EVEN before Paderewski made his first appearance as a brilliant young pianist in London in 1890, his Minuet in G was already appreciated in this country. As a composer, however, Paderewski has never repeated his one popular success. But he -has, in fact, composed a good deal of music of all kinds. His opera Manru had successes in Dresden and New York, his Symphony in B minor-a very long work based largely on Polish themes-was heard here twenty-five years ago under Richter. It is therefore unfair to consider him rperely as a composer of such trifles as ' Six Humoresques de Concert', from which collection the Minuet in G is taken.
WHEN Sir Nigel Playfair staged Sheridan's The Duenna at the Lyric Theatre, Hammersmith, in the palmy days of h;s great Hammersmith adventure, he naturally relied on his Musical Director, Alfred Reynolds, to see to the musical side of the production. The making of incidental stage music is related as much to craft as to art, and of the few musicians that.can do it really well, and are both good artists arid thoroughly competent craftsmen, Alfred Reynolds is high in the list.

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.
