: 'HOW WILD IS THE WEST?'

A talk by Cedric Belfrage
This is the first of two talks in which the speaker is going to discuss aspects of America in which he is particularly interested. Today he is going to tell listeners about the ' cow country ' of Texas, as it is now and as once it was.
Cedric Belfrage has been living in Hollywood for some years writing books. He was at one time film and dramatic critic of The Daily Express, and was a familiar voice on the air when he gave his regular BBC film talks. He is the author of a number of books of travel, a new one of which, dealing with the Negroes in the Southern States of America, is to be published shortly.

8.28 Lento assai and Vivace (String
Quartet in F, Op. 135)
Beethoven's last group of five string quartets is generally acknowledged to be the crowning achievement of his life's work and the highest point to which the string quartet has been brought. Beethoven began work on them in the summer of 1824 and completed them in November, 1826, about four months before he died. Despite the fact that these quartets were conceived for four solo instruments, the nature of the music of some of the movements, such as the Grosse Fuge , lends itself to the medium of a string orchestra.
The two movements to be heard this evening from the Quartet in F, Op. 135, which was written in 1826 and is virtually Beethoven's last completed work, are the third and second movements respectively.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
