: TEA-TIME TALK

' The New Year in Paris '
Monsieur A. Simon-Girard
Here is an event in this popular series. This is the first tea-time talk to come direct from abroad. New Year's Eve and New Year's Day are big occasions in Paris, and M. Simon-Girard is to tell listeners in this country how Parisians will be bringing in the New Year. He will also discuss what Parisian women may be thinking about and talking about as 1937 merges into 1938.
It is hoped to give other broadcasts from various Continental centres from time to time in this series.

: THE BBC EMPIRE ORCHESTRA

Leader, Leonard Hirsch
Conductor, Eric Fogg
Serge Prokofiev is considered one of the leading contemporary composers of Russia and in his numerous works, such as the opera, The Love for Three Oranges, he has shown himself to be a master technician and a composer of great individuality. His ' Classical Symphony ', however, is not really representative of his style. It was composed in the spirit of a jeu d'esprit that, as its title would suggest, both in form and idiom harks back to the time of Haydn and Mozart. The music is clear-cut, full of straightforward melodies and tunes, and provides a most attractive glimpse of the eighteenth century through modern eyes.
Gordon Jacob's Uncle Remus suite is drawn from a ballet performed by the Vic-Wells Company a few years ago and based, of course, on the book by Joel Chandler Harris which long ago inspired some short piano pieces by Edward MacDowell. The stories of the animals-Brer
Rabbit, Brer Fox, Mr. Bear, and the rest-and their amusing pranks are told to a small boy by Uncle Remus, who is portrayed musically in a short prelude reminiscent of a Negro spiritual. After the little boy's dance come scenes and characters from the stories, while the finale gathers together in waltz time several of the tunes associated with the animals.

Classical Symphony, Op. 25 1 Allegro. 2 Larghetto. 3 Gavotte: Non troppo allegro. 4 Finale: Molto vivace - Prokofiev
Three Pieces, Op. 10 1 Mazurka. 2 Serenade mauresque. 3 Contrasts (The Gavotte, A.D. 1700 and 1900) - Elgar

John Burnaby will ensure that no one goes off the rails
All Aboard ! .
Here is something entirely new in the way of a novelty feature for a band. Benny Frankel and his Orchestra, who helped to make such a success of ' The Song is Ended ' in the summer, will drive the train on every broadcast journey. It is a peculiar train, stopping at delightful stations-Romance, Humour, and Rhythm; and it is run by a very strange Company who demand some kind of entertainment from each passenger in lieu of fares. Rhythm Express should make many a smooth radio journey, with John Burnaby exercising general supervision over its trips.

: BRAHMS

Sonata in F minor, Op. 5
1 Allegro maestoso. 2 Andante cspressivo. 3 Scherzo : Allegro energico. 4 Intermezzo (Riickblick): Andante molto. 5 Finale : Allegro moderato ma rubato played by Frank Merrick (pianoforte)
Brahms's Piano Sonata in F minor, Op. 5, was completed in 1853 when the composer was twenty years of age. It was one of that group of early works which aroused such great enthusiasm from Schumann on their first meeting.
The F minor Sonata was an extraordinary achievement for so young a composer. Cast on a very ambitious-perhaps too ambitious-scale, the music is full of both passionate intensity and lyrical charm. Its romantic leanings are obvious, particularly in the slow movement which is headed with a verse that may be roughly translated as follows:
The twilight deepens, the moon shines out,
There are two hearts in love entwined
That hold themselves with blessing crowned.

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.
