Regional Geography
' Peoples of the World '—4
'Hunters and Fishers of Tierra del
Fuego'
JEAN HAMILTON
Last week you heard about the central Andes ; today you are to hear about the ' drowned ' end of this almost interminable mountain range that disappears under the Magellan Strait to reappear under the name of Tierra del Fuego, about the size of Scotland, one-third of it consisting of smaller islands, inhabited by nomadic hunters and fishers -Alacaloof and Yaghan Indians.
Life for them is an incessant battle against starvation. To obtain food they venture naked in small canoes into tremendous seas. This evening Jean Hamilton is to tell you something of their lives ; of the coasts that receive the full force of the Antarctic gales ; of storms so fierce that even these fearless seamen are unable to live in them, and their larders are in consequence empty.
Jean Hamilton will describe the fishing methods of these Canoe Indians, and the hunting methods of the Foot Indians who inhabit the interior. And she will say something of the white settlers who occupy the dry, grassy plains of the south-east.

' Strange Guests of the Trees'
RICHARD MORSE
One of the most interesting ways of thinking of a tree is to regard it as a host that entertains a large number of guests There is not one of our trees that lives all by itself. Roots, trunk, branches, leaves, flowers and fruit may all provide food and shelter for hordes of insects and other visitors.
But probably the strangest of all the guests of the trees are those that cause the peculiar growths known as galls. The oak-apple is a familiar example, but there are scores of others equally abundant and equally mysterious.
This afternoon Mr. Richard Morse will describe some of these strange growths, and will show what fascinating stories lie hidden behind their origin and their development.

QUARTET
Fantasia Matthew Locke (1630-1677), transcribed and edited by Andre Mangeot Fancy
John Ward , transcribed and edited by Andre Mangeot
The only chamber music of Locke's published in his lifetime was the ' Little Consort of three parts ' (consisting of ten trio suites for violins and viols). It appeared in 1656. His more important ' Consort of ffoure Parts ', from which this ' Fantasia ' is taken, bears no date and was published only a few years ago. It consists of six suites-composed of ' fantasia ', 'courante ', ' ayre ' and saraband '-scored for treble violin and alto, tenor and bass viols.
' Its importance lies in the fact that here Locke made a unique attempt to write the classical English form of the fantasia, with the modern one of the suite ', comments Dr. Colles. ' Roger North spoke of these fantasias as the last of their kind, but a truer view would regard them as a pioneer attempt to extend the fantasia in the direction of the grouped movements which subsequently became the basis of the sonata.'
Very little is known of John Ward , fine composer though he was, beyond the fact that in 1613 he published hi, ' First Set of English Madrigals, apt both for Viols and Voyces ', and dedicatedthe work, ' To the Honorable Gentleman, and my very good Maister, Sir Henry Fanshawe , Knight'. Ward's best work was done in the madrigal field, but he also wrote church musio fantasias for viols, and pieces for the virginals. His most attractive string compositions are the ' Fancies' for 4, 5 and 6 viols, which remained in Ynanuscript in the library of Christ Church, Oxford, unknown for three centuries. The piece to be played thi... afternoon is a first-rate example of Ward's art.

' Public Opinion'
H. A. MESS , Ph.D.
This evening Dr. H. A. Mess is to discuss Pubjic Opinion as a power influencing our behaviour. What is public opinion ? He will show how it sustains institutions, and produces willing acceptance of law. He will point out that its code is not always coincident with those of religion and law. It can sometimes reach where law cannot reach ; and its penalties may be very severe... He will discuss diseases of public opinion, and the case of freedom of speech and Press.
This series is being hailed by many listeners as one of the most interesting that has yet been given for Discussion Groups.

: 'Badger's Green'

A Comedy
By R. C. SHERRIFF
The sensational success of Mr. Sherriff's first play, Journey's End, inevitably tempered the appreciation of those who went to the Prince of Wales Theatre in June, 1930, hoping to see a second Journey's End, and found themselves confronted instead with this gay comedy of village cricket and village politics. That is why Badger's Green has not yet had the stage history it deserves. The theatre-going public of 1930 found it difficult to judge the play on its own merits and to forgive it for not being Journey's End.
After the lapse of five years, and the recession of the craze for war plays and war books, this radio revival should help to give Badger's Green its rightful place in the sun-the sun of an English summer, for preference. Listeners will find that the play is admirably suited for broadcasting, for the story is easy to follow, the dialogue sparkles with humour, and the characters are all sharply defined and strongly contrasted, yet as true to life as our next-door neighbours. If you do not know the Major, the Doctor, and the hapless Mr. Twigg, meet them this evening on the air : you will find them a sheer delight.
' Badger's Green' was broadcast in the Regional programme last night

: THE KITZBUHEL-TYROLEANS

(By permission of The Hungaria
Restaurant)
There is a genuine bit of the Tyrol, transplanted to London lock, stock and barrel. The members of the Kitzbiihel band make no pretence to be sophisticated man-of-the-worldly artists. They are just six simple unaffected young Tyrolese peasants, fair, athletic, bringing with them a breath of their own enchanted mountain air. At home in "Kitzbiihel, the little resort which recently enjoyed so much publicity during the visit of the Prince of Wales, they play at a café very popular with English and American tourists.
The Kitzbiihelers wear the picturesque national costume, evoking a host of mixed memories and associations-from Andreas Hofer to ' The Constant Nymph ', and their repertoire naturally includes yodelling and an ample supply of folk songs.
This is not their first visit to London, for they came over last year for the Austrian Exhibition, where they attracted the attention of the Queen, the Duchess of York, and other members of the Royal Family.

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.
