Leader, Harold Fairhurst
Conductor, Richard Austin
Solo violin, Frederick Grinke from the Pavilion, Bournemouth The genesis of Tchaikovsky's Fourth
Symphony is romantic to a degree. It was composed during the year of Tchaikovsky's unhappy marriage, which within three months resulted in a final separation and in Tchaikovsky's nearly losing his reason. Through the financial help of his strange friend, Nadejda von Meek (whom he never met), he was enabled to go to Italy, where at Venice he completed the F minor Symphony, which is based on an elaborate programme. The central idea of the whole work is Fate which is represented by a recurring theme that is heard on the bassoons and horns at the outset. The main body of the first movement, in particular, expresses this overpowering force and man's submission and his grief. The sense of despair grows in strength and poignancy until the writer turns from reality to lose himself in dreams. But the theme of Fate from the beginning is heard again, and the music means that life is, after all, but a continual struggle between the bitterness of truth and the fugitive dreams of happiness.

from Queen's Hall, London
(Sole Lessees, Messrs. Chappell and Co. Ltd.)
Part 1
Norman Walker (baritone)
Harriet Cohen (pianoforte)
The BBC Symphony Orchestra (ninety players)
Leader, Paul Beard
Conducted by Sir Henry J. Wood
Bax's Symphonic Variations were composed specially for Harriet Cohen while she was one of the students of the Royal Academy of Music. Although only half-way through her teens, she gave the work its first performance at a Promenade Concert in 1920. Since that time the composer has revised and shortened the work considerably. The Variations, though based on the theme which can be heard in one form or another throughout, are treated with much freedom and each has a definite mood of its own. The first, 'Nocturne', is for the most part dreamy arid quiet. It leads quite suddenly to No. 2, 'Strife', which is violent and dramatic as its title suggests. No.3, entitled 'The Temple', is slow and solemn in character. Variation 4, 'Play', forms a striking contrast with the third, and an Intermezzo, 'Enchantment' that follows, is again in a very different atmosphere. The fifth and last variation is called 'Triumph'. Towards the end the whole orchestra gives us the original theme once more, and the piece comes to a jubilant close. Tickets can be obtained from the British Broadcasting Corporation, Broadcasting House, Portland Place, W.1, Messrs. Chappell's 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.

A reading of Chaucer, by H. D. C. Pepler and Sally Perry
In that remarkable gallery of fourteenth-century English portraits which Chaucer has given us in ' The Canterbury Tales' none is more vivid, more robustly alive than the Wife of Bath:
' Bold was her face, and fair, and red of hue.
She was a worthy woman all her life,
Husbands at church-e door she had-e five '
A much-travelled lady-she had been three times to Jerusalem and appears to have ' done ' Western Europe as thoroughly as any modern tourist-and (more to the point) ' In fellowship well could she laugh and chat', as her long and racy prologue to her tale well proves.
Her tale itself, unlike those of most of her companions, has no known original.

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.
