: Anatomy of Music

Illustrated on the Gramophone by J. E. WALLACE, Mus.Doc.
I- 'Till Eulenspiegel 's Merry Pranks' (Strauss)
This begins a new series of Northern gramophone recitals designed for the listener who likes some explanation of the serious orchestral music he hears. Dr. J. E. Wallace , who will present the series, is a master of this difficult art. Last winter he came to the microphone regularly to give talks on music during the intervals in the Halle broadcasts, and listeners will remember how, at very short notice, he stepped into Sir Thomas Beecham's shoes to conduct the final Liverpool Philharmonic Concert last season.
Tonight he will discuss one of Richard Strauss's most famous tone poems, with actual musical illustrations on the gramophone-and then the complete work will be played throughout without comment.

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.
