Sonata in E (Op. 109), Last Movement
THIS, marked ' Slowly, in a singing style, expressively,' is a set of six clearly-marked Variations on a tender Tune. The First varies the Tune but little; the Second is light (twelve notes to a bar) ; the Third, a lively minor one, keeps the left hand moving all the time ; the Fourth changes to three-time with three to a bar, and gives us solider, chordal harmony ; the Fifth has flowing internal parts, in the ' contrapuntal ' (= weaving) style ; the Sixth has many trills and rapid arpeggios. The original Tune is simply repeated as a Coda.
THIS talk begins what promises to be a most interesting series, in which a distinguished poet and critic of poetry will discuss the work of men who were overrated in their own time' and are in danger of being underrated in ours. Professor Lascelles Aber
' crombie is not himself a Victorian, but an-essentially modem poet. He was Lecturer in Poetry at Liverpool University from 1919 to 1922, when he accepted the Chair of English Literature at Leeds. Since then he has published three notable books on ' The Theory, of Poetry,' ' The Idea of Great Poetry,' and ' Romanticism.'

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.
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.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
