: Friday Midday Concert

Under the direction of JOHAN HOCK from Queen's College Chambers Lecture
Hall, Birmingham A STRING OCTET
Gliere was born in 1875 and studied at the Moscow Conservatoire under Taneiev and. Ippolitov-Ivanov, and since 1920 has been a professor of composition at the State Conservatoire, Moscow. He has been described by a Russian critic as a * contemporary Glinka' who is a composer for the people as well as for the intellectuals The Octet to be heard this afternoon was written in 1900. The music is conservative in outlook and not without a certain academic touch, as is to be expected, for the composer was a student at the time, and the writing is rather more orchestral than chamber music in style.

: Music and the Ordinary Listener

Sir WALFORD DAVIES
Following Ernest Newman 's six interesting talks, Sir Walford Davies returns to the microphone this evening to give the first of six talks on ' The Unexpected in Music '. He will discuss, with numerous examples at the piano, the sudden turns of melody, harmony, and rhythm which often arrest the ear in the otherwise even course of symphony and sonata movements. Most of the examples will be taken from Beethoven, for he is one of the richest of classical masters in unexpected effects.

: A Talk by the Controller of Programmes on the Children's Hour Programmes for the New Year

Tonight Mr. C. G. Graves is to explain in detail the new plans for Children's Hour broadcasts, as was announced last week. It will interest listeners to know that in the future there is to be more co-operation between the different Children's Hours, making for greater variety, and that the time allotted to the broadcasts is to be extended. The number of children who regularly write and ask why the Children's Hour is not an hour at all, but only three-quarters of one, are to get their wish at last.

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.
