The B.B.C. Orchestra
(Section C)
(Led by Laurance Turner )
Conducted by Joseph Lewis
Eduard Strauss was the youngest son of the first (Donaulieder) Johann, and brother of the second (Blue Danube) Johann. Like all the members of his celebrated family he wrote. waltzes, of which this one, Doclrinen, is now the most popular. When Johann first went on tour with his band, Eduard took his place as conductor of the court balls at St. Petersburg. Later, however, he in turn formed his own band and toured Europe with it. Vienna, of course, was the chief scene of his triumphs, though he was a terrific attraction wherever he and his band performed. He came to London in 1885, and gave daily concerts at the Inventions Exhibition. His success was sensational... He composed not Jess than 200 pieces of dance music, all of which were published.

: THE GLASGOW ORPHEUS CHOIR

Conductor, Sir HUGH S. ROBERTON

Relayed from The Free Trade Hal!, Manchester
Sir Hugh Roberton—he was knighted last year
-has been the conductor of the Glasgow Orpheus Choir since 1906, the year in which he founded it. It is one of the best-known Choirs in the British Isles, and all the credit that can possibly attach to a conductor apart from his forces is due to Roberton. Sir Hugh was born in Glasgow, and has been connected with the music of that city all his life, beginning as a church-choir trainer, and achieving his ambition with his present choir. Besides this, he was one of the pioneers of the Competition Festival Movement in Scotland, and from the start his gifts as an adjudicator have been in incessant demand, while for two years now he has made a tour of the Canadian Competition Festivals as a guest adjudicator and adviser. But he is not only a conductor, adjudicator, and composer; he is also a lecturer, journalist, and author. In these capacities he handles a pen with all the delicate shades of expression, and all the humour, with which he swings a baton. The Cockle Gatherer (Songs of the Hebrides)

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.
