EVERY good meal, it is estimated, should contain somewhat over a thousand calories. To obtain this number of calories depends, of course, on the kind of food used, and in this morning's talk listeners will be given a clue to the kinds of recipes that can be guaranteed to provide these calories in the cheapest way.

ONE of the most vexing problems of the modem business girl, whose mid-day meal is apt to be scanty and hurried, is how best to fare for food in the evenings and mornings. Miss Helen Tress , who is giving this talk, is lecturer on Domestic Science at King's College, London.

THE poetry of today is easily classified into two distinct schools; they may usefully be termed the ' emotional' and the ' intellectual' schools. The appeal of the former is naturally the wider; but poetry of the cerebral type finds an unexpectedly wide following. Of the emotional school one of the founders may be said to be Masefield, with whom, particularly, Prof. Crofts will deal in the last talk of his series. Masefield began with such ' realist' poems as 'The Widow in the Bye Street' and 'The Everlasting Mercy': his output latterly has been almost entirely religious or classical in theme; but whether of the first period or tho last, Masefield's poetry has the power to catch the ear of the majority without pandering.

ONE of the things which has kept a good deal of the late
Sir Hubert Parry 's music from winning the place in our affections to which it is richly entitled, was the self-denying rule which he laid down during his regime at the Royal College that no work of his own was to be performed there. In that way he missed opportunities of winning adherents such as few composers would have been modest enough to pass by, and to this day his music is comparatively little known to the concert-goer, though when chances are offered of hearing it, it makes its effect very surely, though almost always by the simplest means. It inclines, more than most modern music, to a rather strict shapeliness in design, but is, none the less, rich in beauty of an eminently sand and wholesome order. It has breadth and bigness, too, as well as a sturdy sense of humour ; if its qualities had to be summed up in one word, ' English.'jwould probably be the most satisfactory description.

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.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
