Service is over, and Michael is helping the Rector to count the collection, which is for the S.P.C.K. Michael inquires what these letters stand for, and is carried back to 1699, when Dr. Bray, a Warwickshire clergyman, founded the Society for the Promotion of Christian Knowledge, which led, two years later, to the establishment of the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel in Foreign Parts. To this day these two societies are among the main-stays of missionary enterprise at home and abroad.

Leader, Paul Beard
Conductor, Sir Adrian Boult
Walton's Viola Concerto was completed in 1929 and first played at the Proms that year. It is a poetic, even romantic, masterpiece by a composer who had hitherto shown a stronger predilection for wit than for poetry.
The second movement shows many traces of the composer's earlier style, but the work as a whole strikes a deeper note. There are even traces of Elgarian influence, though Walton's emotion is more restrained than Elgar's generally was. But the end of the Concerto is as deeply felt as anything in the whole of English music and the work in its entirety will hear comparison with any work by any composer written during the last quarter of a century.

: ' EMIL WALDTEUFEL '

A programme commemorating the centenary of the famous waltz writer who was born at Strasbourg on December 9, 1837
TheBBC
Theatre Orchestra
Leader, Tate Gilder
Conductor, Stanford Robinson
The romantic career of Johann Strauss is familiar to most English-men, but little or nothing seems to be known about his French compeer Emil Waldteufel , in spite of the immense popularity his waltzes have always enjoyed in England. December 9 is the centenary of Waidteufel's birth and, during the programme of his music that will be given tonight in his honour, listeners will hear from Henri Waldteufel , the composer's son, the story of his career. In particular they will learn, probably for the first time, the story of his rise to fame and of the important part that a certain Exalted Personage in this country played in it.

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.
