: THE ENGLISH MAKE ME WILD

by an American
This is the second talk in this series which, as the title suggests, is not meant to be taken too seriously. Various people — many of them English-are to speak about some of the characteristic failings in the English from which they may have suffered. For their own protection all the speakers will be anonymous.
The series opened last week with a criticism by ' a civilised man ', and today English listeners are to hear what an American thinks of them. Others scheduled to speak include a Scotsman, a retired colonial, an Englishwoman on English men, and, it is hoped, an Englishman on English women.

: THE BBC ORCHESTRA

(Section D)
Leader, Paul Beard
Conducted by Sir Henry J. Wood
Much less often played than the popular Second Symphony in B minor, Borodin's First Symphony is in some respects an even finer work. Its first movement is one of the most remarkable in the whole history of the post-Beethovenian symphony, practically the whole of the thematic material being stated in the first few bars of the slow introduction. The other three movements-the Berliozian scherzo with its folk-songish trio, the oriental slow movement, the breezy, though rather Schumannesque, finale-if by no means as original, are equally delightful.
It is almost incredible that this
Symphony was the work of a self-taught amateur. Though, it is true, Balakirev claimed that ' every bar of it was Criticised and overhauled by me '. It was begun in 1862 but not completed till 1867.

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.

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.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
