: CHINA

VII, China's Contribution to Civilization,* by Mr. H. J. SILCOCK
DESPITE the alleged and permanent inability of East and West to meet and be other than ' twain,' it is of little use to deny the already significant influence that China has had upon our Western culture, both in art and in literature. Then there is always the gradual percolating contribution made by the residence abroad of millions of Chinese. In considering these things
Mr. Silcock will particularly stress the bearing of China's philosophy and outlook on life upon the present struggle between the civil power and the militarists. Further, he will outline some of the valuable contributions that China may still make to the West.

: Mr. Philip KERR, C.H.: 'The Week Abroad'

Mr. PHILIP KERR is one of those 'powers behind the throne' who have exerted a great influence on imperial development, yet with a minimum of publicity. He was one of those concerned in the creation of a constitution for the Union of South Africa and in the devising of a new constitution for India. As editor for many years of 'The Round Table,' as Secretary to Mr. Lloyd George "throughout the Peace Conference", and now as Secretary to the Rhodes Trust, he has played a large part in promoting a scientific study of imperial problems.

: A Harpsichord Recital

By Mrs. VIOLET GORDON
WOODHOUSE
THE Harpsichord, the most important of all the ancestors of our pianoforte, held the place of its more full-toned modern representative during the sixteenth, seventeenth, and eighteenth centuries. In Bach and Handel's music it figured regularly as a support to the orchestral instruments, and listeners to the Bach Cantatas are by now familiar with the word Continue, the ground bass from which the player of the harpsichord (or cembalo, or clavicembalo) filled up the harmonies.
The harpsichord differs from the modern pianoforte chiefly in this, that the strings are not struck by hammers, as the player depresses the keys, but plucked either by quills or by little hook-like pieces of hard leather. Originally, it had only one keyboard, so that no variation of tone was possible, but afterwards all manner of devices came into use for making louder and softer tone at the player's will, and many of the best examples which have come down to us have two keyboards, with several stops like organs.
Mrs. Violet Gordon Woodhouse has for a number of years made a special study of the instrument and its literature, and is known throughout the world as one of the leading exponents of its truly charming possibilities.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.
