(Section D)
Led by LAURANCE TURNER
Conducted by FRANK BRIDGE
Composer, conductor, viola-player, Frank Bridge is one of the most gifted and most striking personalities in modern British music. At one time people used to think of him as an inhabitant of the austere world of chamber music, though it is a little difficult to connect his vital, exuberant personality with any form of austerity. It is true he began his career in that world, both as performer and composer. But he has also enriched English song literature with a number of fine things of the type that appeals equally to the connoisseur and the Man-in-the-armchair-beside-the-loudspeaker. (' Love went a-riding ' is only the most popular of a dozen such songs.) And he has written some lovely orchestral poems, nature impressions by a man who knows and loves his Richard Jefferies.
Bridge is equally at home at the conductor's desk. He served his apprenticeship with the baton a quarter of a century ago, when he used to rehearse the New Symphony Orchestra, and since then he has conducted opera at the Savoy (1910-1 1), and Covent Garden (1913). Practically all the most famous British and American orchestras have played under him.

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

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.
