His Serenade for flute, clarinet, and string orchestra was first performed at the International Society for Contemporary Music Festival in Paris this year. Josep Valls comes from Barcelona, where he was born in 1904. He studied at the Municipal School of Music and later at the Schola Cantorum in Paris under Vincent d'Indy. The Concerto to be heard this evening was specially written in 1931 for the Musical
'Fund Society of Philadelphia.
Vittorio Rieti was born at Alexandria in 1908 and studied at Milan and Rome-in the latter citv under Respighi. His ballet Barabau was produced by Diaghilev in London at the Coliseum in 1925, and his Piano Concerto was first performed at Venice this year. Alois Haba is the eldest of this group of composers. He was born in 1893 in Moravia. As a boy he was a member of a village band which devoted itself entirely to playing Moravian folk songs. He later studied at the Prague Conservatoire, then at the Academy in Vienna, and finally at the Berlin Hochschule. His experiments in quarter-tones have brought him considerable fame.

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.
