There is no doubt that when Gustav Holst died in 1934 Britain lost one of her greatest composers and one of the most outstanding figures in the academic world, for he was almost as great a teacher as he was a creative artist. Arthur Bliss has said that ' there is in the best of Holst's music so lofty an aim expressed with such skill and experience that he can assuredly rest happy in the knowledge that his will remain a name of honour in English music for many years to come.'
" Holst's technical skill runs away with him sometimes, his music is generally remarkable for magnificent effects produced by Ac '"mptest means. Most of his short choral pieces and folk-song arrangements, of which a representative Section will be heard this evening, are little masterpieces of their kind.

: The Elephant

Arranged by Francis Watson from the writings of the past two thousand years
An Anthology of all the fantastic creatures in the tales of medieval travellers -€” Unicorns, the Scythian Tarand, Elephants, Dragons, Mermaids, and Demons, none was more incredible than the Elephant, and yet only the elephant has survived.

"The Elephant", an anthology by Francis Watson, was broadcast last December. Many curious and beautiful fantasies about the elephant are woven into the story, some of them translated into English for the first time.
Francis Watson, who is the author of "Trinc" and other more serious works, has recently won distinction for his study of Wallenstein, published under the title "Wallenstein: Soldier under Saturn".

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
