: BACH AND MOZART

Watson Forbes (viola)
Myers Foggin (piano)
Bernard Walton (clarinet)
The clarinet was a novelty in Mozart's time and he was quick to exploit its possibilities. In few of his works has the instrument been used to such happy effect as in this curious combination with the viola.
It was written in the summer of 1786, probably for Stadler, the leading clarinettist of the time (for whom the Clarinet Quintet was written), and for Mozart's friends. Franziska and Gottfried von Jacquin, at whose house it was first performed. Mozart himself played the viola at this performance. It is in three movements and is generally accepted as one of the most perfect examples of chamber music.

God Save the King Solo piano, Louis Kentner
Albert Wolff , the distinguished French conductor, was born in Paris in 1884 and studied at the Paris Conservatoire. He is known in England chiefly by his gramophone recordings, but in America he has distinguished himself at the Metropolitan Opera House, New York.
' Nuages ' and ' Fetes ' are the first two of three pieces of exquisite tone painting which Debussy called collectivelv Three Nocturnes. 'The title Nocturne ', he said, ' is to be interpreted here in a general and more particularly in a decorative sense. Therefore it is not meant to designate the usual form of Nocturne but rather all the various impressions and the special effects of light that the word suggests.'

: The Home Front in France 1-1 PARIS GOES TO WAR I

A picture of how, in spite of mobilisation, air-raid precautions, and other lets and hindrances, life continues in the capital of France with Laidman Browne and Fred O'Donovan as the travellers from
England
Written and produced by Robert Kemp
So far as broadcasting is concerned, the British Home Front has been pretty well covered. Now comes another side of the picture. How are our Allies, the French, coping with" the war in terms of the farm, the fireside, and life in general away from shell and shot ?
Robert Kemp has just returned from France where he has been collecting material for the three programmes on the French Home I'ront of which tonight's is the first. In this broadcast he will present a picture of wartime Paris, showing how for one thing the life of the French capital has been robbed of practically all men below the age of fifty, and how, for another, Paris looks after its population during air raids.
Kemp introduces these new feature programmes in an article on page 7.

: ' NORTH OF THE TWEED '

A new monthly programme reporting sayings and doings in Scotland in wartime, by George Blake
George Blake , novelist and radio commentator, makes a welcome return to the microphone in this, the first of a new series in which, with the assistance of other Scots men and women, he will describe the most important and interesting things that have been happening lately ' North of the Tweed '.
With his wry humour and warm
Scottish voice, Blake has been judged by many to be the ideal radio com- mentator, and certainly he excelled in those commentaries where he dealt with his beloved Clydesidemost particularly will be remembered his descriptions of the launchings of the Queen Mary and Queen Elizabeth, and of the maiden voyage of the former.

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.
