: Music from France

A programme of orchestral music presented by Martin Cooper
Martin Cooper, the author of two notable music books-on Gluck and Bizet-was bom in 1910 and educated at Winchester and Oxford.
He continued his musical studies with Wellesz in Vienna. On his return to England he became Assistant Editor of the Royal Geographical Journal and music critic of the London Mercury.
Martin Cooper makes his microphone debut with two talks on French music covering the period from 1870 up to the present day. The extraordinary versatility of the French musical genius can best be understood by the juxtaposition of the more representative examples of the music of Saint-Saens, Vincent d'Indy, and Reynaldo Hahn (June 12). and Ravel, Florent Schmitt, Chabrier, and Milhaud (June 19). The object of the talks is to interest the large number of listeners to whom these composers are mere names, if that, and to try to create a public for a large repertory of orchestral music which is barely represented in the general concert programmes in this country.

: A VIOLA RECITAL

by Bernard Shore
Bernard Shore , principal viola of the BBC Symphony Orchestra, is one of the foremost players of this instrument in England. He studied at the Royal College of Music under Arthur Bent, and afterwards under
Lionel Tertis , for whom he has a great admiration and affection. One of his happiest musical memories was playing the Bach Brandenburg B flat Concerto for two solo violas with him in 1933. In addition to playing concertos with the leading London and provincial orchestras, Bernard Shore 's chamber-music activities have been considerable.

: The London Philharmonic Concert Society Ltd. presents ' SIEGFRIED'

Act 3 of the opera by Wagner from the Royal Opera House, Covent
Garden
Scene 1, A wild region at the foot of the Valkyrie's rock
Scene 2, The summit of the Valkyrie's rock
Cast in order of appearance
The London Philharmonic Orchestra
Leader, David McCallum
Conductor, Sir Thomas Beecham ,
Bart.
Producer, Charles Moor
At the beginning of Act 3 Wotan explains to Erda, Goddess of the Earth, that he and the old gods will abdicate and leave the world to the rule of Siegfried and Briinnhilde. The storm which accompanied Wotan's entry passes over, and Siegfried confronts the Wanderer, as Wotan is calling himself. With a blow of the sword he had forged himself from the splinters of his father's weapon, he cuts in two the old god's spear of world dominion, and plunges into the flames that surround the crag.
The scene changes to the summit where Briinnhilde lies asleep. Siegfried wakes her and she sings a joyous greeting to the light. Then, recognising the hero who had come to win her as his bride, she bids him welcome, and the opera closes with an exultant love duet.
Act 2 of ' Siegfried' was broadcast in the Regional programme at 8.1$

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.
