: The Violin in Italy

(1630-1730)-1
Violin Sonatas played by EDA KERSEY The earliest instance of a part being marked for violin is in the ' Concerti di Andrea e Giovanni Gabrieti-per voci e stromenti musicale. Venetia, 1587.' During the fifty or so years that followed Italian composers were experimenting with the possibilities of the violin and evolving an effective technique. With the coming of Arcangelo Corelli (1653-1713) Italy contributed the first really great composer of violin music, who actually laid the foundations of modern violin technique. Among his many eminent pupils were Geminiani and Locatelli. The present series of special recitals will give the listener a good idea of some of the excellent music that was being written during the period 1650 and 1750 which prepared the way for Mozart and Beethoven. The series will he continued as follows : Monday (Regional 7.30), Tuesday (National
9.40), Thursday (National 8.0), and Friday (National 7.30).

: ' Australasian Oddities '

CHERRY KEARTON
On his recent visit to Australasia, Cherry Kearton met more interesting oddities than he could deal with in the broadcast talk he gave a month ago ; and so today he is continuing it. He will describe that charming little animal the Koala bear which, harmless as it is, has almost been exterminated in its native land, though, ironically, it has been reproduced by the million as toys for children all over the world. He was lucky enough to take a perfect cinematograph film of a mother with her little one peeping out of her pouch.
He will also say something about the giant worm, normally six feet long and twelve feet when extended ; the two-headed lizard, so called because when its eyes are shut, you can't tell head from tail ; and the tuatara, only living survivor of the fossil age which can live for an hour without breathing.

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.
