: 'ORKNEY REMINISCENCES

Talk by T. MacLachlan
This afternoon's speaker has well merited his Scottish distinction of a ' lad o' pairts '. T. MacLachlan is a stone-mason who served his time in the Orkneys, though he is now carrying on his trade in the North of England. Apart from his regular job he is something of a writer, and has contributec" to a number of the best journals. He has a keen and observant eye, and in his talk today he will recall life in the Orkneys as it was thirty or forty years ago, when communications were difficult, trading often a matter of barter, and the life of the community rigorously conditioned by its island circumstances.

: ODA SLOBODSKAYA

(soprano), sings a programme of Russian songs
This evening's recital is notable for the fact that the four songs by Taneiev have never been sung in -this country before. Taneiev, a famous Russian pianist and composer who was born in 1856 and died in 1915, resembled Brahms not only in outward appearance but in his attitude towards his art. He has been called the Dr. Johnson of Russian music, for he bludgeoned the modernists with great gusto and humour.

: MAKING PLANS'

' Planning the Countryside ' : Flora, Mrs. MacLeod of MacLeod, Joseph F. Duncan , Secretary, Scottish Farm Servants' Union, and John Cadbury
Vast changes have occurred in the countryside since the war, and even greater ones should be looked for in the' after-war years. Problems facing the authorities will be to reconcile the competing claims of agriculture, development, and recreation. The rural community itself will undoubtedly be transformed, and the townsman on holiday will probably call for freer access to mountain land, and for expertly organised facilities when taking his country or seaside holiday.

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.
