: THE BBC EMPIRE ORCHESTRA

Leader, Leonard Hirsch
Conducted by Clifton Helliwell
Arnold Goldsborough (organ)
Ambroise Thomas , although known almost wholly now by Mignon, was the composer of at least twenty operas and full-sized ballets which enjoyed great popularity in the second half of last century. In his own day, indeed, it is no exaggeration to say that he was easily the most popular of composers for the Paris stage.
The latter part of his life, however, was spent in teaching, as the principal of the famous Paris Conservatoire-a post which he held for twenty-five years.
It was the success of his opera
Hamlet, following on Mignon, which won him that distinction, and to Mignon he owed the reward of the Grand Cross of the Legion of Honour, which was given him on the occasion of its thousandth performance.

: 'JAMAICA EPISODE' H. A. B. Robb

After leaving the Royal Air Force at the end of the War, Hugh Robb went to Jamaica to grow bananas. While there, he set out to explore an underground river in the hope of getting cheap transport for his bananas to the coast. He found that the 'caverns measureless to man ' could not be exploited commercially in this way, but he also had some exciting adventures which he will describe to listeners this afternoon.

: A PIANOFORTE RECITAL

by Franz Reizenstein
Sonata No. 3 Hindemith
1 Quietly moving. 2 Very lively. 3 Moderately fast. 4 Fugue
(First broadcast performance)
I lindemith wrote three piano sonatas in 1936. With the Symphony ' Mathis der Mahler ' and the opera of the same name, the Flute Sonata, and several other works, these sonatas represent the new and more dramatic style of writing of this composer. Although the form and construction of the Third Sonata is modelled more or less on classical lines (for instance, the finale is a double fugue) the music is decidedly romantic in character.

: Virginia

A Musical Comedy
(For cast, etc., see Midland)
The Clayton-and-Waller musical comedy Virginia had a long West-End run at the Palace Theatre when it was produced in 1928, and was equally successful on tour, with Cora Goffin in the name part. The story is concerned with the efforts of Virginia's father, a millionaire, to marry her to an English lord, although, unknown to him, she is already married.
Part of the action appropriately takes place in the State of Virginia.
'Virginia' will be broadcast again on Friday (National, 6.45)

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.
