Interlude
2.5 Stories from World History
' New Ways in the East'
A dramatic interlude written for broadcasting by WILLIAM TEELING
' The Unchanging East'—that is the way such countries as China and Japan have long been described, because the lives of their people seemed to go on just the same day after day, year after year. But today this is no longer true. Japan and China are becoming Westernised '—that is, many of the people there are copying European ways in dress, in work, and in war. Listeners will hear about Japan as she was in the old days, and then how the American Admiral Perry visited the country in 1854, and finally about some of the changes that have happened since.

: THE BBC ORCHESTRA

(Section C)
Led by Laurance Turner
Conducted by Julian Clifford
In the summer of 1879 Rimsky-Korsakov wrote a string quartet entirely based on Russian folk tunes, the movements being entitled respectively : ' In the Fields ', ' In the Maidens' Room ', ' Khorovod ' (a kind of choral round dance), and ' At the Monastery.' It was tried through in private, but the composer disliked the work and laid it aside till the following year. Then, having completed the opera Snow Maiden, he took the quartet out of his desk and began to orchestrate it, turning it into a ' sinfonietta '. The Sinfonietta was not completed till 1884, however. It consists of only the first three movements of the quartet, which were drastically revised as well as orchestrated. (The material of the fourth movement was afterwards used in Sadko.)
The Sinfonietta is one of the biggest orchestral works that have ever been based entirely on folk tunes. The chief melody of the slow movement has also been used by Stravinsky in The Firebird.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
