: THE BOURNEMOUTH (D MUNICIPAL ORCHESTRA

Leader, Harold Fairhurst
Conductor, Richard Austin
Solo pianoforte, Clifford Curzon from the Pavilion, Bournemouth
For many years Haydn served the great Austrian family of Esterhazy as Kapellmeister. At his palace at Eisenstadt, Prince Esterhazy had his own chapel, opera house, and concert hall, for which Haydn composed a great deal of music.
The opera The Uninhabited
Island was written by Haydn in honour of the name-day of his royal patron. The overture begins with the traditional slow introduction which gives way to a lively section. Then comes a quieter and more expressive section which is taken from one of the scenes of the opera representing the uninhabited island itself. )
John Ireland's Piano Concerto was first performed at a Prom concert in 1930. In construction it adheres neither to the classical sonata form nor to the cyclic form of Liszt, though elements of both are noticeable in its design. Unlike most other concertos, the music contains little showy writing for the solo instrument, although the themes are clothed in rich ornamentation. It possesses, however, a grace and lyrical charm that is not always an outstanding characteristic of Ireland's orchestral music.

: A REFUGEE APPEAL

for Jews and Mon-Aryan
Christians by the Rt. Hon. Earl Baldwin of Bewdley, K.G.
Earl Baldwin has agreed to broadcast an appeal tonight to all men and women of goodwill in this country, whatever their race or creed, to do what they can to lessen the human suffering caused by the eviction from Germany, in a destitute condition, of hundreds of thousands of Jews. Many Christians, called non-Aryans because of even distant, relationship to Jews, have also been persecuted, and the need, misery and suffering is beyond belief.
Gifts and cheques, which should be drawn to the Baldwin Appeal Fund, will be accepted at any branch of the following banks : Barclays, Lloyds, Midland, National Provincial, and Westminster, or may be addressed to [address removed]

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.
