A Few Hints on How to Play Lawn Tennis' by Mrs. LAMBERT CHAMBERS
MR. POWELL-OWEN'S series, of which the present talk is the second, is a continuation of that given in the spring ; it deals, however, with poultry-keepers in general and not, as was the former ease, exclusively with the small poultry-keeper.
MR. BALLARD, who is one of the senior Education
Inspectors of the London County Council, and is also on the Council of the Child Study Society, will give some information in his talk tonight about what is being done to counteract the monotony of so much of the modern repetition work in factories, etc.

MARSDEN COLLIERY BAND SVENDSEN was the son of a military bandmaster, and himself held such a post while only in his teens. He had some experience, too, as an orchestral musician, and when only twenty-one set out on a tour of Sweden and northern Germany. No great good luck attended him, until, two years later, he obtained a grant from Charles XV to enable him to carry on his studies of the violin. Again misfortune overtook him and paralysis of one of his hands brought his career as a violinist to an end. Turning his energies to composition, he produced some quite interesting chamber music and a symphony, travelling in Denmark, Scotland and Norway, introducing his own works. For two years, 1868 until the war of 1870, he was in Paris, and thereafter his life was a succession of journeys, in the course of which he held posts as conductor in many centres of music. He enjoyed the friendship of the- greatest men in the world of music, and had opportunities of hearing many of his own works performed under the best possible conditions. His music, though reminding one pretty often of Grieg's, does not concern itself so constantly with Norway, partly, no doubt, because of his own wide experience of many different lands. But it has the same finely melodious qualities and this piece is admirably laid out for the violin, as not even pieces composed by violinists always are.

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.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
