: Mr. E. FITCH DAGLISH: Some Common Garden Animals-V, The Earwig '

THE sight of an earwig usually inspires aversion tempered by fear, and its name is certainly against it from the start; but it possesses a large and very beautiful pair of wings, which it never seems to use, and various other redeeming qualities tvhich Mr. Fitch Daglish will describe in his talk this afternoon, in which he will deal also with some of the Myriapoda, or many-legged.

: A LIGHT CLASSICAL CONCERT

PERCY MANCHESTER (Tenor)
DAVID WISE (Violin), TATE GILDER (Violin), GERSHOM PARKINGTON (Violoncello), GERALD DINGLEY
(Pianoforte)
DAVID WISE , TATE GILDER and GERALD DINGLEY
(With Pianoforte Accompaniment)
THE Movements of the Concerto are as follows :
FIRST MOVEMENT.-The interest of this lies in a happily bustling tune, taken up in alternation by the two Violin parts. Sometimes one Solo Violin starts a Tune which is then taken up (almost iti Fugue style) by the other.
Note especially the opening Tune; this is important. It often recurs, and may bo looked upon as the Main Tune of the Movement.
SECOND MOVEMENT.—This is a very expressive Movement, and has become famous. Wo have, in fact, a Violin Duet, with a quiet accompaniment.
THIRD MOVEMENT.—In spirit, style, and construction this is so like the First Movement as to call for little description.
The Solo Violins begin in imitation at a mere beat's distance, and keep up a vigorous and cheerful motion all through.
I sigh'd andpin'd ; There's nothing so fatal as woman; Fled is my love; 'Tis death alone can give me ease; I'll mount to yon blue cœlum ; I'll sail upon the dog-star; If thou wilt give me back my love.

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

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
