: SCHUMANN'S 'CARNAVAL', Op. 9

played by Solomon (pianoforte)
Préambule — Pierrot — Arlequin — Valse noble — Eusebius — Florestan — Coquette — Replique —Papillons—A.S.C.H.—S.C.H.A. (lettres dansantes) — Chiarina — Chopin — Estrella — Reconnaissance — Pantalon et Colombine — Valse allemande — Paganini — Aveu — Promenade — Pause — Marche des ' Davidsbiindler ' (contre les Philistins)
Schumann describes his ' Carnaval' as a ' Masked Ball', and actually it is a series of sketches so cleverly illustrating passing incidents in a ballroom that to interpret it in terms of dance and gesture and to put it on the stage was inevitable.
Consequently, when Diaghilev's
Russian Ballet produced their lovely version of ' Carnaval ' in London, which is now one of the most popular items in the repertoire of ballet, it was seen how perfect a ballet it made, and how brilliant an examplo of programme music the music was.

: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

An appeal on behalf of THE NATIONAL TRUST by H. V. MORTON
The saving of the natural beauty of some 73,000 acres of our countryside and the preservation of historic buildings have been the work of the National Trust since its beginning in 1895. Except for a similar society in Scotland, it is the only body incorporated by Parliament to hold properties for the benefit of the Nation. It enjoys unique privileges. For instance land left to it by Will is exempt from death duties, and is excluded from the value of the estate in calculating the rate of duty on the rest.
The Trust is an entirely voluntary society, and relies solely upon subscriptions, gifts, and bequests of money, with which to carry on its work. When a large sum of money is needed to buy an important piece of land the Trust makes a public appeal for funds, as, for instance, in the case of the present appeal for the Manifold Valley.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to [address removed]. (Contributions for Northern Ireland should be sent direct to [address removed]

: A SCHUBERT RECITAL

by May Blyth (soprano)
Die junge Nonne (The Young Nun) Heidenroslein (The Hedge-Rose) Die Liebe (Love) Seligkeit (Bliss)
Wiegenlied (Lullaby)
Die Forelle (The Trout)
Naturgenuss (Enjoyment of Nature) Die Allmacht (Omnipotence)
May Blyth won the Sainton Dolby Scholarship at the Royal Academy of Music in 1916. She was one of the first members of the British National Opera Company, for which she sang several of the principal Wagnerian roles, and she has also appeared on many occasions with the Covent Garden Opera Company. Miss Blyth's association with the BBC goes back to the summer of 1923, when she made her microphone debut. Her gifts, however, are not restricted to opera, for she is an equally fine singer of German lieder and English song. Her husband, by the way, is Aylmer Buesst.

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.
