: THE FOUNDATIONS OF MUSIC

MOZART'S PIANOFORTE SONATAS
Played by ANGUS MORRISON
IN listening to Mozart's pianoforte Sonatas, it should be borne in mind that keyboard music had scarcely passed the transition stage from the old instruments of the elavichord group, to the modern pianoforte : oven the pianoforte of Mozart's day had a somewhat slender, delicate tone as compared with the modern concert grand. None the less, his pianoforte music lends itself well to performance on a present-day instrument, with all the fullness and resonance which that has at command; dainty and delicate as arc many of his effects, there are passages which do call for the fullest tone which present-day players can obtain from a big instrument.

: Should There Be a Channel Tunnel?

A discussion between the Rt Hon. William Bull Bt MP and Mr Gerald Barry.

For many years men of imagination both in England and in France have been making schemes for a Channel Tunnel, and for as long a time, at least, passengers on the Channel crossing have longed that their dreams might come true. Now the plan for a tunnel, which Napoleon adumbrated, has been revived, and it has become a matter of keen controversy again. Everywhere people are arguing about it, and tonight they will have a chance to hear its merits discussed by two exceptionally able controversialists - Sir William Bull MP, who is Chairman of the Channel Tunnel Parliamentary Committee, and Mr Gerald Barry, editor of The Saturday Review.

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.
