This afternoon the two children, Mark and Prudence, will be introduced by two well-contrasted Biblical characters. In the garden where they habitually meet their friend the Angel, they will learn about Samson and Ruth. The Angel (using the Revised Version of the Old Testament) will introduce them to that ' humorous giant' who for all his violence seldom loses the reader's sympathy and admiration. There will be time to deal with the whole-of Ruth, an exquisite pastoral which sings rather than speaks for itself, and which established for ever one of the noblest characters in literature. The Angel will bring the scenes to life dramatically, and do his best to answer the children's questions.

Brahms's Piano Quintet in F minor is regarded as his most important early work. It was originally conceived as a string quintet, but after it had been thoroughly tested in that form by Joachim and his colleagues, they explained to Brahms that no five string players could hope to achieve the huge effects which the music clearly demanded. Brahms then rewrote it as a sonata for two pianos, in which form it is still often heard. Finally he adapted it for piano quintet.
The South Place Sunday Concerts
It may truly be said that the South Place concerts have done for chamber music what the Proms have done for orchestral music. Throughout the fifty-one seasons that have been given by the South Place society, the finest artists have been engaged, with the result that the audiences have been able to hear chamber music of all periods under the best conditions.
The South Place Sunday Popular
Concerts began giving first-rate chamber concerts in a dingy hall, formerly the headquarters of the South Place Ethical Society, near Finsbury Circus in the City of London, in 1887-a time when chamber music in England was very little known, except for the Monday ' Pops ' held at the old St. James's Hall. The scene has been shifted to Red Lion Square, but the concerts themselves remain true to the tradition set up by the pioneers.

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.
