: Mr. L. B. BEALE, H.M. Trade Commissioner in New Zealand: ' The Work of a British Trade Commissioner'

THE work done by a Trade Commissioner is an obscure but important part of the organization of the Empire's Trade. Mr. Beale, who gives this talk, is His Majesty's Trade Commissioner in New Zealand, and he is at present temporarily in London after touring the provinces of that great Dominion of the Antipodes, where he has been discussing with merchants, manufacturers, and Chambers of Commerce, possible openings throughout New Zealand for British trade. The work of these Trade Commissions is an aspect of the internal economy of the Empire which is far too little known for its always-increasing importance and value.

: THE FOUNDATIONS OF MUSIC

MODERN ENGLISH SONGS sung by JOHN THORNE
(Baritone)
Songs by JOHN IRELAND
Sea Fever
I have twelve oxen
Spring Sorrow
The Soldier
JOHN IRELAND (born 1879) wrote a fair amount of music when he was in his twenties, but most of it he has scrapped. He has not been a facile, over-productive composer, but has taken great pains to forge and temper his own virile style. He has, however, written upwards of fifty songs; some of these have become really popular-most of all the first two on this evening's programme. In fact, all these four are as representative as could be, at any rate, of all but his latest work.
7.25 Dr. H. J. W. HETHERINGTON : ' The Meaning of Good—I, The Question. Is an Answer Possible ?' S.B. from Liverpool
THE question that Dr. Hetherington will attempt to answer in this series of talks is one that goes to the roots of all philosophy. All men seek and value some things-wealth, fame, private happiness, and so on—and know that certain things are better worth having than others ; thoughtful men have tried to estimate the relative values of different kinds of ' good,' and some philosophers have tried to define the supreme good. Today Dr. Hetherington will deal with the views of those who, on the contrary, aver that there is no answer to the question, ' What is good ? '

A Comedy in One Act

.A little story which might have been given the alternative title of ' The Sub-Editor's Revenge.' But the uses of advertisement are too sweet to be poisoned effectively by the spite of a disappointed suitor.
THIS was performed for the first time last year at Petersfield in the open air, with Ivan Firth and the authoress-a niece of Sir Johnston Forbes-Robertson -in the parts. Tonight Miss Gertrude Elliott (Lady Forbes-Robertson) will take the part originally played by her niece. Mr. Ivan Firth plays his original part.

: Mr. DAVID BOMBERG and Mrs. STEWART ERSKINE : The Ancient City of Petra '

THIS evening's duologue is the result of an adventurous visit paid to Petra, famous as ' the rose-red city half as old as time,' by Mr. Bomberg and his wife in 1924. Mr. Bomberg was the first painter to work in this ancient city of Arabia since the visit of David Roberts in the early part of the last century. They stayed there for six months, living under canvas, and with an armed escort sent for their protection by the Government of Trans-Jordania. They were visited there by Mrs. Stewart Erskine , the well-known authoress and traveller, who will exchange reminiscences this evening with Mr. Bomberg. The letter's exhibition of pictures at the Leicester Galleries on his return from Petra aroused great interest in artistic circles. He is now holding a private exhibition in his studio at [address removed], and any reader who wishes to obtain an invitation should write to him there.

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.
