THIS comparatively slight work of John
Ireland's presents no difficulty at all to the listener; from beginning to end it is frankly melodious, and its themes are all good-going tunes which are easily remembered. There are four sections, although tho work is played without a break. The violencello begins the first with a fine broad melody, which the violin aftenvards takes up. It is heard more than once at later stages of the Trio, notably in tho third section, which is largely a repetition of the first. The second is the only slow part, and tho last is very lively.

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.
