BRAHMS' SONATAS FOR VIOLIN AND PIANOFORTE
Played by ADILA FACHIRI and KATHLEEN LONG
Sonata in D Minor, Op. 108
Dedicated by Brahms to his friend, Hans von Bulow, the D minor Sonata is the favourite of the three with a great many players and listeners. It begins at once with a big, broad tune on the violin, the pianoforte accompanying with his right hand half a beat after the left. A little transition passage is made up from the first big tune, and then the pianoforte plays a second subject, another noble melody, and after that the course of the movement is perfectly clear. Towards the end there is a fine section built up on a pedal bass. The slow movement, quite short, is among the most beautiful of all Brahms' big conceptions. The tune itself has all the simple dignity of a fine old song. The third movement has been called fairy-like, and is indeed delicate and nimble, with movements of vigour and crisp energy. It is practically in the scherzo and trio form, a first section with a contrasting middle part, after which the first returns. The last movement is bold and strong, beginning with a theme of quick, restless energy, on which a calmer mood breaks in more than once.

Mr. C. H. Middleton: Peas and Beans
Earlier this spring Mr. Giles in his talks on vegetables deplored the conservative habits of English growers who concentrated on one big annual sowing, and urged the need for vegetables to be sown in series... Tonight Mr. Middleton in his talk on peas and beans gives practical advice on how this can be done with two very popular vegetables.

Mr. CHARLES ELTON (Director of the Bureau of Animal Population, University of Oxford): 'Nature Sanctuaries'
Every year the need for nature sanctuaries becomes more pressing and their function more important. Rare mammals, whether animals, birds, or insects, have a receding chance of survival as time goes on, and there is real danger that other species will follow the buzzard, the eagle, and the red squirrel into oblivion. Tonight Mr. Elton will describe the nature sanctuaries we possess and the way in which they are run.

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.
