: MEDVEDEFF'S BALALAIKA ORCHESTRA

and NADEJIN (Bass)
The Balalaika is a kind of guitar with a triangular body. It is Tartar in origin and is today very popular with the Russian peasants, who use it to accompany their songs and dances. The instruments are of various sizes, just as in our own string orchestras. The largest of the Balalaikas rests on the ground when being played, something like our double-bass. Balalaika Orchestras have visited this country since the War, and have appeared at the Coliseum and other places in London and the provinces. They boast an all-round repertory which does not stop at their own folk-songs. They can tackle classical music, which has, of course, to be specially arranged for them, with the same ease as do, for example, the crack brass bands in our own country.

: A Violoncello Recital by LAURI KENNEDY

Lauri Kennedy , who is the first 'cellist of the B.B.C. Orchestra, has been playing violoncello solos in public since he was eight. He made his début at that age in Australia, later studied in Vienna and London, and was then advised by Dame Nellie Melba to go to America. There he met John McCormack and joined him on a long series of tours. Besides travelling with McCormack, Kennedy has toured with Melba, Tetrazzini and many others, and everywhere with great success. He is a soloist of the first order.

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.
