: THE THURSDAY CONCERT

Max Rostal (violin)
Dennis Brain (horn)
Colin Horsley (piano)
Lennox Berkeley wrote his Horn Trio in 1953, in response to a commission from Colin Horsley. The work was first performed at a concert in London in March of the following year. The first movement, marked Allegro, is cast in sonata form; the opening motive on the horn consists of a series of rising fourths. A Lento movement follows, elegiac in mood, with a more flowing middle section. For finale there are ten variations on a theme (Moderato) in which the fall of a seventh is a prominent feature.

: SOME HORRORS OF CHILDHOOD

Being intimations by various speakers of inglorious clouds they trailed in their infancy and adolescence
3-Precociousness by Cmdr. Sir Stephen King-Hall
Sir Stephen was encouraged by his parents, he says, to use his brains and take nothing for granted. This was all very well in the family circle: his troubles began when he went to Osborne in 1906, and when he met adults from outside the family circle who believed that ' children should be seen and not heard.'

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
