5 — ' A Very Strange Discovery '
Production by Lorraine Davies
Professor Mallory and his friends have now descended into the jungles of the Huallaga Valley to investigate the sacred lake of Cancha-Ccori. According to an old legend sacrifices and many gold offerings were thrown into the lake during the reign of the ancient Incas, and the Professor is planning to conduct a diving operation to search the bottom of the lake for relics. Dr. Cesar Gamarra, a mysterious Peruvian biologist who owns a hacienda not far from the lake, is strangely dismayed when he hears of their project and tries to prevent them from carrying it out.

: THE FRIDAY RECITAL

William Pleeth (cello) Margaret Good (piano)
Of Beethoven's five sonatas for cello and piano, the first two, comprising his Op. 5, were composed during his visit to Berlin in 1796, and dedicated to King Frederick William II of Prussia, who was himself an accomplished cellist. Beethoven played the two sonatas at the Prussian court with Duport, the celebrated French cellist, and received from the King a box of louis d'or, which Beethoven afterwards proudly described as ' no ordinary box, but one of the kind usually presented to ambassadors.' Each sonata consists of two movements, the first of which has a slow introduction. The opening of No. i in F is directed to be played Adagio sostenuto, and this leads to an Allegro movement; a Rondo follows, marked Allegro vivace.

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.
