: A STUDIO CONCERT

The Willoughby String Quartet:
Louis Willoughby (violin); Clayton Hare (viola); Max Gilbert (viola);
Peter Beavan (violoncello)
The key of C minor seems to have appealed to Brahms whenever he wanted to express emotions of a tragic character. In the C minor String Quartet though still adhering to the classical design of sonata form, Brahms's treatment is much fuller and freer, and, with the exception of the third movement, the thematic material is closely related throughout, since it is for the most part derived from the first theme of the first movement. This initial theme, like so many of Brahms's tunes, is based on the notes of the common chord (C minor). Surging upwards on the first violin, it immediately defines the tense and stormy mood of the whole movement.

' Men and Machines '
A dramatic interlude written for broadcasting by PHYLLIS BENTLEY
A great thinker in the nineteenth century wondered whether our many mechanical inventions had really increased our happiness. Today you will hear of the great difference in our lives which the use of machinery has made. The shop windows you pass in the street show you the many articles that are turned out cheaply in thousands by machinery nowadays, instead of being made one by one by skilled hands. We are still inventing new machines and sometimes we wonder whether we won't all become like machines. The broadcast today will put before you some of the advantages and disadvantages of machinery.

: ' MY DAY'S WORK '

Harry Dean
Many listeners will have travelled by the Irish Mail, but many of them may think when they hear this talk that they have never heard a more entertaining account of the journey. But then Harry Dean is more than a dining-car attendant-he is a great character, a poet, a painter, a humorist, and an observer of nature and human nature. He has waited on Royalty, he can tell you about Snooks the highwayman who lies buried near Boxmoor, and he knows the real beauty of North Wales. He has also a fund of good stories and a way of telling them. When next you travel to Holyhead you will be likely to seek the acquaintance of Harry Dean.

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.
