: 'NURSING AT HOME '

Mrs. LUCY SEYMER , S.R.N.: 'Safe Rules for
Nursing'
THIS is the first of six talks about nursing, which are-like the Monday talks-to bo givenat 1.45 p.m. instead of in the morning. The letters S.R.N. after Mrs. Seymer's name mean, of course, that she is a State-registered Nurse. She waa educated at Lady Margaret Hall , Oxford, and then at St. Thomas's Hospital. She has had plenty of practical experience as a nurse, and has given lectures to the College of Nursing. She is also bringing out a book on the history of nursing in the near future. This is another of these practical talks for hard times ; good health and safe treatment are always an economy, and if you can dispense with a professional nurse, you will save more money still.

: ' Diseases of Organized Society '—I

Mrs. SIDNEY WEBB
MAN does not, and cannot, live in society
- without institutions. Each type of organization, whilst it fulfils certain needs and aspirations, develops, as it grows, specific forms of ' herd behaviour,' injurious to the commonwealth. Man's art of living in society consists in evolving the necessary types of organization, while counteracting the evil and fostering the eood in such institutions. Mrs. Sidney Webb , tonight and on the next two Thurs lays, will explain the way in which the social institutions of today can do harm. Mrs. Sidney Webb , who is, of course, the wife of Lord Pus.-i-field, did not find it consistent with her principles to adopt her husband's title when he was elevated to the peerage. She has worked long and assiduously for the people and for Socialism, by personal investigations of social and industrial conditions, by sitting on many and various committees, and by writing several books of importance on social and economic policy.

: THE B.B.C. ORCHESTRA

(Section D)
Conducted by VICTOR HELY-HUTCHINSON
PHILIP SAINTON is not only a composer, but a distinguished player of wide experienco in solo, chamber, and orchestral music. For a time viola player iri the London String Quartet, making one of their extended tours with them. lie is now deputy principal viola of the B.B.C. Orchestra, sharing the first desk with Bernard Shore. As a composer, too, his name is known overseas, and these orchestral pieces have been played in New York, with Hoogstraaten conducting, as well as at Promenade Concerts in London. They were originally called Sea Piclures, which, with the titles of the two movements, gives all the necessary guidance for their understanding and enjoyment. Another original work of his, of which many listeners must have happy recollections, is the whimsical ballet The Dream of a Marionette, to his own scenario ; it was played at a Promenade Concert in 1929 and broadcast.
TTUGH BRADFORD, ono of the youngest
Knglish composers who is making a naino for himself, is also a performer-an accomplished pianist. Ho plays for the Camargo Ballot Society, and is one of those nimble players who can roplaco the whole orchestra on the keyboard if need be. He has recently produced a ballot for the Old Vic and Sadlers Wells Theatres, and in that. as in other musical directions, his career will bo watched with keen interest. His Variations on a popular Theme were played in a Promenade Concert last September by Angus Morrison , to whom they are dedicated, and made a striking impression, by the sound knowledge they displayed of the pianoforte's capabilities and their skill in blending music with a merry sonsu of humour. In this new piece, of poetic and pictorial intent, he shows himself to be no loss surely at home in dealing with the orchestra.

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.
