Conducted by A. McGUCKIN
When Johann Strauss wrote his ' Tales from the Vienna Woods ' he probably had no other idea about it than that it should be danced to. He may have thought of it as an entertaining concert piece ; he certainly knew it to be a more than ordinarily good bit of work ; but he could scarcely have imagined that, more than fifty years after it was written, it would remain one of the most popular pieces in the whole repertory of waltzes, that the world-famous
Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by the equally famous conductor, Bruno Walter , would include it in one of the two programmes given on one of their rare visits to London, as they did at the Royal Albert Hall a few months ago. Listeners who heard the performance on that occasion realised what an exquisite, gossamer thing it is, and why the crown of the ' Waltz King ' has never passed to a successor.

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.
