Mr. A. D. LINDSAY
N this series of talks the Master of Balliol will show the relation of that rather remote, though fundamental science, philosophy, to the things that most of us know more about. He will deal with the claims to exclusive importance of the economic, the political and the moral scale of values, and the confusion that arises from failure to settle these rival claims. His intro. ductory talk today will be particularly useful to those who have had no philosophical training themselves.

Hungarian Folk Songs .......... arr. Korbay My heart and I
Shepherd, see thy horse's foaming mane The Outcast
Look into my eye, come near Come in, my rose
Rosebud, to the fields art going ?
Pretty maid, how could you do so Long ago, when I was still free
HUNGARIAN folk songs contain characteristic idioms of the Magyars, the dominant race of Hungary, and also of the gipsies. The Magyar rhythms contain much syncopation, and often go in groups of three or six bars, instead of the usual four. A jerky figure, something like the Scottish ' snap ' (a beat made of a short note followed by a'longer one), is often to be heard. The gipsies added all sorts of ornamentation to the folk-tunes—which is natural enough when we remember their Oriental origin, and the love of Eastern peoples for decoration and gay colours.
There must be many people in London who remember seeing or hearing Francis Korbay , a Hungarian singer and pianist (a godson of Liszt) who about twenty-five years ago was a professor at our Royal Academy of Music, and who died in London in 1913. 'He is remembered as an editor of Hungarian folk-songs and a writer of songs of similar character.

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.
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.
