: Chamber Music

SPENCER THOMAS (tenor)
THE GRINKE TRIO:
Frederick Grinke (violin)
Florence Hooton (violoncello) Dorothy Manley (pianoforte)
Most of the chamber music of Schumann's later period shows unmistakable traces of the weariness due to successive attacks of mental depression and bodily illness. But the Trio in D minor is far less affected by this weakness, and, though a restless spirit can easily be heard in it, the music has its moments of self-confident energy too. 5.45 SPENCER THOMAS 6.0 TRIO6.12 SPENCER THOMAS6.20 TRIO
Phantasy, a form of the old English word ' fancie', ', was chosen by the Musicians' Company to earmark the kind of one-movement chamber-music piece for which W. W. Cobbett instituted prize competitions in 1905. His intention was to give composers free play with their imagination; as he put it himself, ' to write what they liked in any shape '.
Ireland's Trio, one of the works that gained an award under the scheme. presents no difficulty at all to the listener. From beginning to end it is frankly melodious.

: Imaginary Biography: Captain Robert Jenkins

by MICHAEL OAKSHOTT read by D. H. BEVES
The war between England and Spain in 1739 is usually referred to as the 'War of Jenkins' Ear'. That organ was by no means the sole cause of the war, but the incident, magnified by the victim's eloquence and the propaganda of the Tory Opposition, did much to force Walpole's unwilling hand and defeat his peace policy. Captain Robert Jenkins, whose life story will be told tonight, was on his way to Jamaica in 1731 when his ship, the Rebecca, was boarded by Spanish coastguards, one of whom cut off the Captain's ear. The trophy did not remain in foreign hands, however. Jenkins retrieved it and it is said that in 1738, when he was at last called to tell his story be'fore Parliament, he produced the sad relic from his pocket in corroboration.

Wesley's Chapel-the Chapel where both John and Charles preached and where John Wesley is buried-stands in a neighbourhood sacred not only to Dissenters but to all who love the English language. Opposite the Chapel is the Bunhill (originally Bonehill) Fields cemetery, ' the Campo Santo of the Dissenters', containing the tombs of Bunyan, several of the Cromwells, Isaac Watts , Defoe, Home Tooke, and William Blake. Nearby in Bunhill Row, in a house long since destroyed, Milton finished ' Paradise Lost'.

: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

An appeal on behalf of THE GUIDE DOGS
FOR THE BLIND ASSOCIATION by LESLIE HENSON with the help of a blind man and his guide dog
By means of a trained guide dog a blind person can be given many of the advantages of sight, enabled to find his way in safety through crowded city streets and freed from his sense of complete helplessness.
The systematic training of guide dogs for the blind was begun in Germany during the War; every blinded German soldier capable of being helped by a dog was given one by the government. Since the War, training centres have been established in Switzerland, Italy, France, and the U.S.A. The English centre at Wallasey was established in 1930. In three months the Wallasey centre can train a dog of suitable breed to a very remarkable degree of efficiency. The blind person goes to Wallasey, is allotted a dog, and is then trained for three weeks with it.

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.
