: Miss MURIEL CURREY : 'Dalmatia and Albania'

THE Balkan countries form-to the ordinary man—a confusing medley of races, languages and nationalities that the post-war readjustment of its names and frontiers has only worse confounded. Miss Currey, who is a well-known lecturer for the League of Nations Union, has just returned from a visit to Dalmatia and Albania, and in this afternoon's talk she will describe present-day conditions in these various Balkan lands.

SIR LANDON RONALD needs no formal word of introduction to a B.B.C. audience. or to any other British audience. He comes of musical stock, for he is the son of Henry Russell. whose Cheer, boys, cheer, and A Life on the Ocean Wave were so popular in their day.
After his period of study at the Royal College of Music, he toured as Solo Pianist in Wormser's Prodigal Son, a musical play without words, then conducted at Covent Garden, played Melba's accompaniments in America, and has in the last thirty years become famous as a Conductor. A few years before the war he became Principal of the Guildhall School of Music, and the R.C.M. elected him an honorary Fellow in 1924. As a composer he is best known by his incidental music to the dramatic version of Robert Hichens ' novel, The Garden of Allah, and by his Songs. These range from tiny ' encore songs ' to dramatic scenes such as The Lament of Shah Jehan and Adonais (a setting of Shelley's Elegy on the death of Keats).
The Suite from The Garden of Allah consists of the preludes and interludes to the various parts of the play. They are entitled: (1) Prelude ; (2) The Garden ; (3) Kyrie Eleison (based on a Gregorian Chant) ; and (4) The Dance of the Ouled-Nail (an African native entertainer).

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.
