BEETHOVEN'S STRING TRIOS
Played by THE ENGLISH ENSEMBLE
Trio No. I in E Flat;, Op. 3
1. Allegro con brio ; 2. Andante ; 3. Minuet; 4. Finale
T)EETHOVEN wrote in all five trios for strings
(violin, viola, and violoncello), one of which he called a serenade. These are all numbered amongst the earliest of his compositions. It is true he composed trios for other combinations of orchestral instruments, but those he wrote in maturer years included, for the most part, a pianoforte. The string trios, as do all the works of this period, belong to- what is known as his first imitative period. Ho had for a time when he first came to Vienna studied with Haydn, and it is not a matter of surprise that the influence of Haydn can be traced in these trios. Other influences were at work also, that of C. P. E. Bach in particular, whoso compositions Beethoven had studied with the deepest attention and respect.

: TRAVELLERS IN EUROPE-I

ADVANTAGE has been taken of the lull before the commencement of the autumn talks programme to devote a short series during September to a survey of event's in the main countries of Europe. Current affairs, mainly in their political and economic light, in Germany, Austria, Russia, Spain, and Italy, will be discussed by authoritative speakers, whose first qualification is that they have just returned from the country they describe. The talk on Russia will be divided. Mrs. Sidney Webb, who, with her husband, Lord Passfield, has after a very thorough'survey established the main points of Soviet economic advance to date will present them on September 22, supplemented by an expert from the Empire Marketing Board, who has just concluded a minute examination of Russian agriculture. The countries represented in the series are the storm centres where events are at the moment moving most quickly, and listeners may expect competent, interesting and intensely topical surveys.

: OTHER PEOPLE'S LIVES Sir JOHN HOPE SIMPSON. C.I.E. : ' Life in the Flooded Areas of China '

SIR JOHN HOPE SIMPSON went out to
China in October last year as Director-
General of the National Flood Relief Commission appointed by the Chinese National Government. Relief measures were carried out in face of immense difficulties, such as interference by bandits, and the Sino-Japanese clash at Shanghai. The Commission succeeded in repairing the dykes, the work of repair by native labour being paid for with wheat; for this purpose large consignments of wheat were obtained from America. The Commission were faced with 34,000 square miles of seriously flooded country ; 23 millions of people, many of them destitute, were directly affected. Bald figures give the measure of success achieved: 4,500 kilometres of dykes repaired in eight months ; 446,000 tons of wheat transported by 66 ocean ships and 244 river steamers ; 71 million dollars given by voluntary subscription. It is an epic story in the history of relief.

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
