Quintet in A for pianoforte and strings
I. Allegro ma non tanto ; 2. Dumka : Andante con moto; 3- Scherzo (Furiant) : Molto vivace ; 4. Finale : Allegro Dvorak's Piano Quintet was written in 1887. It is one of the finest of his chamber works : ' an absolute revelation ', says Ottokar Sourek, of the personality of Dvorak, a man apparently locked within himself, moving only in the sphere of divine beauty, now plunged in gloomy meditation, his vision lost in eternity, now smiling brightly, bubbling over with happiness and breaking forth in outbursts of the frankest joy. Such a spirit was Dvorak, and thus he appears in this quintet-one of the freshest and most characteristic creations of his genius.'

: Talk for Sixth Forms ' Let's go to a Movie' ALISTAIR COOKE

Sixth-form boys and girls can surely do no better than go to a movie with Alistair Cooke, who has made it a great part of his life's business to go to movies both in America and England, and to broadcast brilliantly about them. In America he met and worked with Charlie Chaplin himself, and perhaps he may tell a story of him in his talk this afternoon. If listeners want to know more about Alistair Cooke , he is to be featured next week in ' People you Hear.'

: Variety SYDNEY HOWARD

in 'Household Hints'-z
Though Sydney Howard once broadcast in ' In Town Tonight ', he gave his first solo broadcast on May 26 this year, soon after his return from South Africa. It is good news that this most individual of comedians is to come to the microphone again tonight. Sydney Howard is not the first Yorkshireman to excel in the art of laughter-making, nor is he the first great comedian to have trained in the nursery of a concert party. He made his first professional appearance in one at Cosy Corner at St. Annes-on-Sea in 1912 and his first appearance in London at the Hippodrome seven years later in Box o' Tricks. From that day to this he has appeared in a string of parts, each vying with the other in funniness, his characteristic make-up, grotesque attitudes, and. still more grotesque gestures, making him inimitable.

: A Recital for Two Pianofortes ETHEL BARTLETT and RAE ROBERTSON

Ethel Bartlett and Rae Robertson were fellow students at the Royal Academy of Music, and their first efforts in playing music for two pianos which date from that time were not taken seriously. Indeed, they had been married for some years before they decided to give a concert of two-piano music. Even then, successful as the-concert was, they did not immediately realise that there was not only a potential and genuine appreciation for such performances, but also a considerable existing repertory of music written for a two-piano combination, without counting examples later to be written expressly for them by modern composers. Since then they have together toured England, Holland, France, Poland, Germany, Belgium, and America, and their reputation is such that the mere mention of two-piano music is inevitably associated in the mind with these Uvo fine artists.

: 'Tales of Hoffmann' Act III of Offenbach's Opera

from the Royal Opera House,
Covent Garden
See the article by Scott Goddard on page 12
Scene : In Venice-At Crespel's house
Cast
Conductor, Sir THOMAS BEECHAM , Bt.
Chorus Master, ROBERT AINSWORTH
It is fitting that the Covent Garden season should close light-heartedly with Offenbach's sparkling music. Tales of Hoffmann thus provides a gay finale to the year's ' Covent Garden symphony ' with its great Wagnerian first movement, its melodious cantabile movement of Verdi and Puccini, and its impudent Rosenkavalier scherzo.
The past season has been perhaps the most brilliant of any since the War, and on no less than seventeen evenings listeners all over the country have been able to ' overhear ' separate acts and in one case, on the opening night, a whole opera.

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.
