Higher Farming for Higher Profits by Sir James A. Scott Watson C.B.E., LL.D ,
.
Chief Scientific and Agricultural Adviser, Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries
There are real difficulties in the way of a further expansion of home food production. In some cases the chief obstacle is a shortage of workers or of suitable housing. In others it may be lack of working capital. Getting the extra return per acre may not be easy, but it can be profitable.

: BEETHOVEN

Sonata in C sharp minor, Op. 27 No. 2 (Moonlight)
Bagatelles, Op. 126:
No. 1 in G; No. 2 in G minor
No. 3 in E Hart
Thirty-two Variations in C minor played by Julius Kaitchen (piano)
A series of programmes which will include Beethoven's thinty-two piano sonaitas
The title of ' Moonlight' was not given to the Sonata in C sharp minor by Beethoven; he described it, together with its fellow, (Op. 27 No. 1, as 'Sonata quasi fantasia,' thereby indicating its divergence from the normal conventions of sonata form. The divergence is to be found entirely in the improvisatory, almost impressionistic character of the first movement, which earned the sonata its romantic name.
The brilliant variations in C minor are based on the Chaconne principle, being elaborations of the basic harmonies of the theme. The Bagatelles (from the last set, written shortly after the Ninth Symphony) are perhaps best described as musical aphorisms Deryck Cooke

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.
