Under the direction of WALFORD HYDEN the PROGRAMME of ' Katinka ', a title which merely locates the area from which the music is taken, in this case Russia, is an exact replica of the programme which was given last year in Walford Hyden 's series of musical programmes of the nations. Listeners who are at all familiar with Russian music, particularly of Tchaikovsky, Rimsky-Korsakov, and others of that period, will find it interesting to note how familiar some of the tunes now to be played will sound. Russian composers probably more than the composers of any other nation have drawn upon the wonderful resources of Russian folk-song ; a folk-song one may here remark which is amongst the peasantry a living pastime rather than a restored art, as it is in the more Western countries.
By the way, there is no harm in again reminding listeners that while this combination is called a Magyar orchestra, it is not only Magyar music that it plays. The Magyar Band, on its native heath is usually composed of gypsies, who, in Hungary, are a race of musicians extraordinarily gifted by instinct, and although they play their-own music with consummate skill, no music of a folk-order is outside their scope. An article on this very subject is on page 618 of this issue. Listeners to this programme will read it with a new understanding.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome
