' Wee Willie Winkie ' a story by ALISON UTTLEY , told by MURIEL
A handicraft talk by MORNA LOCKE in which she will tell you about leather-work, beak-making bead-painting and shadow embroidery


Unknown: Willie Winkie
Story By: Alison Uttley
Talk By: Morna Locke


Conductor, T. H. MORRISON
Scherzo is an Italian word meaning ' jest ' or ' joke ' and in a piece of music in sonata or symphony form the scherzo is usually the lightest of its movements. It was Beethoven who substituted the scherzo for the classical minuet which, up to his time, usually formed the third movement of a work in sonata style. Even Haydn's minuet movements had got further away from the dance form and anticipated the scherzo of Beethoven. One of Beethoven's finest scherzos is undoubtedly that of the ' Eroica', which will be played this evening in a programme that will give a very good idea of the possibilities of the scherzo.

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.
