: A Light Classical Concert THE SYLVAN TRIO:

John Francis (flute) ; Sylvia Spencer (oboe); Millicent Silver (pianoforte)
MYRA MACNICOL (contralto)
The name of Johann Joachim Quantz was once familiar to every knowledgeable musician in Europe as composer and flautist. Today, after a century and a half, he is almost forgotten. Born at Gottingcn in 1697, he was thus a younger contemporary of Bach and Handel, both of whom he survived by twenty years or so. Quantz began to play the double bass-of all instruments !—at eight. But his father, a blacksmith, was anxious for his son to follow in his own footsteps. From that fate he was saved by a sympathetic uncle, and the bov was soon set free to study the ait he loved.
His career was successful and not without colour. At nineteen he entered the Chapel of the King of Poland where, rather tardily, he began to study the instrument that brought him fame. A few years later we find him in Naples, hob-nobbing with Domenico Scarlatti and other well-known Italian musicians. In 1727 he spent three months in London. Next year Quantz acquired his most celebrated pupil, the Crown Prince of Prussia, afterwards Frederick the Great, and from that time onward his fortune was assured.

Part 2 : ' Humanism and Morals ' 2—' Individual and Social Ethics '
. W. G. DE BURGH, Ph.D.
This evening Professor W. G. de Burgh is to show what is meant by personality. He will discuss the history of the word and point out its double application both to the unique nature of the individual and to his social environment. He will argue that morality presupposes an act of self-assertion, but its life consists in establishing concord among members of a society. He will speak of freedom and social authority, and show that duty :s not exhausted by the fulfilment of social obligations. There are duties that point beyond the limits of any finite society.

: Freedom—II

G. K. CHESTERTON
Few voices can be more familiar to the ordinary listener than G. K. C.'s. He made his microphone debut as long ago as April, 1925, when he pleaded for the saving of Sadler's Wells. During 1933-3 and again during the past winter he has given brilliant series of book talks, witty, profound, paradoxical -in short, Chestertonian. For Chesterton has deservedly received that literary accolade, the formation of an adjective from his surname.
No living Englishman is better fitted to speak on freedom. For throughout the thirty-odd years during which he has been delighting us as poet, critic, essayist, and fantastic novelist, Chesterton has always been a fearless champion of the rights of the individual.

NORMAN ALLIN (bass)
IRENE SCHARRER (pianoforte)
The Ballade in F minor is one of Chopin's finest works, written at the height of his maturity and showing no traces of the mental weariness of which one is sometimes conscious in his last compositions. More than one good judge has stated his opinion that this Ballade is the greatest thing Chopin ever wrote. Like the other three Ballades, the piece has a definitely narrative character that has tempted many a commentator to identify it with some particular story, a Polish folk-legend or poem. But every listener is free to interpret the music as he pleases or, if he prefers, to listen to it as pure music, without thought of a story at all.

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, and programmes to purchase from BBC Store and other providers.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.
