: Mr. Spencer COOPER : ' Flying from Ships '

IT is not generally realised how far developments have gone towards perfecting a means for aeroplanes to ' land ' on ships at sea. Yet one of the most feasible suggestions that have been made, in connection with any practical scheme for a trans-Atlantic air-service, depends entirely upon a chain of ' carriers ' over the ocean upon which aeroplanes may ' land ' for overhauling and fuel. Mr. Spencer Cooper , who, until recently, was a pilot in the Navy Air Arm, will be speaking from wide experience tonight when he describes what has already been achieved to make aeroplane work at sea a practical proposition. He will tell us how the ' landing ' on such a confined space is achieved ; what exactly a ' carrier ' is like, and what some of the trials both of pilot and ships' men entail.

: THE BERLIN PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA

Relayed from THE QUEEN'S HALL
ALTHOUGH not one of the venerable institutions in German music-it will not celebrate its jubilee till 1932—the orchestra has long been recognized as one of the foremost in the world. Each of its members is a first-rate player of his instrument, but its success has been won by splendid team-work rather than by individual skill; when it astonished London on its first visit, by playing really together and not merely approximately together, it was called ' well disciplined.' But discipline is taken for granted in such a body ; it is only the starting point. Enthusiasm for the team, whole-hearted, self-sacrificing, enthusiasm, is the real secret.
The great Nikisch, a very Napoleon among conductors, was its inspired and inspiring pilot for more than half of its lifetime ; under his mesmeric eye and hand, any orchestra played supremely well, and such an orchestra achieved wonders; that the great tradition of those twenty-five years of Nikisch's regime is worthily carried on, says as much for Furtwangler, the present conductor, as it does for the spirit of the orchestra.
To become a member of it is an affair of great difficulty. And a place in the team once won, it has to be kept by consistently keen work. The writer was once present when Nikisch stopped his players at rehearsal to tell one of the second violins, quietly and with the utter finality of a death-sentence—' You need not come here again.'

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.
