Percy Grainger was born at Brighton, near
Melbourne in Australia, fifty years ago. Ho gave pianoforte recitals as a boy and accumulated enough money to travel to Germany and study there. His British colleagues in Germany included Balfour Gardiner , Norman O'Neill , Cyril Scott , and Roger Quilter. In 1900 ho came to London and was known to the British public as a pianist of great brilliance for the next fifteen years. Then he went to America and has since returned only as a visitor from the States, where lie has made his home.
As a composer, Grainger has concentrate! on a certain type of music—the folk-song element dressed for to-day and embroidered in a very individual manner. His Mock Morris, Shepherd's Hey, and Molly on the Shore have been played all over the world, and are very delightful examples of what can be done with folk material by a musician who treats it as ruthlessly and as brilliantly as Grainger does. His sense of rhythm, his grasp of orchestral colour, and his power of effecting a climax-big words, but not too big for an apt description— are shown to be, in the small compass of his shorter pieces, as important and as strongly handled as if symphonic proportions had been his object. Graingor has composed actually very little ; one wishes he had done much more. He has effected nothing that has not been interesting nor well done.

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.
