: Miss RHODA POWER: Boys and Girls of Other Days-XI, Two Great Adventures'

IN the reign of Charles II
London was visited by two of the greatest scourges that have ever fallen on the city-the Great Plague and the Great Fire. This afternoon Miss Rhoda Power will describe those terrible years, when men died like flies in the streets of London, and then came the conflagration that destroyed the old London of our forefathers and paved the way for the ' new ' London that is just vanishing in its turn.

: THE FOUNDATIONS OF MUSIC

BACH'S SONATAS FOR VIOLA DA GAMBA
AND CEMBALO played by HOWARD BLISS (Violoncello) and GORDON BRYAN
(Pianoforte)
Sonata No. I in G : First two Movements
THE three Sonatas we are to hear this week were written for the Viola da Gamba, or Bass Viol (literally 'Leg Viol,' because it was played resting between the legs), an instrument like the 'Cello, which was much favoured for solo playing and for accompaniments to songs.
Imagine the familiar 'Cello, with a longer neck, sloping shoulders, and six strings, and you have an idea of the Viola da Gamba.
The First Sonata Bach wrote for it (in G) was really an arrangement of a Sonata for two Flutes and Harpsichord. Its four Movements contain some of Bach's most charming music-spacious, thoughtful, and cheerful. Tonight we have the first two Movements, the first an eloquent Slow Movement, and the second a busy piece of a happily determined cast.

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.
