: Medvedeff's Balalaika Orchestra

Russian Folk Music
Nicholas Medvedeff formed his Balalaika Orchestra in 1919 from among Russian refugees, all men wounded in the war, calling it the Corps de Balalaika. The following year he appeared at the Coliseum, and a Stoll tour followed. They appeared at Oddenino's for six months and then did concert-party tours. In 1923 they came on the air and have been broadcasting ever since. The Corps de Balalaika assumed its present title when Medvedeff joined Lydia Kyasht in 1924. He toured with her for three years.
Medvedeff is the one person in this country to be in possession of an extensive library of Russian Balalaika music, both old and new. He has no fewer than 200 printed scores and has arranged, altogether, over fifteen hundred pieces, including one hundred of his own compositions.
Today's presentation is made by Medvedeff from his enormous selection of Russian music, which has taken many years to collect.

Midland Orchestra
Leader, Alfred Cave
Conducted by Leslie Heward
When Schubert died, his ' Unfinished ' Symphony, which had never been performed during his lifetime, lay hidden somewhere in the town of Gratz, of whose Musical Society Schubert was a member. It was for this Society that he is supposed to have composed the B minor Symphony. Ultimately, after years of fruitless search, the manuscript of the ' Unfinished ' Symphony was found.
Why it remained unfinished, or whether, indeed, the composer's ultimate intention was ever to finish it at all, can never be known. We do know, however, that it was the work of a new Schubert, a genius for the first time probing the remoter depths of a mature imagination.

: 'UNDER LONDON' ' Crypts, Vaults, Roman Remains ' F. L. Stevens

London's story lies under London, as today's broadcast-the third in this interesting series-will show. Mr. Stevens, who is responsible for the series, will take listeners in imagination to the crypt of St. Mary-le-Bow, where stones of a Roman road are still showing, where Roman bricks help to make the walls, and where spearhead decorations on the Norman pillars in the crypt are unique. He will speak of the arches that gave the name to the Court of the Arches, the ecclesiastical court of the Archbishop of Canterbury, and explain why this crypt is an interesting link between Roman, medieval and modern London.
He will go on to describe the fine barrel vaulting in the crypt of Bartholomew the Great, have something to say about St. Paul's and St. Martin-in-the-Fields, and finally he will speak of the old Adelphi Arches where Dickens used to play as a boy, and of the wine vaults under the railway stations of London.

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.
