Sally Trench at twenty-two has already given four years of her life to service of the most arduous and taxing kind: as a teenager she went to live among, and care for, those ultimate outcasts of the Welfare State who are rejected even by most other social workers-the meths drinkers who live and often die, on London bomb-sites.
In this conversation she talks to LESLIE SMITH about her experiences

: * Concert Part 2: Stravinsky Symphony of Psalms

This was one of the scores commissioned by Serge Koussevitzky for the fiftieth anniversary of the Boston Symphony Orchestra in 1930. Aiming at a work with great contrapuntal development, Stravinsky chose a choral and instrumental ensemble in which the two elements were on an equal footing. A choir implied words and, being a religious person, it was natural that he should think of the Psalms. Eschewing conventional symphonic form, he also decided against a normal orchestra. And so he came to write his Symphony of Psalms for choir, woodwind, brass, drums, harp, two pianos, cellos, and basses-a masterpiece as moving as it is austere. Felix Aprahamian

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.
