BEETHOVEN'S STRING QUARTETS
(Op. 18)
Played by THE KUTCHER STRING QUARTET:
Samuel Kutcher (violin) ; Frederick Grinke (violin) ; Raymond Jeremy (viola) ; Douglas Cameron (violoncello)
Quartet in F, Op. 18, No. i (concluded;
4. Allegro
Quartet in G (Op. 18, No. 2)
1. Allegro; 2. Adagio cantabile, Allegro, Tempo I
BEETHOVEN'S six string quartets, Op. 18, composed in 1800, were his first essays in this form that he considered worthy of being played and published. They are as rich in material and as finished in craftsmanship as any of the quartets of I laydn, with whose idiom they have much in common. All these six quartets attain a high level of achievement and show the working of a great and original creative mind which is perhaps at its most charming and happy in No. 2 in G, expressive and serious in the No. 3 in D and in the slow movement of the No. I in F, and at its most brilliant and vigorous in the No. 4 in C minor.

: ' Whither Britain ? '—11 The Rt. Hon. DAVID LLOYD GEORGE, O.M., D.C.L., LL.D., M.P.

TO ATTEMPT to summarise the life and achievements of David Lloyd George within the space of a note is as impossible as it seems unnecessary. He may be a Welshman, Carnarvon may have returned him to Parliament for forty-four years, but he is a national figure, his name and features known to everyone. '
Some know him banally as the ' Wizard of Wales ', some may have forgotten that he has been described as a greater War Minister than Pitt ; all can tell of his eloquence, but the thing apt to be overlooked in this man who, in power of place, was second to none in the world in 1918, is the fact that twenty years ago he was the driving force behind every social reform of our time.
Tonight he is to look into the future ; unique in that he, more than any man, carved and moulded the present, for better or worse, both out of peace and war.

: 'The Sea-Gull'

By ANTON TCHEHOV
The action takes place in the house and garden of Sorin's estate in Russia during the 'last decade of the last century.
There will be three brief intervals during the play to indicate the passage of time.
The play adapted for broadcasting and produced by BARBARA BURNHAM The Sea. Gull, Tchehov's second play, was first produced in St. Petersburg in 1896. It was given at the benefit performance of a popular comedienne of the day, and so puzzled the audience, who expected a comedy, bv its sombre theme and startling technique, that it was a' spectacular failure. But it achieved a success, when revived a few years later at the famous Moscow Art Theatre, that has been repeated in numerous productions in England and America, and the play has now passed into the international repertory. London first saw it in ioir, and it was revived at the Fortune Theatre in 1929. Tchehov has been represented several times before in the programmes, but mainly in his lighter moods. Three of his many burlesques-The Wedding, The Proposal, and The Bear-have provided light-hearted listening, and the last of his plays, The Cherry Orchard, which was revived with great success recently at Sadlers Wells and the Old Vie, was broadcast in 1929. The Sea-Gull brings another aspect of his genius to the microphone. In a typical Russian provincial setting towards the end of the last century, it presents, with extraordinary vividness, the emotional inter-actions of a set of varied people. But all of them are subordinate to the atmosphere and mood of the play, which is built up with infinitesimal touches, until it becomes the dominating impression.
This play was broadcast in the Regional programme last night.
An article on Tchehov and The Sea-
Gull appears on page 794.

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 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 find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

This is a historical record of both 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.
