: THE WIRELESS MILITARY BAND

Conductor,
B. WALTON O'DONNELL
HUGHES MACKLIN (tenor)
In 1873, Victor Hartmann , a well-known architect and painter, member of Balakirev's circle, and close friend of Stassov, the critic, and Mussorgsky, died at the early age of thirty-nine. Mussorgsky was deeply upset and in the following year when Stassov arranged an exhibition of Hartmann's water colours and drawings, he was moved to compose a cycle of ten piano pieces based on various subjects from Hartmann's pictures. These he entitled ' Pictures from an Exhibition '. Mussorgsky seems to have been highly stimulated with the idea, for in a letter to Stassov, to whom the work is dedicated, he says : ' Hartmann is bubbling over, just as Boris Godounov did. Ideas, melodies, come to me of their own accord ... I can hardly manage to put it all down on paper fast enough'. This work has been scored for full orchestra by Ravel and Sir Henry Wood , and is now presented in a military band arrangement by Howgill.

: THE B.B.C. Orchestra

(Section C)
Led by LAURANCE TURNER
Conducted by JULIAN CLIFFORD
MARIA SANDRA (soprano)
An enthusiast for the folk music of his native Hungary, Kodaly has collected over 3,500 folk-tunes, many of them taken down from the singing of peasants in remote parts of the country. These dances, which made their appearance only in 1929, come from that part of Hungary and Transylvania through which the River Maros takes its way. Laid out for quite a small orchestra— woodwinds, horns, percussion, and strings-they are set forth simply and without any modern extravagances of harmony, reproducing the national characteristics as only a true Hungarian could have done. They are not cast in the form of separate dances, but played continuously with only slight breaks or pauses, as the melodies change from dignity to vigour, from swift grace to the wistful langour no other national music can express in quite the same way.

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.
