: Argus: 'The Cinema'

We tell you frankly we don't know who the new film critic is. Only three People in the will pro-do know. Perhaps his voice and views vido a clue. Whoever he is, he has a difficult job. One section of listeners wants news and views on the latest general releases; another wants to hear about the London 'first-runs': yet the London of British, another wants the experimental work
American and Continental producers discussed and explained. 'Argus' has his own views: listen tally with yours. to him tonight and see if they tally with yours.

This is not, of course, the first time that the C minor Syrrphony has been included in a 'Beethoven Night.' As a matter of fact, it was first introduced to the Viennese public in just such circumstances. The performance took place at the Theater an der Wien, on December 22, 1808, and the programme consisted entirely of Beethoven's works. It was a long programme, the Fifth and Sixth Symphonies, two Pianoforte Trios, the Pianoforte Concerto in G, extracts from the Mass, Ah ! Perfido,' an extempore Fantasia with Pianoforte, and the Choral Fantasia in which latter work, bv the way, there was a breakdown.
The whole performance is recorded as being atrocious. The weather was intensely cold and the theatre was unwarmed, the music was considered difficult to understand in those days and the programme was, of course, abominably long.
In these circumstances the symphony scarcely had a chance, and the occasion must be written down as one more example of a masterpiece exposed to utter failure at its first performance.
Tickets can be obtained from [address removed], and usual Agents. Prices (including Entertainments

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.
