by Lena Wood (viola)
Doris Watkins (pianoforte)
Bloch's Suite for viola and piano, which won a Coolidge prize, was written while the composer was living in New York in 1919. It is said that each movement is intended to suggest the atmosphere of different oriental countries, and that the composer at first labelled each movement with a title but afterwards decided not to bother the listener with programatic implications. Ernest New-man has said of this work: Here is - a mind of the most definite individuality, that can say things in music that have never been said before, and say them beautifully and convincingly without any resort to extravagance in idiom '.

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.
