: THE B B C NORTHERN IRELAND ORCHESTRA

Leader, Philip Whiteway
Conductor, E. GODFREY BROWN
'In the Steppes of Central Asia'.
Borodin's ' In the Steppes of Central Asia ' was originally written as a musical background to one of a series of historical tableaux vivants shown during the celebrations of the silver jubilee of the Tsar Alexander II, in 1880. The music illustrates the following scene : ' The silence of the sandy steppes of Central Asia is interrupted by the first sounds of a peaceful Russian song. Then the melancholy refrain of an Oriental song is heard, and with it the tramp of horses and camels. A caravan escorted by Russian soldiers is crossing the immense desert, fearlessly continuing its long journey under the protection of the Russian troops. The caravan proceeds on its way. The songs of the Russians and those of the Asiatics gradually blend together in the same harmony ; their refrains are heard for some time and finally die away in the distance.'
Italian Composer of Shakesptare Songs. Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco was born at Florence in 1895, and studied under the famous Italian composer Ildebrando Pizzetti. He has composed a considerable amount of music, chiefly choral and vocal. Among the latter is a series of Shakespeare songs, set to the original English words.

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.
