: Prof. WINIFRED CULLIS: 'Health and Commonsense- III, Breathing '

IN the first two of her series of talks Professor
Cullis dealt with the important question of what to eat and drink. She now proceeds to the equally fundamental matter of breathing. How many of us breathe healthily ? Of course, in many of our English industrial towns we cannot hope to breathe the right things-the air is a compound of soot and chemicals from factory chimneys ; but at least we can breathe the right way, and that is what Professor Cullis will tell us this afternoon how to do.

: BRAHMS

Played by LAFFITTE
Intermezzo in A (Op. 118, No. 2)
Capriccio in D Minor (from Op. 116)
THE A Major Intermezzo is a capital example of Brahms' sentiment, that never drops into sentimentality. Its tender, caressing phrases show him in his happiest mood. The emotion is restrained, hut surely felt.
Op. 116 contains six pieces under the general title of ' Fantasies,' of which two (NQs. I and 7) are Capriccios in D Minor. One of these is marked to be played 'very fast and with energy,' and the other 'quick, agitated.'

: Prof. F. E. WEiss, F.R.S., 'Plant Communities-III, In Hedgerows.' S.B. from Manchester

THIS is the third of Professor Weiss's talks, in which he tells of the way in which plants adopt themselves to their neighbours in the plant community. In tho hedgerows, for instance, with which he will deal today, the competition for light causes many of the smaller kinds to develop a twining habit, and they climb up on their taller rivals in order to reach the life-giving rays of the sun.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
