A violin and pianoforte recital
Olive Zorian and Denis Matthews
Both Busoni's sonatas for violin and piano are in the key of E minor. The first (Op. 29), written in 1891, won him the Rubinstein Prize at Helsingfors. The second, Op. 36a, dates from ten years later. 'Though distinctly reminiscent of Brahms in its thematic material', writes Cecil Gray, 'it is most brilliantly written for both instruments, and concludes with a number of variations on a Bach choral which, more than anything else in his early work, foreshadows the great change about to take place in the composer, the transition period of experiment from which the mature Busoni emerged much later'.
Brahms's Sonata Movement
The Sonata Movement in C minor is a vigorous scherzo forming the third movement of the violin and piano sonata which was composed by Dietrich (first movement) Schumann, and Brahms (third movement) 'in anticipation of the arrival of our beloved and honoured friend, Joseph Joachim'.
The whole sonata was broadcast for the first time on July 30 last year.

: Bloodhounds of Broadway

by Damon Runyon
Adapted for broadcasting by Dick O'Connor
This is the first of a series of radio adaptations from Damon Runyon. A year or two ago this slick American writer took Britain by storm with his strangely mannered style and his stories of New York low life told in the Broadway idiom.
'Bloodhounds of Broadway' is a story in which Runyon is at his best, and laughs should not be wanting in this fabulous tale of the long trail through many most inconvenient places of two man-tracking bloodhounds.


Author: Damon Runyon
Adapted for broadcasting by: Dick O'Connor
Producer: Laurence Gilliam

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.
