: THE QUIETEST SCHOOL IN ENGLAND

Ninety per cent Bluff
Talk by F. Macey Leigh
The speaker recalls his time as assistant master at Steepway College in 1906. It was a school devoted more to fresh air and exercise than to learning, and the headmaster in many ways took second place to the cook. If the school's scientific w:ng was poorly equipped (as the cook had occasion to complain), the classes in hygiene that rhe speaker initiated made a great impression in academic circles.

: MODERN POETRY

C. Day Lewis, in a series offour talks illustrated by readings, examines the scope and problems of modern poetry
1-What is ' Modern Poetry ' ?
Reader, Jill Balcon
The 6peaker deals with some of the misconceptions commonly held about the nature of modern poetry: he points out that modern poets have as much respect for tradition, language, and technique as any of their predecessors-rhat in fact they are first and foremost poets, not just ' modern poets.'

: BACH

Motet: Jesu, meine Freude sung by the Geraint Jones Singers
Conductor, Geraint Jones with Ambrose Gauntlett (cello)
Peter Beaven (cello)
J. Edward Merrett (double-bass)
Alan Harverson (organ)
Six motets by Bach have come down to us, of which the present one is rather exceptional. It is the only five-part motet, most of them being for double choir. It is also the longest and most varied, using six verses of a hymn by Johannes Franck , interspersed with choruses to words from Romans 8, used as a commentary upon the thoughts suggested by the hymn. Schweitzer calls it ' Bach's sermon upon life and death.'
The motets are usually sung unaccompanied today, but there is definite evidence that at !east some of them had orchestral parts added by Bach, so tonight's performance will be strengthened by lower strings and organ. 7. H. Davies

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.
