THE NANCY PHILLIPS STRING QUARTET Nancy Phillips (violin) ; Jean Le Fevre (violin) ; Eileen Grainger (viola) ;
Lilly Phillips (violoncello)
MAY LYMBURN (contralto)
IN THE SPRING OF 1842 Schumann made a study of the quartets of Mozart and Haydn, after which he proceeded to write the three quartets, Op. 41, which were his first venture into the field of chamber music. Writing to Hartel, the publisher, Schumann said that ' during the summer months
I worked with great zeal at three quartets for violin, etc. We played them several times at David's, and they seemed to please players and listeners alike, in particular Mendelssohn (to whom they are dedicated). But you may be sure that I have spared no pains to produce something really good ; indeed, I sometimes think, my best ! The No. I in A minor is a very beautiful work, rich in melodic invention, and full of rhythmic vitality. What the music may lack in constructive perfection it makes up for in fancy and charm.

: The Ceremony of the Keys

Carried out by the Chief Warder in conjunction with the 2nd Bn. Scots Guards

THE CEREMONY opens with the Chief Warder meeting his Escort at the Bloody Tower. The Chief Warder and Escort then proceed to the Visitors' Entrance gate on Tower Hill, the sentries en route presenting arms. The Visitors' Entrance gate is locked, and they then return through the Middle and Byward Tower, locking each in turn. On reaching the Bloody Tower, they are challenged, and then proceed to the Main Guard. The Main Guard salutes the Keys by presenting arms, and the Chief Warder, raising his hat, calls out ' God Preserve King George '. Ten o'clock sounds from the Tower clock, and the relay finishes with the sounding of the Last Post.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
