: THE BBC ORCHESTRA

(Section B)
Leader, Paul Beard Conducted by Clarence Raybould
Bantock's comedy overture. 'The Pierrot of the Minute ', was inspired by a dramatic fantasy by Ernest Dowson. Pierrot, obeying a mysterious message, falls asleep in the park at the Petite Trianon. A Moon Maiden, from the Temple of Love, bends down and kisses him and Pierrot awakes to throw himself at her feet in rapt devotion, though she warns him that her kisses are fatal. The reckless Pierrot demands perfect bliss, though at the cost of life, and together they laugh and jest until daybreak summons the Moon Maiden back to her own realm.
Pierrot falls asleep again, awakening to realise that his dream was but the illusion of a minute.
Vaughan Williams's London' Symphony is actually a musical impression of London just before the war began, but it is equally descriptive of the great city as it is today. The first movement is thought to be descriptive of morning in the city ; the Westminster chimes are heard. The slow second movement is based largely on the plaintive melody which introduces it.
The third movement is called a Scherzo, but that is by no means its feeling ; ' Nocturne ' is a better title, for it is an impression of London by night, and even though the tempo is brisk, the music strikes a note of sadness and mystery. The fourth movement is full of bustling energy with a preponderating and majestic march tune. Later, after the chimes have been heard again, a solemn epilogue brings the symphony to a close.

: Alexander Woollcott presents THE STORY OF IRVING BERLIN

with music under the direction of Victor Ray
(From New York)
Probably the best-known broadcaster in America and certainly one of the most popular American radio figures over here, Alexander Woollcott can be relied upon to do full justice to that versatile genius and melody-maker, Irving Berlin.
Many listeners will remember
Woollcott's Boxing Day broadcast on Stephen Foster , composer of ' Swanee River'. His talk tonight will be similar In form, and will encompass both the work of Irving Berlin and the man himself. The broadcast will be illustrated by examples of Berlin's melodies, and you may certainly expect to find yourself humming.

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.

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.
