: A Talk on Turkey

THIS is the night on which the chief
J- European stations have agreed to devote a programme to Turkey, in the same way as Switzerland and Finland, for example, were celebrated last year. With Turkey, however, the difference in culture is so wide that a programme of Turkish music and poetry would have very little appeal to a Western audience. The political and social developments in Turkey are, on the other hand, of the highest importance to Western Europe, and they will be authoritatively described by a speaker well qualified to do so in tonight's talk.

: DORIS VANE

THE name ' Ballad' has undergone many changes through the ages. So far as we can now guess, tho original Balletta, bom in Italy, was a song to bo either accompanied by, or interrupted by, dancing. The word. is presumably the same in origin as Ballet.
The making of Ballads was a fashion. able accomplishment for many generations, and Henry VIII is supposed to have been something of a master of the art.
Tho contemptuous uso of the term began as long ago as Queen Elizabeth's reign. There is legislation as old as that with tho object of repressing Ballad singers. At the beginning of last century the same unflattering opinion of tho Ballad was current.
Nowadays the term is very heedlessly used, both about sung and instrumental music. Some of Schubert's finest songs are really Ballads, and the term, ' Choral Ballad,' is quite usual, meaning almost any tale in verse sung by a choir, generally with orchestral accompaniment. There are also Ballads for orchestra and for solo instruments.
As applied, however, to a song of tho present day, the term usually means a work of very slight musical value, almost always a sotting of three verses of somewhat conventional doggerel.








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.
