BEETHOVEN'S PIANOFORTE SONATAS
Played by EDWARD ISAACS Sonata in E, Op. 14, No. 1
Allegro; Allegretto ; Rondo (Allegro comodo)
WITHOUT any introduction, the first movement plunges at once into the happy first subject, a blend of vigour and playfulness. The second subject is a little more thoughtful, but the movement, on the whole concise and clear-cut in design, is in bright good spirits.
The second movement is a simple Allegretto in minor with a contrasting middle section in C major, and the last movement is a Rondo which, like the first movement, announces'its main tune at the outset.

: Professor H. Munro Fox: Mind in Animals: II: The Role of Smell in the Animal World

Relayed from Birmingham
Following closely upon his first talk, Professor Fox proceeds to the problem of smell in the animal world. The importance of this sense can perhaps best be gauged by the fact that to the ordinary animal his nose is as essential as eyes are to man, the majority of animals hunting and living by scent rather than by sight.

THE National CHORUS
Conducted by THE COMPOSER
THE HILLSIDE is a Ballade for Soprano
* and Baritone solo voices, chorus, and orchestra to words from The Gardener, by Rabindranath Tagore. It was first performed by the Halle Choir and Orchestra in Manchester in November, 1927, when it received an enthusiastic welcome. It begins with an orchestral prelude in which a leading theme is heard at the outset. It is eloquently set forth by the whole orchestra, and after a second, more lyrical, melody has been heard, there is a quicker section with another theme of which a good deal of use is made later. A brief return of the second theme leads straight into the opening chorus, telling of a maid who dwelt on the hillside, and of women who came to fill their jars of water at the stream. One evening a stranger came down from the mountains, one whose appearance brought fear to the hearts of those who saw him, and next morning the little maid had vanished. The others wondered ' Is there a spring in the land where she is gone ? ' At that point, to music built up on the first opening theme heard in the prelude, the chorus divides into eight parts, with the words, ' We asked each other in dismay, " Is there a land beyond these hills where we live ?'''There is then an orchestral interlude founded chiefly on the two first themes from the prelude; it leads to a baritone solo which tells of a vision of the maiden who had vanished. Her own voice is heard.in an expressive solo telling of the land where she; is gone, and the Ballade comes to an end with a short chorus joining the two solo voices.

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.
