: ' THE MARK ON THE SHUTTER'

A short story by Desmond MacCarthy -
, read by Ronald Watkins
Here is a story, written with Desmond MacCarthy 's sure touch, of a collection of pleasant and unpleasant little boys and of one boy in particular with a conscience-which is destined to be made elastic by the world around him before he grows to be a man.
The setting, a preparatory school ; time, mid-winter term ; the opening scene, the library in which the whole school is boxed up after a three days' storm. No safety valve
-something bound to happen. Then shortly before lunch one morning the school is summoned by the Head to the Big Playroom. Someone has defaced one of the shutters in the library with a drawing or inscription no longer decipherable. Will the culprit own up ?

Quartet in B minor (unfinished)
Lekeu
1 Dans un emportement douloureux (tres anime). 2 Lent et Passionne
Guillaume Lekeu (1870-1894), on* of Franck's most brilliant pupils, was a Belgian like his master. His untimely death cut short his work on this quartet, beside which the well-known Violin Sonata was (in his own words) to be ' but a penny toy '.
' The subject of the first movement ', he wrote, ' is bitter, convulsive sorrow, softened now and again into passionate melancholy. But, as the second movement is to indicate Love as the source of this sorrow, I am forced, while working at the first movement, to keep the second clearly before me, and to weave my themes and patterns so that they may be completely unified with those to follow later.'
In 1893 he wrote to Ysaye: 'I can tell you that my interminable quartet is growing ; in a week the first movement will be finished. I have done my best to set down in it my dream of the keenest, the most sacred grief and passion..... The second movement is to be at once a nocturne and a love-scene.' But he never finished that love-scene; it was left for Vincent d'Indy to complete his comrade's swan song.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
