; Nick Tchaikoff (Clarinet)
Ernest Lush (Pianoforte)
Sonata in E flat, Op. 120, No. 2 Brahms
1. Allegro amabile ; 2. Allegro appassionato ; 3. Andante con mqto,
Allegro Brahms ' last group of chamber works, in which the clarinet plays a leading part, was due to the composer's great admiration for the beautiful playing of Miihlfeld, the principal clarinettist of the famous Meiningen Orchestra, of which von Billow was conductor; The two sonatas, in F minor and E flat, for clarinet and piano (also arranged by the composer for viola and piano) show Brahms' genius in its full glory. Speaking of the first movement of the E flat sonata, Professor Tovey has well said that ' players who cannot make of this movement one of the most
-mellow products of all chamber music should leave Brahms alone.' The second movement is a dramatic and expressive scherzo, and the third movement, the finale, a fine set of variations on a theme in slow time.

Mr. BASIL DE SELINCOURT

: Some Makers of the Modern Spirit

Mr. A. L. Rowse: 'Karl Marx '
This year marks the fiftieth anniversary of the death of Karl Marx , the great Socialist thinker. Marx was born in 1818 and, with his friend and collaborator, Friedrich Engels, published in 1848 his 'Communist Manifesto,' in which his essential ideas are embodied. The first volume of his most famous work, 'Das Kapital,' appeared in 1867. From his work sprung the social Democratic Parties of most European countries, and the present regime in Russia is the direct result of the application by Lenin of the teaching of Marx. His importance as a maker of the modern spirit will be estimated by Mr. A.L. Rowse, a Fellow of All Souls, and author of 'Politics and the Younger Generation.'

: B.B.C. CHAMBER CONCERT�VIII

(To be given before an audience in the Concert
Hall, Broadcasting House)
THE AMAR STRING QUARTET :
Licco Amar (Violin) ; Walther Caspar (Violin) ; Erich Kraak (Viola) ; Maurits Frank (Violoncello)
(The Quartet in E flat for Strings, Op. 127
(Beethoven), will be included in the portion of the programme which will not be broadcast.)
Paul Hindemith , the celebrated composer and viola virtuoso, and his brother, Rudolf, were originally associated with the Amar String Quartet, but now their places are occupied by Erich Kraak (viola) and Maurits Frank (violoncello). The leader, Lieco Amar , holds an important position at the Frankfurt Broadcasting Station. Despite the fact that the Amar String Quartet have made a speciality of modern music, it is characteristic of their catholicity of outlook that they claim a repertoire which covers ' the whole of quartet-literature.' This evening we have these Amar players in a classical programme. opening with the lovely C minor Quartet of Brahms, which is dealt with in an article on page 728, and concluding with Beethoven's Quartet in E flat, Op. 127, which, however, will not be broadcast. The second item, Mozart's Quartet in F major, is a particularly delightful specimen of the composer's string quartet style, which is characterised by perfection of workmanship and richness of melodic and rhythmic invention.
(Tickets may be obtained from [address removed], and the usual agents. Prices : 12s., 9s., 6s., 48., 2s. 6d. (including Entertainments Tax).

The Rt. Hon. Sir EDWARD HILTON YOUNG, G.B.E., D.S.O., D.S.C., M.P., Minister of Health :
' A Summing Up '
The last talk in a series that has aroused deep interest all over the country. Mr. Howard Marshall's eye-witness accounts brought home to the national conscience the widespread tragedy and misery caused by house shortage. Side by side with his revelations listeners have heard what local authorities and private enterprise have done and propose to do ; the views of the building trade, and the proposals of Sir Raymond Unwin for a National Housing Board. Tonight, the Minister of Health, who is responsible to Parliament for the management of the problem, explains the Government's policy in his summing up.

Elsie and Doris Waters
George Baker
Wynne Ajello
Leslie French
The Revue Chorus
The B.B.C. Theatre Orchestra
Conducted by Stanford Robinson lteaders of The Itattio Times who know
Ashley Sterne 's peculiai brand of humour will have realised that he is the person who ought to write dialogue for Elsie and Doris Waters to exploit in their inimitable style. In tonight's score the celebrated sisters will figure as ' Gert ' and ' Daisy,' conversing freely and snappily over the garden wall. Their backchat forms the backbone of the revue. In addition, there is a vein of light music (also written by the versatile Ashley Sterne , his lyric-writer being A. A. Thomson , who has also collaborated in the book as a whole), and the names of such popular broadcasters as George Baker , Wynne Ajello , and Leslie French, which appear in the cast, are an added guarantee that it is going to be a good show.

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.
