: 'FEUILLE D'ALBUM'

A short story by Katherine Mansfield
Read by Micheline Patton
The fame of Katherine Mansfield -her real name, until she married Middleton Murry in 1913, was Katherine Beauchamp-rests entirely on her short stories. She did plan a novel once, but abandoned it, and her weekly reviews of novels in the Athenceum (reprinted in 1930, seven years after her death) showed that she possessed a fine critical sense. But during her short life of thirty-four years, she put the best of herself into her stories.
Fertile in ideas though she was, she always found it difficult to begin writing. But when the beginning was made, she worked quickly and easily. ' Once I start them they haunt me, pursue me, and plague me until they are finished..... There is no feeling to be compared with the feeling of having written and finished a story.'

: A Sonata Recital

Anthony Pini (violoncello)
Olive Bloom (pianoforte)
There were two Marcellos in Venice at the end of the seventeenth and in the first half of the eighteenth centuries, and though both were outstanding figures of their time, it is the younger, Benedetto, who is best remembered now. There is a monument to him in the Church of San Giuseppe of Brescia, and the inscription calls him statesman, musician, and poet. But he was a good many other things besides. Music was his diversion, not his calling, but he was so eminent a violinist and composer as to leave his mark for all time on the course it was to take. His own music for the church and the concert room entitle him to a place of honour among the lesser classical composers.
Sonata in F sharp minor (in one movement)
Hure Jean Hure was born in 1877, began his career as a concert pianist, and later founded the Paris Ecole Normale de Musique. Among Hure's chamber music there are three sonatas for cello and piano. The first in F sharp minor is cast in four linked movements, which are preceded by a prelude and followed by Postlude.

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.
