: TCHAIKOVSKY

String Quartet in D, Op. 11 played by the Virtuoso String Quartet-Marjorie Hayward (violin), Irene Richards (violin), John Yewe Dyer
(viola), Cedric Sharpe (cello) Tchaikovsky's String Quartet in D,
Op. 11, was written in February, 1871, and first performed on March 28 of that year at a concert given with the deliberate purpose of raising money for a holiday. It was necessary to arouse interest by a new work ; Tchaikovsky could not afford to engage an orchestra ; so despite his faint dislike of chamber music in general, he decided on a quartet.
Although produced in such unfavourable circumstances, the Quartet is not only beautifully written but has for its slow movement one of the most popular quartet pieces ever written: the famous andante cantabile, based on a beautiful Russian folk melody.

A story with a peace-time setting
Written and produced by Max Kester with Luanne Shaw , Max Kirby ,
Dons Nichols , John Rorke , Elsie Hay ,
Tommy Brandon , Jacques Brown
Alan Paul and Ivor Dennis at the pianos
This story concerns Mary March , the proprietress of a music shop in the small provincial town of Muddleton. Until the arrival of Martin Smith , traveller for the Melodious Music Company, it looks very much as though Marys shop will be visited by the bailiffs- The fun begins when Martin falls for
Mary and introduces distinctly unorthodox methods to save March s Music Stores from ending up in Carey Street.

: BEETHOVEN

Sonata for piano, Op. 2, No. 3, in C played by Edward Isaacs
The first three piano sonatas comprising Op. 2 were published by Artaria of Vienna in 1796 when Beethoven was twenty-six years of age Dedicated to Haydn, with whom Beethoven studied for a while, they show the influence of that master. Nevertheless, as will be noticed in the No. 3 in C, there are a number of distinguishing features which show Beethoven's genius in embryo.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
