Strauss's String Quartet in A, Op. 2, was composed in 1880. Although a very charming and well-written work in the classical style, it is hardly representative of the composer, who later came under the influence of Liszt and Wagner and finally struck out en his own path that led to such works as ' Till Eulcnspiegel ' and ' Ein Hcldenleben '.

: A Symphony Concert THE BBC MIDLAND ORCHESTRA

Leader, Alfred Cave
Conducted by LESLIE HEWARD
In a Radio TIMES article on Smetana's cycle of six symphonic poems entitled ' My Country ', Edwin Evans describes the third, ' Sarka ', as follows : ' To the north of Prague, between Podhaba and Liboe, is a valley which is named after Sarka, the heroic leader of the mythical Amazons of Bohemia. Betrayed by a lover, Sarka is consumed with rage against all men. To the strains of a march Ctirad, the hero, approaches at the head of his warriors. He sees a beautiful woman bound to a tree. He falls in love with her and his followers camp on the spot. Mead and wine are served and presently the men fall into a drunken sleep. Then Sarka sounds her horn as a signal to her Amazons who wait in ambush. They massacre the sleepers until the grass is soaked with blood instead of dew, and Ctirad himself falls victim to Sarka's sword.'

: ' In your Garden' C. H. MIDDLETON

This evening C. H. Middleton is bringing Ambrose Heath to the microphone to discuss with him the cultivation and cooking of a few unusual vegetables. In many small gardens more space than necessary is devoted to growing potatoes, and they both believe that some of this space could be used for certain vegetables, and would be so used if only the growers knew how to cook them. Hints in this direction will be given by Ambrose Heath , who is well known to listeners as a cookery expert. He and the gardening expert Middleton will touch briefly on the subject of herbs.

Early in 1905, the revolutionary elements in Russia, encouraged by the Imperial Government's ill-success in the war with Japan, became very active and nearly succeeded in anticipating the Revolution of March, 1917. As usual, the students of the universities were foremost in the disturbances, and those of the Petersburg Conservatoire of Music joined in. When the police took repressive measures, Rimsky-Korsakov defended his pupils and was consequently dismissed from his professorship. Glazunov and others resigned in sympathy and, as a gesture of defiance, he and Rimsky-Korsakov each orchestrated a popular revolutionary song of the day : Glazunov, the famous ' Volga Boat Song ', Korsakov, this spirited tune, ' Dubinushka ' (The Big Oak Stick).

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.
