: Invitation to the Waltz

A Programme of Waltzes and Waltz
Songs by The MIDLAND
Directed by FRANK CANTELL and ALEX PENNEY (soprano)
The waltz, since the days of Lanner and the elder Johann Strauss , has been the most popular of all dances. Composers of every rank have written waltzes, but few of the really great ones have appealed to audiences and dancers alike, as have the lesser composers, but greater waltz-writers, such, for example, as some of those represented in this programme. Of these, Sir Edward German , Noel Coward , and Johann Strauss , need no comment. Waldteufel composed a great deal of dance music, particularly waltzes ; Millocker is well known by his musical comedy The Dubarry. The famous ' Destiny ' Waltz, is bv that old broadcasting friend of listeners, Sydney Baynes.

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.
