THE French Riviera, which Mr. Holt Marvell described in last Tuesday's talk, is well known as a holiday resort, and so is Brittany, with which Miss Maxse will deal next week. Today Mr. Branch Johnson will talk about a part of France less known than it deserves to be -the border-land where France and Germany meet, where the historic towns of Strasbourg and Colmar look down on the broad waters of the Rhine. He himself knows Alsace well, and he is an expert on the folk-lore of the French countryside.
BEGGARS AND BANDITS
(Beware of Pickpockets !)
The Company will include :
'Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves,'
'King Cophetua and the Beggar Maid,'
' The Jolly Beggar,' and ' The Highwayman ' (
Archibald Marshall ) and the proceedings will proceed to the strains of ' The Beggar's Opera' (Gay) and ' The
Vagabond King ' (Friml) played by THE OLOF SEXTET
T AST week, in thesecond of his series of talks on Modern Transport,' Mr. Stephenson dealt with the way in which railways are constructed and their costs of operation, referring also to the supervisory control over railway construction exercised by the State. Tonight he will go on to consider rates and fares and the means by which they are fixed; a subject in which State control bulks more than ever large.
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.
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.
