String Quartet in G minor played by the Hirsch String Quartet:
Leonard Hirsch (violin) Patrick Hailing (violin) Stephen Shingles (viola) Francisco Gabarro (cello)
Debussy was thirty-one when, in 1893, he produced his only string quartet. Its harmonic originality and unusual atmosphere brought something quite new into chamber music. There is a ' motto ' theme, which dominates the first, second, and fourth movements, and is hinted at in the exquisite slow third movement. H.R.

: A WORKING FAITH

5—Summing Up' by Canon V. A.Demant Previous speakers in this series have approached the- relation between work and taith from different directions. Opening with an account of the biblical doctrine of work, and going on to an examination of the society in which men work and the preparation that can be given, the various problems of finding a faith to work by have been examined. Canon Demant looks back on the series and comments upon the way in which various speakers have helped to supply an answer to the question ' Is there a Christian teaching which can be applied in this generation? '

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.
