: Chamber Music STUART REDFERN STRING QUARTET:

Stuart Redfern (violin); Harold Harper (violin); Frederick R. Amor (viola); Carrodus Taylor (violoncello)
Dvorak's String Sextet in A was the first of the composer's chamber works to win international success. Subsequently the leader of a well-known quartet, known as the Florentine Quartet, asked Dvorak to write a new work for him in the ' Slavonic style '. The result was the Quartet in E flat, which was written during the year 1879. It has now become known as one of the most characteristic works of the composer and one of his most spritely contributions to chamber music.
The first movement is full of rhythmic vigour and fine tunes; the second main tune is in a merry polka rhythm. The second movement is in the form of a dumka which alternates between moods of sadness and wild gaiety. The third movement is a charming romance, and the fourth and last movement, which is in the form of a Czech dance known as Skocna, is full of brilliance and good spirits.

: 'Provincial Journey'-10 ' Bangor '

Bangor, which is prettily situated in County Down, about ten miles from Belfast, has won for itself the title of ' Ulster's Brighton '. As that title implies, Bangor is a popular seaside resort in the summer. It is important historically too. One of the first seats of learning in Ireland, an ecclesiastical colony was founded there in the sixth century, and it still possesses a fine ancient abbey.
As for the programme which is to come from Bangor tonight, the town is rich in local talent of so many kinds that the problem has been not what to put in but what to leave out.

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.
