' Bird Protection : 2-Eggs'
ERIC PARKER
BECAUSE birds' eggs are in themselves lovely things, and there is a thrill in finding them, and their variety of colouring makes them something to be coveted like a Newfoundland postage stamp ; above all, because they are forbidden, they are, and must always be, a temptation to a boy or girl.
But one has only to point out that birds' nesting is cruel ; that if they take an egg they are depriving a mother of her child and taking a life, to win the best boys and girls over to the side of the birds.
They have enough enemies-cats, weasels, marauders of their own species like cuckoos and crows ; they have storms to contend with; they have their own misguided instinct in building nests in places like old ventilators and chimneys, and even a goods truck which, lying in a siding in the south, may carry the nest and eggs to the north of England.
But, above all, what will appeal most to the boy and girl is the bravery of the mother bird who will sit close on her eggs, indifferent to approaching danger. If there is one thing lovelier than the hedge-sparrow's sky-blue eggs in their cup of moss and feathers, it is the courage of the little mother bird, so alert but steadfast, as she sits on her nest almost begging you with her bright eyes to leave her alone.

A BARBER in the period of this opera was a much more important person than he is now, and for all sorts of happenings in the city he was a kind of agent or impresario. People met at the barber's ; if there was anything to be done the barber was the man to see that it got done; he dispensed advice, a little law, a little physic, a little bit of everything useful ; a most important man, and Figaro, who in this song calls himself ' the city's factotum ', is not claiming more than he is entitled to claim.
THE DANCE OF THE TUMBLERS is taken from the opera The Snozvmaiden. Festival is at its height in the realm of the Snowmaidens. It is the first day of Spring, and bridal pairs have assembled to receive the King's blessing. Tumblers are engaged to amuse them.

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.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
