: A Light Classical Concert

AMINA LUCCHESI (Violin) and MAR
GERY CUNNINGHAM (Pianoforte)
It is not, perhaps, an accident that Edgar, the persecuted son of Gloucester, makes the only speech in the play which seems to reply to that piece ot pessimism :
Men must endure
Their going hence, even as their coming hither : Ripeness is all.
Some melancholy, no doubt, lay in Shakespeare's mind when he wrote this play .which swelled into the deeper melancholy and misanthropy of Timon of Athens ; but the mood did not last to the end of his life. It lifted, and the great poet, remembering his 'potent art,' abjured his ' rough magic ' after he had made ' some heavenly music' and broke his staff and died. The Tempest was his farewell to the world ; and it is rich and lovely and full of peace. Old Lear had come to quietness at last.

: THE FOUNDATIONS OF MUSIC

BRAHMS PIANOFORTE MUSIC (Second Series)
Played by HOWARD-JONES
Waltzes from Op. 39 (not played in previous
Brahms Week). Nos. 7, 8, 14, 9, 12, 16, 13
SINCE the time when the German country-dance became the waltz of the ballroom, has any composer of importance existed who has not written waltzes ? With some of the greatest composers, their waltzes have been among their most lovable compositions. Probably many people would feel that Brahms never wrote more beautiful music than in some of his waltzes. Yet, strangely enough, some of the best of them are not at all frequently heard.
Tonight we are to hear a selection from the sixteen widely varied waltzes of Op. 39.

: Mr. CHARLES HENDERSON: Cornwall and the Cornish ; their History, Language and Traditions.' S.B. from Plymouth

THE far comer of England, to which retreated, centuries ago. the Celts of Britain with all their faery lore, Cornwall is rich in legend and mythology, where Arthur and his knights rub shoulders with giants and pixies and trolls. Mr. Henderson, who is lecturer in Cornish History at University College, Exeter, has a rich mine of material in which to dig for this evening's talk.

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.
