: THE FOUNDATIONS OF MUSIC

STRING TRIOS BY BEETHOVEN
Played by KENNETH SKEAPING (Violin)
BERNARD SHORE (Viola)
EDWARD J. ROBINSON (Violoncello)
Op. 9, No. 2, Third and Fourth Movements Op. 8, First and Third Movements
THE Serenade was a popular form of composition towards the end of the 18th century. More elastic and comprehensive even than the Suite, it especially met the requirements of a time when small private orchestras abounded and tastes inclined to short pleasing movements. The Serenade could be written for any instruments, and in any number and variety of movements, although it was customary to include always a March and a Minuet. Belonging to the same class of composition are the Divertimento and the Cassation.
Beethoven wrote two Serenades-the String
Trio, Op. 8, of which the first and third movements are now to be played, and another (Op. 25) for flute, violins and violas. Although the former must have been one of Beethoven's very earliest compositions, the most accomplished master might have been proud to have written such lovely music as is contained in its several sections. The movements to be played this evening are the opening March and the charming Minuet, neither of which will present any difficulties to the hearer.

: Professor H. MUNRO Fox : ' Mind in Animals —I, What Colours can Animals See ? ' Relayed from Birmingham.

THIS is the first of a series of six talks by Professor Munro Fox , who is Professor of Zoology at the University of Birmingham and sometime Fellow of Caius College, Cambridge. He is an authority on all zoological matters, and his books include ' Selene, or Sex and the Moon ' and ' Blue Blood in Animals.' In his first talk he will cover the interesting question of whether animals see colours as we do, and if so, what colours they see.

: A Discussion

Between
Capt. HARRY GRAHAM and Mr. BERNARD DARWIN
' The Limiting of the Golf Ball'
THERE is no golfer, from the par-slaughtering professional to the business man who plays for exercise on Saturday afternoons, who does not hold strong views on the proposal to limit the size and weight of the ball. This burning question, which has been so widely and vigorously; discussed on courses and in club-houses, in railway carriages, offices and bars, will be debated tonight by two very amusing talkers-Captain Harry Graham , the author of 'The World We Laugh In,' Strained Relations.' and the books of many successful musical comedies, and Mr. Bernard Darwin , the famous amateur golfer, who is. the most accomplished of all writers on the * game.

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.
