: The Younger Generation and its Problems-VIII, Professor P. J. NOEL BAKER: Athletics for Boys'

IT is probably no exaggeration to say that the backbone of any successful young people's organization is its provision and capacity for athletics. In this talk Professor Baker will show how essential to any all-round club are its athletics-in this instance, athletics for boys. It is becoming more and more evident, these days, that one of the greatest factors in promoting the health and well-being of the younger generation is an adequate supply of playing-fields for outdoor sports.

: The Foundations of Music: Mozart String Quartets

Played by The International String Quartet
Mozart wrote his first String Quartet in 1770, at the age of fourteen. He and his father were in the midst of a triumphantly successful tour in Italy, and the lad had already appeared in many countries of Europe as a child prodigy pianist and composer. He had played in most of the big towns in Germany and Austria, in Paris, here in London, in Holland, and in Switzerland, and everywhere the public astonishment at the feats of the youngster and his not much older sister found vent in all manner of enthusiastic tributes. Here in London they had not only given concerts at which many of the pieces were the young Mozart's own, but had advertised in the Press that the public might come and hear the two prodigies in their own rooms 'every day from 12 to 3, admittance two-and-sixpence each person.' Their success in Italy was of the same order; it had already grown to be such a matter of course that the father, writing home, said, 'It is the same here as everywhere, so there is no need to describe it.'
The Quartets of the next group date from 1772 or 1773, and the volume of music which the young man was pouring out may be gauged by the numbers allotted to them in the complete edition of his works. The first Quartet was his eightieth piece, and the thirteenth is number 173, though produced only two or three years later.

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.
