Dr. LETITIA FAIRFIELD: How the Surgeon can
Help '
MOST parents are desperately
MOST, parents are desperately frightened of surgery, and when the doctor recommends an operation, will do their best to prevent it. Dr. Fairfield explains'how absurd this is, and how useful the surgeon can be in preventing all kinds of malformations and diseases in children. Dr. Fairfield, who, as well as being a doctor, is a barrister of the Middle Temple, has been Senior Medical Officer to the L.C.C. since 1911. Her first post, in 1907, was that of clinical assistant to the Birmingham City Asylum; she was later attached as House Surgeon* to the Children's Hospital at Nottingham. For some years she was with the R.A.F. Medical Service. She was also for some time co-editor of School Hygiene. She is the sister of ' Rebecca West ,' tho well-known novelist and critic.

: ' Can Democracy Survive ? '—VIII

The Rt. Hon. Lord Eustace PERCY, M.P.
LAST week Lord Eustace Percy reviewed the social ideals of the nineteenth century; this evening he points out some of their political consequences. They are manifold; they include the extension of the vote, social reforms of all kinds, development in local government, and colonial expansion; but the pursuit of wealth, which was one of the main characteristics of the Victorian era, tended to exalt the national state and so to increase international friction. Lord Eustace describes the extension of State action that was characteristic of the first years of this century, and compares it with similar developments in other countries.

: A Popular Recital

BEN DAVIES (Tenor)
YORK BOWEN (Pianoforte)
CARO MIO BEN , the first three words of a lovely eighteenth-century Italian song, long ago came, by some witty inspiration, to moan Ben Davies. Allover the world countless friends and admirers use the phrase as a pet-namo for him ; the art of genial friendship is not less truly his than the singing which has made him a great figure in opera and oratorio, in festival and ballad concert, for more than half a century— and on both sides of the Atlantic. He had parts in many productions which help to make up the history of English music-Goring Thomas's Esmeralda, Mackenzie's Colomba, and Stanford's Canterbury Pilgrims, among them; he was Ivanhoe at the English Opera House, which is now the Palace Theatre, and Geoffrey, in Cellier's Dorothy, throughout a two-years' run. And for years no great. Festival was a festival without him. A native of Swansea, he began singing at Eisteddfod contests as quite a small boy. It was on winning a first prize in one of these that he came to the Royal Academy of Music in London to study for the career in which he has so long held a foremost place.
A NATIVE of London, York Bowen enrolled at
A the Royal Academy of Music at the ago of only fourteen, as a student, of composition and pianoforte, winning distinction in both. Long ago recognized as one of the most brilliant pianists of our time, he is a composer of quite original gifts. His own instrument has naturally boon generously treated with three concertos and many smaller pieces, but ho has done notable work for the orchestra, too. A Symphonic Fantasia of his was given by Hans Riehter both in London and in Manchester before the War ; and his Symphony in E Minor, as well as a brilliantly effective Violin Concerto, was warmly received in the Queen's Hall. But, thoroughly at home as ho is in the large forms, ho is no less happy in dealing with more light-hearted themes like the Fragments from Halts Andersen, which have been broadcast in an arrangement by Gerrard Williams for Military Band.

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.
