: OTHER WOMEN'S LIVES

Helene Guepin
Madame Guepin , a diplomat's daughter, has experienced great contrasts in her life. She spent her childhood in Paris before the war, when most things delightful came the way of the daughter of the Bulgarian Minister. A child of twelve, she left the gaiety of all that, only to be interned in Bulgaria because her mother was French. But after the war.her father came to the Court of St. James's and she was presented at Court. Madame Guepin has already given two broadcast talks, One on Princess Juliana's wedding and another on a visit to the Balearic Islands. Lady Muir, the well-known broadcaster is her sister.

: THE BBC SCOTTISH ORCHESTRA

Leader, J. Mouland Begbie
Conductor, Guy Warrack
Glinka and Smetana
Ruslan and Lyudmila, Glinka's second opera, was first performed in 1842. His earlier A Life for the Tsar has a place in the history books as ' the first Russian opera ', but in musical value Ruslan towers high above it. Glinka himself said it would be 'easy to turn out ten operas like A Life for the Tsar from the material of Ruslan '. So Ruslan is the first real masterpiece of Russian opera.
Von Biilow once said of Berlioz's
' Corsair ' Overture that it was ' as terse as a pistol shot', and the phrase is equally applicable to this overture of Glinka's. Nothing could be more concise and economical.
There is not a note thrown away, not a redundant bar in the whole piece. And Glinka nowhere shows greater command of the orchestra. Such masters of instrumentation as Derlioz and Rimsky-Korsakov have paid repeated tribute to Glinka's genius for brilliant, translucent scoring ; and one has only to listen to the Ruslan Overture to recognise it.

: THE BBC ORCHESTRA (Section D)

Led by Marie Wilson
Conducted by Clarence Raybould
Leslie England (pianoforte)
Tchaikovsky's Piano Concerto No. 1 in B flat minor was composed during November-December, 1874, the orchestration being completed early in February the following year. Tchaikovsky, however, revised it, especially the piano part, in 1889, when it was first performed in England at a Philharmonic Concert under the direction of the composer with Sapellnikov as the soloist. It has since become in England one of the most popular of all piano concertos. Certainly it is a fine concerto,. for not only is the solo part brilliantly written, but the orchestral accompaniment is full of interest, both in colour and symphonic development.

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
