Synopsis

We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
ROBERT MAITLAND (Baritone)
THE ZIMMER STRING QUARTET:
ALBERT ZIMMER (Violin): FREDERICK GHIGH (Violin); EDOUARD PIEL (Viola);
EMILE DOEHARD (Violoncello)
THE form of the first movement is unusual. It begins with a gently moving Allegretto, built up on a happy tune like a rather swift Barcarolle, from which lively little variations are made, and then the movement passes to a brisk Allegro whose tune is the same as the beginning of the first part.
The slow movement, although called ' 'Sad'
(Mesto) has really nothing deeply melancholy about it, and the fine big tune with which the first violin opens the movement is quite a serene and contented one. There is a little hint of sadness when the same tune appears later on the lower strings, but on the whole the movement is like Haydn's inimitable good spirits.
The Minuet and Trio are both brisk and light. footed, and the last movement is really frolicsome and gay. Anyone who can listen to its almost mischievous good spirits without a thought of laughter is indeed in a sorry frame of mind.

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.
