: 'BACKS TO THE LAND'

by John Morgan , M.P., followed by a talk on killing and marketing rabbits by W. King Wilson
The valuable advice that W. King Wilson, of the National Institute of Poultry Husbandry, Newport, Salop, has broadcast to novices in this series has dealt with the method of producing rabbits for food and fur. He has discussed housing and feeding, breeding, and general management. The response has been surprising. An incredible number of listeners have taken up rabbit-keeping. One, an absolute novice, bought a pair of rabbits to help out his meat ration. They cost practically nothing to feed because he used lawn-mowings, weeds, and surplus greenstuff from the garden. Most of these things were always wasted, but now in less than a year, through utilising them, he has a score of rabbits which he wants to market.

: FAURE

Quartet for strings and piano in G minor, Op. 45, in four movements played by Winifred Small (violin) ; Eileen Grainger (viola) ; Kathleen Moor-house (cello) ; Maurice Cole (piano)
Gabriel Faure composed two piano quartets: the first, Op. 15, is a very charming, simple early work ; the second, Op. 45 in G minor, which was written seven years later, in 1886, is generally considered to be
. one of Faure's finest chamber works.
-Particularly fine is the scherzo, which has been described as ' the tumult of the storm '. The slow movement is Faure at his most poetic and expressive.

: 'MUSIC WHILE YOU WORK'

to records of Felix Mendelssohn 's Hawaiian Serenaders
In his twenties Felix Mendelssohn had achieved a radio name, especially for his ' Crooner's Corner ' feature, and he had won his spurs on the Continent with his own dance orchestra. His Hawaiian personnel does not confine itself to Hawaiian numbers ; classics of jazz are frequently broadcast, and such famous numbers as '12th Street Rag', ' Tiger Rag ', and ' Limehouse Blues ' have Jbeen recorded by the combination.

: NORTHERN PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA

Leader, Edward Maude
Conducted by Heinz Unger
Eda Kersey (violin) (Soloist, Eda Kersey ) from a Northern concert hall
There are not many violin concertos that, apart from purely violinistic considerations, deserve to be called ' great ' music-perhaps barely a dozen. Among these Mendelssohn's Concerto in E minor takes a very high place, for in addition to the beautiful and effective solo writing, the orchestral texture, light and graceful though it is, is intended to be symphonic in importance rather than a mere accompaniment to a brilliant violin solo.

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.

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.
