The End of an Era by J. M. Richards
The London County Council, which the Government has just announced is to be disbanded, has done remarkable work in creating a new urban landscape in many parts of London. Housing Estates at Roehampton, in the East End, and south of the Thames have aroused admiration all over the world. J. M. Richards asks whether splitting the work of the L.C.C. Architect's Department among the London boroughs, as is now proposed, will allow anything like the same standards to be kept up; he discusses the conditions in which good architecture is possible in local government.
An illustrated talk by H. C. Robbins Landon
During the first six months of the new year all of Haydn's piano sonatas are to be broadcast in the Third Programme. Tonight H. C. Robbins Landon discusses the growth of Haydn's keyboard style during the fifty years covered by the sonatas.
The illustrations, specially recorded by Charles Spinks , include the first performance in modern times of a newly discovered sonata movement and a fragment of the lost D major piano sonata.

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.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
