: Mr. TREVOR CLARKE: How It's Done : How Money is Made at the Mint'

EVERYBODY is interested to know how common objects that wo handle every day are made, and everyone is interested in money, so nothing excites popular curiosity more than the working of the Mint. And there is no danger of being disappointed, for the interior of the Mint is full of wonders to which its grim and barrack-like exterior gives no clue. No machines ever made are more nearly human than tlwse that count, test and sort our money before it goes out to the banks. In every way, Mr. Trevor Clarke has got a fascinating story to tell.

: Greig's Songs

Sung by Isabel I'Anson
Solveig's Song; Margaret's Cradle Song; In the Boat (Im Kahne); Eros (Benzon)

Peer Gynt, in Ibsen's famous play, has wasted his whole life, wandering over the earth, having all kinds of fantastic experiences, but never doing anything very useful, bent only on the glorification of Self.
Once he has a vision.
He sees Solveig, who loves him, sitting spinning outside the old hut he built long ago for himself and her. She is now a middle-aged woman, but still fair-haired and comely, and as she spins she thinks of Peer and sings 'Thou wilt return some day and find me waiting.' This is known as Solveig's Song.
In the second song Margaret, watching over her baby boy Haakon, weaves sweet fancies about him, and prays God to shield him from all harm. '
In Eros, the poet, in declamatory style, calls on the 'frosty cold hearts of the North,' who 'seek roses when past is the day,' to tarry not, but 'go forth to love's happy meeting,' for 'that is the only true greatest earthly joy to be found!'


Singer: Isabel I'Anson

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.
