: Chamber Music THE BUSCH STRING QUARTET :

Adolf Busch (violin) ; Gosta Andreasson (violin); Karl Doktor (viola);
Hermann Busch (violoncello) e molto cantabile ; 4. Presto; 5. Adagio ; 6. Allegro
The String Quartet, Op. 131, in C sharp minor is perhaps the most original in form and imaginative in treatment of the last group of five string quartets, and from a structural point of view it is unique in the whole range of classical and romantic chamber music. It is divided into six movements which are intended to be played without a break. The first, adagio, is a deeply expressive Fugue, the introduction to which ' reveals ', said Wagner, ' the most melancholy sentiment ever expressed in music'. The second is an airy movement in suite form ; the third an andante theme with seven variations and an extended coda ; the fourth, presto, is a brilliant scherzo in five sections ; the fifth is a very poetical adagio ; and the sixth is a triumphant allegro finale in full sonata or first movement form.

: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

An appeal on behalf of BEXHILL HOSPITAL by Earl DE LA WARR
Tonight the President of the Bexhill Hospital, which serves not only Bexhill but large areas of Sussex, is to appeal for the raising of the balance of £900 still outstanding on a modern X-ray equipment, and for the inauguration of a fund for the provision of an out-patients' department that is badly needed. As it is, demands have constantly to be made for accommodation that can ill be spared in the wards for cases that might have received preventive treatment and never have had to be admitted at all.
Visitors have again and again been grateful for treatment at this hospital which, in a town with a floating population, may be called on to save the life of anybody whose home may be in any part of England. In Bexhill itself, with only 23,000 inhabitants, the sum of £ 40,000 has already been collected for the main building alone. Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to [address removed]

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.
