ERNEST READ
Ernest Read has five golden rules for his nine-to-eleven-year olds ! ' (i) Be always ready; (2) Listen intelligently and imagine I am speaking to you yourself; (3) Listen actively and do everything you are asked to quickly and joyfully ; (4) Feel the rhythm of every song or phrase, tapping the pulses quietly on your desk ; (5) Hear with your eye ; in other words, at all times follow the tunes and phrases with your eye, whether singing or listening.'

Early Stages in German
Lesson I
A. H. WINTER , assisted by M.-B.
Gilbert
Ever since ' Early Stages in German' was started in 1933, it has been con- ducted by A. H. Winter. He has been lecturer in German at the Polytechnic, Regent Street, London, since 1927, and Professor of German at the Royal Academy of Music since 1932.
As with the French broadcasts, there has been a modification of the German broadcast lessons, the idea being to avoid the danger of boys and girls in the classes merely being passive lis- teners, and to make these lessons on the air even more useful and interesting.
A. H. Winter leads them in the carry- ing out of simple games, gets them to sing songs with him and to take part in 3ther items in the nature of surprises. Moreover, other German speakers- both men and women-are brought to the microphone from time to time so that pupils may grow used to a variety of voices.

The Romance of Steam
(From Glasgow)
Last week a dramatic feature was broadcast from Scotland dealing with the heroic life of Mary Slessor , the missionary, one of a number of bio- graphical programmes that have been given during the last twelve months. This evening, National listeners are to hear another of the same series, the life of James Watt , the famous inventor who was born two hundred years ago.
As Sir Alexander Gibb points out in an article on page 7, James Watt was not the first to harness steam, nor was he inspired by watching his mother's kettle. But listeners will be well com- pensated for any dispelled illusions : they will find an unexpected wealth of romance in Watt's varied life without the inclusion of doubtful facts.

THE NEW LONDON TRIO :
David Wise (violin) ; Norina Semino (violoncello) : John Pauer (pianoforte) Vitezslav Novak (born in Bohemia in 1870), together with Joseph Suk and Janacek, is generally considered one of the leaders of modern Czech music. He was a favourite pupil of Dvorak, but his earlier works show more of the influence of Schumann and Brahms. Later in life Novak drew his inspiration from national sources, and some of his more important works are based on folk tunes. His output is large, and includes operas, symphonic poems, many choral works, songs and chamber music.
He wrote two Piano Trios, of which this, his Op. 27, is the second. It is in one movement, and is marked ' in the style of a ballad '. The music is strongly rhythmical, passionate in character, effectively scored for the three instruments, and is developed from a single theme.

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.
