Smetana's opera The Secret was produced at the New Czech -Theatre, Prague, in 1878-twelve years later than The Bartered Bride. It was the composer's last opera but one ; he was already deaf when he wrote it. Like The Bartered Bride, it is full of scenes of the life of the people, and the music is as Kay and characteristic as anything
Smetana ever wrote.

: DOROTHY HOGBEN'S SINGERS AND PLAYERS

(All arrangements for Quintet and voices by Dorothy Hogben )
Dorothy Hogben 's Singers and Players usually consist of a Male Voice Trio, a baritone character singer, and a string Quintet. She herself has been a frequent visitor to the microphone as an exponent of both classical and lighter music. Right from the pioneer days of broadcasting she has been a deputy BBC pianist ; and more recently she conducted and orchestrated over sixty of the Ridgeway Parades. She also filled the role of soloist when Scarlatti was the subject of the ' Foundations of Music ' series.

: REGINALD KING AND HIS ORCHESTRA

GLADYS PALMER (contralto)
This Orchestra consists of nine players, of whom Reginald King is the pianist. He was one of the first to make salon arrangements of foxtrots, and today nearly all the numbers he presents are arranged by him. His programmes usually reflect his predilection for British light composers-there has been a dearth of good Continental music, he thinks, ever since the War period. At the age of five, King was taught the piano by his father. Later; he went to Blackheath Conservatoire and then on to the Royal Academy.

' Ice Hockey '
E. H. GREEN
This evening Captain E. H. Green is to give a short history of ice hockey with a brief explanation of the rules (penalties and so forth). He will discuss rinks and teams, personalities in the game, and compare English and Canadian players. Opportunities in the future for young players, the growth and future of the game, and new rinks ; important games in the near future, the progress of the League-these and many other things will be dealt with in his talk.
Captain Eric Green himself used to play outside left for England at hockey and has written several books on the game. He played ice hockey for many years before the war, when the game was known as ' bandy '. Since it was introduced into London and the provinces, he has been one of its keenest supporters and is considered among the best critics of ' the fastest game in the world '.

Fantasia (La Boutique fantasque) (The
Fantastic Toyshop) . .Rossini, Respighi
Respighi was first made known to us in this country by the ballet La boutique fantasque. The music is taken from some of the light pieces, chiefly written for pianoforte, which Rossini composed in his last years, and Respighi has arranged them to make a delightfully fresh and dainty ballet. On the stage the dolls in the shop come to life and* dance. The ballet consists of a Cossack Dance, a Nocturne, a Mazurka, an Italian Tarantella, a slow Waltz, a boisterous Can-Can, and a Galop.

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.
