Nature Study
' Round the Countryside-7,
Summer Butterflies '
ERIC PARKER
By June most of our summer butterflies are to be found on the wing. This afternoon Mr. Erie Parker will describe the various species that are to be seen in a walk through gardens, fields, and woods, both the native English butterflies, such as the Fritillaries, and the migrants that come from abroad, such as the Red Admiral and the Painted Lady. He will also speak of the curious life history of the Large Blue, the caterpillar of which spends part of its life in ants' nests under the ground.

ORCHESTRA

THE NOVAYA DEREVINIA Gipsies,
Visitors and Guests played by VERA LARINA , BORIS RANEVSKY , and GILBERT RUMBOLD
Produced by A. W. HANSON
This is the second broadcast of the BBC's Russian production, The Red Sarafan. It is produced by A. W. Hanson , of ' In Town Tonight' fame, and is given under the direction of Captain V. Vivien , Marquis de Chateaubrun, who also acts as compere.
Captain Vivien held a commission in the Imperial Grenadier Guards, and escaped from Russia after the Revolution. He was attached to the Russian Embassy in London in 1920, and since then he has organised ex-officers' balalaika orchestras and choirs, and entertainments reminiscent of pre-war Russia. Emilio Colombo, who conducts the Red Sarafan orchestra, was Court violinist to the Czar.
The idea of The Red Sarafan is to recreate the atmosphere of one of the cafes that flourished on the Isles of the Neva in Tsarist days, with Russian music, Russian singers, and Russian artists throughout. Further broadcasts will be given at intervals of three weeks or a month.

: Freedom-12 GEORGE BERNARD SHAW

' He who confuses political liberty with freedom and political equality with similarity has never thought for five minutes about either ', says ' John Tanner ' in the Revolutionist's Handbook and Pocket Companion appended to Man and Superman. ' Nothing can be unconditional ; consequently, nothing can be free.' Again: Liberty means responsibility. That is why most men dread it.'
Man and Superman was written thirty-two years ago. But Mr. Shaw has recanted few of the fundamental articles of his creed. He has never cherished any illusions about democracy ; his admiration for certain European dictators, or for his own masterful King Magnus in The Apple
Cart, betokens no fresh development in his views. He himself has certainly never confused political liberty with freedom.
But Shaw has always been the deadliest of sharpshooters in the fight for true freedom, and listeners may confidently look forward to some brilliant marksmanship tonight.

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.
