: HAS RUSSIA'S POLICY CHANGED ?

by Ruth Fischer and G. H. Bolsover
Two speakers analyse Russian political moves since Stalin's death and offer their own interpretation of them.
Ruth Fischer was a founder-member of the Austrian Communist Party and was expelled from the Party in 1926 for her opposition to Moscow. She personally knew Stalin and many other members of the Russian Government. She has lived in the United States since 1940 and has made a continued and detailed study of Communist method and policy. She is a Seminar Lecturer at Harvard and a writer on Russian affairs.
Dr Bolsover has studied Russian history and politics for twenty years. He was in Russia in 1935 and with the British Embassy in Moscow from 1941 to 1946.

: THE THURSDAY CONCERT

Amadeus String Orchestra:
Norbf'rt Brainin (violin) Siegmund Nissel (violin)
Peter Schidlof (viola) Martin Lovett (cello)
Benjamin Britten has composed two string quartets: No. 1, in D, dates from 1941; No. 2, in C, was written in 1945, in homage to Henry Purcell, and first performed on November 21 of that year at a concert given in London to commemorate the 250th anniversary of Purcell's death. Of the three movements of this Quartet, the first (Allegro calrno senza rigore) is dominated by the interval of a tenth, which is heard a' the outstt; the second (Vivace) is a fleet-footed Scherzo; the last (Sostcnuto) is a Chacony, a favourite form with Purcell himself.

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.
