Professor ARNOLD PLANT. (Sir Ernest Cassel Professor of Commerce, London School of Economics) : ' How Wealth has Increased-II,
Natural Wealth '
THIS week Professor Plant talks about
' Natural Wealth ' — i.e., the natural resources upon which wealth of all kinds ultimately depends. In this respect the twentieth century is faced with a new problem : the opening up of now continents and countries, and the consequent increase of wealth, has practically stopped. To balance this, however, the rate of increase of population is falling; so that each person's share of the existent wealth is decreasing less rapidly than might be supposed. Next week Professor Plant will go on to discuss the improvements we are making in methods of exploiting these natural resources.

IVAN PHILLIPOWSKY (Pianoforte)
THE STRATTON STRING QUARTET:
GEORGE STRATTON (Violin); WILLIAM MANUEL
(Violin): LAWRENCE LEONARD (Viola);
JOHN MOORE (Violoncello)
MOST composers begin their careers by writing chamber music. Elgar reversed the order.
All his chamber music, or, at least, all he has given to the world, dates from 1918, long after he had composed music in every other form. This quartet was written in the peace of the country, and breathes of it.
WHEN John Ireland wrote the Pianoforte Sonata, in 1920, he had already established his right to be considered in the front rank of English composers. Three years before, his second Violin and Pianoforte Sonata had so impressed the music world that there could be no other conclusion. Ireland has composed comparatively little, for all his reputation. This is easily explained: he never writes unless he is moved to do so, and having written a work, he never lets it alone until he is satisfied with it. A rare integrity.
DVORAK wrote this work on his return from America.
It is true he had there been impressed with the beauty of the Negro melodies, and there is a decided hint of their employment nore. or so thought the Americans who claimed to have inspired the quartet. Dvorak's countrymen indignantly thought otherwise, but the name of The Nigger Quartet has stuck.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
