: THE BBC SCOTTISH ORCHESTRA

Leader, J. Mouland Begbie
Conductor, Guy Warrack
In the middle of the last century Joachim Raff was generally considered one of the most important composers of the so-called ' new German school ', the school of Wagner and Liszt. At least two of his eleven symphonies—' Im Walde ' and ' Lenore '-for years formed part of the normal concert repertoire. Today Raff is almost completely-and somewhat unjustly-overlooked. His symphonies, hybrids born of the union of programme music with the traditional symphonic form, may not be masterpieces, but they are very interesting works, very typical of mid - nineteenth - century German romanticism, and well worth occasional revival.
The last four of the eleven are entitled respectively ' Sounds of Spring ', ' In Summer ', ' Autumn ', and ' Winter '. This last was left unfinished and had to be revised by Max Erdmannsdorfer. The titles of the separate movements are sufficient indication of the poetic basis of the Symphony, which is otherwise quite orthodox in form.

: STUDIES OF CHILDHOOD AND ADOLESCENCE

From the Russian Masters, 2 selected and presented by Lydia Lopokova
This is the second reading in this series by the famous ballcrina Lydia Lopokova whose characteristic it has been to tire of success and turn to something new. It is of interest that she was an original member of the ' Band-Box ' Players, who performed in a hall on 57th Street, New York, playing on sharing terms. Out of that small beginning they were to become the famous New York Theatre Guild.
Lopokova said goodbye to ballet after dancing one of her famous roles, the doll Swanilda in Co ppelia, for the Vie-Wells Ballet in 1932. The following year she appeared as Olivia in Twelfth Night at the Old Vie, and in 1934 gave a moving performance at the Arts Theatre as Nora Helmer in A Doll's House.
A short interview with Lydia Lopokova will be found on page 8

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.
