflects his unusual lightheartedness.

as Scrooge in A Christmas Carol
(.SM centre column)
Adventure has always called Robert Loraine He had no sooner established himself on the English stage than he went to South Africa to serve in the Boer War. He made his first appearance in New York in 1901, and has gone back there, off and on, ever since.
!n iocs began the series of successes in London, establishing him as one of our finest actors in plays varying from Shaw to Sheridan, and he opened in management at the Criterion in !QH with a revival of Man and superman.
At the outbreak of war he joined the Royal Dying Corps, and won the M.C. for conspicuous gallantry and skit!.
In !oiQ he created the part of Cyrano de Bergerac which he was to give on theairin 1927. Listeners wiil remember his broadcasts in Lord y/m and R.!7.R. Dickens—especially Dickens on the air—is no stranger to him ; in December, 1926, he gave a reading of ' A Christmas Carol '.

' Brahms '
Dame ETHEL SMYTH , D.B.E.
In 1877 Dame Ethel Smyth studied for a short time at the Leipzig Conservatorium and then privately with Heinrich von Herzogenburg, a friend of Brahms. The nrst time Dame Ethel met the great composer himself was in t878 when Brahms came to Leipzig to conduct his new D major Symphony. Although a great admirer of Brahms the composer, Dame Ethel was not a blind worshipper of Brahms the man. Up to a certain point it was a c)ash of two strong personalties, particularly as regards their attitude towards women. On the one hand, there was Brahms who had tittte time for women except in their proper sphere (according to the nineteenth century idea), while on the other, there was Dame Ethel with her pronounced feminist views. Dame Ethel has already written much about her recollections of Brahms, and this talk should prove another valuable and lively contribution to our knowledge of the great composer's personality.

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.
