: Special Civic Week Programme. TUESDAY MIDDAY SOCIETY'S CONCERT.

Relayed from the Houldsworth Hill
HAYDN'S genial, warm nature comes out in most of his music, especially, perhaps, in his String Quartets, which are of all 'classical' music the most easy-going to hear.
This Quartet is in the usual four Movements, of which the First is vigorous, the Second slow and expressive, tho Third a Minuet, and the Last a sparkling, happy, dance-like Movement.
The Beethoven work is light-hearted, easy-going music-the composer at his brightest. He was over thirty when (about 1800) he wrote his first six String Quartets, and grouped them together as his ' Opus 18.' The Second String Quartet consists of the usual four detached Movements.

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.
