The music of Rimsky-Korsakov's suite ' Mlada ' is drawn from the score of the ballet-opera of the same name. The incidents of the plot are supposed to occur in the tenth century, and the place is a town on the Baltic coast where many nationalities mix. This latter circumstance gave Rimsky-Korsakov just the opportunity that suited him of writing exotically-coloured music.

The first instalment introduced the hero. In this second reading you will meet the wealthy Mr. Waffles in the heyday of hot, rash, youthful indiscretion and extravagance-that is to say, before his fame had made Mr. Sponge think that Laverick Wells ' would be a very likely place to suit him '.

No. 2
Lili Kraus (pianoforte)
Simon Goldberg (violin) from the Town Hall, Cheltenham
Debussy's Sonata for violin and piano, the third of a projected set of six sonatas for various instruments, was the last work he completed. It was written in the winter of 1916-17, when the composer had already been suffering for more than a year from the incurable disease from which he died early in 1918. Ill as he was. Debussy played the piano part in the first performance in Paris (May, 1917), with Gaston Poulet as the violinist. It was the composer's last appearance in Paris as a performer. He himself wrote of this Sonata as ' one of those countless little intimate tragedies that overwhelm you without making any more noise than a rose shedding its petals, leaving the rest of the world at peace

The good ship H.M.S. St. George has returned from her cruise to South Africa and Australia, and tonight's programme from her quarter deck will be more or less a celebration on the homecoming. Listeners may remember that in the programme before the St. George set out for South Africa and Australia, Pincher said that he was going to bring a parrot home for his nipper, ' Young Pincher'. Well, tonight there will be a real live parrot in the studio, and there is no doubt it will speak for itself!

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.
