: CELLO SOLOS

played by May Mukle
May Mukle has been described as a pioneer among women cellists. Certainly she was one of the first British cellists to attain the front rank of the virtuosi. She studied at the Royal Academy of Music and made her public debut at the age of nine. She is well known as a broadcaster both as soloist and in her piano quartet combination, the English Ensemble.

: DVORAK.

Quartet in A flat, Op. 105 played by the Stratton String Quartet-George Stratton (violin) ; Walter Price (violin) ; Watson Forbes
(viola) ; John Moore (cello)
Dvorak wrote eight string quartets of which the A flat, Op. 105, is the last. In fact, it is the last of all his chamber works. It was corn-posed in 1895-nine years before Dvorak's death. It is a particularly fine and representative work, and outstanding among the four movements is the very lively Scherzo, the first and last sections of which have something of the character of the Czech national dance-the Furiant.

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.

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.
