: CHAMBER MUSIC

The Reginald Paul Pianoforte Quartet:
Marjorie Hayward (violin) ; Watson Forbes (viola) ; John Moore (violoncello) ; Reginald Paul (pianoforte)
The introduction of an obbligato piano (or one of its predecessors) became a fairly general practice only towards the middle of the eighteenth century ; the treatment of the harpsichord in Couperin's ' Concerts royaux ', one of which is to be broadcast on Saturday, is quite exceptional.
Johann Schobert (d. 1767) was the first composer to exploit the medium of piano and strings at all fully, and the first movement of this Mozart quartet-published in 1786, a month after Figaro appeared-shows a considerable affinity with Schobert.
Fantasy...........................Arnold Foster
Pianoforte Quartet in A minor,
Op. 21.....................Howells 1 Allegro moderato tranquillo. 2 Lento-Molto tranquillo. 3 Ritmico molto
This Piano Quartet, by one, of the best of Stanford's many notable pupils, was the first work published under the auspices of the Carnegie Trust (in 1917). Howells is a Gloucestershire man and the Quartet was inspired by Gloucestershire scenery: three aspects of the Hill of the Chosen (Churchdown, near Gloucester), and the country of the .Cotswolds and the Severn valley.
The beautiful second subject of the first movement, like a folk tune in character, is quoted in the slow movement. The finale also provides the scherzo element in the work.

: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

An appeal on behalf of THE SAVE THE CHILDREN FUND
NURSERY SCHOOLS COMMITTEE by FLORA ROBSON
This Committee was formed in 1932 to help the small children of unemployed people by building nursery schools in ' depressed '. places, both in the Special Areas and outside. A trained superintendent with several helpers is in charge of each forty children, who attend elementary schools, with a clean bill of health.
For the last two years the Commissioner for the Special Areas_has helped generously with the costs of new buildings, but the Nursery Schools Committee has to provide the balance of the costs and running expenses-in some cases for a time; in other cases, particularly in South Wales, permanently.
There are now nine nurseries. One of them, for sixty children, has a waiting list of 192 children. Two nurseries have already been extended to meet the demand, extensions are scheduled for another, and two new nurseries will open in September.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to [address removed]

: ' WHAT A FOOL I FELT'

Kenneth Rankin
Kenneth Rankin , who is to give talks on cricket in ' Background to Sport' both on Wednesday and on Thurs
• day week, August 26, has been a devoted watcher of, reader about, and talker on, the game of cricket for forty-one out of the fifty-one years of his life. He also writes about the game, and for the last four years has been Special Correspondent to the Morning Post; In addition, he is an occasional contributor to
Punch, mostly on sporting matters. But this afternoon he is to leave the subject of sport for a while to deal with various forms of acute embarrassment.
In 1927, he acted as assistant to
Captain H. B. T. Wakelam at the England v. Ireland Rugby match at Twickenham, the second broadcast of the kind ever to be given ; and he was one of the team that did the eye-witness accounts of the English Cup Final between Bolton Wanderers and Portsmouth at Wembley in 1929. Quite recently he broadcast in the ' Swapping Horses' series ; and many readers will remember that he collaborated with Captain Wakelam in two humorous features in the RADIO Times.

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.
