: A WOMAN'S DAY—I

Miss MARGARET BONDFIELD , M.P.
WHEN one considers the immense diversity of the pursuits in which women now engage, it is obvious that very few women can have much idea how the ' other half ' of the sex lives. This afternoon's talk is the first of a series in which representative women from various professions and occupations will describe their day's work, and to start the series, Miss Margaret Bondfield . (who was Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Labour in Mr. Ramsay MacDonald 's Government of 1924), will . describe a Parliamentary day.

: THE FOUNDATIONS OF MUSIC

SONG CYCLE: ' DIE SCHÖNE MÜLLERIN ' (' THE FAIR MAID OF THE MILL ') and other Songs by SCHUBERT
Sung by ROGER CLAYSON (Tenor)
DIE BOSE FARBE (The Hated Colour). He hates the colour that once he loved, for it stands now for jealousy and cruelty. He will sit at the beloved's door in storm and snow and sing his farewell. If ho could but touch her hand before he goes !
Trockne Blumen (Withered Flowers). The flowers she gave him shall wither on his grave. His tears water them, but cannot restore their freshness. Yet if she should stand by his grave and say : ' His love was true,' then he would wish the flowers to spring to life again, to give her his greeting.
Der Müller und der Bach (The Miller and the Brook). He talks to the brook, telling it of the sorrow of a true lova rojocted. The brook replies cheoringly, but he cannot be consoled. What peace is there for him now ? Only that which the friendly brook can givo -oblivion beneath its singing waters.
Des Baches
Wiegenlied (The
Brook's Cradle Song).
Such rest the poor miller seeks and finds. The kindly brook sings his lullaby. ,

: Mr. FRANCIS TOYE : ' Music in the Theatre'

ONE reassuring feature about the recent growth of talking films and musical accompaniments delivered intact from producer to exhibitor is that the importance of earefullychosen music as an ally to a film or a play is being more than ever stressed. The musical side of the ' flesh-and-blood ' theatre is, however, at present in a very healthy state, and Mr. Toye seldom fails to find some theatre music of real merit to discuss in his fortnightly talks.

: Mr. G. D. H. Cole: Modern Britain in the Making-1, Before the Great Change

LIVING, as we do, in a society almost completely industrialized, it is hard for any but. the professional historian to recreate for himself the very different Britain of the eve of the Industrial Revolution. In this new series of talks Mr. G. D. H. Cole, the economic historian and biographer of Cobbett, will describe how modern Britain came to be and out of what elements our present civilization was made. Basing his series largely on the evidence of contemporary writers (such representative figures as Burke, Cobbett, and Paine), he will start this evening by describing the England of that father of journalism, Daniel Defoe. This England was, as he will show, already to some extent a thriving industrial and commercial country, the Bank of England and the East India Company were flourishing, and London was actually larger, in proportion to the total population, than it is today.

He is, par excellence, the artist who needs no introduction and no programme. Everybody knows him, and knows that all hi songs are good. It is enough to announce quite simply that Sir Hairy Lauder will be on the air tonight.

: 'The Wonder Hat'

A Harlequinade by BEN HECHT and KENNETH SAWYER GOODMA
Cast :
Harlequin and Co., like all the younger immortals, readily adapt themselves to a new environment.
In the United States, their familiar, but rather noticeable costumes discarded in deference to trans-Atlantic civilization, and sponsored by two well-known American dramatists, they pursue their inconclusive love affairs, with only the slightest change of style.








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.
