: LANCASHIRE v. SURREY

An Eye-Witness Account by Mr. THOMAS MOULT of last day's play in the match at Old Trafford. S.B. from
Manchester SURREY 'S visits to Old Trafford have always something of the character of a challenge from the South to the North. Whatever may be their positions in the Championship table, neither Lancashire nor Surrey ever fails to play a game typical of the land of cricket that one associates with the North and South respectively at their best; Surrey's celebrated opening pair would draw a crowd on any ground, and the quick-scoring big hitters lower down in their batting order provide a spectacle that Lancashire crowds always enjoy, though they may not encourage their own batsmen to provide it. Against Surrey's brilliant batting Lancashire pits all the steadiness and tenacity of the North -deadly bowling, tireless fielding and batting that never breaks down.
Mr. Thomas Moult , who gives the description, is a poet, novelist and anthologist. and has at various times been an art-critic, dramatic critic and music critic.

: BEETHOVEN SONATAS

Played by JOHN PETRIE DUNN
Sonata in A (Op. 101), Last two Movements
AFTER the March Movement (with which
A yesterday's recital closed) Beethoven writes a very brief slow passage which is marked ' slow and full of great longing '—a. page of the loveliest texture, broken in upon by a reminiscence of the Sonata's opening Movement, ' like a gleam of sunshine,' as someone has happily said. Without further delay we are plunged into the long and magnificently built up Finale.

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.
