Third Programme


Florence Hooton (cello)
BBC Northern Orchestra
(Leader, Reginald Stead )
Conductor, John Hopkins
Bax always looked upon his Cello Concerto as one of his best works, and hoped that one day it would be firmly established in the repertoire. It is one of the very few cello concertos in which every note of the soloist can be heard against the orchestral background. Bax's scoring is a marvel of subtlety as well as crystal clear; perhaps his most astounding feat is to use double-basses only to accompany a leading theme on the solo cello, and to do so with complete success.

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.
