Fifth Sonata in E Minor
Adagio ma non Tanto; Allegro ; Andante ; Allegro
THIS begins with a slow Movement, the Flute winding its way in grave beauty, making a discourse with several points of effective climax and coming to a quietly powerful end.
The Second Movement is the man of action, springing off with lithe energy, ready for the chase, and never tiring; making us feel, at the end, that ho could as easily run over the course again without pausing to draw breath.
Next, of course, comes another contrast, but this slower Movement is very different from the opening one. This is all curving, long-breathing, lyrical melody, full of quiet happiness.
Follows the last Movement, a masterful Allegro, sweeping along imperiously and carrying us with it on the exhilarating course.
7.25 Prof. J. DOVER WILSON : ‘ Six Tragedies of Shakespeare (An Introduction for the Plain Man)-I, Shakespeare our Common Heritage' THE serious student of Shakespeare's plays will find awaiting him an enormous library of literature dealing with every possible problem— philological, artistic, historical, bibliographical— that could be discovered by the most inquiring mind. Professor Dover Wilson is himself Joint-Editor of tho New Cambridge Shakespeare and sen expert of the highest authority, but in these talks he will address not the student, but the plain man, who wants to know a little more about the plays in order to enjoy them more. This evening ho will survey the subject and point oat tho appeal of Shakespeare as the poet of the ordinary man.

: Speech by THE RT. HON.

THE EARL OF BALFOUR, O.M. on the occasion of the TENTH ANNIVERSARY DINNER
OF THE
ENGLISH-SPEAKING UNION
Relayed from the Hotel Victoria
THE English-Speaking Union, which exists to promote understanding and friendship between the British and the American peoples, was founded, on the basis of a previous organization, in 1918. Since then it has done much good work, which is being celebrated with this dinner tonight. The Earl of Balfour, whose speech will be broadcast, is a particularly appropriate speaker on such an occasion, for besides having much contact with the United States as Foreign Secretary and as Prime Minister, he headed the British Mission in 1917, and the Mission to the Washington Conference of 1921-22.

: A MILITARY BAND CONCERT

THE 'Three Fugal Fancies,' originally the three movements of a ' Fugal Sonata,' were first heard in England when Mr. Leslie Heword brought his Cape Town Orchestra to make a tour of England in 1925. Mr. Hely-Hutchinson, who was then connected with the South African College of Music, is now on the staff of tho B.B.C. at Savoy Hill, and has become well known as a composer and pianist.

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.
