TT is one piece of our musical history on which we may look back with some satisfaction, that this country was among the first, outside his native Bohemia, to recognize the genius of Dvorak. English amateurs especially were quick in seizing on his chamber music as it appeared, and making it warmly welcome as a-splendid addition to the world's fund of truly wholesomo music-fresh, buoyant,simple, and with something of the intimate friendliness which long ago made Haydn's and Schubert's seem like a personal legacy to every group of devotees throughout the world. Dvorak, a violinist himself, wroto thirteen string quartets among much other chamber music, and each in its own way reveals part of the man himself, his joys and sorrowings, his delight in Nature, his devotion to his home-
I land : on every page, in every bar almost, it is plain to the most heedless listener as it is to the enthralled player, that Dvorak was speaking straight from his simple, kindly heart, of the things he felt most deeply. Great as are many of his works in which music and words are wedded, there is not much doubt that he was happiest in such pure music as this String Quartet, where no bonds were set to his rich imagination, except the logic of the form in which he chose to express his fragrant thoughts.
Opus 80 was composed in 187G, his thirty-sixth year, before his fame had spread very far beyond Bohemia's froptiers, eight years before he paid his first visit to England.

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.
