Dherin and Piard (bassoons), Foveau and Vignal (trumpets), Lafosse and Delbos (trombones), Conducted by Stravinsky: Octet for Wind Instruments (Stravinsky)
Stravinsky's Octet for Wind Instruments was one of the first fruits of the tendency that originated with Stravinsky's ' Pulcinella ', in which he had adapted classical melodies of Pergolesi to his own modern idiom. That was in 1919, and the Octet did not make its appearance until 1923, but of the intervening works only the Concertino for String Quartet points definitely in the same direction, which has come to be known as neo-classic.
The Octet is for flute, clarinet, two bassoons, two trumpets, and two trombones. It is classical in form and retains here and there a little of the buffo spirit that went to the making of Mabra, the opera that intervened in 1922, but what made the deepest impression at the time was the transparent quality of the writing. To adopt a colloquialism, it was all clear and above board. There were no devices to dazzle or trick the ear. Virtuosity there was certainly, but not used for that purpose.

: Mantovani and his Tipica Orchestra


Mantovani, who is English in spite of his Italian name, probably owes much of his musical skill to his father who, as a symphony orchestra leader, worked under many world-famous conductors, including Toscanini. He was at one time leader of the Milan Symphony Orchestra. His thirty-two-year-old son has been on the air for many years now. When eighteen years of age he became leader of the Salon Orchestra which played at the Metropole Hotel, London. For six years he gave lunch-time broadcasts with this combination. He left the Metropole to accept an invitation to form his own band for the Monseigneur Restaurant, Piccadilly, and it was thus that Mantovani's Tipica Orchestra came into being.

He so named it because, whether the music it played was Russian, Spanish, Italian, or that of any other nationality, it always sounded typical.

: TO THE PUBLIC DANGER

An original radio play by Patrick Hamilton
Time, The Present
Production by Val Gielgud
Listeners will remember the name of Patrick Hamilton as that of the author of Rope, one of the finest thrillers ever seen on the stage or heard on the air.
Radio is the only medium that could do this new play full justice. Most of the action takes place in a car that is being driven at breakneck speed by a typical ' car cad ', the sort that everybody has known and hated, a man who drives while intoxicated and cares not a hoot for anybody or anything else on the road. The characters are all only too true to life, the situation is tense, terrifying.....
One gets the impression that the author, who has himself been the innocent victim of a wanton car-crash, must have written the play in a white heat of righteous anger.
Whether you drive a car or not, you will find this play concerns you most closely. For you are part of the public, and with people like ' Cole ' about the public is always in danger.

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.
