(By kind permission of Lieut. Colonel J. Bois ,
D.S.O., M.C.)
Conducted by Mr. A. T. S. CHANDLER
Chopin did hot invent the Nocturne ; the man who did was John Field , an Irishman who spent most of his time in Russia and is always supposed to have Chopin considerably in his debt. He was certainly the originator of that type of music which Chopin developed with genius, and made practically his own. Field's Nocturnes are still played, and for that matter are still beautiful. But his life was not so beautiful, at least the latter part of it. He was indolent, intemperate, and dissipated, though he never lost his power to move audiences by his exquisite playing. He was, in his youth, a pupil of Clementi, who could find nothing better for him to do than to keep him in a warehouse showing off pianos to customers, an early example of salesmanship which, no doubt, brought results. e BAND

: Malvem Festival Concert

(By arrangement with Sir Barry Jackson )
Conducted by LESLIE HEWARD
HARRIET COHEN (pianoforte)
Relayed from
The Concert Hall, Winter Gardens
Nights in The Gardens of Spain Falla The composer insists that this work is neither a concerto nor is it programme music ; the title alone should convey what he intended. His idea was to evoke the memory of places, sensations, and sentiment, and the music is not descriptive, but merely expressive. The sounds of festival and dance run through these Nights, but melancholy and mystery have their part in the scheme also.

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.
