Beethoven's Quartet in A minor is the fourth of the last group of five great string quartets, in which Beethoven surpassed all his previous essays in this form. The bigger part of the work was composed during March-August, 1825, but it was interrupted during the spring owing to severe illness. Many annotators believe that Beethoven's mental and physical anguish is reflected in the music of this quartet. Although it is dangerous to read biographical programmes into a composer's music, to some extent it is justified in this case by the character of the music, which is unmistakably expressive of the composer's mind at that time. Furthermore, we are supported by Beethoven's own inscription on the original MS. at the beginning of the slow movement, which reads : ' Song of thanksgiving to the Deity on recovery from an illness, written in the Lydian mode '.

: 'ZAR UND ZIMMERMANN'

(' Tsar and Carpenter ')
Act 2 of Lortzing's Opera from the Berlin State Opera House
The Berlin State Opera Orchestra
Conductor, Robert Heger
Producer, Hanns Friederici
Peter the Great of Russia, who is staying in Saardam disguised as a carpenter in order to learn the art of ship-building, has become friendly with another Russian, the deserter Peter Ivanov.
In Act 2 we see both Peters at a wedding feast at an inn. The ambassadors of England and France are there, too, both trying to find the Tsar in order to negotiate an alliance with Russia. The French ambassador penetrates the Tsar's disguise, but Lord Syndham takes the other Peter to be the emperor. Suddenly the burgomaster breaks in with a troop of soldiers to arrest the mysterious foreigners who have been enticing Dutch workmen out of the country. The stupid burgomaster, however, arrests the ambassadors and is then about to lay hands on Peter Ivanov when someone whispers that it is the Tsar of Russia. He is overwhelmed with confusion and the act ends with a general outburst of merriment.

Arthur Bryant
Arthur Bryant will be affectionately remembered by many listeners for his series of broadcasts on ' The National Character' in 1933-a series so important that it was introduced by Earl Baldwin , then Mr. Stanley Baldwin. Mr. Bryant has not broadcast since May, 1936, when he gave a talk on travelling in ' Living in the Past'. Listeners will be interested to hear what poems are enjoyed by this fine broadcaster and distinguished man of letters, deviser of many pageants, and author of biographies of Charles II and Macaulay, of ' Samuel Pepys , The Years of Peril', and The American Ideal '.

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.
