fTHESE are among the pieces Brahms wrote
. for a choir of ladies that in his early days he conducted at Hamburg. He gets some lovely effects from his unusual accompaniment. Note "this, for instance, in the Shakespeare song Come away, Death, and observe the gracious, easy charm of Greetings (called in the original Dor Gärtner—The car dener) and the sadness of the last, a fine setting of some words (attributed to Ossian) on The Death of Trenar, a hero who was killed by Cathullin.

: ELSIE STELL (Violin) and MARGARET ABLETHORPE (Pianoforte)

IN Mr. MeEwen's Sonata, in one Movement, there is great interest for the player and much beauty of an inward-looking kind.
His chamber music (some fourteen Quartets, four Sonatas, etc.) is perhaps less well-known than that of some writers of today. It is never extravagant, always well-knit and logical, the product of a philosophical mind.

A Poetic Play by JOHN DRINKWATER
A mountain cottage on a midwinter night.
Outside a snowstorm rages. Alice is looking out through the window, while Joan. her younger sister, and Sarah, an old neighbour woman, are sitting over the fire. Alice's husband has failed to return home at his usual hour, and owing to the croakings of old Sarah, the foreboding of some terrible happening is fretting the younger woman. The story gives her hopes .and fears.

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.
