: A SONATA RECITAL

Antonia Butler (violoncello)
Kathleen Markwell (pianoforte)
If the 'cello has been neglected with regard to concertos, at least it has been rather better served in the way of sonatas, particularly by the nineteenth-century composers.
Brahms's Sonata No. 2, in F, composed in 1887, is a magnificent piece of writing, terse and dramatic in expression and concentrated in thought, and the entire range of the 'cello is exploited with telling effect. The piano part is no less big in design and the music contains a fair number of expression marks that require careful interpretation.

: Five O'Clock: Getting Ready for Tennis

Peggy Scriven
Those interested in lawn tennis, whether as spectators of championship matches or as players of the game on the club courts, will tune in eagerly to a talk by one of our star English players, who is to speak, at the beginning of yet another season, about the game and everything concerning it.
Peggy Scriven, Yorkshire-born, living in Surrey, is a Wimbledon player, and has represented Great Britain against America in the Wightman Cup. In 1933 and again in 1934 she won the Women's Singles Championship in Paris. A few weeks ago, showing that she is at the top of her form, she won the Women's Singles at the Hard Court Tournament at Felixstowe and also the Mixed Doubles, partnered by the Belgian, L. Borman.

2-' Johnson's Day Off'
Here is another adventure of those ingenious domestic servants, Thomp- son, butler, and Mrs. Johnson, cook, who are in the service of a very aristocratic family, but their aristocracy has to live down a little to their diminished income, and one has the feeling that the mistress's ideas on diet are prompted by the overdraft at the bank. Thompson and Johnson, however, are not the kind of people to be done by a thing like that-even if (as they did recently) they ate the chicken bought for the master's table and sent upstairs instead the mince that was meant for the maid. With Norah Howard as Johnson and Leslie Henson as Thompson there is no limit to the fun.

: ' THE STRANGE ADVENTURES OF MR. PENNY '

by Maurice Moiseiwitsch
Second Series: Episode No. 3
With Richard Goolden as Mr. Penny
A fortnight ago ' Mr. Penny ' came back on the air to the delight of countless listeners in one of the very best episodes he has given. The crying of poor Annie who was so nearly given a mixture of plaster of Paris by her father (unintentionally, of course) while her mother was at the sales was only equalled by the fine performance of Richard Goolden as the little man. Today both he and listeners will learn of the troubles that lie in store for one who is so unfailingly kind, courteous, and gentle. They may think twice before offering to deliver a parcel for a stranger, and assuredly few would show the courage displayed by this citizen with a conscience at a moment of crisis and even danger.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
