OSCAR STRAUS, composer of The Chocolate Soldier, A Waltz Dream, and a dozen other imperishable operettas, is the second in the series of Famous
Continental Composers-Conductors to accept an invitation to conduct the B.B.C. Theatre Orchestra. The first composer-conductor to broadcast in this series of Celebrity Concerts was Emmerich Kalman , and it is hoped that later in the year it will be continued by Franz Lehar.
It is pleasant to note that these eminent musicians have formed a high opinion of the B.B.C. Theatre Orchestra. For example, Herr Kalman tells us that in Vienna all listen to our Theatre Orchestra-they think it one of the finest light orchestras in the world; while Herr Straus wired us after the recent broadcast of his Waltz Dream to congratulate us on ' one of the finest performances I ever heaid of my Waltz Dream '. We didn't even know he was listening.

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.
