played by Marcella Barzetti
Barlumi (Gleams) dates from 1917; it consists of five impressionistic pieces in varying moods: Non lento rroppo, Lento, Vivace, Lento misterioso, and Molto vivace. The three Inventions are from a set of eight Petrassi wrote in 1944; they are headed: Moderamente mosso, scorrevole; Tranquillo; and Presto, leggero. The Divertimento Conirappuntislico, one of Ghedini's most considerable piano works, was composed in 1940. Casella's Six Studies were written in 1944; the first four, to be played in this programme, are Major Thirds (Presto), Major and Minor Sevenths (Allegro moto vivo). Legato Fourths (Moderate), and Repeated Notes (Allegro molto vivace ed agitato).

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.
