: FRIDAY MIDDAY CONCERT

Schubert more than once made use of the same melody in more than one work. This quartet is a case in point ; it takes its name from the slow movement which is a very beautiful set of variations on his song ' Death and the Maiden '. Alike to chamber-music enthusiasts and to the plain man to whom simple melody appeals, this is among the finest of all the works which Schubert left, rich in all the qualities that endear him to us.
There are four movements : the first, brilliant and energetic with the usual two main themes. The ' Death and the . Maiden ' variations come next, and then there is a merry scherzo, with a trio based on a fine. flowing melody. The last movement is in the brightest of good spirits throughout.

@ Broadcast Music
GEORGE DYSON
Week by week in this series Scott Goddard selects some musical work from the following week's general programmes and discusses it for Schools. Once a term, however, he stands down and some big figure in the musical world takes his place.
Today the listening schools are to hear George Dyson , who was music master at Winchester College for fourteen years before taking up his new appointment as Principal of the Royal College of Music. His name will be known to many listeners for his school songs.
Following the custom of the series, he will choose a work from next week's programmes and discuss it at the microphone, giving illustrations from records or playing them himself on the piano.

: 'THE OVERCOAT'

@ The short story by Nicolai Gogol adapted as a play for broadcasting by J. Miller and J. Littlewood
Production by Leslie Stokes
(Empire Programme)
Nicolai Gogol (1809-1852) is generally regarded as one of the founders, with Pushkin, of modern Russian literature. And this story, ' The Overcoat '-or, as it is sometimes called, ' The Cloak '—is one of its foundation-stones. ' We have all', ', said no less an authority than Dostoevsky, ' come out of Gogol's cloak '. And it is certainly true that the mixture of pathos, realism, fantasy, and ironic humour which Gogol gives us in this story-and still more the pity it arouses for the unfortunate little government clerk who is its hero-sounded the keynote of a great quantity of Russian fiction.

: 'THE DISAPPEARANCE OF GHOSTS'

Humphrey Jennings
A talk by Humphrey Jennings on ' Plagiarism in Poetry', broadcast last October, was repeated in December. This time he is to trace how ghosts, treated by Greek and Elizabethan writers, and even as late as the nineteenth century as real phenomena, are now treated with scepticism. The speaker has produced films, helped to organise a Surrealist exhibition, and contributed to ' Mass Observation ', a book arising out of the Coronation.

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.
