Like Glazounov, Ippolitov-Ivanov has been recognized by the present government of Russia. In 1923 he was given the title of 'People's Artist of the Republic.' Born in 1859, he was a pupil of Rimsky-Korsakov, and has held the posts of conductor at the Tiflis Opera, and Professor of Composition in the Conservatoire at Moscow. In composing music with an Eastern flavour he is on ground which is familiar to him, and these Caucasian Sketches are full of vivid suggestion of the Near East.
There are four scenes which he calls:
(1) In the Mountains
(2) In the Village
(3) In the Mosque
(4) Procession of the Sirdar
A Play in One Act by Arnold Bennett
Mrs. Prout, the famous novelist, has many cares apart from the exercise of her profession, for her stepson, Adrian, has had to be turned out for falling in love with her secretary; the butler gives notice, because he disapproves of her latest novel; and the doctor in the flat downstairs wishes to marry her. This morning, there is an attack in one of the leading daily papers on her treatment of medical detail in her novels, and she has an awful fear that the doctor downstairs may have written it. She tries to dictate to her young secretary, but her worries obtrude themselves. The secretary mentally decides that she will write an article on 'Hysteria in Lady Novelists.'

Sir Harry Jardine has not been in San Francisco for many days, but he makes some excuse to visit Mrs. Transford every day. He is twenty-five and she is nearing forty, but is still exceedingly attractive. It is perfectly obvious that he is in love with her. He is rather inexperienced so far as women are concerned, for his mother lived in isolation after his father's death when he was a baby. Mrs. Transford tells him her own story.
Sir Harry Jardine:
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.
