: MUSIC AND THE ORDINARY LISTENER

' The Instruments of the Orchestra', 1
Constant Lambert
Constant Lambert's talks on ' The Instruments of the Orchestra ' are not intended to be directly technical, but are addressed to the ordinary listener. The chief aim is to help listeners to appreciate and understand the subtleties of orchestral colour, and the characteristics of various combinations of instruments. This evening's talk and the one to be given next week will be devoted to the wood-wind family, and ' an interesting point will be the use of the oboes in Handel's time, when they were used much in the same way as trumpets, and the modern conception of the oboe as a soft delicate, and pastoral instrument.
The fourth talk will be concerned with the brass section, the fifth with the strings, and the sixth with percussion.

: THE CINEMA

' The Documentary Film'
John Grierson and H. Hodge
Listeners will- be interested to hear the views of the man who was a pioneer in the idea of making short films dealing with industrial life, social problems, agricultural work, and so forth, and who was the first to call them ' documentary ' films.
About ten years ago John Grierson went to the Empire Marketing Board as Film Officer. There he made many of these films, which have been shown all over the country. When the Empire Marketing Board closed down, Grierson joined the General Post Office as Film Officer, taking his unit with him. During that time he was responsible for the film of the BBC called The Voice of Britain. Last May he left the Post Office to become a director of Film Centre, for which he acts in an advisory capacity.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
