: ' Learning to Live '—XII

Professor JOHN MACMURRAY (Grote Professor of the Philosophy of Mind and Logic, University of London) :
' Education for Leisure '
LAST week Professor Macmurray stated the problem of the quantity and quality of leisure that an industrial democracy can provide, and the kind of use that can be made, of it for living a truly human life. What kind of training do we need if we are to share in a democratic culture ? How must wo be educated, if wo are to attain, under modern conditions, to the enjoyment of the fullest humanity that wo arc capable of reaching ? There is no end to the subsidiary questions which might be asked in this connection. Here are two which might well be used in preparation, not merely for this particular talk, but for the whole series : lirstlv, How much of all that I learnt during my education, has been of real value to me, and how much could I have done wthout ? and secondly, What has my education failed to give me that I feel the need of now? This is the last talk in the ' Learning to Live ' series. After Christmas, Professor Delislo Burns is to give a series of twelve talks on ' Modern Life and Modern Leisure ' beginning on January 8.

Conducted by STANFORD ROBINSON
HEDDLE NASH (Tenor)
BELONGING to a rank of society which has given the world only a few great masters of music, D'Indy began his career as a somewhat scantily equipped amateur. When, after fighting through the franco-Prussian war, he submitted a quartet to Cesar Franck , the master had to point out, very gently no doubt, that it was alogethor badly written and badly put together. D'Indy, howover, devoted himself with such energy and enthusiasm to serious study, that for many years he has holdaleading ; lace in the French world of music, as composer, teacher, and author. During his years of apprenticeship, he made the acquaintance of such great men as Liszt, Wagner, and Brahms, and was one of the very few French-men who had a hand in the first performance of the Nibelung's Ring at Bayreuth. Ho took a largo share in the early presentations of Wagner operas in Paris, and, by way of gaining practical orchestral experience, acted as second drummer in the Colonne concerts for some three years. At the same time ho was chorus master there and organist in a Paris church. He became, eventually, César Franck's favourite disciple, succeeding him in 1890 as President of the National Society of Music, and two years later was a member of the commission set up to reform the Conservatoire. His biography of his master is one of the finest tributes of its kind in the whole of musical literature. A man of immense industry and the highest ideals, ho has done more for the music of his own day and country than it would be at all easy to reckon, and his compositions range over a very wide field. Essentially French, his music springs from the best impulses of the romantic movement though his own character has all along been too strong to be very much influenced from outside sources.

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.
