: Farmhouse Cookery

Mrs. ARTHUR WEBB
This morning Mrs. Arthur Webb is to take another farmhouse she has visited in yet another county, and will tell listeners all she discovered there. The secret of its kitchen, including the dish that the farmer and his family relish most of all. Few know more about cooking than Mrs. Webb or more about farmhouses, for she herself was born in one. She is going round the country calling on typical farms to get material for this series of talks.

DAISY BADGER (pianoforte)
Percy Fletcher was one of those active musicians who do the real work that no:sier people shout about and get the credit for. Fletcher was a clever composer of the best type of popular music, a man of experience in eveiy department of the profession and one who knew every inch of the theatre from the box-office to the stage-door-for years he was musical director of His Majesty's Theatre. Besides the music he composed for the theatre, he produced a quantity of cleverly-written, very tuneful and extremely popular light music. He ranked among the half-dozen or so British musicians who did this sort of thing extremely well.
Isaac Albeniz began his career as an infant prodigy pianist, and throughout his life devoted himself almost entirely to the piano as a composer and a performer. After studying in Madrid, Brussels, and Leipzig, he toured Europe and America with Rubinstein, and at the age of twenty he returned to Spain and settled down as a teacher. After a short time, however, he threw up teaching and divided the remainder of his short life-he was only forty-nine when he died in 1909—between various activities in Paris and London.
He turned his hand to operas, light and serious, but though several of his works enjoyed temporary success, none of them survived. It is by his voluminous works for pianoforte, particularly those which embody the real essence of his own native music, that he will be best remembered. Many of his pieces are dance tunes in the Spanish idiom.

WILLIAM BARRAND (baritone)
Sir John B. McEwen , principal of the Royal Academy of Music, composer, and theoretician, has written fourteen string quartets, of which the ' Biscay ' is one of the most effective and charming. The three movements are fluent and athletic in style, and the harmonic idiom belongs to the Brahms period, seasoned with a little modern decoration to give the melodic ideas an up-to-date dress. Melodically the music is full of invention and the working out of such material carried out with clarity and ingenuity.
The first movement is restless in mood and obviously aims at depicting a lighthouse in rough weather. The slow movement is for the most part tranquil, but works up to a climax of exaltation. The Finale bubbles over with high spirits and nautical humour, thus forming a brilliant conclusion to a very notable work.

: The Village Church-2

Inside the Church: ' Fittings and Ornaments'
E. A. Greening LAMBORN
This evening E. A. Greening Lamborn will discuss the fittings and ornaments of a village church. He describes ancient burials, discusses payments for sweet herbs and spices burnt in the church in olden times on ceremonial occasions, and an old-fashioned way of raising funds for the church before the advent of the modern bazaar. The alc brewed for this purpose in the room above the lych-gate, or in some handy spot, sold readily, to the great joy of the parish.
In many old churches is a fireplace in the wall at the west end of the aisle, where crab apples were roasted to flavour the ale, and churchwardens' accounts included payment for the musician who played for the dances.
Mr. Greening Lamborn examines the church door, and knows at once the date of it; and if you have found crosses scratched on the square stones forming the jambs of the doorway and suspected desecration, he will be quick to disillusion you. To Mr. Greening Lamborn the village church is a place of romance and beauty. He has the power of conjuring up the men and women who worshipped there, who married there, who had their children baptised there, and who were buried there with their children in the old days of England.

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.
