: Professor T. E. G. GREGORY, Currency Problems '

THERE was a time when problems of currency seemed remote enough from the average man-an abstract puzzle for the economists and financial experts to solve. But the debacle of European currencies after the war, and the scourge of inflation, when money lost its value overnight, made everyone realize how important currency policy was in the everyday life of the modern man. Everyone was in some measure affected by the complicated process of return to a gold standard, which, with all its intricacies of deflation and devaluation, Professor Gregory will explain in this evening's talk. He will go on to discuss the future of the gold Standard and the probable future value of gold.

: A LIGHT ORCHESTRAL CONCERT

JOHN ARMSTRONG (Tenor)
The WIRELESS ORCHESTRA
(Leader, S. KNEALE KELLEY )
Conducted by JOHN ANSELL
RICHARD WALTHEW (born 1872) is perhaps best known by his conductorship of the orchestra at the South Place Sunday Concerts, where much of his highly -appreciated chamber music has been played. He had early success with his Cantata, The Pied Piper (1893), which has since been widely sung, and his Pianoforte Concerto (1894). He is Professor of Music at Queen's College, and was for a time Conductor of the University of London Musical Society, and of the Opera Class at the Guildhall School of Music.
His compositions, besides chamber music, include a Pianoforte Concerto, Variations for Orchestra, two Operettas, several Cantatas, many songs, and part-songs.
WRITING in 1870, Tennyson told how
Sullivan had asked him to write a little song-cycle, German fashion, for him to exercise his art upon.' The poet adds: ' I dressed up for him, partly in the old style, a puppet, whose almost only merit is, perhaps, that it can dance to Sullivan's instrument.'
Under the figure of ' The Wrens,' the poet tells in a dozen little songs a simple episode of a lover's longing and his mistress's absence. He records the passing of lonely Winter, and of Spring with its songs of love in Nature. Then he summons up courage and sends her a letter, asking the old, old question. After an anxious interval, the answer comes-and it is the right one. Then in an ecstasy of joy he puts another question-' When is it to be ? ' and the cycle ends with a happy song of love's fulfilment.
DR. LYON, a musician largely self-taught, and long prominent in the musical life of the North of England, has composed a great many works-four Operas, several ' Melomimes,' Suites for Orchestra, chamber music, etc.
His Opera, The Palace of Cards, is his
Op. 56. From it we are to hear four pieces: (1) The Vision; (2) The Dance of Patience ; (3) Woodland Scene ; (4) Dance, of Firefly and the Dragonflies.

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.
