This is the first of five concerts of Schubert's chamber music. They may be regarded as a pendant to the recent series in which a musical biography of the composer was presented.
Further programmes in this series will be broadcast on Thursday (National, 9.20), Friday (National, 8.30), and Saturday (Midland, 7.0).
A programme specialty devised by Edward Benbow incorporating
Memories of Forgotten Customs and A Mumming Play
Presented by the Worthen Players
The scene is laid in a cottage on the Shropshire Hills
The programme produced by Robin Whitworth
Of particular interest in this programme is the appearance of the players from the village of Worthen. They have had a number of broadcasts under the direction of W.N.L. Richardson, and their speech has been recorded as an example of Shropshire dialect.
Edward Benbow , who devised this programme, is a Shropshireman. He was once a member of the Worthen Players.

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.
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.
