' Those were the days when herds of buffaloes roamed the vast prairies, when the only roads were rough tracks along which the mail-coach rumbled and rocked and swayed, sometimes to be held up by Red Indians or white bandits, and the passengers robbed. Those were the days, too, when men came from every quarter of the globe-all drawn thither by the same magnet-gold.'

: Dr. F. S. WATERHOUSE: Some Ideas and Ideals of the World's Religions—VI. Religion and , Self realisation '

IN the first talk of his series, Dr. Waterhouse considers the Religion of Self-expression as evinced in the joyous worship of the Hellenic peoples. Thence he passes to the self-realisation and self-knowledge of the New Testament. He ends with a consideration of the place of religion in the circumstances of modern civilisation, and the ever-vital problem of Immortality.

MAY Busby (Soprano) JEAN POUGNET (Violin)
DOUGLAS CAMERON (Violoncello)
HARRY ISAACS (Pianoforte)
MOZART wrote seven Piano Trios (i.e., works of the ' Sonata' type for Piano, Violin, and Violoncello). Their order varies in different editions ; this one, however, may easily be identified, as it is the only one in E Major and is numbered K. 642. The work is in three Movements.
FIRST MOVEMENT (Quick).-This Movement is as clear in design as it well could be. It is in ' First-Movement ' form, i.e., two main tunes are given out, 'developed' in a free way; then ' recapitulated.'
The Piano alone plays the whole of the first main tune at the opening, then repeats it with some help from the other two instruments.
A few scales and other little phrases follow, then the Violin plays a continuous tune--the second main tune. It is repeated by the Piano. In the light of what has been said, the rest of this Movement explains itself.
SECOND MOVEMENT (Moving along gracefully).—
This is a highly decorated Movement, but it is founded on a very simple (though rather long. tune which is played at the opening by the Piano) The tune itself contains a good deal of repetition, and the other two instruments join in each time a sentence is repeated.
THIRD MOVEMENT (Quick). —This is a, typical
Finale—full of intricate details, but spontaneous in its effect.
THIS was originally written for Pianoforte,
Violin, and Horn. There are four Movements.
FIRST MOVEMENT.-A rather slow one. It opens with the first main tune, in two-time, given first to Violin and then to Horn.
The second main tune (again introduced by the Violin) is much more animated, and is easily recognisable, as it is in three-time.
SECOND MOVEMENT.—A Scherzo. The Piano races off with octaves in three-time. When the other instruments enter a moment later, it is with a bold phrase in two-time, the rhythmic contrast of which, whenever it appears, is one of the features of the Movement.
The Horn has a smooth second tune and then the two ideas are fully developed and repeated, and so the first part of the Movement closes. Its middle section (' Trio ') is much gentler. The first part is then repeated.
THIRD MOVEMENT.—This is an expressive Slow Movement.
FOURTH MOVEMENT.—The
Finale is a lively Movement, though not without its deeper moments.

: The MARQUESS OF ABERDEEN AND TEMAIR : 'Helen Keller'

TO be deaf, dumb, and blind might well seem a treble handicap under which the stoutest-hearted might despair. It was the fate of Helen Keller , now, despite the handicap, one of the most highly-educated and intellectual women in America. How she achieved this feat the Marquess of Aberdeen will describe in his talk tonight.

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.
