Bizet's Symphony No. 1, in C, appears to have been entirely forgotten until February, 1935, when its first performance was given at Basle by Felix Weingartner. It was probably composed during the time that Bizet was studying under Halévy. Bizet was then about fifteen years of age. The manuscript is preserved in the library of the Paris Conservatoire. Its four movements are designed on the lines of a classical symphony, and although the composer uses the idiom of his period, there is a striking individuality about the treatment, particularly as regards the orchestration, which is highly original and piquant in the French style. One of the most outstanding characteristics of the music is its melodic invention.

: ' The Strange Adventures of Mr. Penny'

by MAURICE MOISEIWITSCH
Episode No. 1—' Mr. Penny on Government Service '
Tonight is to be broadcast the first episode in a new radio play serial, which is to feature the adventures of one Mr. Penny, a sort of' Little Man '. The first episode shows him on Government service, going to collect threepence from a man who had travelled by bus and not paid his fare. One might not suppose that Mr. Penny, on so mundane a mission, was to get involved in such incredible complications.
Maurice Moiseiwitsch , who has written ' Mr. Penny ', is the nephew of the famous pianist, Benno Moisei witsch, and though he is only twenty-one, he has been a successful short-story writer and free lance journalist for six years.

It is a curious fact that Mendelssohn complained that the ' Italian ' Symphony, completed in 1831, cost him some of the bitterest moments in his life, and in consequence it was not published until after his death, in 1847. Yet it is one of his finest works, perfect in workmanship and full of melodic charm and vital energy. We may ' safely conclude ', says Sir Donald Tovey , ' that Mendelssohn's own dissatisfaction with the " Italian Symphony " is rather an objection to the laws of human growth than the recognition of defects that self-criticism and revision can remedy. Certainly in the first three movements every bar and every note is in the right place, except for one tiny oversight in the slow movement which only a mistaken piety would leave uncorrected. As to the finale, no defect is discoverable ; but we can imagine that Mendelssohn could have wished to broaden its design towards the end.' Despite the excellence of this last movement, Mendelssohn had intended to revise it.

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.
