EMELIE WALLER
IT is GOOD NEWS for housewives that this series is to go on, at the request of so many of them, through the spring and summer. The quality of cooking, like that of mercy, blesses her that gives and those that take. The woman who can cook is mistress of a happy home, and mother of a healthy family. So important a job needs all the wit that woman can bring to it. Higher education should praise, but not pity the housewife.
In this morning's talk Emelie Waller is to discuss an art and practice that unhappily has died out in so many parts of England. It used to be a town-dweller's joy, when on holiday in the country, to see home-made bread on the table. Light and luscious, delicious of flavour, inviting all to eat it.
Signs are evident that a renaissance of the making of home-made bread is coming. Women who have experimented find that it can be effectively baked in the town-dweller's gas oven. And this morning Emelie Waller is to give hints to listeners.
Her broadcast next Tuesday will be, in a way, a sequel : Fancy Breads.

Relayed from The Pavilion, Torquay THIS ARIA is sung by Leonora, the heroine of the opera, towards the end of the last act. Her lover, Alvaro, has been challenged to a fight to the death by her brother, Carlo, who seeks to revenge the death of his and Leonora's father. The unhappy Leonora, torn between her love for Alvaro and her family ties, implores Heaven to grant her the peace of death. Her prayer is granted ; by the end of the act, all are dead. Alvaro mortally wounds Carlo ; Carlo stabs his sister, who dies immediately, and Alvaro, in despair, throws himself from a cliff into the sea. Thus, this most gory of operas comes to a logical close; nobody is left alive to sing another note.

: 'The Magnificent Charlatan'

CHRISTOPHER COLUMBUS was born at Genoa during the middle of the fifteenth century and died in 1506. He is said to have gone to sea when fourteen years of age, but five years later he was engaged in the family business of weaving. During the next fourteen years he gradually conceived the idea of an extended voyage of exploration to Asia, and after considerable opposition finally secured the backing of Queen Isabella of Castile.
Columbus set forth on his first voyage on August 3, 1492, returning after six months, having discovered Cuba and several of the islands of the West Indies. On September 24 he embarked on his second voyage to the West Indies; on May 30, 1498, began his third voyage, during which he landed in South America ; and on May 9, 1502, he set out on his last great voyage to ' the New World '.
Cecil Lewis 's The Magnificent Charlatan is the ' history of the fortunate Christopher Columbus who, in 1492, set sail for Asia and discovered America'. Says the First Speaker: ' Destiny and Chance, Fate and Providence: these invoke and murder all Adventurers. This is our theme '.
This programme will be repeated by all Regionals except West on Thursday night

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.
