Solo pianoforte, Lance Dossor from the Pavilion, Bournemouth (Soloist, LANCE DOSSOR> )
There was a time when to see a piano in a music-loving home was to see a volume of Grieg's piano pieces lying upon it. In the field of short, lyrical, tuneful, and fairly easy pieces Grieg had then no rival. His engaging harmonic newness, his rhythmic folk-music preferences, and his pleasing sentimentalities made a strong appeal to the musical amateur.
But there is much more to Grieg than that. He was not merely a composer of charming little piano pieces, nor of a number of strikingly individual and often very beautiful songs. He wrote a good deal of music on a much larger scale, and it is on his whole output that he must be judged.

: The Ordinary Listener and his Set

R. A. Watson Watt
This is the first of two talks to be broadcast in connection with Radiolympia. The second will be heard on August 22, the day preceding the opening day of the Exhibition, the most important features of which will be described.
This evening's talk aims to show by means of ingeniously contrived records just how bad reception differs from good. Faulty reception is due generally to one of two causes. In the first place the listener may operate his controls carelessly, and in the second place parts of the set may stand in need of renewal. The records you will hear this evening have been made especially to illustrate these two points.

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.
