The Spencer Dyke String Quartet:
Spencer Dyke (violin)
Tate Gilder (violin)
Frederick Riddle (viola)
Cedric Sharpe (violoncello)
After the Revolution Nicholas Tcherepnin was appointed Director of the Conservatoire at Tiflis, but he emigrated two or three years later and, like so many other Russians, made his home in France.
This String Quartet in A minor is numbered Op. 11, and is therefore a comparatively early work. One naturally expects a man's earlier compositions to show traces of ' 'influence' and, in this case, the predominant melodic influence is obviously that of Borodin, though the material is not handled at all as Borodin would have handled it. In this respect the Quartet is thoroughly characteristic of the great bulk of the music being written in Russia thirty or forty years ago. It is tinged with that delightful national flavour that makes Russian music so generally attractive, but displays an almost Mendelssohnian neatness of workmanship.

5.30 'The Learned Adventure of the Dragon's Head'
A Lord Peter Wimsey detective story by Dorothy L. Sayers, adapted as a play by Leslie Stokes
with Robert Holland, Jack Melford, Leslie Perrins, Philip Wade, Ivan Samson, and Harcourt Williams
Many of you must know and like Lord Peter Wimsey - that unusual detective; many of you may like his nephew, Viscount St. George, commonly called Gherkins, even better, if only because he is nearer your age. It was a bit of luck for him that measles had broken out at his school, or he would have missed the excitement of the mystery of the Dragon Fountain. He thought Peter Wimsey a fairly decent uncle before, but a glorified uncle afterwards. Robert Holland is to play Gherkins, and it is hoped that Jack Melford will play Lord Peter Wimsey.

Gene Krupa and his Swinp:
Orchestra from Atlantic City, New Jersey
(In collaboration with the Columbia
Broadcasting System)
It wns originally arranged that Dukt Ellington and his Orchestra should broadcast tonight, but unhappily Duke Ellington is ill. and happily the 'Ace Drummer Man ', Gene Krupa and his Orchestra, who were to have broadcast next Saturday, can take his place.
Krupa was born in Chicago twenty-nine years ago. His first job with a name band was with Joe Kayser in Chicago. In 1929 he joined Red Nichols and his
Orchestra, to find that Benny Good-man, his boyhood pal, was clarinet and sax man ; a few years later he joined up with Benny and rode with him on the tide to fame.
Last winter he formed his own band and it is recorded that in March, on Atlantic City's Steel Pier. when Drummer Krupa's new orchestra got in the groove, 5,000 pop eyed adolescents raised the roof.

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.

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.
