: Household Talk: Mrs. THOMPSON,' Warm Drinks for Winter Evenings '

WITH the coming of the really cold weather tho cool drinks of summer have been finally put out of mind, and in the winter evenings comfort-loving people like to console themselves with a last warm drink before leaving the red warmth of the sinking fire for the comparative cold of the bedroom. In this talk Mrs. Thompson will describe the mixtures for a few particularly comforting drinks.

: THE FOUNDATIONS OF MUSIC'

BACH'S FRENCH SUITES
Played by JAMES CHING
First French Suite in D Minor
THE ' French ' Suites of pieces for the Clavier
(i.e., nowadays, for the Piano) are a set of six which Bach wrote about 1720-1722 for his second wife, Anna Magdalena , to play. Their gracious, friendly spirit suggests that Bach and his wife were very happy together.
It was not Bach's idea to call the Suites
' French.' This was a nickname, probably bestowed by the family, to distinguish them for their lightness-this being a characteristic of French music in those days, as ever since. There is nothing French about them.
The Suites contain from six to eight pieces in dance styles, the four foundational Movements being the Allemande, flowing with continuous easy swing; the slow, stately Sarabande; the lively running Courante, and the capering Gigue.
The Allemande, Courante and Sarabande came . first, second and third respectively. The other two, three or four places are filled by various dances, the Minuet appearing in several of the suites. The full list of the Movements in each of the six Suites runs thus :-
FIRST SUITE. Allemande, Courante, Sarabande,
First Minuet, Second Minuet, Gigue.
SECOND SUITE. Allemande, Courante, Sarabande, Air, Minuet, Gigue.
THIRD SUITE, Allemande, Courante, Sarabande, First Minuet, Second Minuet, Anglaise (a lively, skipping piece), Gigue.
FOURTH SUITE, Allemande, Courante, Sarabande, Gavotte, Minuet, Air, Gigue.
FIFTH SUITE, Allemande, Courante, Sarabande, Gavotte, Bouree, Louie (an old French dance, so named because in olden days the bagpipe accompanied it), Gigue.
SIXTH SUITE, Allemande, Courante, Sarabande, Gavotte, Polonaise, Bouree, Minuet, Gigue.

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.
