: (Daventry only) ' Some Balanced Ration Recipes '

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.

: Professor J. E. V. Crofts: 'The Adventure of Poetry-VI, Conspicuous Poems of Today'

S.B. from Newcastle.
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.

: A Programme of Music

by Sir C.Hubert H. PARRY
(1848-1918)
JOHN ARMSTRONG (Tenor) KEITH FALKNER (Baritone) THE WIRELESS SYMPHONY
ORCHESTRA
(Conducted by STANFORD
ROBINSON)
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.

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.
