: Mr. J. A. Newrick: 'Insurance Problems, IV: Unemployment Insurance' — II

THAT Mr. Newrick's aim -i.e., to give some simple and practical advice on the vexed problems of insurance-is being successfully achieved is shown by the considerable amount of correspondence his talks have evoked from listeners. His fourth talk deals with Unemployment Insurance.

: A MILITARY BAND CONCERT

PARRY JONES (Tenor)
ANTHONY PINI (Violoncello)
THE WIRELESS MILITARY BAND
Conducted by B. WALTON O'DONNELL
A HUMORESQUE is not necessarily a humorous piece.
The name means rather something capricious and wayward. But in this music by the popular conductor of the Wireless Military Band there are flashes of real humour, as is only right and proper when a composer is a genial Irishman.
Mr. O'Donnell is, of course, not merely a military bandmaster with the conventional training and traditions of such a task; he is a thoroughly equipped all-round musician, whose work for orchestra is no less distinguished than for the band.
The names of these three pieces are almost all that listeners require by way of guidance. Over a vigorous bass the first begins with a rather pompous tune for cornets and wood-winds. Clarinets answer it, a little pertly, and then there is an expressive slower section with a comet solo. After that, the vigour of the opening returns, and the piece ends whimsically with a swift little rush.
Number two has a few bars of capricious prelude and then clarinets and flutes together play the merry, leaping tune; there is a short, more emphatic interlude which leads to a gracious waltz with a tune not unlike the first one. Again, there is an emphatic interruption and the- opening melody returns.
To the third and last movement there are again a few bars of prelude, and then in the most vivacious measure, clarinets and alto saxophones play the hurrying tune. It comes to an end quietly, and in slower measure the woodwinds, softly at first, have a contrasting theme. There is a horn solo in the manner of recitative, which leads to a return of the beginning, and a coda in three short sections, one quick and strenuous, one more majestic, and one in the swift measure of the opening, rounds off the movement and the suite.

: Air Vice-Marshal Sir W. SEFTON BRANCKER, K.C.B., Director of Civil Aviation : ' A Survey of Flying Progress '

PROGRESS, in aviation, means quite a lot. When one considers how the last thirty years have seen telescoped into their span as much pror gress in air transport as three thousand achieved in transport by land or sea, one realises that every year that passes makes the achievement of the last seem out-of-date and stale. There is every reason, therefore, for the layman who wants to be intelligently air-minded to be periodically informed by an expert of the most recent advances that have been made. Tonight Sir Sefton Brancker , who has been Director of Civil Aviation to the Air Ministry since 1922, will give such a survey, the occasion being particularly appropriate, since the Royal Air Force Display took place last Saturday, and the Aeronautical Exhibition at Olympia opens tomorrow.

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.
