: ' POVERTY AND PROGRESS'

Tom Harrisson reviews Seebohm Rowntree's new survey of York
Seebohm Rowntree's previous enquiry, ' Poverty ', made in 1899, was the most famous survey of the last century. The new book contains unique information about social changes in the past forty years, showing the great improvement in housing, social services, wages, etc., but also marking a considerable spiritual and ideological deterioration.

: BBC ORCHESTRA

Led by Marie Wilson
Conducted by Clarence Raybpuld
For Schumann 1841 was a year of great activity in orchestral music-the first, second, and fourth symphonies and that curiously titled work ' Overture, Scherzo, and Finale ' date from that period. The latter is virtually a symphony without a slow movement. Sir Donald Tovey suggests that Schumann's idea of calling it a sinfonietta (a little symphony) would have been more apt, as it accurately describes the real character and range of the work.
The three movements are in Schumann's happiest vein, particularly brilliant is the terse and pointed scherzo. The finale is described by Tpvey as moving ' imperturbably like the Red Queen crying " Faster, faster ! " as she rushed with Alice ever onward under the same tree in Looking-Glass Land '

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
