: Mr. J. M. KEYNES: 'The Allied War Debts to the U.S.A.'

ENDLESS argument and controversy, and no small amount of acrimony, have been engendered on both sides of the Atlantic by the complicated question of Allied war debts to the United States. All the more reason, therefore, why listeners who wish to be well informed about world problems should welcome this talk (the first of a series on ' Finance in the Modern World '). in which the thorniest of all financial problems will be authoritatively discussed by one of the most brilliant living economists, the author of ' The Economic Consequences of the Peace.'

: A MILITARY BAND CONCERT

THE WIRELESS MILITARY BAND, conducted by B. WALTON O'DONNELL
WINIFRED DAvis (Mezzo-Soprano)
IN 1880 the University of Breslau made Brahms a Doctor of Philosophy, and this was a graceful recognition of the honour. The title may sound rather solemn, but the Overture is one of the gayest pieces of music Brahms wrote. It was originally scored for Full Orchestra, with plenty of ' percussion '—Kettle Drums, Big
Drum, Cymbals, and Triangle. Today we have it in an arrangement for
Military Band.
The chief themes are all well-known German students' songs. Some of them are familiar also to us in England.
There are four such popular tunes in the Overture. It starts with an original theme, come followed by another Tune (also Brahms's own and a return of the melody. This is worked up a little, and then a few bars of soft music introduce the First Main Tune, rather like a hymn tune, played by Trumpets. This is known n-The Stately Hoiise.
The next Tune is a livelier one-The Father of his Country.
The Third Tune is the Freshman's Song (dating from the early eighteenth century), which is humorously blurted out. The brass-and-reei chorus takes it up, the instruments joining ii in turn, as a scattered company of student-coming home from a jollification might do.
The last Tune to be used is Gaudeamus igitur, known to University students the world over. which brings the 'Overture to a high-spirited close.
THE ‘ Phantasy ' The Three Bears is a musical presentation of the well-known tale about the little girl and her strange adventure. We have no difficulty in interpreting the motif heard at the start—‘ Who's been sitting in my chair ? ' Goldilocks gets up (at five o'clock, as we hear), and runs off to the bears' house. Finding it empty, she peeps about and amuses herself awhile, then falls asleep. The bears arrive (each suggested by an appropriate instrument), and chase her away. Goldilocks runs home to Granny and tells her of the exciting adventure.

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.
