: BBC NORTHERN ORCHESTRA

(Leader, Reginald Stead )
Conducted by Vilem Tausky
The symphony in this programme is the fourth of the nine written by Dvorak (though only the last five, numbered 1-5, are regularly heard). It was written in 1174, when he was thirty-three, and in that year the scherzo from it was played in Prague under Smetana. The whole tymphony was first performed in 1892 at
Dvorak's farewell concert before he left for America; though itwas not pubbshed until 1912, after the composer s death. The four movements are marked respectively: Allexro, Andante < mollo cantabile, Allegro jeroce, and Allegro can brio. H.R.

: THE GREAT CONJUROR OF ENGLAND

John Dee
Talk by . I.R. F. Calder
The Great Conjuror of England was the phrase applied to John Dee by many of his contemporaries, and this picture of him has persisted ever once. The speaker, however, argues that far from being a conventional practitioner of * magic,' Dee. was an important link between medieval thinkers such as Roger Bacon and the • modern ' scientific movement inaugurated in the seventeenth century.
Mr. Calder is a Research Fellow at
Reading University and was formerly on the staff of the Warburg Institute. He has for some years been studying Dee's life and his contribution to science.

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.
