: TWENTY-FIVE YEARS' WORK FOR PEACE

' The Silver Jubilee of the World Alliance'
The Rev. W. Thompson Elliott ,
Canon of Westminster
The World Alliance was founded on August 1, 1914, at a meeting held at Constance in Switzerland, largely under the inspiration and leadership of Archbishop Soderblom of Sweden, to be a means whereby the Churches' work for peace might be made more effective.
In spite of the ominous date of its birth it has done excellent work in building up international friendship, and so laying the foundations of peace, and giving human content to membership in the universal Church.

Thirty-three Variations on a Waltz of Diabelli, Op. 120 played by Egon Petri (pianoforte)
Beethoven's Thirty-three Variations on a Waltz by Diabelli came into existence in a rather interesting way. Diabelli was not only a well-known composer, but a music publisher too, and he conceived the idea of bringing out a set of Variations on one of his own waltzes Tvhich should be representative of all the best Austrian music of the day. No fewer than fifty-one composers were invited to contribute to it, and while each of the others was content to offer one variation, Beethoven chose to write thirty-three. It was, of course, a form in which he delighted to exercise his tireless imagination.
In these Variations, comments
Ernest Walker , 'we find examples of almost every mood, from the deep brooding mysteriousness of the twentieth variation (one of his greatest pages) to the fantastic delicacy of the tenth or the hammering energy of the twenty-eighth: but indeed the whole long set ranks high among Beethoven's master-pieces

: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

An appeal on behalf of THE FLORENCE NIGHTINGALE HOSPITAL FOR GENTLEWOMEN by Sir SEYMOUR Hicks
Founded in 1850, this hospital for ladies of limited means was organised by Florence Nightingale , who, appealing for it in The Times in 1901, wrote:
' I ask and pray my friends who still remember me not to let this sacred work languish and die for want of a little more money.'
Patients pay two guineas for a cubicle, or four guineas for a private room. There are thirty-eight beds open to all denominations and nationalities.
The income from the patients' fees amounts to less than one half the total expenditure, and hospital expenses are increasing. The balance has to be made up by annual subscriptions and donations.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to Sir Seymour Hicks , [address removed].

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.
