: FRIDAY MIDDAY CONCERT

Under the direction of Johan Hock from Queen's College Chambers
Lecture Hall, Birmingham
A Recital by Johan Hock (violoncello) and Beatrice Hewitt
(pianoforte)
Beethoven's A major Sonata for 'cello and piano was published in April, 1809, at the same time as the Fifth and Sixth Symphonies. Written at the height of Beethoven's maturity, it is one of his finest chamber works. Its general character of good-humoured dignity is relieved only by the scherzo. In a work remarkable throughout for sheer loveliness of sound the chief subjects of the first' movement and finale are outstanding. The finale combines Beethoven's characteristic nobility and tenderness with an almost Mozartian light-heartedness ; the return of the chief subject is particularly memorable.
The 'Cello Sonatas, Op. 102,
No. 1, in C and No. 2, in D, were composed in the summer of 1815 at Baden. At that time Linke, 'cellist of the Rasumovsky Quartet was staying with the Countess Erdody at Jedlersee and Beethoven frequently visited the house. The C major which Beethoven himself called a ' free sonata ' is rather more austere in character than the A major which opens this programme.

Interlude
2.5 Travel Talk
' Hong Kong'
B. G. Birch
Mr. Birch, who is attached to the University of Hong Kong, will give you a picture of Hong Kong Harbour, where ' today ' and ' yesterday ' join hands. You will see there the great liners of Europe and Japan, the most up-to-date warships of China's fleet, and in among them old Chinese junks and sampans, or rowboats, belonging, you might suppose, to a thousand years ago. Then Mr. Birch will take you ashore and show you the island of Hong Kong. A single century of British occupation has changed Hong Kong from a barren island to one of the largest and richest cities of the East.

: BLAZINGE OF ARMES

The Pageant of Heraldry Through the Ages
Devised by Jonquil Anthony
Produced by Pascoe Thornton
(Empire Programme)
The eve of the Coronation, when the topic of heralds and heraldry is so much written about and discussed, seems a fitting moment for a programme about them to be broadcast.
The major difficulty of the author was the fact that a great deal of the material is not printed at all, and, as often as not, is in Norman French. He is grateful to the Portcullis Pursuivant, Mr. A. R. Wagner , for his expert help and advice in so technical a subject.
One of the characters introduced is Julyana Berners , prioress of the old monastery of St. Albans, Sopewell, and authoress of ' The Book of St. Albans', the first complete work on armory and heraldry ever written. The title of the programme, Blazinge of Armes, was her own expression.

Beethoven's Quartet in E flat, Op. 127, was commissioned by Prince Galitzin-to whom it is dedicated-in 1822. But Beethoven was entirely occupied with his Ninth Symphony and was unable to begin work on the quartet until 1824 when staying among the pine woods of Baden. ' In ir we find', says Vincent d'Indy, the crowning expression of that love of nature of which he gave such wonderful evidence in the course of his career '.

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.
