: THE WEEK'S GOOD Cause :

Appeal on behalf of the Duchess of York's Maternity Centre by Lady OSSULSTON.
THE district served by this clinic is somewhat remote from the range of any other similar institution, and the district itself is terribly overcrowded. The clinic (which was started two years ago) looks after poor mothers before the birth of their babies, and nurses them in their homes after the birth. Tho staff of the clinic consists of a resident doctor and some students (all of whom pay for their own board and keep), a nurse, a chauffeur-dispenser, and a non-resident health visitor. It is most economically run, but extension into an adjoining building has become necessary, and it is to pay for this that the appeal is being made tonight.
Contributions should be sent to [address removed]

THE Woodland Sketches, originally written for
Pianoforte, are among the happiest tokens of MacDowell's affection for the countryside.
T_ 4.1 : 1 1 i."
In these pieces we hear how his imagination responded to the legends and folklore of Europe (ho spent some years in study and teaching in Germany, and loved to travel in England and Scotland), and to the beauties of the woodlands of his native America. The moods vary from the tender wist fulness of To a Wild Rose to the whimsicality of From Uncle Remus, a depiction of one of Joel Chandler Harris 's delightful tales of animal life. Tho indication at the head of this last piece — ' Humorously, joyously,' gives us the cue, and we have only to think of any of the impudent adventures of Brer Rabbit to enjoy the piece, written, we may be sure, with a twinkle in the eye.
COMPOSERS often make orchestral pieces out of the material of their operas. Rimsky-Korsakov, in this case, reversed the process, and made the Opera, Sadko, out of an orchestral work.
The story, as prefixed to the score of the symphonic poem, is as follows :
' The ship of Sadko, a well-known citizen of Novgorod, stops in the sea. Lots are drawn and Sadko himself is thrown overboard as a tribute to the Sea-King..... The ship then goes on its course.
' Left alone in the midst of the waves, Sadko, with his lyre, is entertained by the Sea-King in his submarine kingdom. Great festivities are taking place, the Sea-King having just married his daughter to Ocean. The King, having requested Sadko to play on his lyre, begins, with all his court, to dance. Ocean dances too, rises and swallows up the ships ; ... then Sadko slackens the strings of his lyre, the dance ends, and the sea becomes calm.'








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.
