: Broadcast to Schools: Life on the Seashore - Starfishes and Sea-Urchins

Prof. W. M. Tattersall

Which of us cannot remember the thrill with which we first found a starfish on the seashore, and wondered what it was? In many ways, the starfish is as wonderful to the zoologist as it is to the child.

This is the common starfish, one of the strange forms of life of the seashore about which Professor Tattersall will talk to Cardiff school children today.


Speaker: Prof. W. M. Tattersall

: An Afternoon Concert

The Station Orchestra
conducted by Warwick Braithwaite

The young Charpentier, having won at the Paris Conservatoire the premier prize in composition (the 'Prix de Rome') went, under the terms of the award, to study in Italy, and it was there that he thought out the five pieces comprising an Italian Suite. The printed score contains descriptions of each of the pieces.

I. Serenade. Young men coming from the inns are ardently singing beneath the windows of their sweethearts songs that have a trace of sadness. They are answered by mandolines and guitars.

II. At the Fountain. Grave, graceful girls move towards the ravine where the cascades flow, bearing pitchers on their heads. From the hill-sides come the gay songs of the shepherds.

III. On Mule-back. Toward evening, on the road that winds round the Sabine hills, the mules trot along to the music of their jingling bells. We hear the muleteer's song ('Cello) and the tender songs of girls.

IV. On the Heights. Noon in the Desert of Sorrento, the height that overlooks the town. We see the sun-scorched country through a haze of heat, and hear the joyous bird-songs and the distant monastery bell.

V. Naples-its population, its outdoor life and joyousness.

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
