c Six Types of Tudor Prose
III, Philosophic Prose-Bacon ,' by Mr. T. S. ELIOT
THE Shakespeare-Bacon controversy apart, no one would deny the importance of the prose of Bacon's essays and philosophical works as a milestone in English literature. After the flowery meads of Sidney's. Arcadia, and other early Elizabethan romances, Bacon's exact and tersely adequate prose is like a firm highway.
Its only obvious ornaments are the many classical stories and comments brought in by way of illustration ; otherwise, its first aim is to give as exact and lucid an expression as possible to the hard thinking that underlies it; nevertheless, an innate majesty of rhythm underlies its austerity—a rhythm born of splendour of thought rather than of splendour of imagery. Bacon's importance in the development of English prose is Mr. Eliot's theme today.

MATHILDE VERNE (Pianoforte)
FERENZ HEGEDUS (Violin) and BARJANSKY (Violoncello)
OLGA KALLIWODA (Soprano)
MATHILDE VERNE has been a distinguished figure in the music of London as soloist, as chamber music player, and as teacher, for a good many years. The second of three brilliant sisters, she was a favourite pupil of Madame Schumann.
Ferencz Hegedus , a Hungarian on his father's side and Spanish on his mother's, made his first appearance in London before he was out of his teens. Though he has visited this country less often than some Continental artists, he enjoys the reputation of being in the very front rank of the violinists of today.
Barjansky, the bioloncellist, is a comparative new-comer to the London concert world, having made his first appearance here, with the Royal Philharmonic Society, so recently as January of this year. His brilliant success on that occasion must be fresh in the memory of music lovers.
THE two Trios which make up Opus 70, appeared fourteen years after the three of Opus 1. But they are separated from the early works by an advance in style far greater than that interval suggests. They are Beethoven at the very height of his powers, and before any of those sombre qualities of mystery, such as we find in the last String Quartets, for instance, had begun to appear. Published in the same year (1809) as the fifth and sixth symphonies-the year before Fidelio, they have all the bigness and splendid dignity of these great works.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
