: MUSIC FROM THE ARGENTINE

A selection of tangos, rancheras, and waltzes in Argentine style by Julio Decaro 's
International Rhythmic Band
Juan d'Arienzo's Tango Band
Vocalist, Enrique Carbel from Buenos Aires
According to recent investigations made by the Argentine writer, Eros Nicola Siri , the tango is of African origin and derives its name from the ' Tangano ', a Negro dance, much in vogue in Central America in the early part of the eighteenth century, whence it had been transplanted from Africa by the slaves who worked the Cuban and Haitian plantations. The Negroes who later migrated from those Central Ameri can countries brought the Tangano to the River Plate, where it took root amongst the peoples on both the Argentine and Uruguayan coasts, where it was also known as the ' Candombe '. There it merged with the habaneras, boleros, polkas, and mazurkas of European origin, and gradually acquired a distinctive rhythm and style of its own, eventually described as the Argentine tango.
The present programme will show the development of the tango from its beginnings up to its latest forms.

'FOX FABLE'
The story of Æsop's fox told in the manner of a Silly Symphony

Words and music by HENRY REED followed by a short programme of MUSIC, SONG, AND STORY in which you will hear THE THREE SEMIS, and THE CHILDREN'S HOUR ORCHESTRA will play some of the music specially written for them (Northern Programme)

The little musical play, Fox Fable, is founded on several of Æsop's fables about the fox-those chronicling his adventures with the grapes, the goat, the stork, and the crow. You will also hear something about the fox without a tail and Æsop's frogs. There will be solos by the fox, the goat, the crow, and the stork, and the little frogs will sing the choruses throughout.
The frogs, Tim, Tom, and Turn will be broadcast by The Three Semis — Violet Carson, Doris Gamble, and Muriel Levy - who are old favourites with listeners to the Children's Hour in the North.
Henry Reed is a well-known radio composer who wrote the music to The Flying Classroom and The Black Duke and the White Duke.

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.
