Mr. C. LEWIS HIND:
'Six Great Artists. and What They Stand For-Turner '
ENGLISH painting, though full of interest to the connoisetwir, and a source of considerable pride to patriotic Englishmen, is sadly deficient in Old Masters of the first magnitude, worthy to bo compared with those of, for instance, Venice, Florence, or Rome. In Turner (1775-1851), however, wo have a master who can fitly be included in such a series as that which Mr. Lewis Hind is giving, with painters of tho calibre of Titian, Velasquez, and Rembrandt. Somo of his finest works are in the National Gallery, including the superb * Ulysses Deriding Poly. phemus ' and The Fighting Temeraire,' ' The Sun Rising Through Vapour,' and * A Frosty Morning,' all of which may be obtained in the special series of postcards issued in connection with these Talks.

House Heating,
ONE of the interesting minor movements of the past few years is tho revolt against the historic open fire, on account of the trouble and expense that it causes in the house and the pollution of the atmosphere outside. Professor Harker, who is Professor of Heating and Ventilating Engineering at University College, London. will describe tho methods of central heating by which it is now possible to warm a private house more evenly and cleanly than was ever possible with the hearth fire.

: KEYBOARD MUSIC

of the LATE xvii AND EARLY xviii CENTURIES Interpreted by Mrs. NORMAN O'NEILL
OLD ITALIAN Music : IT is doubtful if Galuppi's name would be remembered now had not Browning used him as a peg on which to hang his poem, A
Toccata of Galuppi. This Composer's Comic Operas (in which he collaborated with another and perhaps more famous Italian, Goldoni) were very popular in the eighteenth century, both in Italy and in England.
FROM the work of Frescobaldi (Master of the Music at St. Peter's, Rome, and the most famous Organist of his day) Bach learned a great deal, especially about the art of writing Fugues. This Fugue, written a century before Bach lived, is a perfect example of its kind.
LEO'S full name was Leonardo Oronzo Salvatore de Leo, and we are told that his third
Christian name was given him because, like our Saviour, he camo into the world poor. In spite of this handicap he got on well, and when the great Alessandro Scarlatti died in 1725, Leo was appointed Principal Organist of the Chapel Royal at Naples. He made the best of both worlds of music, sacred and secular, having success with Comic Operas as well as with Church Music.
COMPOSERS, naturally, often'write best for the instruments they play best. Paradies (or Paradisi), a famous player and teacher of the Harpsichord, who lived for many years in London, produced Operas as well as keyboard music, but he is now remembered only by a few of his instrumental pieces. This Toccata (the name originally signified a ' touch ' piece one to show off the performer's agility) is the Last Movement of one of his Sonatas that was published in London.

: The Ceremony of the Keys

A Talk by Mr. Trevor Clark on the Historical Ceremonies at the Tower of London, illustrated at 9.55 by the Ceremony of the Keys relayed from the Tower of London.
Every night for the last six hundred years, the Head Warder of the Tower of London hes made a formal progress round the historic building, performing the ceremony of locking up for the night - a very important one now, when the Crown Jewels are housed there, and even more important in the days when the Tower might at any time contain prisoners of State whose escape might have brought down the reigning dynasty from the throne and plunged the nation into civil war.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
