The Bronkhurst Trio:
John Fry (violin) ; Edward Robinson (violoncello) ; Henry Bronkhurst
(pianoforte)
Tchaikovsky's Piano Trio was partly inspired by the death of his great friend Nicholas Rubinstein (the brother of the more famous Anton). It is dedicated ' to the memory of a great artist ', and was first performed privately in March, 1882.
The Trio has unusual features. In writing the piano part, Tchaikovsky wished to provide something that would have been worthy of so fine a pianist-for Nicholas was almost as great a virtuoso as his brother Anton -and yet at the same time keep a correct balance in the ensemble. Its form, too, is distinctive. It is divided into two parts: the first is in sonata form, while the second is a set of eleven variations on a beautiful theme that Tchaikovsky with Rubinstein heard at a peasants' gathering. The last Variation worked out on fully developed lines constitutes the finale of the work.

: FENCING

The Men's Foils Championship of Great Britain
A commentary during the final pool by C. L. de Beaumont from the Salle Bertrand
On May 9, 1936, fencing made its debut on the air with a broadcast impression of the Men's Sabre Championship of Great Britain. This was followed up on November 6 with an outside broadcast of the Ladies' International Fencing Championship (with foils). Now it is the turn of the men again. Listeners will hear, and be able to visualise, the crucial moment (it is hoped) in the finals of the Men's Foils Championship, for amateurs.

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.
