: A PIANOFORTE RECITAL

by Phyllis Simons
Even those people who deny that Brahms deserves to be placed alongside Beethoven as a symphonist all agree that he was unsurpassed as a miniaturist ; as a composer of songs and short piano pieces. The two pieces to be heard this morning will give listeners a good idea of Brahms's great genius in this direction. The dainty, light, and fanciful Capriccio in B minor is a particularly attractive example.
Beethoven's Thirty-two Variations were written in 1806 and therefore represent the composer in full command of his creative gifts. The key scheme of these Variations is interesting: Variations 1-12 are in C minor, 13-17 in C major, and 18-32 in C minor. F. Bonavia, in an article on this work in the RADIO
TIMES, points out that Beethoven ' in the Thirty-two Variations recalls Bach on account of the material and spiritual unity of a work that resembles a chaconne in every particular. There is no change of rhythm and the only change in tonality is given by the passage from minor into major '.

: 'BEE KEEPING'

' Re-Queening and Honey
Extraction'
R. Gamble
In his talk today Reginald Gamble is to discuss the happiest time of the year for bee-keepers-the removal of surplus honey. He will point out that they are not robbing the bees-' robbing the hive is very bad bee-keeping'. He will discuss the method by which bees have been induced to store more honey than they will require for their own needs. He will tell listeners just how and when to extract the honey, and the type of knife to use, and go on to explain what to do with the honey when it has been extracted.
Next he will speak about making mead and pass on to listeners his wife's own recipe. Finally he will talk on ' re-queening '.
Bee-keeper listeners will be interested to hear that in September Gamble hopes to bring to the microphone Brother Adam, the well-known bee-keeper of Buckfast Abbey, who will discuss the production of Devonshire heather honey, queen rearing, and bee-keeping at the famous Abbey apiary, one of the finest in the world.

: A PIANOFORTE RECITAL

by Frank Merrick
Frank Merrick is quite a familiar name to listeners for he is often to be heard in broadcast recitals. For over twenty years he has been a professor at the Royal Academy of Music, where many gifted young pianists have passed through his hands. In 1910 a programme of Mr. Merrick's own music gained a diploma of Honour at the International Rubinstein Competition in St. Petersburg, and during the Schubert Centenary Celebrations he won a competition for the completion of Schubert's ' Unfinished'
Symphony, which was broadcast. As a pianist Frank Merrick is not only a fine artist but one who possesses catholic tastes and sympathies.
His enterprise is shown in the present programme for reviving a work of outstanding merit. Hummel was the greatest rival of Beethoven. However, time has shown that his genius was considerably less than Beethoven's, but there is absolutely no reason wjiy his best works, such as the Sonata in D, should be so neglected today.

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.
