This is the first of a new series of talks on the problem of the growing boy and girl. During the spring a similar series dealt with the difficulties met by the Young People's Organizations, first from the point of view of the boys and girls themselves and second by the general problems of adolescence which are met with by all such organizations. The present series is of a rather different character, as fortnightly periods of a quarter of an hour will be allotted to some of the leading organizations dealing with boys and girls. In these talks each organization will outline the problems from its own angle and show how they are being dealt with.

Making his name first as a brilliant concert pianist, Grovlez has devoted many years of hard work to teaching and conducting. For a time chorus master and conductor at the Opera-Comique, he was transferred to the more important Opera itself in 1914; he has conducted Opera in the United States, too. The stage has naturally claimed a share of his own composition, but he has given us purely orchestral and chamber music as well, and his pieces for pianoforte - his own original instrument - are naturally admirably laid out to display its best qualities.
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.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and

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
