: 'THE CHILD'S WORLD '—X

Dr. H. C. T. LANGDON , O.B.E. : ' Can Colds be
Prevented ? '
ONE is apt:to think that Preventive Medicine is mainly concerned with serious diseases, and that little progress is being made in the prevention of such minor ills of life as toothache, colds, etc. In this talk Dr. Langdon tries to explain the causes of the common cold and the nature of common-sense measures for its prevention. Next week the ways in which surgery can
' be of help to children will be expounded by Dr. Laetitia Fairfield.

THE CITY OF BIRMINGHAM ORCHESTRA
Conducted by LESLIE HEWARD
DURING the world-war King Albert of Belgium, like several of the great people involved in it, compiled an album of pictures, music, verse, and stories, which was sold for the benefit of war charities. Distinguished people in most of the allied countries lent their aid, and this Carillon was contributed by Sir Edward Elgar. It was composed as music to accompany the recitation of a poem by Emile Cammaerts -Sing, Belgians, sing—and had a Prelude and interludes between tho verses. The music, not only those parts which were originally meant to be heard without a speaking voice, is so full of dignity and power that it long ago had to be specially arranged for performance apart from the poem : in that form it is much better known than if it had remained true to its first purpose, ranking among the best-beloved of Elgar's shorter orchestral pieces. But its performance this week has a special significance when we recall the occasion which inspired it. i

: ' Can Democracy Survive ?'—VII

The Rt. Hon. LORD EUSTACE PERCY, M.P.:
' The Nineteenth-Century Social Ideals '
THIS evening Lord Eustace Percy takes over the reins of the political series from
Mr. Leonard Woolf. Lord Eustace Percy , who is a younger son of the seventh Duke of Northumberland, was formerly in the Diplomatic Service. In 1921 he entered Parliament as the Conservative member for Hastings, and in 1924 became President of the Board of Education. In this talk he opens his subject by considering the nineteenth-century conception of society, which was that of a co-operative society for the accumulation of wealth. Has our recent experience confirmed or discredited this conception ? At all events, the impetus of this industrial society has slowed down since the beginning of the century. Two of the main factors in its success-an increasing birth-rate and the creation of new markets-now no longer exist, and there is a pressure of competition from new industrial "nations.

: Operatic Programme

MIRIAM LICETTE (Soprano)
ARTHUR Cox (Tenor)
The B.B.C. LIGHT ORCHESTRA
Conducted by PERCY PITT
THIS recitative and aria are sung near the beginning of Aida by Rhadames, the Egyptian soldier. The priests are taking counsel of their gods, to learn who should be chosen to lead the army against the ancient enemy, the Ethiopians. In the recitative, Rhadames voices the hope that the choice may fall on him, 'and that he may return victorious, to lay his spoils and honours at Aida's feet. Then he breaks off into an ecstatic love-song in her praise' Heavenly Aida, beauty resplendent.' He does not yet know that she is a royal princess-daughter of the King of the Ethiopians, against whom he hopes to march. He knows only that she is a captive, slave of the Egyptian princess, Amneris, and he loves her devotedly.
The air is a first favourite among Verdi's songs for tenor ; it demands fine singing, but, in the hands of an artist who knows his job, never fails of its thrilling effect.
THE Countess, in Mozart's opera Figaro, has grave doubts of her Count's fidelity, and schemes with her maid, Susanna, to find him out by a little plot of disguises and changed costumes. In the recitative before the aria she gives vent to her doubts of the propriety of such a scheme, and then, in the aria, laments the happy days when she was sure that his devotion was wholly her own.

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.
