: Mr. ERIC PARKER: 'Out of Doors from Week to Week-VII, Along the River'

TUNE days by the river-how many English exiles have found in retrospect that their memories of 'the English countryside were most completely embodied in them ? Mr. Eric Parker will describe the living things and the growing things that you may see or hear along an English river-bank in June ; trout and otter and mayfly, willow-herb, comfrey and meadowsweet.

: THE FOUNDATIONS OF MUSIC

BACH SONATAS FOR FLUTE
AND PIANOFORTE
Played by JOSEPH SLATER (Flute) and GORDON BRYAN
(Pianoforte)
Fourth Sonata, in C
THE last three sonatas are more simply constructed than the first three. Those were of the Concerto type. These resemble more the Suite, with its four or more Movements, and its broad contrasts of quick and slow pieces, of quite simple build (mostly in two portions, both using much the same material).

There is less richness of treatment, less flowering of the Flute part, in these last Sonatas, though they have plenty of character, and the melodic lines are attractively bold and clear.
The C major Sonata begins with a Movement that, after a sedate Introduction, goes on to a very brief, capering Presto, and ends with a few slow bars, that lead into the running Second Movement, in the stylo of the agile Courante, one of the dance Movements that we know in the Suites.
Fourteen bars of very expressive slow music lead to a couple of Minuets, after the second of which, the first is repeated.

: Prof. W. N. TATTERSALL: ' Nature's Reaction to Man-1, The Balance of Nature.' S.B. from Cardiff

FOR thousands of years man has gradually been fashioning the world of Nature to his own liking, and in the last century lie has made great strides. Now he extirpates whole races of animals (as he has done to the bison and is doing to the whale), razes forests, drains swamps and makes lakes, until the face of Nature is being changed beyond recognition. Side by side with these vast and obvious changes go many as far-reaching. but less obvious, and it is with these, and with their reaction upon man himself, that Professor Tattersall will deal in his series of talks.

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.
