EVANS (Violoncello)
HAYDN'S warm, genial nature is reflected in most of his music, especially, perhaps, in his String Quartets, which are of all ' classical' music the most easy-going to hear.
This one is called the ' Hornpipe ' Quartet, because the last Movement dances along much in that style.
Its other three parts are respectively a piquant opening Movement, based on two contrasted Tunes, then a short and tender song-like piece, with the usual Minuet as Third Movement.

Quartet in D Minor (' Death and the Maiden ') Allegro; Andante con moto, con variazione Scherzoâ??Allegro molto ; Presto-Prestissimo - Schubert
8.20 EDUARD STEUERMANN Rhondo in G - Beethoven
Thirty-two Variations in C Minor - Beethoven
8.35 Quartet in D, Op. 64, No. 5 (' The Lark ') Allegro moderato; Adagio cantabile: Menuetoâ?? Allegretto ; Finale-Vivace - Haydn

: ' Aims and Ideals in the Theatre—II,' Miss LILIAN BAYLIS

'THE OLD VIC' is, of course, a national institution. It may be regrettable, but we persist in keeping the flag of Shakespeare flying in the two parts of the country least accessible to the West Endiof London—Stratford - on-Avon and the Waterloo Road. In the latter Miss Baylis reigns supreme. She has made the ' Old Vic' a household word under her régime. She is acknowledged throughout the Empire for her services to Shakespeare and she is well on the way to making that Empire's capital safe for Shakespeare's plays.

The Scene : A Russian peasant hut
Tolstoy, the great Russian mystic, whose centenary was recently celebrated, believed so implicitly in the rewards of poverty that he divested himself of his rank and wealth to live the life of a peasant.
' What Men Live By ' is a story of how it was given to a poor cobbler and his family, because of their poverty, to entertain an archangel unawares.








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.
