: RHODA POWER: 'Boys and Girls of the Middle Ages-VII, The Little Pilgrims '

PILGRIMAGES were a great feature of mediæval life. The most earnest pilgrims abandoned their homes and set off on foot for Jerusalem or Rome—journeys that might take years ; but all sorts of people went on the shorter pilgrimages, to Canterbury, for instance, and the English shrines. In this talk Miss Rhoda Power will describe two typical pilgrimages, one to Canterbury and one across the sea.

It is an early morning in spring, with a chill grey light shining through the window of an upstairs room in a miner's cottage. The apartment is furnished as a bed-sitting-room and is occupied by Charles Raynor , who, at the moment, is dressing behind a screen. Jenny brings in his breakfast.

: Dr. Agnes Savill: Music for the Un-musical

Some people are unmusical, and are even proud of it. Any who are should listen to this talk by Dr. Savill, who, in her book "Music, Health and Character," describes her own discovery of music, when she had come to regard herself as a person totally unmusical and bored by all concerts.

(Contemporary Composers)
Several of the composers who are represented in this concert arc fairly well known to us by now-Stravinsky and Honegger in particular. The latter was formerly spoken of as a member of the 'Group of Six' formed in 1918, his five friends being Darius Milhaud, Georges Auric, Louis Duroy, Francis Poulenc and Germaine Taillefere. The only bond between them was that of a common aspiration towards new ways of musical expression. Their aims and achievements differed considerably. The youngest are Auric and Poulenc, who were born in 1899, and the oldest is Durey, born eleven years earlier.
Several of them owe something to Stravinsky (born 1882), of whose work we have had several examples recently. Charles Koechlin is of an earlier generation. Born in 1867, he began a mathematical career, and only entered the Paris Conservatoire when he was twenty-three. He is of a more retiring disposition than the 'Six,' and his music has not until recently been at all well known.

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.
