: Mrs. L. K. HEAL; More Home-made Sweets'

A MONGST. all the standardization and uni-
A. formity and mass production that distinguish modern life, people often crave for the more homely, more individual products of a generation or two ago. One instance of this reaction was the success of Mrs. Heals last talk on how to make the old-fashioned sweets, and many hundreds of recipes were sent out to listeners who wanted to make them for themselves. There will, therefore, be a large and enthusiastic audience for her second talk this afternoon.

: The Foundations of Music

Modern French Pianoforte Music
1880-1900
Played by Mrs. Norman O'Neill
Although he had a very large and varied output, Saint-Saens is known to us largely by two classes of work - Opera and Orchestral music. In his Pianoforte music we find some of his most graceful writing - racy, resourceful, amiable and unceasingly fluent, with now and then a clear trace of his classical leanings.
Upon Gabriel Faure, who died in 1924, in his eightieth year, a great many official distinctions were conferred, including the rare one of a 'National Homage' at the Sorbonne in 1922, when he was elected to the highest class in the Legion of Honour. Considering that ho produced a great quantity (over 120 works) of charming music, eclectic and urbane, typical of the best qualities in French music of his day, it is somewhat surprising that comparatively little of it is commonly played here.

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.
