1. Lento con energia-Vivace. 2. Allegro di molto. 3. Semplice. 4. Con moto
Schumann's Violin Sonata in D minor, Op. 121, is the second of two sonatas composed at Dusseldorf in 1851. The public performance took place at Leipzig in 1854. In a letter to a friend Joachim wrote :
' To me it is one of the finest creations of modern times, in the wonderful unity of its feeling, and the significance of its themes. It is full of a noble passion-almost harsh and bitter in its expression-and the last movement might almost remind one of a seascape, with its glorious waves of sound '.

Why blame your Car?
By a Car Consultant
Today a woman motor-car consultant-one of the few women, if not the only woman, in the profession-is to talk about the care of cars and the carelessness of many owners. Why blame your car if you neglect to grease it, never have it overhauled, race the engine when it's cold ? A good car, uncared for, will soon become a bad one ; an old one, nursed, will go on endlessly.
This talk has a certain topicality as it comes in the middle of the annual Motor Show at Olympia, when many listeners will be starting ' from scratch ' with new cars.

Scene 3. Scutari. A room in an old Turkish barracks, 1854 (the first year of the Crimean War)

Reginald Berkeley 's play on the life of Florence Nightingale was first produced at the Arts Theatre on January 6, 1929, and went to the Garrick three weeks later. ' The Lady with a Lamp ' is to be played tonight by Diana Wyn yard, whom almost everyone will have seen in the film of Cavalcade.
She made her first appearance on the stage at the Globe Theatre in 1925, then toured the provinces in a repertory of over twenty parts. She did sterling work with the Liverpool Repertory Company, and has appeared in London in a number of West End plays, not least among them being Wild Decembers at the Apollo in 1933, in which she appeared as Charlotte Bronte, and which she subsequently ran under her own management. Listeners will remember her broadcast last year as Hermione in The Winter's Tale.
In a cast of so many distinguished actors and actresses, and well-known broadcasters, many listeners will pause at the name of Stella Patrick-Campbell , the charming and gifted daughter of Mrs. Patrick Campbell , one of the greatest actresses of modern times.
See the article on page 16
This play will be repeated in the Regional programme tomorrow at 7.30

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.
