Civilisations. 2-' Greece'
SIR RICHARD LIVINGSTONE
Goethe said : ' Of all men, the Greeks have dreamt the dream of life best '. Few modern authorities would care to disagree with this view. Yet ancient Athens, the most important of the Grecian city-states, had only 160,000 citizens at its greatest time. And it is
this small centre that is admired today as an example of civilisation at its highest.
Sir Richard Livingstone will talk more of the spirit that created this civilisation than of the civilisation itself-the spirit which tried to apply intelligence to every aspect of life. Sir Richard is President of Corpus Christi College, Oxford, and is the author of several books dealing with Ancient Greece.

: A Symphony Concert THE BBC MIDLAND ORCHESTRA

Leader, Alfred Cave
Conducted by LESLIE HEWARD
Much less often played than the popular Second Symphony in B minor, Borodin's First Symphony is in some respects an even finer work, Its first movement is one of the most remarkable in the whole history of the post-Beethovenian symphony, practically the whole of the thematic material being stated in the first few bars of the slow introduction. The other three movements-the Berliozian scherzo with its folk-songish trio, the oriental slow movement, the breezy (though rather Schumannesque) finale-if by no means as original, are equally delightful.
It is almost incredible that this
Symphony was the work of a self-taught amateur. (Though, it is true, Balakirev claimed that ' every bar of it was criticised and overhauled by me '.) It was begun in 1862, but not completed till 1867.

: Keyboard Talks-1

' English Song'
JOHN COATES
John Coates , who has had a distinguished career in opera, oratorio, and on the concert platform, is giving a series of six Keyboard Talks devoted to English song. In the past Mr. Coates identified himself with the whole range of English song, as an interpreter of which he was unsurpassed. Mr. Coates begins his talks this evening with four examples of early English song : ' Summer is icumen in ', ' Good King Wenceslas ', ' The Agincourt Song ', and ' Chevy Chase ', to all of which he will provide an interesting historical background.
Next week Mr. Coates will sing and discuss Tudor songs, including the King's Ballad, written by Henry the Eighth.

Selected by CLAUDE AVELING
(Soprano solo, MAY BARTLETT)
The Sf. Michael's Singers were founded in 1919 with the object of giving those who are engaged in daily work in the City of London an opportunity of taking part in, and listening to, performances of the best choral music both accompanied and a cappella; and especially to give annual performances of J. S. Bach 's Christmas Oratorio and St. John Passion. Since then the Society has developed, and its influence has extended far beyond the boundaries of the City.
The ' Singers ' are strictly limited to eighty picked voices, who rehearse weekly during the whole year . * In addition to the special
Bach performances, they hold an annual four days' Musical Festival during November of each year.

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.

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.
