' The Nature Detective '
' The Finger-print Department'
W. W. WILLIAMS
Every reader of detective stories knows how much may depend on a careful study of finger-prints. The nature detective, too, has a great deal to learn from studying the places where wild animals and birds have placed their fingers-or rather, their toes. This study, better known to us as ' tracking ', will form the subject of Watkin Williams 's talk this afternoon.

: ' I WAS THERE'

The Valparaiso Earthquake, 1906
R. A. Blyth
Listeners are to hear the story of the Valparaiso earthquake told by a man who was an accountant in one of the big foreign banks there at the time. He had been four years in Valparaiso before the disaster happened. He will describe how he was sitting over coffee after dinner on the evening of August 16, 1906, when
. the first terrific shock came. Lights went out, the ceiling collapsed on the table, and the door jammed. After the second shock he forced the door open and was lucky enough to escape with his life. In this evening's exciting talk he will tell listeners how eight thousand people were killed that night and over twenty-five thousand injured.

The Spencer Dyke
String Quartet:
Spencer Dyke (violin) ;
Tatc Gilder (violin) ;
Bernard Shore (viola) ;
Cedric Sharpe (violoncello)
The String Quartet in D was
Franck's last instrumental work designed on a large scale. It was written in 1889, a year before his death. With the exception of the delicate and slick Scherzo. all the movements of this Quartet are designed in an elaborate manner.
The first movement is in full sonata form, in the slow introduction to which the chief cyclic theme is heard at the outset on the first violin.
The third movement, larghetto, is one of the most beautiful of all .Franck's slow movements: in the Trio the opening cyclic theme is introduced with fine effect.
The introduction to the Finale is after the style of Beethoven's introduction to the Finale of the Ninth Symphony: the principal themes of the three movements are passed in rapid review until the composer decides to make the opening cyclic theme the first subject of the movement. In view of the clever way in which the composer makes use in this movement of themes from previous movements, this Finale is an admirable and powerful summing up of the whole work. One of the chief characteristics of this Quartet is its slowness of tempo. The slow movement itself is exceptionally long and is designed on a very large scale.

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.
