: 'THE CHILD'S WORLD '—VII .

Mrs. H. M. T. CARNELL : The Four-Year-Old at Home '
THIS talk follows logically on Mrs. Lettice Ramsey 's talk last week on how parents should encourage their children to amuse themselves. Mrs. Carnell is giving some account of the various simple games and toys, most of which can be made at home and which will at once amuse' and educate four-year-old children. It is not essential or desirable to leave children to learn the first principles of counting and writing at their nursery school; they will enjoy learning at home, and it will occupy their time. Mrs. Carnell is a kindergarten teacher of eight years' experience.

SCHUBERT SONGS
Sung by HELEN HENSCHEL
Gretchen am Spinnrade (Faust). While she spins, Margaret sings sadly that her peace of mind is gone and that she will nevermore find it again. The whirring of her wheel runs through the accompaniment.
Das Weinen—Weeping—is simply and yet eloquently expressive ; in gentle mood it hymns the praise of tears.
The Stars. He who would find true happiness must look upwards, fixing his thoughts on noble and lofty ideals.
Die Liebe schwärmt. Schwarmen has no exact equivalent in English; swarm ' is only one of many senses in which the Germans use it. In this song it means to glow, even to be ecstatic, with enthusiasm.
Zuleika's Song comes from Goethe's West-
Eastern Divan. She envies the west wind that can bring her lover tidings of her loneliness : ' haste to him,' she bids it, ' and tell him that his love is all my life.'
Rastlose Liebe. In setting forth the restlessness of love, the accompaniment has a vivid share ; until the end-' Joy without rest, thou art love '-it cannot settle down to any one key, though it does so with emphasis at last.
6.50-7.20 Mr. OTTO SIEPMANN : German Talk

: ' CAN DEMOCRACY SURVIVE ? '—IV

Mr. LEONARD WOOLF : ' Should we do what we
Want ? '
ANOTHER ideal of democracy was that
A everybody should be allowed to do what he wants to do. Here again we can trace the influences of two opposing forces : the one a growth of individual liberty since 1900, in the revolt of young and old, in the development of free speech, in the modification of dramatic and literary censorship ; the other in the idea that the State knows better than the individual about what he should do (in such matters as early closing and licensing hours), that imperial control is a good thing, in Communism and Fascism, and in the standardization of modern society.

: A Recital

by KEITH FALKNER (Baritone) and WILLIAM MURDOCH (Pianoforte)
KEITH FALKNER , one of the most popular baritones of our time, has been singing over since, at the age of nine, he became a chorister at New College, Oxford, under Sir Hugh Allen. After serving as a R.N.A.S. pilot during the war, he studied with Albert Garcia at the Royal College, singing also in the choir of St. Paul's Cathedral. Further study with Plunket Greene , with Liorhammer in Vienna, and Madame Dossert in Paris, helped to make him the artist of wide culture he is ; Vienna, Prague, Paris, and the United States have all welcomed him, as well as the great English Festivals and Concerts. He has all the Englishman's wholesome love of games. A member of the L.C.C., he plays cricket for his own county, and has been a member of the Middlesex hockey team.
AN Australian by birth, Murdoch may fairly count himself a citizen of the world by experience. After winning every kind of competitive prize in the various Eisteddfodau that abound all over Australia, he won a scholarship at the University of Melbourne. In 1006 ho gained the South Province Scholarship, entitling him to four years' scholarship at the Royal College of Music, London, and there ho again gained all the various medals and prizes open to him. Since leaving the Royal College of Music, ho has travelled greatly, having toured through the United States, Canada, South Africa, and New Zealand, and meeting everywhere with success.

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.
