Bach's six Brandenburg Concertos, written at the request of the Mar-grave Christian Ludwig , were completed in 1721. The composer was then thirty-six and Parry surmises that the concertos ' were probably Bach's first ventures into the realms of absolute instrumental music on 'a symphonic scale '.
' Symphonic ' the concertos certainly are. It is hardly straining a point to claim that they are more nearly akin to the early symphonies of the mid-eighteenth century than to the old concerti grossi. The comparatively simple alternation of tutti with concertino in the old orthodox concerto grosso is here superseded. ' The various tone-groups interpenetrate and react on each other, separate from each other, and unite again ', says Schweitzer. ' The concerto is really the evolution and the vicissitudes of the theme.'
Tickets can be obtained from the British Broadcasting Corporation,
Broadcasting House, Portland Place, W.1., Messrs. Chappell' Box Office, Queen's Hall, Langham Place, W.1., and the usual Agents. Prices : 7s. 6d., 6s., 5s. (reserved), 3s. (unreserved), promenade (payment at doors only) 2s.

: 'FLIGHT OVER EGYPT'

Preserving game and organising sport round the lower Nile
J. Wentworth Day
J. Wentworth Day, who a few weeks ago gave a talk on restoring a home to water-birds-a talk which he is to repeat on August 17-returned in the spring from Egypt, where he advised the Egyptian Government on the preservation of birds.
In this talk he will give a bird's-eye view of the country, as seen by one who followed the bird air route from Cairo to Assouan. He will speak about the advice he gave to the Egyptian Government ; the conclusions the Government came to : and what the country generally looks like from an aeroplane. He will also have something to say about the birds of Egypt.
Wentworth Day, author of many biographies, is bringing out in the autumn a book on ' Sport in Egypt ', to which Prince Mahomed Ali , uncle of the King of Egypt and Heir-Apparent to the throne, has contributed three chapters on the Arab horse.

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.
