: 'MYSELF AND LIFE'

Today's talk is the last in this series. It is a recording of the views of two anonymous speakers, one of whom is in the forties, and the other still in the twenties.

: A RECITAL The Philharmonic String Quartet:

Charles Bye (violin)
Geoffrey Parker-Smith (violin)
Horace Ayckbourn (viola)
George Roth (violoncello) Beethoven's six Quartets, Op. 18, were composed in the period 1798-
1800 and published in Vienna in 1801, the first set of three in June, the second set in October. They were dedicated to the composer's friend and admirer, Prince Lobkowitz, himself an excellent violinist. No. 4 in C minor is the finest of the six, full - at any rate in the first and fourth movements-of deep lyrical feeling and great dramatic power. As again in the ' Pathctique ' Sonata, the Violin Sonata. Op. 30, and the Fifth Symphony, Beethoven chose the key of C minor to express deep and passionate emotion.

: THE BBC ORCHESTRA

(Section E)
Led by Laurance Turner
Conducted by W. H. Reed
W. H. Reed says of the ' Lincoln Imp ', which he ' dedicated with affectionate esteem to Sir Edward Elgar, O.M.': 'Concerning the Imp in Lincoln Cathedral, there is a legend that, when wandering bent upon mischief, he chanced to fall in with the north-east wind, riding upon it until the cathedral was sighted. Bidding the north-east wind await his return, the Imp proceeded within. Vaulting the benches, he espied the bell rope, jangled the bells, strummed upon the organ, tore the vestments to shreds, and broke the brazen candlesticks across his knees. Intending to work his crowning mischief upon the altar, he found" his way barred by an angel ; putting out his hand to stroke the wonderful shining hair, he was, for his presumption, immediately turned to stone. The north-east wind still waits for him outside '.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
