THE Festival of Youth has been organized by the League of Nations Union to show the part young men and women can play in international friendship. It will be held at the Crystal Palace on Saturday this week, when the day will be filled with celebrations, competitions, sporting and otherwise, choir-singing, and so forth, lasting from 10.30 in the morning till 10.15 at night, and including groups of many nationalities.

: BEETHOVEN SONATAS

Played by JOHN PETRIE DUNN
Sonata in E (Op. 109), Last Movement
THIS, marked ' Slowly, in a singing style, expressively,' is a set of six clearly-marked Variations on a tender Tune. The First varies the Tune but little; the Second is light (twelve notes to a bar) ; the Third, a lively minor one, keeps the left hand moving all the time ; the Fourth changes to three-time with three to a bar, and gives us solider, chordal harmony ; the Fifth has flowing internal parts, in the ' contrapuntal ' (= weaving) style ; the Sixth has many trills and rapid arpeggios. The original Tune is simply repeated as a Coda.

: Prof. LASCELLES ABERCROMBIE, Victorian Poetry—What is Victorianism ? ' S.B. from Leeds

THIS talk begins what promises to be a most interesting series, in which a distinguished poet and critic of poetry will discuss the work of men who were overrated in their own time' and are in danger of being underrated in ours. Professor Lascelles Aber
' crombie is not himself a Victorian, but an-essentially modem poet. He was Lecturer in Poetry at Liverpool University from 1919 to 1922, when he accepted the Chair of English Literature at Leeds. Since then he has published three notable books on ' The Theory, of Poetry,' ' The Idea of Great Poetry,' and ' Romanticism.'

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.
