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.
DAME FORTUNE'S 'My PROGRAMME'
Wherein certain sealed envelopes, containing selected programme items, will be placed in a hat, and drawn by certain Artists, well known to the Children's Hour and previously pledged to perform whatsoever DAME FORTUNE may choose to allot to them.
ONE of the most ancient, as it is one of the most intellectual, games played by mankind, chess is by now almost an exact science, and it can be discussed in an almost scientific vein. The very large number of listeners who are also chess enthusiasts will welcome this evening's talk in which Mr. Brian Harley , Chess Editor of The Observer, will discuss that popular opening move, the Queen's Gambit Declined. Two diagrams illustrative of this talk will be found on pages 370 and 371.
LAST week Lord Melchett opened this series of talks by discussing ' tho rationalization of industry.' This evening Mr. Citrine will explain the attitude of organized labour-a .factor in the economic scheme, the importance of which can hardly bo over-estimated, and one on which, as General Secretary of the Trades Union Congress, he is well qualified to speak. Future talks in this series will be given by H. D. Henderson (' The New Industrial Revolution '), Major Walter Elliott. M.P. ('The Trend of Our World Trade '), Miss Lynda Grier (' Women in Industry '), and. Sir Herbert Samuel (' What of the Future ? ').
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.

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
