: Mantovani and his Tipica Orchestra

With Jack Plant.

Mantovani, son of a one-time leader of the Milan Symphony Orchestra, has been broadcasting for many years now. At eighteen years of age he was leader of the Salon Orchestra at the Metropole Hotel, London, and broadcast from there for six years.

He left the Metropole to form his own band at the Monseigneur Restaurant, Piccadilly, and it was thus that his Tipica Orchestra came into being. He so called it because whatever the nationality of the music played, it always sounded typical of the country of its origin.

: THE ALPHAS

Presented by Frank Stewart
When Frank Stewart formed this ensemble for broadcasting in 1933, the first name he thought of was ' The Interpreters '. He changed it to the Alphas because they were the first to specialise in folk songs and light classical music, as well as melodious music of all types. The combination consists of five strings, piano, and marimba, and four vocalists (two men and two women). Frank Stewart conducts, and his rhythmic solos are a feature of every broadcast.
Stewart has a cobalt hen budgerigar which perches on his violin when he is practising.

: A RECITAL

Max Rostal (violin)
Franz Osborn (pianoforte)
Mozart wrote the Sonata in B flat, K. 454, specially for the Mantuan violinist, Regina Strinasacchi (1764-1823), and finished the violin part onlv the day before the concert at which he was to play it with her. He had no time to write out the piano part at all and played at the concert from blank paper without any rehearsal.
Schubert's Rondo brillant for violin and piano was composed in 1826 and published the following year-the year before the composer's death. As the title suggests, it Is to some extent a virtuoso showpiece Even so, it is by no means superficial. ' There is irresistible buoyancy in the swing of the rondo, which alternates between the rigidity of the march and the lightness of the dance ', comments Willi Kahl.

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.
