: BRAHMS

Sonata in E minor. Op. 38
1 Allegro non troppo. 2 Allegretto quasi minuetto. 3 Allegro played by Audrey Piggott (violoncello)
Dorothea Aspinall (pianoforte)
Brahms's Cello Sonata in E minor, which was published in 1876, is the first of his duet sonatas. The first movement is serious and tragic in character. The second is one of those delightful intermezzo-like movements of which Brahms was such a master. Its delicate fancy and lightness of touch, particularly in the trio, make it one of the most attractive movements in all Brahms's chamber works. Although the finale is a magnificent piece of writing in strict fugue, the music, apart from its form and technique, has a ready appeal for the ordinary listener.

The Kinnaird Trophy
A commentary on the one mile by Harold Abrahams from Chiswick Stadium
The Kinnaird Trophy competition is the most important inter-club competition in British athletics, and has been promoted annually by Polytechnic Harriers for the last thirty years. About a dozen clubs participate, each club being represented by two athletes in each of the twelve events. Scoring is by points, 6, 5. 4, 3, 2, 1 for first to sixth place.
The meeting, which takes place on the Polytechnic Harriers' own ground at Chiswick (opened last year), is regarded as a kind of miniature A.A.A. Championships, and many reigning champions compete.
Listeners will probably hear an account of the mile race together with an eye-witness account of events which have taken place and observations of any field events which may be in progress.

: 'FINDING AN ANCESTOR'

by Peter Watts
Cast
Alan Wheatley as the Boy
(by permission of the London Masque
Theatre)
Eileen Erskina as The Girl
Gladys Young as The Aunt
Produced by Stephen Potter
If, like Roger Armitage , you were young, anxious to marry, but out of work-yet possibly heir to a big unclaimed estate-how would you set about tracing your missing ancestor and establishing your claim ? Probably few people have more than a very hazy idea.
This evening's programme should help them. It is not an ordinary feature programme about ' ancestor research' or ' the romance of the Record Office '. It is first and foremost a story, the charming love-story of two very nice young people, Roger Armitage and Jacqueline Leigh. But their researches into Roger's ancestry are not only exciting but authentic.

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.

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