: 'BRITISH AND OVERSEAS DISHES '—VIII

Mrs. THIRKELL : Australian
Favourites '—I
THERE is very little difference between English and Australian cooking; but there are some dishes which the Australians look upon as particularly their own, especially those made with one or other of the fruits for which the country is renowned. Apart from its fruits, Australia is a great meat-eating country : but .the only particularly Australian meat is kangaroo—which is not very easy to get from English butchers. In this talk Mrs. Thirkell describes an Australian Christmas with the' thermometer at 105° : and yet they keep an English Christmas with turkey and plum-pudding ! The plum-pudding isn't quite the same, however. Mrs. Thirkell gives n recipe for it. Other dishes which she deseribes this morning are a salad dressing from Victoria and a cold pudding with passion-fruit. a purple-coloured egg-shaped fruit which comes over in bottles from Australia.

: The Foundations of Music

ELIZABETHAN MUSIC
Sung by THE WIRELESS SINGERS
Conductor, STANFORD ROBINSON
THE glory of our Elizabethan period in music was one in which everybody shared, from the Queen herself to the humblest countryman or woman. Splendid music was composed in such volume that big libraries would be needed to house it all, could it ho gathered together now, and the whole of Europe looked towards England with a great deal more than mere respect, for its music. But music was a part of everyday life, as it has never since been, here or anywhere : to be able to sing or play, to read one's own part at sight, in madrigal or in a consort of lutes or vicls, to accompany on the spinet or the virginal, was as much a part of the ordinary man's or woman's equipment, as walking or riding. These were not accomplishments whose possession marked one out for favour or attention : they were taken for grautod, as eating or drinking or sleeping are taken for granted now, and to proclaim oneself untutored in such ways was, indeed, to be an outcast. As we sit down now to a rubber of bridge, the Elizabethan household and its guests went after dinner to the music-room to sing or play, and part-books were sot out where we should look for cards. Quito often they were printed, not in score, but with the sheets for the several parts set together in cross-shape, so that the singers could stand, or sit, about a table, and each sing from his own page, without any guidance from seeing what the others wore about. No wonder, then, that much fine music was composed : it had to be, in accordance with the stern old law of supply and demand.
It may bo that the present day has improved conditions in some ways since then : it would need to offer something very valuable to make up for that loss of music as an everyday joy, a part of the common man's delight. We listen to music now, instead of making it ourselves : if the wireless singers are reviving something of that forgotten culture, if they can awako a renascence of household team-music as the bust use for evening's leisure from the worries of the day, they will deserve well of their generation.

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.
