: A SYMPHONY CONCERT

The BBC Midland Orchestra
Leader, Alfred Cave
Conducted by Eric Warr
Patrick Cory (pianoforte)
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.

: CORNISH TIN

A Programme on the Mines and Miners of Cornwall
By A. K. Hamilton Jenkin with Ross Hutchinson , Billy Polton , George Holloway , Merrick Lucas , Bernard Fishwick , Jean Wickenden ,
Barbara Edwards , Tom Jones , and recordings of a visit to a tin mine
Produced by Francis Dillon
(From Bristol)
In the first part of this broadcast listeners are to hear a brief history of the mines and miners of Cornwall from the earliest times to the present day, interspersed with records made by old miners themselves, who will thus be speaking to listeners.
In the second part they will hear recorded a visitor's impressions of going underground, and his conversation with the men. They will hear the deafening roar of a rock drill, and on the surface the roar of the ' stamps ' (machines that crush the ore to sand, out of which tin is extracted). The broadcast will give a picture of an industry peculiar to Cornwall, the chief source of supply of tin in Europe, with a history going back 2,000 years.
An article on the subject, by A. K. Hamilton Jenkin , will be found on page 18.

: I WAS THERE

' The Krakatoa Eruption, 1883 '
R. J. Dalby
In August, 1883, R. J. Dalby was on a small clipper barque, Hope, and witnessed the terrible eruption of Krakatoa, a volcano of evil reputation in the Straits of Sunda, between Java and Sumatra, which was again showing alarming activity only nine years ago.
On Monday, August 27, in the year of the catastrophe, the peak was blown eight hundred miles away ; ashes obscured the sun over a stretch of a thousand miles ; over an area of fourteen square miles all living creatures were burnt to death or swallowed into the bowels of the earth; whole forests disappeared, and many islands with their inhabitants vanished. The loss of life ran into hundreds of thousands. Mr. Dalby is to tell listeners of his experiences on what he describes as the blackest Monday he ever knew.

: CHAMBER MUSIC

The Busch String Quartet:
Adolf Busch (violin) ; Gosta Andreasson (violin) ; Karl Doktor (viola) ; Hermann Busch (violoncello)
For technical mastery, musical imagination, and depth of feeling Beethoven's last group of five string quartets is generally acknowledged to be the crowning achievement of the master's life. The Op. 130, in B flat, consists of six movements all of which are concentrated in thought and highly intellectualised in treatment. Two movements, particularly, stand out for their extraordinary beauty-the exquisite Alia danza tedesca and the deeply moving Cavatina. The original finale was the ' Grosse Fugue ', but, owing to its length and complexity, the publisher, Artaria, and certain friends prevailed upon Beethoven to have it issued as a separate work and to substitute the present less formidable allegro.

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.
