: A Sonata Recital

JULIUS ROSTALL (Violin)
HENRY BRONKHURST (Pianoforte)
THE Pianoforte alone begins the first movement with the principal tune, which the violin takes up almost immediately. Although in the minor key, the movement has nothing sombre nor melancholy about it, and its second principal tune is a lively and vigorous one.
The second movement begins in the same way, pianoforte first, and then the violin, playing a melody, one of Beethoven's fine broad tunes. There is a short Scherzo with sprightly melody shared by the two instruments in the same way as in the first two movements ; in the ' Trio,' or middle section, the violin begins the tune, pianoforte imitating him in the bass.
There are two contrasted themes in the last movement, one depending largely for its effect on a sudden rise from quiet to very loud tone, and a flowing song-like tune.

: Sir Nigel Playfair: Aims and Ideals in the Theatre: IV

Sir Nigel Playfair hardly needs introduction to our readers. Manager, almost discoverer, of the Lyric, Hammersmith, the man responsible for the enchanting revivals of The Beggar's Opera, and so many other costume plays and ballad operas, and the latest created of theatrical knights, Sir Nigel has always been found on the side of the angels of good taste, decorativeness, and charm.

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.
