: 'GREAT OCCASIONS IN OTHER LANDS '—IX

Mrs. NORBERG : Lapland'
MRS. IRMA NORBERG is a Swedish lady, and is to give a talk on her native land in this series on December 14. Both these talks are being relayed in Sweden, where they are attracting considerable attention. Mrs. Norberg, besides writing for the British Press, is London correspondent of the Swedish daily paper Göttborgs Handelsoch Sjöfarts-Tidning and of the weekly Vecko-Journalen. She has also written a Swedish Guide- Book to London and the British
Isles, which is to bo published- this winter. She spent part of last summer in Lapland, where she acquired an intimate knowledge of the curious customs and old superstitions of the Lapps. These people, who inhabit the northern part of Sweden, are like North Asiatic tribes in appearance. They are mostly nomads, who count their wealth by the number of reindeer they possess.

: A Light Classical Concert

NORAH SCOTT TURNER (Soprano)
THE CANADIAN TRIO
B.B.C.listeners first heard these young people in * a Surprise Item at the beginning of 1929, within a month of their arrival in this country. The pianist, the eldest of the three sisters, was then only fourteen, the violinist twelve, and the 'cellist ten-it is odd that that big instrument is often entrusted to the smallest hands-and thoir playing was an amazement as well as a surprise, so confident was it in its grasp of the music. They had already, more than a year before, astonished such exacting judges as Dr. Bairstow and John Peebles Conn , at the Winnipeg Festival of 1928 : their playing then was acclaimed as extraordinary in its power and technical achievement. Since their first performance at Savoy Hill they have broadcast sevoral times, as well as appearing with signal success in recitals and other concerts, though it hardly needs mention that a great deal of earnest study has been, and is still being, done by all three. But already their playing is of a standard which challenges criticism on its merits and not merely as the precocious work of three very gifted young people.

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.
