: 'STONE AND BRONZE'

A talk on some phases of culture in prehistoric Britain by Stuart Piggott
Recently listeners heard a talk by Professor Gordon Childe on ' Chronicles in Stone ' ; today's talk by Stuart Piggott follows it up. The speaker is a distinguished member of the younger school of British archaeologists, who has done important field work in this country and is already an authority of international standing on neolithic theories. He works at the Morven Institute of Archæological Research at Avebury, and is the author of ' The Progress of Early Man ', a story of man's remote past, published two years ago.

Chamber Music
Joan Coxon (soprano)
John Francis (flute)
The Philharmonic String Trio:
David Martin (violin)
Frederick Riddle (viola)
James Whitehead (violoncello)
JOHN FRANCIS , DAVID MARTIN , AND
JAMES WHITEHEAD
Trio No. 1, in D
1 Adagio cantabile. 2 Allegro. 3 Tempo di minuetto
JOAN COXON
A Pastoral Song
The Mermaid's Song
JOHN FRANCIS AND TRIO Quartet No. 2, in G
1 Presto assai. 2 Minuetto. 3 Adagio. 4 Presto assai
Although Haydn is universally acknowledged to be one of the greatest composers of all time, an enormous quantity of his work is quite unknown not only to the ordinary listener but to the great majority of professional musicians. In this ' enormous quantity ' the chamber music with flute must certainly be included.
All three of the Trios for flute and strings — ' easy-going, early-middle Haydn ', as Sir Donald Tovey has called them-are included in this week's special recitals. Five of the Quartets for flute and strings are also to be played.
It will be noticed that Haydn invariably handles the flute with extraordinary sympathy and technical insight.
Further programmes in this series will be broadcast on Tuesday (Regional, 6.0), Wednesday (Regional,
8.0), Friday (National, 10.0), and Saturday (Regional, 7.30).

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.

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