(The first and last items are recorded) Raymond Warren's String Trio is in two
Allegro movements, the second of which has a slow introduction.
The Cornish composer, Inglis Gundry, was asked to compose a song for Jane Vowles from Blake's 'Songs of Experience.' He decided to expand it into a song cycle, which he has dedicated to her. In R. W. Wood's Piano Quartet, written in 1941 and later revised, the piano is treated as one of the ensemble, the composer's problem being to prevent it from predominating over the stringed instruments.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome
