: Miss MOLLY SWABEY: Very old are these Rhymes '

NURSERY rhymes-those quaint and haunting little verses that are still told by nurses to their children even in this wireless age-are interesting not merely because of their associations with our earliest memories, but because many of them have a long and important history of their own. Miss Molly Swabey has gone deeply into this subject, with a view to writing a book about it, and in this afternoon's talk she will give some surprising information about the origin of some of the most artless of these rhymes.

BEATRICE HARRISON and JOHN IRELAND
Sonata for Violoncello and Pianoforte (Composed in 1923) JOHN IRELAND (born at Bowden, Cheshire in 1879) was, it will be remembered, the subject of the second ' New Friends in Music ' hour recently. This programme will enable listeners who may not be very familiar with his music to make acquaintance with other sides of his art. In one particularly—in chamber music— he has won very wide distinction.
His first Sonata for Pianoforte and 'Cello (in G Minor) is in three Movements : (I) At a moderate pace, in sustained style; (2) Rather slow and broad ; connected by a soliloquy for the 'Cello to (3) At a comfortable pace,in a well-marked rhythm.
From its first performance at the Æolian
Hall Miss Harrison has been associated with this Sonata, for it was she who played the 'Cello part on that occasion.

Second Trio (1917)
THIS work, in one Movement, is made up of a number of cohering short sections, and has a notable amount of variety in it.
Its slow opening, very soft, is like the opening idea, suggestive and clearly, quietly put, of a conversation between friends. There is soon a very emphatic burst of agreement about something, and then a moment of quietness, before the 'Cello drops in a much gayer thought. The Violin develops it, and all get excited. So the talk goes on, with plenty of fresh ideas, briefly discussed, and a little drawing together of the threads near the end (when there are spells of five-in-a-bar and seven-in-a-bar). The finish is tremendously vivid. There is something here of that quality of ruggodness that is often spoken of in connection with Ireland's music.

: Mr. VERNON BARTLETT : 'The Way of the World'

ONE of the most popular of the regular series of talks is Mr. Vernon Bartlett 's Thursday evening survey of world politics. The way of the world takes some understanding nowadays. Mr. Bartlett, however, has special qualifications for his work, for he has been both special foreign correspondent of .a London newspaper, and a prominent official of the League of Nations Union.

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.
