: CHAMBER MUSIC

The New English String Quartet:
Winifred Small (violin)
Eveline Thompson (violin) " Winifred Stiles (viola)
Florence Hooton (violoncello)
Russian chamber music is a younger growth than Russian opera or Russian orchestral music. Glinka's essays in this genre have failed to keep a place in the repertoire and it may be said that serious Russian chamber music begins with Tchaikovsky's first two quartets (1871 and 1874) and Borodin's magnificent Quartet in A (1875).
Borodin's Second Quartet in D was written four or five years after its predecessor and published only after the composer's death in 1887. It is a delightful thing, as full of limpid melody—' linked sweetness long drawn out '-as anything of Schubert's. The third movement, a langorous nocturne, is often played as a separate piece. The finale is definitely stamped as Borodin's by the opening theme on the lower strings ; it is marked by the same peculiar little melodic twist as the opening theme of his B minor Symphony.

: 'PENSIONED OFF'

' A Banker'
Lynn Doyle
Here is the first talk of a new series
-first broadcast last night on the Northern Ireland wavelength-the idea of which is to find out how we spend our leisure after reaching the age of retiring. To some it is a time long looked forward to, in which a man may do the thing he has always longed to do. To some it is a time of delightful idleness when they have no longer to catch the 8.2 up but may dawdle in the garden. Yet others turn their leisure to useful account, perhaps in a new job, paid or unpaid for ; and others are so bored with doing nothing that their leisure time seems to be thrown away.
The example to come to the microphone today is that of a man who is able to retire with a very active hobby — perhaps the happiest example of all.

: THE BBC SCOTTISH ORCHESTRA

Leader, J. Mouland Begbie
Conducted by Ian Whyte
In one year, 1788, Mozart composed the last three and the three greatest symphonies he was to write before his death three years later. They were all written within less than two months, the E flat major (No. 39) being dated June 26, the G minor (No. 40), July 25, and the ' Jupiter ' in C (No. 41) August 10. Each is emotionally different, yet all are unmistakably Mozart at his very finest.
The E flat Symphony is happiness itself, the ' Jupiter ' all dignity and grace, while of the G minor Otto Jahn , Mozart's biographer, wrote that it seems to express a sorrow rising ' in a continuous climax to a wild movement, as though seeking to stifle care '. It is as though Mozart had in this triptych deliberately written in terms of music that part of his autobiography which can alone be so expressed.

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.
