: DVORAK

Quartet for piano and strings, Op. 23 played by the Elsie Owen Piano
Quartet — Elsie Owen (violin),
Dorothy Lee (viola), Lily Phillips
(cello), Alan Richardson (piano)
This is the first of Dvorak's two piano quartets and is among the earliest of his chamber works ; the other is the better-known one in E flat, composed many years later. It is in three movements, the second being a Theme and Variations, and the last is an Allegretto scherzando which is unusual for a finale.

A weekly programme introducing famous detectives of fact and fiction

A five-minute thriller
3—' A Case for Sexton Blake '
Episode 3—' Menace at the Mill ' written for broadcasting by Francis Durbridge from a story by Edward
Holmes
Cast
Production by Bill MacLurg
The popularity of this programme is surely due to its ringing the changes between old and new, between fact and fiction. What could crime fans wish for more than a broadcast which gives them a five-minute thriller, a case from the Sexton Blake saga, and yet another adventure by Barton of the Yard ?
This radio detective, created by ex - Divisional Detective - Inspector Jack Henry in What Price Crime? , is fast becoming as famous as Sexton Blake himself. And no wonder. For in real life Jack Henry solved every murder mystery that was handed out to him, and the episodes are based on incidents in his life.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
