: AN ORGAN RECITAL

by Herbert Dawson from St. Margaret's, Westminster
Josef Rheinberger (1839-1901) was a prolific composer in many fields but he is now remembered solely for his organ music, above all for his twenty organ sonatas. It has sometimes been claimed for him that he is the most important organ-composer since Bach. His musical texture has little or nothing in common with Bach's ; it reminds one rather of that of Schumann or Brahms. He was of nothing like the same stature as the old Leipzig master, but his fine seriousness, his spaciousness, and his polished workmanship have earned him a high place in the Pantheon of Organists.

Herbert Withers (violoncello)
Barbara Withers (pianoforte)
Besides writing a great quantity of music, Charles Wood was famous for many years as a teacher. He taught some of our leading present-day composers, such as Vaughan Williams , and in 1924 he succeeded Stanford as Professor of Music at Cambridge University. He held the post only two years, dying in 1926. Like Stanford, he was an Irishman who settled in England and collected and edited a great many beautiful Irish tunes.

: SONGS OF BRITISH SEAMEN

Songs of the Dutch Wars
H. E. Piggott
In his first talk in this series, on August 23, H. E. Piggott dealt with Elizabethan sea-songs and forebitters. In this discussion of the songs produced by the Dutch Wars of the seventeenth century, he will show how a song of the time of Charles I (probably a thinly-disguised fore-bitter), Matthew Parker 's ballad, ' Saylors for my money', became transformed under the Commonwealth into ' Ye gentlemen of England ', and a century and a half later supplied the basis of Campbell's poem, ' Ye mariners of England.'
Mr. Piggott will also talk about two songs connected with the terrible battle off Lowestoft on June 2 and 3, 1665: Lord Dorset's famous 'To all you ladies now on land ' written on the eve of the battle, and ' The Royal Victory', written after it.

: 'LAUGH THIS OFF'

Another anthology of American Humour from the writings of Will
Rogers, Clarence Day ,
George S. Kaufman and Marc Connelly , Franklyn Pierce Adams , Don Marquis , Frank Sullivan , Milt Gross ,
Robert Benchley , and Dorothy Parker with Macdonald Parke , Alan Keith ,
Thelma Paige , and Natalie Lynn
The programme arranged and produced by M. H. Allen
American literary humour has a longer tradition than most things American. A country that has produced Mark Twain , Bret Harte , and Joel Chandler Harris-to say nothing of the author of ' Helen's Babies 'has not only given itself a tradition but set itself a high standard.
As listeners will hear this evening, the tradition continues, the standard is maintained. Will Rogers on etiquette, F.P.A.'s impression of two women making a lunch appointment, Robert Benchley 's alleged true story of the death of Rasputin, and Milt Gross 's version of the Ferry Tale about de Fox, witt de Crow, witt de Chizze will bear comparison with anything by the older masters of American literary humour.

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.

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.
