: ORGAN RECITAL

Relayed from St. Michael's, Cornhill

: Prof. C. Elliot Smith: The Movements of Living Creatures

In the last of his series of talks Professor Elliot Smith will discuss the distinctive features of human beings, their infinitely greater aptitude, in comparison with other living creatures, for learning new kinds of skilled actions to meet the varied circumstances that arise in every individual's daily experience. Man's upright posture, his manual dexterity, the ability to speak, and all the varied powers of intelligence that result from learning by the experience of doing things and talking about them, can be attributed in the last resort to the high development of his control of his movements.

STUDIES OF TRANSNCENDENTAL EXECUTIO
Played by EDWARD MITCHELL
Carillon
MR. MITCHELL'S name has for some years been particularly associated with the performance of Russian music. He has done much to make known the Pianoforte works of Scriabin, Medtner, and other of the modern Russians. He is a Professor of the Royal College of Music.
Liaponnov (1859-1924) may be regarded as almost the lost of the band of Russian composers who created 'nationalist' music on the basis of folk-song and legend. Liapounov himself made some tine collections of folk-song.
Ho was a pupil of Liszt, and dedicated 'to the venerated memory 'of his master the set of twelve remarkable Studies, most of which we to hear this week. These are much more than difficult problems in technique; they cover a wide emotional range, and contain some very beautiful and appealing music. Tonight Mr. Mitchell plays the third Study of the set-Carillon (Bells).

: Mr. ROBERT GRAVES : ' LAWRENCE of ARABIA '

No book pubtished in this century has a more remarkable record than that in which
Major Lawrence tells the romantic story of the war in Arabia and the adventurous part that he himself played in it. The original edition, called ' The Seven Pillars of Wisdom,' was published at the price of £30 a copy: but the book about which Mr. Robert Graves will talk tonight is the comparatively cheap edition recently issued under the title of ' Revolt in the Desert,' which is itself one of the most valuable and interesting contributions to the literature of Arabia and of the war. Mr. Graves, the. poet and literary critic, is a personal friend of Major Lawrence.

: 'MR. SAMPSON'

A Play in One Act by CHARLES LEE
Characters :
(Two Maiden Sisters)
Scene: The kitchen of a cottage on a moor. land road in the West Country. Produced by C. B. PURDOM fpHTS is the actual production that was awarded the prize—by Miss Cathleen Nesbitt ,
Mr. John Drinkwater , and Mr. W. A. Darlington— in the finals of the British Drama League's National Competition, held in the New Theatre, London, in February this year. This competition was planned in response to an invitation from America for a British team to take part in the New York Little Theatre Tournament which takes place every year, and in which, last year, the Huddersfield Thespians won a prize. This year's competition was very highly organized, and the Welwyn Garden City Theatre Society, who are to broadcast tonight, won the right to represent Great Britain in a final contest in which the six teams who had won their regional championships took part. This production may, therefore, fairly be taken as representing the best work now being done on the British amateur stage.

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.
