John Greenwood is chiefly known as a composer of film and theatre music. Among his most successful' productions has been the music for the films Man of Aran and The Constant Nymph, and the incidental music for J. B. Fagan 's stage productions of The Merchant of Venice and A Midsummer Night's Dream. Some listeners will perhaps also remember that in February, 1936, Mr. Greenwood conducted the BBC Orchestra in the first performance of his short orchestral piece Salute to Gustav Holst.

Boccherini was one of the foremost
'cellists of the eighteenth century, and also a composer of immense industry. It used to be said that he was a fountain of which it was only necessary to turn on the tap to produce a stream of music. He left no fewer than 467 instrumental works, including twenty symphonies, all of them marked by simple, natural melodiousness and by a dignified and courtly style. He and Haydn had a mutual regard, and the relation of Boccherini's music to that of the more famous master was characterised in the saying that ' Boccherini was the wife of Haydn '.
The group of Balakirev songs which Keith Falkner is singing this evening are among the best examples of the composer's art. ' Sleep ' and ' A Vision ' are particularly noteworthy. Referring to ' Sleep ' in an article in the RADIO Times, M. D. Calvo coressi pointed out that it is not only a strangely moving song, but ' very remarkable in form and character-a lullaby whose words refer in turn to the sleeper in his babyhood, youth, manhood, and old age, with a circumstantial introduction for the piano alone, and a dreamy ending following an allusion to life everlasting after the last sleep. '
Of ' A Vision ' he says it is the most beautiful of the composer's later songs: it evokes, in superbly romantic fashion, the city of Prague in its glory, on Easter Sunday, with church-bells tolling and the clergy singing the old Slavonic Resurrection hymn. Balakirev wrote to me, when I was engaged in translating it, that he regarded it as the best song he had ever written. It certainly is one of the very finest in the Russian repertory. '

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.
