: Mr. W. H. HINDLE : ' A Balkanic Excursion'

TTNLESS one is exceptionally conversant with the post-war map, one might be hard put to it to say off-hand under what Government Mr. Hindle travelled in Slovenia. As he will show in this talk, Slovenia, which is really part of Jugo-Slavia, is a pleasant land of clean towns, bright colours, hospitable landlords, and cafes where the peasants sit and talk-and talk well— all day.

SOME time during the first half of last century a Miss Ross, of County Deny,
Ireland, heard and noted a very beautiful folk-tune. It had no name, and is presumed to bo very old. But everyone in the British Isles is now familiar with the Londonderry Air,' or the ' Irish Tune from County Dcrry,' which ,in both emotion and build is surely one of the finest folk-tunes any country can show.
VLADIMIR REBIKOV (1866?1920), a dramati.
' cally-ininded Russian, made some notable, if not very far-reaching experiments in harmony, and wrote several interesting works in which he endeavoured to combine miming with music and scenic effects. The piece of his that we are to hear comes from a set of such pieces entitled Dreams, five Melomimiques.' Ho describes melomining as ' a scenic art in which mimicry and instrumental music mingle in one indivisible whole. It differs from the ballet because the dance plays no part in it, and from pantomime pure and simple because in that music plays a part at least equal to that of mimicry. The region of mimicry begins where the word ceases and feeling reigns alone.'
In this piece demons sit, silent and motionless, watching admiringly the dancing of Satan's daughter. It is written oh the notes of the ' whole tone' scale—D Flat, E Flat, F. G, A, B.

: 'TRAVELLERS' TALES ' : Mr. ESCOTT NORTH, 'Among the Blackfeet Indians'

THIS evening's ' ' traveller's tale' is to be told by a well-known lecturer and a vivid personality, who has already broadcast with considerable success. Mr. Eseott North really knows that ' wild and woolly West ' about which we have all heard so much; from the Canadian Rockies down to Mexico ho has travelled, lived, and worked, range-riding, harvesting, broncho-busting, being initiated into blood-brotherhood with the Blackfeet Indians, and generally doing all the things that they do in the wide open spaces where men are men, unless they happen to bo coyotes or greasers or skunks or dudes. Tonight he will describe the Redskins as they really arc today.

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.
