Commander King-Hall, in this morning's talk, is. to speak of the acute problems of the British farmer, and of what is being done to ease them.

: THE SCOTTISH STUDIO ORCHESTRA

BEATRICE HALL (soprano)
Delibes is usually associated with light and tuneful ballet music, but he composed one important and very successful opera—Lakmé. The story is an Eastern one, and Lakme, the heroine, is a Priestess ot Brahma. Her sacred grove is violated by an English soldier, who falls in love with her, but he is seen by Lakme's father, a priest, who swears vengeance. He comes upon the Englishman in the brilliant scene of an Eastern bazaar, and it is there that Lakme sings the Bell Song. The angry priest stabs the young man, and Lakme carries him off to a secret place in the woods to nurse him back to health. There his friends find him and carry him off to duty, gladly though he would remain with his charmer. Lakme eats the fruit of a poisoned tree and dies just as her father finds her.

Nature Study
Round the Countryside
3—'Distribution of Seeds'
C. C. GADDUM
This afternoon Mr. C. C. Gaddum is to tell listeners all about seeds. He will say why Nature has thought it wise to scatter them and then how they are scattered ; by the wind, by animals, by mechanical means. Those blown by the wind are especially adapted for flight : for instance, the wings of the sycamore and the parachute of the dandelion.
Again, most of the edible fruits are scattered by birds, while the goose grass and burdock are carried here and there on the coats of animals. As for mechanical means, a striking example is the common gorse, front which the seeds are catapulted.
Teachers will find it useful to have ready either specimens or drawings of the following : a sycamore seed, a dandelion clock, a gorse pod, and goose grass showing seeds.

Almost entirely self taught, Gerrard Williams writes fluently for orchestra, military band. string quartet, and voice. His Second Quartet is a graceful and pleasing work showing genuine invention and excellent craftsmanship

A Psycho-analytical Approach to Social
Problems
1—The Cost of becoming Civilised
By a MEDICAL PSYCHOLOGIST
Many people feel it necessary to step over cracks in the pavement, others deliberately step on them to prove that they are not compelled to step over them. Is such conduct reasonable ?
How far, in fact, does reason lie, behind our actions or our opinions ? Are there powerful unconscious processes at work ? How far are those in high positions free from applying their own unconscious impulses to the conduct of affairs ? Such matters as these, of increasing interest at the present time, will be discussed 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.
