Winter Sports'
THIS is the time of year when those with sufficient money and leisure are thinking of departing to Switzerland and exchanging the dark English winter for the sunny skies and snowy slopes of the Alps. There are no better sports in existence than ski-ing, skating and tobogganing (to say nothing of ice-hockey), all of which have their centre in Switzerland. Lord Northesk last year at St. Moritz won the two principal toboggan races-the Grand National and the Curzon Cup-so he is well qualified to describe the attractions of winter sports.

THE AMAR QUARTET : Licco AMAR,
PAUL HlNDEMITH , WALTER CASPAR , RUDOLF HINDEMITH
IT is strange that a man who is of Spanish origin, was born and educated in France, and has lived in Switzerland, should come to be regarded as a German Composer. When one learns that, added to such a history, the most powerful influence in Jarnnch's music is that of an Italian, Busoni, one's brain begins to reel. Busoni, however, lived many years in Germany, was a very individual and cosmopolitan figure, and as far as one can classify him, probably comes nearest to the modern German school. Similarly, Jarnach (bom 1892) has gone to Germany, and his music has gained something of the modern German concentration and sternness, but also retains much of the Latin clarity and colouring. This String Quartet of his is in two Movements. the First ' Fairly sustained,' the Second ' Quick, very lively, and with fire.'

Amongst the plays in which she has appeared are The Belle of Bohemia, The Belle of New York, A Chinese Honeymoon, and Society Ltd., and she is well known on the halls.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome
