The Philharmonic String Quartet:
Charles Bye (violin) ; James Soutter (violin) ; Horace Ayckboum (viola) ;
Frederick Alexander (violoncello) Debussy never wrote any symphonies, overtures, concertos, or even sonatas (in the classical sense of the term). The nearest he approached to the conventional sonata design was in the String Quartet in G minor, which was completed and first per- formed in 1893, when he was in his thirty-second year. It is recorded that Debussy once declared that in this quartet he had said all he had to say in that form.
Debussy was essentially a miniaturist, and one of the most attractive features of his music is its purity and delicacy of texture. His principal concern was the suggesting of vague and subtle emotional moods and the painting of half-lights and exquisite shades of colour. To this end Debussy resorted to the use of a highly original system of harmony based on the two whole tone scales which provide that pungent flavour, or rather ' atmosphere ', so characteristic of his music from the String Quartet onwards.

Conductor,
Lieut. F. Vivian Dunn ,
Director of Music, Royal Marines (Saxophone soloist,
L/Cpl. R. F. LUCAS) Haydn Wood's tone poem ' Mannin
Veen ' is based on Manx folk songs, four of which are very prominent. The first ' The Good Old Way ', is an old and typical air, written mostly in the Dorian mode. The second tune which introduces the lively section of the work is a reel, 'The Manx Fiddler '. Chaloner, writing in the middle of the seventeenth century, remarked that the Manx people were ' much addicted to the music of the Violyne, so that there is scarce a family in the Island but more or less can play upon it, but, as they are ill composers, so are they bad players '. The third tune ' Sweet Water in the Common ', relates to the old practice of summoning a jury of twenty-four men from each of the parishes in the district where the dispute took place, to decide questions connected with water courses, boundaries, etc. The last tune is a fine old hymn, ' The Harvest of the Sea ', sung by the fishermen as a song of thanksgiving after their safe return from the fishing grounds.

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.
