'Music and the Ordinary Listener'

: Two-Piano Music-Interpreted by ISABEL

GRAY and CLAUDE POLLARD
THE theme is that which begins the Trio
(i.e., the central portion) of the Minuet. in Beethoven's Sonata, Op. 31, No. 3. The two pianos give out this tune antiphonally. and then proceed to five ingenious and enjoyable Variations. The Fourth of these is in the style of a Funeral March, and then, after a trill and a cascade of notes, the final section starts in fugal style, one piano setting forth the melody and the other taking up the chase, the two working up the fugue very brilliantly.

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.
