: Part 1 of'ARMS AND THE MAN'

An anti-romantic comedy by Bernard Shaw to be broadcast in three parts
Cast (by permission of Firth Shephard)
The action takes place in Major Petkoff's house in a small town near the Dragoman Pass, Bulgaria, late in the year 1885
Part 1 takes place in Raina's bedroom
Production by John Richmond
Although one of his very earliest plays-it was written in 1895-Arms and the Man is considered by many to be the most entertaining Shaw ever wrote. It was the first of G. B. S.'s 'Pleasant Plays', which include Candida, The Man of Destiny, and You Never Can Tell. Set in the Balkans of the middle
'eighties, the play moves with characteristic Shavian wit through the intrigues of those troublous countries, having as its aim a realistic onslaught on the political and religious idealism of those times.
Part 2 of Arms and the Man will be broadcast in the National programme on Tuesday, April 18, and Part 3 on Friday, April 21.

: RACHMANINOFF

Variations on a theme of Corelli,
Op. 42 played by Joan Boulter (pianoforte)
This set of twenty Variations on a Theme of Corelli written in the summer of 1932 and dedicated to Fritz Kreisler , is one of the most important of Rachmaninoff's more recent works. Several of the variations foreshadow others in the later
' Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini ' for piano and orchestra.
The theme is not actually by Corelli but is the famous sixteenth-century Portuguese dance tune, known as ' La Folia', or 'Folies d'Espagne', on which Corelli himself wrote a celebrated set of variations. The tune has also been used by Vivaldi, Lully, Pergotesi, Bach, Gretry, and Cherubini.

: Mediterranean Emergency

Adapted from the film 'Alerte en Mediterranee' by Horton Giddy
Produced by Peter Creswell
Cast (by permission of Drury Lane Theatre)
Also: A bartender, a Police Commissioner, a police court usher, an English Admiral, officers, signalmen, sailors, waiters, a quartermaster, etc. Played by: Leslie Bradley, M. Landale, Geoffrey Wincott, Eric Berry, Paul Vernon, John Blythe, Kenneth Barton, Lindesay Baxter, Patrick Devitt
Scene: The international port of Tangier, Morocco
Time: The present
Alerte en Mediterranee, which has been recently shown in this country, was one of the outstanding French film productions of last year. It has a particularly topical significance both in its treatment of the Mediterranean problem and in its endeavour to prove that however much countries may differ politically, there can be no fundamental difference between individuals representative of them.
When the play opens three warships are lying in the harbour of Tangier, one British, one French, one German. While shore-leave has been granted to the ratings who are exploring the town, the captains of each of the three ships find their way to the bar of the principal hotel. A disagreeable incident occurs to bring out in each strong nationalistic feeling, which is eventually sunk when all three find themselves committed to the common cause of humanity in an heroic mission of rescue.

: The London Symphony Orchestra

Leader, W. H. Reed
Conductor, Julian Clifford
Orrea Pernel (violin)

This is one of five concertos Mozart wrote in 1775. Each, like the older Vivaldi type of violin concerto, consists of three movements, but in almost every other respect Mozart advanced far beyond his predecessors in this field. The opening tuttis with their quite symphonic statements of material, for instance, sounded a new note.
Variations on a theme of Haydn (Chorale St. Antonii) Brahms

In November, 1870, Brahms's friend, C.F. Pohl, author of the great standard biography of Haydn, showed him a curious and little-known work by the eighteenth-century master: a Feldpartita in B flat written in the 1780's for Prince Esterhazy's military band. It is scored for two oboes, two horns, three bassoons, and serpent. Brahms was immediately impressed by the work ; he copied into a note-book the second movement, entitled 'Chorale St. Antonii'. But the variations by which he made that Chorale one of the world's best-known melodies were not written till the summer of 1873.

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.
