A MONGST. all the standardization and uni-
A. formity and mass production that distinguish modern life, people often crave for the more homely, more individual products of a generation or two ago. One instance of this reaction was the success of Mrs. Heals last talk on how to make the old-fashioned sweets, and many hundreds of recipes were sent out to listeners who wanted to make them for themselves. There will, therefore, be a large and enthusiastic audience for her second talk this afternoon.

Modern French Pianoforte Music
Played by Mrs. Norman O'Neill
Although he had a very large and varied output, Saint-Saens is known to us largely by two classes of work - Opera and Orchestral music. In his Pianoforte music we find some of his most graceful writing - racy, resourceful, amiable and unceasingly fluent, with now and then a clear trace of his classical leanings.
Upon Gabriel Faure, who died in 1924, in his eightieth year, a great many official distinctions were conferred, including the rare one of a 'National Homage' at the Sorbonne in 1922, when he was elected to the highest class in the Legion of Honour. Considering that ho produced a great quantity (over 120 works) of charming music, eclectic and urbane, typical of the best qualities in French music of his day, it is somewhat surprising that comparatively little of it is commonly played here.

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.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
