CHARLTON, The Power of the Poet '-III

: BAND MUSIC by the MORECAMBE MUNICIPAL MILITARY BAND, conducted by EDWARD DUNN, Director of Music to the Morecambe Corporation.

Relayed from the West End Bandstand, Morecambe
5.0 ZENA BELL (Pianoforte)
A LTHOUGH she is only in her eighteenth year,
A Miss Zena Bell has already made a name for herself. A native of Widnes, she studied in London, and at the age of fifteen won the coveted Trinity College Gold Medal, creating a record by getting the highest number of marks ever obtained in the British Isles for that examination.
COUNT WALDSTEIN, to whom Beethoven dedicated this Sonata, was an early and warm friend of the Composer.
The Sonata, written when the Composer was thirty-four, is a work of grandeur, but, in spite of the big scale on which it is laid out, it is actually in only two separate Movements.
The FIRST MOVEMENT is tumultuous music.
Chiefly it consists of rapid repeated chords, abrupt, curt little phrases, and surging waves of sound. With these is contrasted simple, tranquil melody.

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.
