Henri Rabaud , a pupil of Massenet and winner of the Prix de Rome in 1894, became director of the Paris Conservatoire when Faure retired in 1920. He had previously held conducting posts at the Opera-Comique and Opera in Paris, and just after the war he spent a year in America as conductor of the Boston Symphony Orchestra.
Most of his works have been written for the stage, the most successful being the comic opera Marouf, on a story from the ' Arabian Nights '. His only chamber compositions are two early works: a String Quartet in G minor, Op. 3, and this ' Andante and Scherzetto '.

: 'NIGHT SHIFT'

A broadcast describing the activities of The London Ambulance Service from
An Ambulance Station
County Hall, Westminster and A London Street
Every day there are scores of street accidents in London. Every day the slick white ambulances of the L.C.C. service are rushed North, South. East, and West, with clanging bells, to collect casualties and take them to the various hospitals. Tonight's programme is an effort to reconstruct the story behind a single street casualty, and to show how it is dealt with by the ambulance men. Microphones will be placed by the telephone switchboard of the County Hall, to which all calls in connection with the ambulance service come through, at the ambulance station at the Elephant and Castle, and in a street near the Waterloo Hospital, where the ' accident' has taken place. Messrs. Woodrooffe, Standing, and Snagge, respectively, will be at these various points to give listeners an account of what is going on.

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.
