: English Pastoral THE BBC EMPIRE ORCHESTRA

Leader, Daniel Melsa
Conductor, ERIC FOGG
REGINALD PAUL (pianoforte)
Folk song and the life of the countryside-these are the dominant influences in the music of George Butterworth , who had composed but a slender store of works when, at the age of thirty-one, he was killed in the War.
The few pieces he left us contain music of singular winsomeness, imbued with the spirit of old melodies, and subtly conveying the mingled charm and sadness of nature.
His idyll, 'The Banks of Green
Willow', first performed in 1913, is scored for a small orchestra of wood-wind, horns, trombone, harp, and strings. It is built upon two folk tunes. The first, that which gives the work its title, is heard on the clarinet-a gentle, ambling melody that is worked up by the strings. ' Green Bushes', the other tune (in the minor key), is given out by the oboe.

: EVENSONG

from St. Paul's Cathedral
Since the dismantling of the organ at Westminster Abbey, the BBC has received many requests from listeners to broadcast a weekday Evensong from St. Paul's Cathedral. The Dean and Chapter of St. Paul's were approached and have expressed their willingness that one of their weekday afternoon services should be broadcast; and, until further notice, a service will be broadcast every Wednesday from 4.0-
4.50 p.m. in the National Programme, beginning with today.
The change from Thursday to
Wednesday is sure to meet with the approval of many listeners who have complained that, while two religious services have been broadcast every Thursday, there has been no religious service on the afternoon or evening of Wednesday.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
