Weber's
Sonatinas Weber wrote six sonatinas for violin and piano. They were originally entitled ' Six progressive Sonatas for piano, with violin obbligato, dedicated to amateurs'. Written in 1810, these sonatinas were the result of a commission which Weber received from a publisher who, however, sent them back on the grounds that they were ' too good '. In the following year they were published by Simrock.
Francaix
Jean Franc.aix belongs to the post-war generation of French composers. He was born at Le Mans in 1912, but later went to Paris, where he studied at the Conservatoire under Nadia Boulanger. In a Radio TIMES article on the composer, Alan Frank summed up his music as follows: ' Frangaix's music is not quite like any other music written today. It is entertaining, but not humorous in the sense that Poulenc's is.... It is music that is as delicate as the lightest white wine imaginable and the one should be listened to exactly as the other is drunk. You will probably find that it lacks substance, but you will certainly not find it stodgy '.

Written and produced by John Pudney with Sheila Moloney

Reginald Foort at the BBC
Theatre Organ
Music composed by Jack Clarke
This delightful play, to be revived tonight with its original cast, was considered by many the most distinctive radio play of its year when it was first broadcast in April, 1937. It prepared listeners for John Pudney's next success, every bit as brilliant, Ethel and Her Engine, which was broadcast in January this year.
Uncle Arthur concerns the Albions, husband and wife, who live in a suburban avenue with their little daughter Lily-not the least interesting person in the play. She spends her life waiting for something to happen, and the thing that happens provides the humour.
John Pudney's last work ' Edna's
Fruit Hat ' ran recently for five days as a serial short story in the News Chronicle. He has adapted it as a radio play, and the NBC in America, who produced the other two plays, have accepted it without reading it.

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.
