William Walton's ' Facade '
' Fagade ' was written in 1923, when the composer was twenty-one years of age. It was originally conceived as a series of poems by Edith Sitwell to be recited through a megaphone with musical accompaniment for flute, clarinet, saxophone, 'cello, trumpet, and percussion. These accompaniments are mostly in the form of very clever and witty parodies of popular dance tunes, ranging from the polka to the foxtrot. In 1926 Walton revised this work and also arranged an orchestral suite for concert use, consisting of some of the most popular numbers. Its great success encouraged him to bring out a second suite, which was heard for the-first time at a Promenade Concert on September 10 last year.
William Boyce
In his Preface to the eight symphonies of Boyce, which he has transcribed and edited for strings and wind, Constant Lambert points out that 'William Boyce (1710-1779) does not at the present day enjoy the renown as an instrumental composer that is rightly his as a choral composer, but the neglect into which his instrumental works have fallen is unaccountable for they rank among the finest compositions of their time, not only in England but in Europe. The eight symphonies (a word which Boyce uses to describe what would nowadays be considered a concerto grosso) are not only of great technical and historical interest but have a vigour and charm that are rarely found together '.

Reginald Kell (clarinet)
Only a few months before his death Mozart wrote a concerto for his friend Stadler, a fine player of the clarinet, for whom, two years before, he had written a quintet having a prominent part for his instrument. There are the usual three movements, the first and last abounding in vitality and resource, and the middle (slow) one in particular containing some lovely decorative work for the soloist.

'The Big Five (Joint Stock Banks)'
Alan Ivimey
In describing the functions of the 'Big Five' to the layman Alan Ivimey will be disclosing some of the mysteries that puzzle the average person in regard to high finance.
Money in a person's pocket means one thing, but money in the City is quite another matter, and Ivimey will show just how and why it is different. He will describe the story of the amalgamation of the 'Big Five' and give the reasons for it.
He will go on to discuss the loan and deposit systems, travellers' cheques, and the functions of the Clearing House. He will follow a cheque from the moment it is drawn until the moment it returns to the drawer in his passbook.

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.
