Question Time: A Service of Information
RICHARD CLEMENTS
This information service is still going strong. Many hundreds of letters reach the B.B.C. each week from those who are needing help and advice on the many complicated regulations that affect their lives. These letters are sent to the National Council of Social Service, and each receives a personal reply. It is hoped that as many unemployed listeners as possible in England and Wales will make use of this information service. Letters should be addressed to the B.B.C., Portland Place, London, W.I, and envelopes marked in the left-hand corner with the tetter ' U '.

Today's interlude, the second this term, concerns the great Prophet Mohammed , the founder of Islam.
The first part takes place in the merchants' quarter at Mecca, and shows how the news of Mohammed's escape from Mecca to Medina came to one of his enemies-the year being A.D. 622, according to our calendar, or the year I, according to the Moslems or Mussulmans, the followers of the Prophet.
The second part of the interlude is set in the desert ten years later, and shows how the news of the Prophet's death in the Holy City of Medina reached some of his followers.

: The Artist and his Public—7

A Discussion between Eric NEWTON and ERNEST HOLLOWELL , Leader of a Manchester Listening Group
A half-way stage has now been reached in this series, which is really an exhaustive inquiry, not only into modern ' art, but into art in general. In six talks
Mr. Eric Newton , who is conducting the inquiry, has addressed the jury of listeners. He has tried to explain to the lay mind what the artist is getting at, what he sees and what he wants you to see. Mr. Newton has discussed ' Beauty ', and, in defence of the 'moderns ', reminded his listeners that the credo of Keats, ' Beauty is truth, truth beauty', can be applied to ugliness as well as to loveliness. He has discussed style, choice of medium, and craftsmanship.
And now this evening, before examining experts in later broadcasts, he is to put a layman in the box. And it should be absorbingly interesting to know what this layman—the leader of a listening group-makes of it all. Which school is he for ? The old or the new ? And is it a matter of his age ? Or is he dispassionate ? Is he puzzled ? What sort of questions will he ask Mr. Newton ? And what sort of questions will Mr. Newton ask him ?

THE SPENCER DYKE STRING
QUARTET:
Spencer Dyke (violin) ; Tate Gilder (violin) ; Bernard Shore (viola) ;
Cedric Sharpe (violoncello)
JOHN ARMSTRONG (tenor)
The key of C minor seems to have appealed to Brahms whenever he wanted to express tragic emotions. Outstanding works "of this character are : the Piano Quartet in C minor, the Piano Trio in C minor, the Symphony No. 1 in C minor, and the String Quartet in C minor.
While still adhering to the classical design of sonata form, Brahms's treatment is much fuller and freer, and, with the exception of the third movement, the thematic material is closely related throughout, since it is for the most part derived from the first theme of the first movement. This initial theme, like so many of Brahms's tunes, is based on the notes of the common chord (C minor). Surging upwards on the first violin, it immediately defines the tense and stormy mood of the whole movement.
The second movement is in the form of a deeply expressive ' Romance ', with a quiet middle section of unsurpassed poignancy and sonorous beauty. The music here is particularly striking for its richness of colouring and originality of rhythm. The third movement is a rather slow and flowing Scherzo, full of fancy and quaint simplicity, especially in the charming trio section. The mood of the first movement more or less dominates the Finale, the chief theme of which will be recognised as a peculiar amalgam of me initial theme of the first movement and that of the ' Romance '.

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

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.
