: THE FOUNDATIONS OF MUSIC

BRAHMS' VIOLIN and PIANO SONATAS played by WILLIAM PRIMROSE (Violin) and VICTOR HELY-HUTTCHINSON (Pianoforte) Sonata Movement (Scherzo) in C Minor
BRAHMS once collaborated with Schumann and another composer in writing a Violin and Pianoforte Sonata. The third man was Dietrich, a pupil of Schumann. It was Schumann who, in 1853, proposed that the three of them should compose a work specially for a concert that the violinist Joachim (always one of Brahms' greatest friends) was to give. Dietrich wrote the first Movement, Schumann the second, Brahms the third (the Scherzo we are to hear) and Schumann the last. At the head of the work Schumann wrote ' In anticipation of the arrival of our beloved and honoured friend Joseph Joachim , this sonata was written by Robert Schumann , Albert Dietrich and Johannes Brahms. '
Joachim kept the manuscript; the Movement by Brahms was not published until over fifty years later.
7.25 Sports Talk : Mr. F. J. COYNE: Doing it on your head'
DIVING can, according to the skill of the diver, be anything from a convenient way of getting into the water to a performance rivalling tight-rope walking in dexterity and ballet-dancing in grace. Mr. Coyne is a prominent member of the Amateur Diving Association-one of those people whom we have all seen on the news films doing jack-knife and swallow dives from incredible heights ; in fact, he is so eminent amongst them that he will probably represent Great Britain at the Olympic Games.

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.
