: Mr. J. H. DRIBERG : ' The Proper Study of Mankind\ An Introduction to Anthropology '

THE world today contains many different types and stages of human culture coexisting side by side—from the industrial civilization of London and New York to the primitive societies of Central Africa and the tribal communities of the Pacific islands. One of the greatest of modern problems lies in the interact ion of these different civilizations and cultures, particularly in the reactions set up by the incursion of Western ideas into the lives of primitive peoples. In the last of his series of talks Mr. Driberg will discusa this problem, with all its implications of good and evil on both sides.

: Miss ANN Spice : ' A Bookshelf of Old Favourites : " Tcss of the D'Urbevilles," by Thomas Hardy '

IN this series of talks Miss Ann Spice has discussed many old favourites, some of them still favourites, some now almost unknown. This afternoon she will close her present series with one of the greatest novels of the last century, and one that has not yet reached, and now probably will never roach, that stage of neglect and oblivion from which so few novels successful in their own time escape.

: Sir WILLIAM LAWRENCE : ' A Garden in a Window Box'

To make a desert of bricks and mortar bloom like a Garden of Eden—that is the great object of the National Gardens 'Guild; an object not so very hard to achieve, as those will realize who remember the transformation scene in Charlie Chaplin 's film, The Kid. That transformation was effected simply by the use of flowers, and, with window-boxes, as the yearly competitions of the Guild have shown, a drab and dreary house or street may be turned into a delight to the eye. This evening's talk on window-boxes is to be given by Sir William Lawrence , who, as Treasurer of the Royal Horticultural Society, speaks with the highest possible authority on everything relating to flowers.

BACH'S SONATAS FOR VIOLA DA GAMBA AND
'CEMBALO
Played by HOWARD BLISS (Violoncello) and GORDON BRYAN (Pianoforte)
Sonata No. I in G, Last two Movements
Bach's Chamber Concerto, No. 11, in B Flat,
First Movement, played by CoRDON BRYAN
THE second half of the Sonata in G includes a very short and singularly beautiful Slow
Movement, that shows us the imaginative romanticism of Bach, and a final Fugue, bold, bright and crisp, splendidly built up at considerable length.
The other work of which we are to hear »
Movement is Bach's arrangement for Keyboard of a Violin Concerto written by a young composer.! Duke Johann Ernst of Weimar, in whose bond; Bach, as a young man, had played, and who. became one of his friends. The Duke died before he was nineteen. Partly for his own instruction, and partly for pleasure, Bach transcribed some sixteen such Concertos by various composers, several of them by his great contemporary Vivaldi, the famous violinist-composer. He uses the music very freely, altering and enriching it notably...
We are to hear now the energetic, downright
First Movement of the Concerto that Bach made from Duke Johann's work.

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.
