THE DON HYDEN STRING QUARTET:
DON HYDEN (1st Violin),' KEEM McENDOO (2nd Violin), MAURICE WARD (Viola), SYDNEY WRIGHT ('Cello)
ORIGINALLY written for String Orchestra, this is frequently played by the String Quartet. It is simply a collection of four delightful separate pieces, light as air.
FIRST MOVEMENT. (Quick). The lively First Main Tune starts at once in all instruments m octaves. It continues at some length, mostly in First Violin.
After a general flourish and a full stop. the Second Main Tune arrives. This is really in several little parts, which all follow one another with perfect naturalness. It starts with a mincing fragment of tune in Violins in octaves, which the Second Violin repeats, while the First Violin hops about above; then the Bass asserts itself, and so on. Soon we reach the end of the paragraph, so to speak. This first part is marked to be repeated. but that is usually thought superfluous nowadays.
The second part begins with a very brief discussion of bits of the two main tunes, then proceeds to repeat the first almost unchanged. With another general flourish, the piece ends. (The second part may also be repeated.)
The SECOND MOVEMENT is called a Romance.
It is a rather stately, thoughtful piece, mostly plainly tuneful.
THIRD MOVEMENT. This is a swinging, rhythmical Minuet, followed by. a smooth Trio (or second Minuet). After the Trio the Minuet is repeated.
The FINALE is a Rondo - a piece which owes its origin to a lively dance in which one tune comes round time after time.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome
