: TALES FROM THE PACIFIC ISLANDS

by Sir Arthur Grimble including the early experiences of a District Officer in the Pacific Islands thirty-five years ago
1—' The Old Man of the Colonial Office'
When Sir Arthur Grimble joined the Colonial Administrative Service in 1914, he was the first of the species cadet to be appointed a District Officer in the Central Pacific. In this talk he describes his feeling when he attended a final interview at the Colonial Office, divided between a sense of his own inadequacy as a Kiph'ngesque leader of men and his romantic desire to explore the lagoon islands of the Pacific described by Robert Louis Stevenson.

: BBC SCOTTISH ORCHESTRA

(Leader, J. Mouland Begbie )
Conductor, Ian Whyte
Leonard Cassini (piano)
Vitezslav Novak (1870-1949) adopted music as a profession on the advice of Dvorak, to whom he wem for composition lessons. His Piano Concerto was written when he was nineteen, and he himself played the soio part when he graduated at the Prague Conservatoire as both composer and piamst. The work was played in public in Prague in 1915, but believing it to be immature, Novak discouraged further performances. Leonard Cas-sima holds the opinion that the Concerto, though romantic in style and unlike, Novák’s later music, is well worth revival. Harold Ruilsnd

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.
