: REGINALD KING AND HIS ORCHESTRA

Light Music by British Composers Lancashire Clog Dance Arthur Wood
The majority of the programmes broadcast by Reginald King have been programmes of music by British composers, such as the one he is giving this afternoon.
King is an enthusiast for British music and is proud to have created a standard catalogue of light music by British composers for a leading firm of publishers who believe the British composer of light music can hold his own with any of his foreign competitors. The names in the catalogue whose music listeners will hear this afternoon are Idris Lewis , Geoffrey Henman , Frank Tapp , Montague Phillips , and Arthur Wood.
Reginald King 's new suite ' In the Chiltems ' —so far his most ambitious work-was first broadcast on August 2 and is breaking all records as a radio favourite. It has been played on the air by light orchestras 'all over the country, and has already been broadcast thirty times.

: LISZT

Sonata in B minor
Lento assai-Allegro energico-Andante sostenuto-Allegro energico-Stretto-Presto-Andante sostenuto
Played by Egon Petri (pianoforte)
Liszt's only sonata was completed on February 2, 1853, and dedicated to Schumann in acknowledgment of the dedication of the latter's great Fantasia, Op. 17. The first public performance was given in Berlin, in January, 1857, by Hans von Biilow, who played it on the first grand piano manufactured by his friend Carl Bechstein.
In every way the Sonata was an epoch-making work. It is undoubtedly one of Liszt's greatest compositions and on every page of it there is evidence of the immense imagination thut went to its making.

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.
