THERE is a dearth of fourteenth century
MSS., and the few that are available are in no way an advance upon the thirteenth century. The one included, mentioned in Chaucer's Miller's Tale as part of the Oxford Scholar's repertory, is one of the earliest examples of faulxbourdon (Shakespeare knew all about it and spelt it fauburden). This was a form of composition consisting more or less of a chain of first inversions, and considered by the majority of mediseval and modem authorities to bo of English origin. This example shows the new development in all passages approaching a close.
The Song of Agincourt. Our first national song.
1415. Amid the jubilant pagoantryof King Henry 's triumphant return from Agincourt, we are told that ' boys with pleasing voices were placed in artificial turrets, singing verses in his praise.' The King, however, decreed that ' no ditties should be made and sung by minstrels or others of his glorious victory, for that he would whollio have the praise and thanks altogether given to Cod.' Nevertheless, many celebration songs continued to appear, among which this was the most famous. The opening dedication in Latin is so far a compromise with the King's injunction that the praise is first (not ' whollie ') rendered to God.

THE CATTERALL STRING QUARTET:
ARTHUR CATTERALL (Violin) ; LAURENCE TURNER (Violin) ; JOHN FRY (Viola) ; HERBERT WITHERS
( Violoncello)
THE first piece of Dvorak's Chamber Music to make its way beyond the frontiers of his native Bohemia was the sextet for strings. Op. 48, introduced to the rest of Europe by Joachim and his colleagues. Jean Becker , leader of the Florentine Quartet, lost no time in asking the composer for more, begging that it might be as truly Slav in character as the sextet: this quartet was Dvorak's compliance with that request. All through, it'is the homcloving Bohemian Dvorak who is singing to us with all the direct simplicity, the mirth and laughter which were his in those happy years
,of early middle age : its prevailing mood is a frank zest in the beauty and the fun of life.

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.
