: DVORAK

Sonata for violin and piano in F
(Op. 57) in three movements played by Margot Macgibbon (violin)
Frederic Jackson (piano)
Dvorak wrote numerous chamber works, among which, however, there are only two for violin and piano: the first a Sonata in F, Op. 57, the second a Sonatina, the violin part of which is also arranged for cello. The F major Sonata is simple, delicate music, very intimate in style, and the slow movement shows the influence of Brahms.

' Bugles of England ' by Major J. T. Gorman
A programme with the BBC Military
Band
Conductor, P. S. G. O'Donnell
Narrator, Moultrie R. Kelsall
Here is the sixth programme in one of the best series Major J. T. Gorman and the BBC Military Band have ever put over, and tonight's subject, ' Bugles of England ', should be as stirring as any in its popular appeal. As a musical instrument the bugle is unique. To its calls the soldier responds daily, even hourly, throughout his military career. It wakes him, summons him to parades and meals, rings down his day, and even his life. Who-soldier or civilian — remains unmoved on hearing the Last Post ?
Let Scots not grow angry at the title 'Bugles of England The bugle-calls to be heard will be those of English regiments, and it is of the bugles of English regiments that Moultrie R. Kelsall , himself a Scot, will speak.

: BEETHOVEN

Quartet in C, Op. 59, No. 3 played by The Griller String Quartet-Sidney Griller (violin), Jack O'Brien (violin), Philip Burton (viola), Colin Hampton
(cello)
Count Alexander Rasumovsky took a great interest in Beethoven's early string quartets and as a result Beethoven dedicated to him the three Op. 59 Quartets. Rasumovsky himself was an exceedingly fine amateur violinist and a generous patron of the arts. He formed his own string quartet, which was led by the famous violinist Schuppanzigh and in which Rasumovsky played second violin.

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.
