Kenneth Essex, who was born in 1915, studied at Morley College and later with Alan Bush. His Wind Quintet was written in 1940, and was given its first performance in a concert of the Society for the Promotion of New Music five years later. It is in four movements: Allegro moderaio, Andante pastorale, Scherzo (Allegretto giocoso), and Spiriloso.
Racine Fricker, whose second symphony was given at the Festival of the International Society for Contemporary Music held in Oslo this year, completed his Wind Quintet in 1947. Awarded the Clements Memorial Prize that year, it was first performed in a concert in the Third Programme in 1948 by the Dennis Bran Wind Quintet, and was the first of his works to bring him to the notice of the public. It is in four movements: Moderato leading to Allegro moderato, Badinerte and Musette, Canonic Variations, and Vivo (D. C.)

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.
