: KYLA GREENBAUM

(piano)
Prokofiev, who was himself a brilliant pianist, wrote a great deal of piano music, including eight sonatas. No. 2 dates from 1912, when he was twenty-one and still a student at the St. Petersburg Conservatoire. Its four movements exhibit the ' Puckishness ' of Prokofiev's musical personality, though a vein of tender lyricism is also revealed, more particularly in the third, the slow movement. The lively finale, which opens like a tarantella, contains a reminiscence of the expressive second subject of the first movement. Harold Rutland

: MORE TALES FROM THE PACIFIC ISLANDS

A new series of four talks by Sir Arthur Grimble
1-Arrests on Arorae
The speaker describes how as the youngest officer in the Gilbert Islands he was called upon t6 solve a problem of great delicacy. As a result of ill-judged and high-handed action a white official had been mobbed by a group of Gilbertese. The rule of law must be upheld but the action of the official could hardly be justified. What punishment was to be exacted and how could honour be satisfied and justice done?

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.
