: 'GRANDMOTHERS' TALES'

Miss M. SIDGWICK : 'The Napkin and the Pirates
THIS new . and interesting series of talks begins this morning. Miss
Sidgwick will bring each week somo object of historical interest-today it is an old napkin—and describe it and its adventures. All the history that she tells has been told her by word of mouth—tales, for example, that have been handed down in the families of her friends—which is how a great deal of history of the most vivid and interesting kind is known. Miss Sidgwick has told several ' Grandmothers' Tales' to Women's Institutes. She is the sister of Miss Ethel Sidgwiek , the well-known novelist.

Professor J. DOVER WILSON , Litt.D. (Professor of Education in the University of London) : ' Problems and Solutions '
HAVING investigated in his previous three talks the actual conditions of education today and in the last fifty years, and the forces that have combined to produce modern changes, Professor Dover Wilson proceeds this evening to discuss problems that arise in education today. Methods of education today arc changing rapidly and deliberately: what direction these changes should take is Professor Wilson's subject. Should schools prepare our young people for their future occupations ? Should there be .one system of education for everybody ? Who should control education ? These are some of the questions that are exercising the minds of those responsible for our education.

: An Operatic Programme

HERBERT JANSSEN (Baritone)
THE B.B.C. STUDIO SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA
Conducted by PERCY PITT
THE short slow movement of Mahler's
Fifth Symphony is quiet and tender in feeling; reminding us of more than one of his own simple songs, it uses only harp and strings. It lends itself well to performance apart from its context, and needs no explanation for its guidance.
T ISZT began this, the fourth of his symphonic poems, while he was conducting rehearsals of Gluck's opera Orpheus in 1854; it set him pondering upon the strange mastery which Orpheus exercised over wild beasts, and all the time ho had in mind a figure of the' first tone poet,' which lie had seen on an old Etruscan vaso in the Louvre at Paris.

KATHLEEN LONG (Pianoforte)
THOSE who know Mahler's music most intimately tell us that, in his songs wo can find the best clue to his big symphonies. Unlike most of the world's songs, his are not, as a rule, revelations of their composer's own spirit: they reflect rather the moods of Nature, the simple, primitive thoughts and emotions of which folk-song is full, and which make the folk-songs of all the world akin. The first two in this programme are settings of poems by Rückert, composed about 1906. Quite unlike the youthful merriment of the better known Magic Horn songs, they are- wistful and pathetic, Mahler's music enhances their quiet beauty in a way that brings its very fragrance to us as we listen.
HANS PFITZNER is an out-and-out
German, who has but little patience
I with modern tendencies. He has held a number of important teaching and conducting posts, but it is by his own music that he strives chiefly to uphold the traditions in which he believes so fiercely. That, naturally, makes it difficult for him to awaken the same sympathy in other countries, as in his own : there he has a body of 'enthusiastic admirers, and his big dramatic legend, Palestrina has been hailed as Parsifal's successor. He has composed more than a dozen books of songs, with texts for the most part of the simple order of German sentiment and romance with which our fathers were familiar. Melodious and wholly sincere in their enrichment of the words, they might well be sung more often than they are.

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.
