Dvorak's ' Legends ', Op. 59, ten in number and dedicated to Eduard Hanslick (the much abused Viennese critic and original of Wagner's Beckmesser), exist in two forms: for piano duet and for full orchestra. They were written in th'e winter of 1880-81, immediately' after the conclusion of the so-called First Symphony in D.
The pieces are all fairly short and thoroughly characteristic of Dvorak's delightful melodic, harmonic, and orchestral style.

: THE DUBLIN HORSE SHOW, 1937

A commentary on the jumping for the SAORSTAT TROPHY by Colonel Michael Hogan and Captain
John Lucy from the Grounds of the Royal
Dublin Society, Ballsbridge
(In collaboration with the Irish
Free State Broadcasting Service)
The Dublin Horse Show, famous throughout the world, opened on Tuesday and closes today. For a week, Dublin has been a city of gaiety, entertaining the thousands of visitors in its midst.
All roads lead to Ballsbridge and its fifty acres of grounds. Trade Exhibition halls, a flower show, military bands, judging rings, blood-stock sales, parades of harness horses, the picturesque Inter-Hunt contest -all contribute to the attractiveness that draws crowds from all over the world.
The greatest jumping competition of the Show is reserved for the final day. The Saorstat Trophy, jumped for over eleven obstacles, is an international contest, open to all armies, and to all people. The commentary should be a vivid and thrilling one.

: A VIOLIN RECITAL

by Jean Pougnet
Francesco Maria Veracini , not to be confused with his uncle, Antonio Veracini , also a well-known Florentine violinist and composer, was one of the greatest Italian musicians of the first half of the eighteenth century. (The dates of his birth and death-1685 and 1750-are the same as Bach's.) Torchi, in his ' Rivista musicale italiana ', goes so far as to call him ' the Beethoven of the eighteenth century
Veracini visited England in 1714, and he was in London again during 1735-45—perhaps till his death, the place of which is not certainly known. Burney says that his music was ' too wild and flighty for the English at that time '.

Part 1
God Save the King John Ireland was born at Bowdon
(not ' Bowden ', as ' Grove ' spells it), Cheshire, in 1879. From 1893 to 1901 he studied at the Royal College of Music, four years of this period being spent under Stanford. His earliest mature work, the Phantasy Trio in A minor, dates from 1908.
' A London Overture ', first played in its present form at a Promenade Concert last September, is based on some of the material of an Overture for Brass Band written in 1934 as the test piece for the National Brass Band Contest at the Crystal Palace. But the two overtures have little in common except this basic material.
Ireland wishes this Overture to be regarded as No. 4 of his ' London Pieces ', the first three of which- the piano pieces ' Chelsea Reach', 'Ragamuffin', and Soho Forenoons' -were written in 1917-18. Solo pianoforte, IRENE SCHARRER

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.
