: 'SPENDING and Saving '—II, Buying

By Mr. A. KAHN
WE do not study the art of salesmanship as seriously here as they do in some other countries-the United. States particularly. What, in fact, are the qualifications and functions of the ideal salesman ? This is one of the questions Mr. Kahn answers in his talk tonight. Also, among other aspects of the matter, he discusses the cooperation of the purchaser that is implied in an efficient selling service. Over-buying, bargain sales, and circumstances in which it really is advantageous to buy in advance of requirements, are other points dealt with.

Act IV
Relayed from the Royal Opera
House,
Covent Garden
The first Act was relayed from the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, on Friday, June 7, so that listeners can no doubt remember who are the personages of the story.
Already in the first Act the final tragedy is clearly foreshadowed, and here it is worked out with inexorable force. The scene is a Druid Temple in the woods. Norma, the High Priestess who had been betrayed by the Roman soldier Pollione, learns from the young Priestess Adaigisa , on whom the Roman had also cast his eyes, that she has spurned him and is dedicating her life to religion. Norma strikes the brazen shield which summons the warriors, and war is declared against the invaders. But with the war chant there mingles a sound of tumult; a Roman has broken into tho Temple and has been captured. It is Pollione, who has tried to carry off: Adalgisa. The penalty ia death, but Norma, hoping to save him, offers to name another victim in his place-a foresworn virgin Priestess. ' Name her,' cry the people, and to their astonishment she pronounces her own name. Confiding her children to her father's care, she mounts the funeral pyre built for the intruder, but he, moved to penitence by her sacrifice, flings himself also into the flames, so that they may atone together for their past sin.

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.
