SONGS BY LUTENIST COMPOSERS
Sung by HERBERT HEYNER (Baritone)
CAMPIAN'S first song is a fresh-airy piece in praise of Spring, contrasted with the discontent of the poet. The secret of his mood is in the last two lines-
Unkindly if true love be used, 'Twill yield thee little grace.
LITTLE is known of Thomas Greaves , who published only one collection of pieces, containing both solo airs and madrigals. His song is a setting of a curious poem telling (with a fundamental dourness) of how woman brought woe to man, and how man was helped to rise to higher things.
TN Dowland's pedlar's song ' Fine knacks ' there is mingled some philosophy about love, of which, the poet declares, even a beggar may be liberal.
The ' speed ' in the other Dowland refers to success in love. The lover seriously considers what to do about his failure to impress the lady, and determines, in rather inconclusive fashion, that either he ' will love or admire ' her.
TONES' poet argues more vehemently about woman's coyness-a regular disquisition, allusive and not too easy to follow.

: Dr. H. J. W. HETHERINGTON : 'The Meaning of Good-V, Personal and Social Good.' S.B. from Liverpool

LAST week Professor Hethorington discussed the happiness' theory of good. This evening he will deal with the opposite view, which sees good as an inner state of will independent of all external conditions ; and he will go on to estimate the merits and the defects of the theory of self-realization,' which attempts to combine what is valuable in both views.

: ' La Serva Padrona '

(THE MAID TURN'D MISTRESS)
By PERGOLESI
Libretto by G. A. FEDERICO
THE WIRELESS ORCHESTRA, conducted by ARTHUR BLISS
EIGHTEENTH-CENTURY Italians liked variety in their evenings at the Opera. Between the Acts of the serious works were placed slighter, humorous pieces, termed ' Intermezzi.' La Serva Padrona is such a piece. It was first performed in 1733, on a gala evening in Naples, when the birthday of the Empress Christina was celebrated.
The plot is very simple. The gloomy old
Uberto, tired of quarrelling with his wilful servant girl Serpioa, decides to marry someone. Serpina thinks she would like to be his wife, and disguises the serving-man Vespone (who never gets a word in edge-ways), pretending that he is a ferocious fellow and that she is going to marry him. Poor Uberto, partly afraid and partly sorry for Serpina, agrees to marry her himself ; then the truth is disclosed, and all ends happily.

: Prof. R. M. Y. GLEADOWE : 'How to Appreciate Pictures '—IV

TO-NIGHT Professor Gleadowe concludes his short series of talks. Hia final advice to those who want to enjoy good pictures is never to miss a chance of looking at them. But he will suggest a few short cuts which his own experience as a student of art suggests to him as likely to be helpful to others.

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.
