: MINISTRY OF HEALTH TALK : Dr. J. A. GLOVER, ' How to Keep Fit at Fifty '

THE athletic world has seen several instances of freaks who seemed to retain their physical youth" long after the normal span-followers of boxing will remember that ageless phenomenon, the Dixie Kid. All of us cannot expect to be able to fight twenty rounds or row a full course at the age of fifty, but anybody with average health can keep his ordinary, practical fitness till even after that age. In his talk today. Dr. Glover will sketch out the lines on which this can be done.

: MACDOWELL

Played by ETHEL WALKER
The ' Keltic ' Senata Second and Third Movements
IN the. SECOND MOUVEMENT of the ' Keltic '
Sonata MacDowell dwells upon the lovely
Deirdre. He puts at the head of the Movement the direction ' with naive tenderness.' It opens with a slow melody, whose sweeping supporting chords remind us of the harpers of old who sang their ballads to their own accompaniment. The theme is somewhat developed, with rapidly-increasing emotion, until the entry of the Second Main Tune. Ever broader and more dignified becomes the music until, 'stately and sonorous,' the First Tiine returns, to (lie away extremely softly at the end.
In the LAST MOVEMENT, 'very swift and fierce,'
MacDowell suggests the scene of Cuchullin's death after being wounded in battle.

Liszt : Grand Concert Study ' for the two hands, the arms, the shoulders and the liair '
MR. BALLANTINE, the Composer of these
MR parodies, is an American Composer,, n member of the musical staff at the University of Harvard.
Parody in music is not very common. It is more difficult here than in n literary parody to avoid mere imitation of u composer's mannerisms, and to give instead a synthesis of his style, as we get it in J. C. Squire's or Owen Seaman 's parodies. The slightly broader manner of Bret Harte '.s Condensed Novels is perhaps more fitting. The effects must. almost necessarily, be clear-cut and the points quickly made.
In most of the imitations in this piece (which is published by Hawkes) the music and the titles speak for themselves.

: Mr. J. C. STOBART Readings from Four Rugby School Poets

W. S. LANDOR (1775-1864). A. H. CLOUGH (1819―1861), MATTHEW ARNOLD (1822-1888),
RUPERT BROOKE (1887-1915)
ALL the four poets from whose works Mr.
Stobart—who is Director of Education of the B.B.C., and himself an old Rugbeian—Is to read tonight were Rugby men, and it is possible to trace a common quality in their style. All of them possess a certain precision of phrase that may or may not be due to that rigorous training in classical verse-writing which was the foundation of education at Rugby School when Landor went there at the end of the eighteenth century, as in Rupert Brooke 's schooldays in the present century. Listeners will be able to judge for themselves when they have heard the extracts that Mr. Stobart will read.

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.
