: Mrs. H. A. L. FISHER : What we pay Rates for—III '

TN her third talk Mrs.
Fisher reaches perhaps the crux of the problem tackled in her series, in facing the question, ' Why we pay rates.' She shows that besides the services which rates aid the taxes in supporting. there are also services from which some parts of the country benefit more than others, while others belong rather to the whole country. With regard to such questions as poor-relief m the new conditions of acute local unemployment in certain areas, and road repairing, it is very debatable whether they should be local or national burdens.

SCHUBERT'S SONGS
Sung by HELEN HENSCHEL (Soprnno)
Mignon's Song, 'So lasst mieh scheinen ' (Thus let me seem)
Fischerweise (Fisher's Song) Am Strome (By the stream)
Auf dem Wasser zu singen (To be sung on the water)
THE first, song comes from that incident in Book 8 of Goethe's Wilhelm Meister, in which Mignon dresses tip as an angel, bringing presents for the birthday of two children. She sings of her longing to become the blest spirit she appears to be, and ends :-
Free have I lived from sordid care,
Yet have I known still sharper pain-The weight of age too soon to bear ; Make me for aye a child again !
In Fischerweise the fisherman gaily sings of his life, than which he could wish none better. On the quay he spies a maiden, angling in vain. ' You may as well give up your artful pranks, sly creature.' he thinks, ' 'you won't deceive the fish !

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.
