DORIS HARDCASTLE
Sonata in C, Op. 11, No. 3..Mediner
Medtner occupies a rather curious place in modern Russian music, for he cannot be attached to either of the two chief schools of Russian composers, headed by Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninoff on the one hand and the Russian Nationalists on the other. But underneath a surface "f austerity and intellectual application that characterises a classical attitude towards his art, Medtner's music is found to be imbued with delicate poetic meaning. The piano is his favourite medium of expression, and for this instrument alone and in conjunction with the voice Medtner has written a large amount of music, including a piano concerto, numerous short pieces, and several sonatas.

Valentine Williams
In recent years a considerable number of the population of Great Britain have exchanged out-of-date overcrowded conditions of living for modern flats and houses on the new estates built and managed by various Councils and trusts throughout the country. Today Valentine Williams, who introduced the series last week, is to bTing to the microphone a man who is a tenant on a big housing estate in Greater London, a housewife from one of the new block dwellings of flats in Central London, and a man who is a tenant on a large housing estate in the Midlands. They will tell listeners what differences these housing estates have made to their lives.

: A PIANOFORTE RECITAL

by Cyril Smith
Lento assai — Allegro energico. Andante sostenuto-Allegro energico — Stretto — Presto—Andante sostenuto
Liszt's only sonata was completed on February 2, 1853, and was dedicated to Schumann in acknowledgment of the dedication of the latter's great Fantasia, Op. 17. The first public performance was given in Berlin, in January, 1857, by Hans von Biilow, who played it on the first grand piano manufactured by his friend Carl Bechstein.
In every way the Sonata was an epoch-making work. It is undoubtedly one of Liszt's greatest compositions and on every page of it there is evidence of the immense imagination that went to its making.

' The Collision of H.M.S. Victoria and H.M.S. Camperdown'
Commander Frederick George
Loring, R.N., O.B.E.
This talk is about one of the most famous collisions in all naval history -that of H.M.S. Victoria and H.M.S. CamperdoKn, which took place forty-five years ago.
H.M.S. Victoria, the ship which went down, causing the death of twenty-two officers and three hundred and thirty-six men, was the flagship of the Commander-in-Chief of the Mediterranean fleet, Admiral Sir George Tryon. During naval manoeuvres and in full sight of the whole fleet she and the Camperdown, the flag-ship of Admiral Markham collided.
The interesting thing about the story is that those in the fleet who were on deck at the time realised that a collision was inevitable and could have been averted for many minutes before it actually took place. Why this was so, how it could have happened, and the story behind the event, as well as the actual story of his escape, you will hear from Commander Loring, who is one of the survivors of the Victoria. (Incidentally, the late Admiral Lord Jellicoe was another.)

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.
