Conducted by J. CHALMERS PARK,
This fugue, known as the ' giant' because of an unusual, heavy-footed rhythm written for the pedals, has for its subject the first line of a Lutheran choral, ' We believe in one God, the Creator'. Written for organ, it is here arranged for a string orchestra.
The minuets are taken from a small collection of keyboard pieces known as ' The little book of Anna Magdalena '. Bach's second wife, Anna Magdalena , was already something of a musician when Bach married her, and held an appointment as court-singer in the small duchy of Anstalt-Zerbst. Anxious that she should pursue her studies, Bach wrote for her a number of little studies to be used in the course of his instructing her. These pieces are delightful, and the world is grateful to the lovable helpmate of the great man for carefully preserving the famous green-covered manuscript hook and passing it on to posterity.

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.
