: THE BOURNEMOUTHMUNICIPAL ORCHESTRA

Leader, Harold Fairhurst
Conductor, Richard Austin
Solo violin, Zacharewitsch from the Pavilion, Bournemouth
Schumann's Symphony No. 3, in E flat was composed during 1830. It was inspired by a visit to Cologne, where Schumann was deeply impressed with the famous view of the Rhine and the Seven Hills, and above all the Cathedral. Although the Rhenish Symphony is by no means a perfect symphony, particularly from the point of view of orchestration and development of thematic material, it is, however, full of lovely music, which has a certain rustic simplicity and charm.
' If the impressive fourth movement ', says Sir Donald Tovey , ' is regarded as part of the Finale, not merely as introductory, then the final quick movement will become intelligible as the natural and almost lyric reaction from the awe inspired by the Cathedral of Cologne as described in one of the finest pieces of ecclesiastical polyphony since Bach.'

: 'WHERE AFRICA STILLIS DARKEST'

L. C. Lelard
In spite of modern developments in the means of transport and communication, there are still parts of Africa about which very little is known. One such place is Gaboon, in French Equatorial Africa.
Mr. L. C. Lelard , a member of a very large trading concern in Gaboon, is at present in England on leave. This afternoon he is going to tell us something about Gaboon, where Africa still is darkest.

: 'THE CLASSIC SOIL*

Manchester today and a hundred years ago
Script by Joan Littlewood
Recorded and produced by Olive Shapley
For a full century the industrial tradition of Manchester has remained unbroken. The people who work the mills of ' Cottonopolis ' today are the direct descendants of those men whom the industrial revolution swept into its coils in the early eighteen hundreds, and Manchester richly merits the judgment of Frederick Engels , the great German philosopher, when he described it and South Lancashire as the classic soil on which English manufacture achieved its master-work '. This quotation occurs in Engel's work ' The Condition of the Working Class in England in 1844' from which tonight's picture of the Manchester of a hundred years ago will be largely taken.
Contrasted with this will be a microphone impression of Manchester today, composed from records made by the present inhabitants of that city, descendants of the people with whom Engels spoke.

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.
