: THE iEOLIAN QUARTET:

Mildred Watson (soprano)
Freda Townson (contralto)
Parry Jones (tenor)
Kenneth Ellis (baritone)
In a Victorian Programme arranged by Joseph Lewis
This is the kind of programme that our older listeners will best appreciate, as they will remember the ' musical evenings' which were the vogue in the youthful days of our parents, when a quartette party would be in the company and they would sing such old favourites as ' 0 peaceful night' by the (then) rising young composer, Edward German , and then ' 0 fondest ' by Sir Hubert Parry , or ' Good night, beloved ' by Pinsuti. Also Miss X-the soprano would sing Frederic Clay 's charming ballad ' She wandered down the mountain side ', and other popular songs would follow from the rest of the party. Such a programme is this-each item probably a fragrant memory.

(Section B)
Leader, ARTHUR CATTERALL
Conducted by CONSTANT LAMBERT
According to Rimsky-Korsakov's own description, his ' Legend' is ' an orchestral piece of fantastic character on Pushkin's Prologue to " Russian and Ludmilla " '. The Prologue brings in all the characteristic figures of Russian folk-lore, and Rimsky-Korsakov originally intended that his ' Legend ' should be named after Baba Yaga , the witch who lives in a hovel perched on fowls' claws, which inspired one of the numbers in Mussorgsky's ' Pictures from an Exhibition '. 9.36 ANGUS MORRISON AND ORCHESTRA9.51 ORCHESTRA10.22 ANGUS MORRISON AND ORCHESTRA

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.
