FIRST GENERAL NEWS BULLETIN
Prof. D. WEBSTER , 'The Present and Past of British Woodlands '
THE woodlands of England have been dwindling steadily since the first records, which show us a densely-wooded Britain in which forests formed as effective a barrier to invasion as mountains did, but there still remain the characteristic English woods, with a great variety of native trees. Professor Webster, as the author of ' Webster's Practical Forestry,' ' London Trees,' and several similar works, is well qualified to discuss this subject, so interesting to both town and country listeners.

The Story told by CECIL LEWIS
THE Book of the Thousand and One Nights
-commonly known to us as ' the Arabian
Nights' '-is tho most famous collection of romances in the literature of the world. Growing up, between the ninth and the thirteenth centuries, from the tales that reached the Arabic through Indian and Persian, it became the story-book of the East, and, though it took long to penetrate to the Western world, its triumph was complete when it arrived. Such stories as ' Aladdin ' and ' Sinbad the Sailor,' which are now part of the common stock from which English children's stories and pantomimes are drawn, are derived originally from the Arabian Nights. On this occasion Mr. Lewis is reading from the translation made for the Casanova Society by Mr. E. Powys Mathers. This rare and exquisite edition is now not often met with, but more readers may have come across the little volume called ' Sung to Shahryar,' in which Mr. Mathers collected some of the loveliest of the songs.

: CHOPIN

Interpreted by SOLOMON
Second Ballad. Followed by Andante Spianato and Polonaise, Op: 22
CHOPIN'S second Ballad, like the first, Is made -of- two elements. ' Here, however, they form a more distinct contrast. It is as if the story were laid in two scenes, one quiet and pastoral, tho other grand and tempestuous, like a storm at sea.
The Andante Spianato (' Tranquilly flowing ')
Movement and the Polonaise (Polish Dance) which follow it were originally written as a work for Piano and Orchestra. The one has been likened to the picture of a calm lake in noontide haze. The other is a bright, showy piece, frankly designed to show off the prowc:n of a skilful Pianist. Chopin was only twenty when he wrote this.

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, and programmes to purchase.

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.
