: Fashionable Crazes 'Food'

AMBROSE HEATH
Fashionable crazes in food have mostly taken a dietetic form, but this morning Ambrose Heath , the well-known cookery expert, will tell listeners something about food crazes of another kind. As those who heard him in ' Men Talking ' will know, he has a wide knowledge of the history of food, and he will look back to the Middle Ages, when all sorts of curious dishes were the rage, and show how in later centuries some of the commonplace dishes of today had their origin in the fashion of the moment. He will also explain why dinner in a cottage is luncheon in a wealthier home, and how our daily meal-times have also been the sport of fashion.

Choral with Variations .... John Moren
During the sixteenth century Spanish organ music was much in advance of that of Germany. In view of the fact that the Netherlands were under Spanish rule, there was a considerable interchange of artistic ideas, with the result that the music of Spain and Portugal was enriched by the influence of the Netherland school of composition, which was then at its greatest. This afternoon's programme consists of pieces by outstanding Spanish and Portuguese composers of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.

: Many Inventions-2

H. STAFFORD HATFIELD , Ph.D.
Inventions go on, and no one is free from their influence. In this series Dr. Hatfield is keeping listeners in touch with what is going on in the inventor's world, and what is most concerning the leaders of industrial progress today. He is describing in simple language the technical improvements of all kind that are taking place, how they arose, and what obstacles had to be overcome, and he will discuss their probable influence in the future. From time to time he will bring to the microphone those who are actively engaged in the work, and he will mention the technical journals and so forth where particular subjects are being dealt with.

: Galsworthy's Plays—I

John Galsworthy
His Life and Work
ERIC GILLETT
In this evening's introductory talk Eric Gillett will discuss the life and work of John Galsworthy , the dramatist, whose sense of pity extended to all misfits and failures, and of whom it has been said that he blamed the system invariably rather than the man. In the subsequent eleven talks Eric Gillett will discuss Galsworthy's philosophy of life as seen through his plays.
In dignity and sincerity and human sympathy he was without a rival as a dramatist, and he had few superiors as a craftsman of plays. Every play from his pen dealt with some social problem. They are all worth reading, and they are all worth seeing, and they are all worth hearing about. Members of discussion groups will find it worth while to make a start with The Silver Box, which is to be the basis of Eric Gillett 's talk next Monday.

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 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 find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

This is a historical record of both 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.
