Wind Quintet, Op. 43 played by the Copenhagen Wind Quintet:
Poul Birkelund (flute)
Erik Hovaldt (oboe)
Ib Eriksson (clarinet) Leif Carlsen (bassoon)
Knud Olsen (horn)
(Recording made available by courtesy of Statsradiolonien, Copenhagen)
Nielsen's last chamber work, completed m 1922 (shortly after his fifth symphony), reveals both his intimate understanding of the woodwind instruments and his deep and kindly sense of humour. It was written for the original members of the Copenhagen Wind Quintet, who were personal friends of his, and was intended to reflect, to some extent, their individual characters: in particular, we make the acquaintance of a highly fastidious flautist, a clarinettist of uncertain temper, and an imperturbable bassoonist. D.C.

Eddington's Fish-Net
Last of four talks by Stephen Toulmin
Lecturer in the Philosophy of Science in the University of Oxford
Are physical theories essentially subjective, as was suggested by Eddington? Stephen Toulmin argues that without going as far as Eddington one must recognise the part played by the physicist in determining the structure of physical theory.

Talk by Emil Brunner
In this talk Dr Brunner considers the recent work of Rudolf Bultmann , whose demythologising has caused concern to many scholars as challenging the historical element in the Gospel, and he discusses the criterion of legitimate. demythologising. Dr. Brunner believes that whatever in the Bible is essential for our understanding of God and ourselves must be left as it stands. With this qualification he accepts much of the work done by Professor Bultmann and answers the criticism made in a recent talk by Professor H. D. Lewis.

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.
