: The Origins of Life—IV, Fossils as Evidence of Past Climates and Conditions '
THAT fossil plants are more satisfactory than fossil animals as indicative of former changes in climate and conditions, is one of the main points in Professor Seward's talk tonight. The atmosphere and the distribution of climatic zones in the coal period, the warm or temperate climates in the polar regions in later periods, and the particular case of Greenland are other aspects of the origins of life dealt with in tonight's talk.

Dr. WILLIAM BROWN : ' Mind and Body-IV,
The New Psychology'
IT is not long ago since all illnesses were assumed to have their roots in the physical body. Wo now know, however, that no small proportion of the ills of the present generation have their roots in tho nervous system. An intelligent understanding, therefore, of the new psychology ' cannot but be of great interest to everyone. Dr. Brown's talk will give a brief outline of what this new science means.
THE story of Kalinnikov's short life is one of heroic struggle, first against bitterly unkind circumstances, and afterwards against failing health. He died at the early ago of 35, of consumption, which was largely a result of the privations he had endured as a boy and in his student days. In spite of the tragedy which thus cut short a career of great promise. his work, on the whole, escapes that note of gloom and pessimism which can be heard in so much of the modem Russian music. It is for the most part characterized by a. robust sanity, and a wholesome vigour, which are of themselves eloquent of his own brave spirit. Comparatively unknown, as yet, in this country, his music is gradually gaining wider recognition, as worthy of a distinguished place beside
! that of his more famous compatriots.
CINQ MARS,' the 5th of March, was one of the first things Gounod wrote for the Paris stage after his return home in 1875. For some years before that, he had been in this country, conducting at the Crystal Palace, the Royal Phil harmonic Society's Concerts, and founding the choir which originally bore his own name. It afterwards became the Albert Hall Choral Society, and still later the Royal Choral Society. Gounod had, in the meantime, been elected a member of the Institut, and no doubt felt that that called him home to a position in the French capital. Cinq Mars was produced nt the Opéra-Comique in April, 1877, and though it is suspected of having been composed in some haste, contains much molodious music of the order which we expect from the composer of Faust.

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.
