: The Foundations of Music

SCHUBERT'S PIANOFORTE SONATAS
Played by JAMES CHINO
Grouse (Great) Sonata in A (3rd and 4th Movements)
The third movement is a full-sized Scherzo, not unlike the Scherzos of Beethoven.
The first theme is divided between the right and left hands, and the second section of the movement begins with both hands in the bass. The Trio is shorter, and its effect is made largely by unexpected intrusions on the third beat of the bar, sometimes at the top of the keyboard, and sometimes in the bass.
The last movement is a dainty Rondo, in which the principal theme is heard at the outset, returning ever and anon after episodes of the most varied interest have interrupted its' reappearances. The movement comes to an end with a brilliant Presto in which the melody begins in the bass.

SONGS by Montague Phillips figure constantly in programmes, and much of his music is popular in the best sense of the word. The attractive music to The Rebel Maid is also his. But his music is not all of the light-hearted order which listeners know best; he has composed in more serious vein, and his larger works include a Symphony, a Symphonic Poem on the subject of Boadicea, an Overture (called 'Heroic Overture') and a pianoforte concerto.
Born in 1885 he was a distinguished pupil of the Royal Academy of Music, of which he is now a Fellow. He has also held the posts of Professor of Composition and Examiner there...

: Mr. GERALD HEARD: Ghosts '

CHRISTMAS, the season of Marley's ghost and Gabriel Grub and a host of other such stories, is an appropriate time to talk about ghosts. And we can again talk seriously and sincerely about ghosts and about the Thing, for, as Mr. Heard will show, the Victorian rationalism and purblind science that killed Marley and the goblins has been itself killed by a greater knowledge that brings us again to the threshold of the unseen. Mr. Heard will be remembered as a protagonist in some of the most stimulating broadcast discussions and debates, and he is the author of an interesting book of philosophy— ' Focus '—which will shortly appear.

: Vaudeville

with JACK PAYNE and THE B.B.C. DANCE ORCHESTRA








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.
