: FRIDAY MIDDAY CONCERT

Under the direction of Johan Hock from Queen's College Chambers .
Lecture Hall, Birmingham
The MacNaghten String Quartet: Anne MacNaghten (first violin); Elsie Deprez
; Margaret Ludwig (viola) ; Olive Richards (violoncello)
Bela Bartok 's Third Quartet was composed in 1927, and is dedicated to the Musical Fund Society, Philadelphia. It is in two movements, which are played without interruption. The work is definitely atonal in character, but some use is made of the Hungarian folk element. The combination of sharply dissonant intervals is to be noted, as is also the linear technique of composition, and the detailed working out of melodic and rhythmic elements, which is characteristic of the composer.

2.5 Travel Talk
' Through the Northern Sudan '
E. G. SARSFIELD-HALL , C.M.G.
Today's talk on the Northern Sudan is to be given by a man who has served in the Anglo-Egyptian Sudan for twenty-seven years, and who has just come back to England after being Governor of its two most important provinces.
Today Mr. Sarsfield-Hall is to take listeners for a trip to the northern part of the country. They will see Port Sudan, and hear what the Fuzzy Wuzzies are, and why they are so called. Thence by train, which will take them up-country. Palm trees ; hills infested with hyenas ; sennar on the Blue Nile ; El Obeid , capital of the gum trade-these are some of the things they will see there.

DESMOND MACCARTHY
Last term a talk was given to schools about Tolstoy's great novel, ' War and Peace'. This afternoon Desmond MacCarthy will discuss other aspects of the great Russian writer's work.
No doubt he will also touch on the life of this remarkable man and the spiritual change that led him, after the writing of two such master-pieces as ' War and Peace' and 'Anna Karenina ', to forswear his art while still at the height of his powers and become the founder of a new sect of Christianity.

: THE BBC ORCHESTRA

(Section E)
Led by Laurance Turner
Conducted by Clarence Raybould
Aubrey Brain (horn)
Richard Strauss 's father, Franz Strauss , was the first horn player in the Munich Opera Orchestra, so that it was natural the son should know a deal about the instrument. The Horn Concerto is an early work written in his student days, when he was about seventeen. He composed a symphony at about the same time, which, though it was never published, has been several times performed, notably in England, in 1896. Neither work quite reveals or quite conceals the later Strauss of 'Till Eulenspiegel' and ' Ein Heldenleben

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.
