MR. SIMPSON, who is associated with the National Federation of Rambling Clubs, is an old hand at the game, and should be able to tell would-be ramblers about a great many rules and regulations with which they ought to be familiar if they do not want to land themselves, quite inadvertently, in awkward situations. His talk should also be of great interest to the general listener.

VON Suppe 's name is best remembered in this country by his Overture Poet and Peasant. It is one of the most popular light Overtures in existence. In the course of his busy life ho composed, according to one authority, 165 light pieces for the stage, as well as bigger and more important works, including two Grand Operas, a Mass, and a Requiem, and that list takes no account of such early work as another Mass which was performed when he was only fifteen.
A number of his light operas were given in London towards the end of last century, but it is now almost solely by such shorter pieces as this bright and melodious Overture that we know him.
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.
