The Norbert Wethmar Pianoforte
Quintet:

Nathan Conwas (violin)
John Yewe Dyer (viola)
Walter Nunn (violoncello)
Wilfrid Parry (pianoforte)
Dvořáks Piano Quintet was written in 1887. It is one of the finest of his chamber works: ' an absolute revelation ', says Ottokar Sourek , ' of the personality of Dvorak, a man apparently locked within himself, moving only in the sphere of divine beauty, now plunged in gloomy meditation, his vision lost in eternity, now smiling brightly, bubbling over with happiness and breaking forth in outbursts of the frankest joy. Such a spirit was Dvorak, and thus he appears in this quintet-one of the freshest and most characteristic creations of his genius.' The composer makes brilliant use of the ' Furiant ' in the scherzo movement.

Concerto for small orchestra, Op. 34
Roussel
Debussy's ' L'Apres-midi d'un faune ' is a musical interpretation of a poem by the French poet, Stephane Mallarme. It has been said that the poem is so elusive in meaning, so subtle in its refinements of language, that it is practically untranslatable into another tongue. Debussy's is perhaps the only medium suited to an exposition of the poem.
The poem is concerned with a faun who, waking at dawn in the forest, tries to recall what happened to him before he fell asleep. His musings are confused with visions of nymphs who spent the afternoon with him and the possibility that the whole thing has been a dream coloured with the music of his own flute.

: AMATEUR BOXING

The Police of Great Britain v.
The Combined Services
A commentary on some of the fights by Dan Titchener from
Harringay Arena Here is a chance for those who either respect or fear the guardians nf law and order to see how the police constable fares when he really gets going with the gloves on. This is the thirteenth contest between the Police and the Combined Services, and so far the Bobbies have been unbeaten. They will put a formidable array of constabular flesh into the ring. Their team will include W. Gallagher of the Ulster Constabulary, formerly Irish and Scottish Welterweight Champion, and J. Mc. Mullen, the present Irish Heavyweight Champion. The Services, it is expected, will feel the loss of the four Air Force boxers who were killed in an air crash in Northern Rhodesia in April this year. Dan Titchener , who will give the commentary, will be remembered for past broadcasts in which he has given commentaries on various London matches. He is closely associated with arhateur boxing as a trainer and referee.

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.
