Some time ago Kenneth Leslie-Smith visited Anna Zinkeisen and saw six panels that she has executed for the new premises of Messrs. Boosey and Hawkes. Mr. Leslie-Smith was so impressed with the beauty of these panels that he conceived a suite ot six orchestral pieces, which are based on the subjects of the panels as follows.
No. I, 'Duet': An Elizabethan gentleman playing a viol accompanied by a lady at a harpsichord. No. 2, ' Quartet' : Four people of the Georgian period playing a flute, violin, 'cello, and harp to a group of friends in a garden. No. 3. ' Encore ' :- A Victorian singer acknowledging applause, surrounded by bouquets. No. 4.
' Shanty ' : An eighteenth century scene on a dock with ships in the hack-ground. No. 5. ' Ballroom ' : People dancing in pre-War Vienna, possibly for the first time to 'The Merry Widow ' Waltz. No. 6. Bandstand ' : A military band playing a march in Hyde Park, the bandstand is surrounded by strollers in Victorian dress.

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.
