Robert Masters (violin) Nannie Jamieson (viola)
Muriel Taylor (cello)
Kinloch Anderson (piano)
Aaron Copland , probably the most important American composer of today, wrote his Piano Quartet in 1950. It was introduced to a London audience last February by the artists who tonight are broadcasting it for the first time in this country. It has three movements: Adagio serio (which opens in fugai style), Allegro giusto (characterised by incisive rhythmical phrases), and Non troppo lento (a lyrical movement containing some unusual sonorities). H.R.

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.
