The Firebird, written in 1910, established Stravinsky's claim to be considered the true heir of Rimsky-Korsakov and the other great Russian nationalists. Only two actual folk-melodies are used in the score-the lovely theme of the finale is one of them -but the influence of Rimsky-Korsakov (above all, of The Golden Cockerel) is apparent on every page. At the same time, The Firebird is far from being merely second-hand Korsakov. It is extraordinarily mature, especially when one remembers that Stravinsky had been a student only a year or two previously.

' The Honourable The Irish Society'
Sir CHARLES BATHO , Bt., Governor of the Society
It was in 1609, after the rebellion of the O'Neills and the O'Dohertys, that their vast lands in Ulster became forfeit to the Crown. Though they were unwilling, James I forced the City of London to accept a charter for the plantation of Ulster, and they raised £ 20,000 to carry it out. The City formed their Irish Society to govern the Province, and to this day the Society still owns a great deal of Northern Ireland, and spends its money in benefactions to the country. The speaker tonight, Sir Charles Batho , Bt., is Governor of the Society and a former Lord Mayor of London.

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.
