: A Sonata Recital

Eugene Nemish (violin)
Guy Jonson (pianoforte)
Schubert's Duo, or Sonata, Op. 162, dates from 1817, the composer's twentieth year. Like the later ' Trout ' Quintet, it shows him adopting a brilliant style-prevalent in most of his later chamber music with piano-that differentiates it markedly from Beethoven's instrumental works, which otherwise were his favourite models. The Duo is a most attractive work, brimming over with unmistakably Schubertian melody.
In the summer of 1781 Mozart wrote four violin sonatas, of which this is the first. It is" a charming little work, graceful and transparent in style, with an idyllic slow movement. The finale moves at a very quick tempo and has something of the character of a Viennese marcM*

: 'NO DUTIES SPECIFIED'

A short story written for broadcasting by John Gloag and read by the author
When two rich young company directors sat back on their laurels and decided that they had earned for themselves a world cruise, they little dreamed of what the passenger list would hold for them.
Actually it held one, Sonia Dreene ,
' a sun-soaked blonde with violet eyes and dark gold hair, and a voice that made any word she spoke sound so soft and magic and wonderful that you hated her to stop talking.'
That two men should fall in love with one girl is a common enough occurrence both in life and in fiction, but there is nothing ordinary in the outcome of this story, nothing more sinister or surprising than its climax.

: 'OLD CHISELBACK'

by Bernard Fishwick
Produced by W. Farquharson Small
' Old Chiselback ' is the name given to the granite stonecutter in the Cornish stone yards. The part of ' Old Chiselback ' in this production will be played by half-a-dozen Cornish granite workers, each one portraying a different part of ' Old Chiselback's ' past and present life.
The programme will attempt to show the effect of granite working on the men themselves, and will depict the processes of quarrying and working the stone.
Some famous buildings made of Cornish granite are the London
County Hall, the National Museum of Wales at Cardiff, the Singapore Naval Base, and the new Lambeth Bridge.

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.
