: SCHUMANN

Sonata in G minor, Op. 22 (in four movements)
Vogel als Prophet (from Waldscenen) Romance in F sharp played by Bertha Hagart (piano)
Schumann's Piano Sonata No. 2 in G minor was finished in 1838 after several years of spasmodic work on it. From a constructional point of view, it is the most attractive of Schumann's three piano sonatas, although the first movement, which opens as ' fast as possible ', becoming ' faster ' and finally ' faster still ', follows the outline rather than the details of classical procedure. The music as a whole is concentrated, epigrammatic, and full of poetic meaning, while the actual writing is extremely effective.

Tunes I have promised
Aircraftman Reginald Dixon began his career as church organist at the Birley Carr parish church, near Sheffield, went to Chesterfield as a pianist, and on to Sheffield where he played first the piano, then the straight organ. He was solo organist for the first time in the Isle of Man. But it was at the Tower Ballroom, Blackpool, that he made his name, and almost everyone must have heard him play his signature tune ' I do like to be beside the seaside '. Since joining the R.A.F. his place at the Tower has been taken by Ena Baga.

: A COUNTRY CALENDAR'

These programmes bring before you, month by month, the changing facets of the rural scene. Country men and women will be brought to the microphone to speak about their lives and work, and although representative of the life of country folk, the series should hold much of interest to townspeople too.

: DON MARINO BARRETO

and his Cuban Rhumba Music
As his name suggests, and as the nature of his band confirms, Don Marino Barreto is a Cuban. Both he and his brother (who has what is probably the most famous rhumba band in Paris) have done a great deal towards popularising Cuban music in Europe.
For some years Don Marino was a member of his brother's band in Paris. He then came to this country to found his own, which is probably the only ' hot ' rhumba band in the world. Barreto got his chance in this country some five years ago when doing a turn in the Cochran revue, Follow the Sun. He attracted the attention of Leon Cassel Gerard , the Productions Manager of the show. Gerard established Barreto at the Embassy in London, where his band has been a great success. Gerard devises Barreto's broadcasts, and writes the scripts which always contain some kind of descriptive commentary by way of aid to general understanding of Cuban music.

Trio in D, Op. 70, No. 1 (The
Ghost) played by the Grinke Trio :
Frederick Grinke (violin)
Florence Hooton (cello)
Kendall Taylor (piano)
Published in 1809, the same year as .the Fifth and Sixth Symphonies, Beethoven's Piano Trio in D major, Op. 70, No. 1 is called the ' Ghost' Trio because of its eerie slow movement. Sketches for this movement are to be found in one of Beethoven's sketch books immediately after a rough sketch of a witches' chorus intended for an uncompleted opera based on Shakespeare's Macbeth. The libretto, however, was abandoned ' because it bade fair to be too gloomy

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.
