: Household Talk: Mrs. LESLIE MENZIES, ' Furnishing a Small Flat— I '

THE face of England is still covered with those solid, spacious houses that our ancestors built themselves-too solid to "fall down, but too spacious for their descendants to afford. This is the ago of the fiat, and a floor space that in the Victorian age would have been thought hardly adequate for a drawing room, and into which the Elizabethans would not have squeezed a bedroom, now suffices for all the needs of many a family entitled to be styled well-to-do. Even if the sort of flat that was so amusingly pictured on the ' Both Sides of the Microphone ' page last week is not yet universal, congestion is the rule, and compactness and economy of spaco are the chief essentials in modern furniture. In this series of talks Mrs. Menzies will describe various schemes for furnishing and also decorating a small flat at a very reasonable cost.

LEON GOOSSENS and THE VIENNA STRING
ARTHUR BLISS (born 1891), lately spent three years in California, during which he produced but few pieces. His output is not very great, and practically all his published compositions date from after the war. The Colour Symphony and the Conversations for String and Wind instruments (chamber music) are perhaps his best known works.
This Quintet, published in 1928, is dedicated to the notable American patron of Music, Mrs. Elizabeth Spraguo Coolidge, who inaugurated the Berkshire (Mass) Festivals of chamber music, and has given an annual prize of 1,000 dollars for a composition.
The Quintet is in three Movements. In the First, the engaging theme that opens the ball is much used, in one form or another-changed in pace, mood, and rhythm. Tho Second Movement (At a comfortable, not slow pace) has some bold sweeps of melody and striking figuration, and works up to a powerful emotional climax before its delicate, pastoral-piping end.
The Last Movement starts a lively, jigging tune, that runs an exhilarating course. In the middle the composer introduces a tune called ' Connelly's Jig,' which the bboe gives out whilst the Strings slightly support it.

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.
