Dr. C. DELISLE BURNS. D.Litt. (Stevenson Lecturer in Citizenship in the University of Glasgow) : ' Ways of Escape '
(From Glasgow)
I AST week, Dr. Delisle Burns outlined the problems raised by the modern development of machines for entertainment. There are other methods of escape from the monotony of everyday life, however, and Dr. Burns will outlino them tonight. Monotony drives men to oxcite-ment, and this may take the form of gambling or looking on at games. These are old way.4, however : more typical of today are such forms of escape as the modern movement for 'hiking.' Is there a return to the movement towards 'the open,' in contrast with the flight to the city streets of fifty years ago ? .
Next week Dr. Burns will consider the changes in conventions since last century.

: A Popular Recital

MAGGIE TEYTE (Soprano)
LAFFITTE (Pianoforte)
A LTHOUGH Schumann was twenty before he decided to devote himself wholly to music. ho made his first appearance at such an early ago that he had to stand up at the pianoforte instead of sitting down to it. When he did begin in earnest, he was so keen to become a first-rate performer as quickly as possible, that he invented a device for strengthening the weak fingers. But he discovered to his cost that there are no short cuts to mastery of a musical instrument, and he crippled one of his fingers for life. In understanding of the instrument and its possibilities, however, he was not only a real master, but a brilliant innovator who did much to extend the scope and power of the pianoforte. He discovered effects of richness and fullness which had hardly been dreamed of before, and some of his pieces have almost a sense of orchestral power. Many of them, even the smallest, are based on poetic ideas, though it is supposed that he added the names after they were completed, rather than that ho composed them to illustrate any definite picture. But however that may be, no one has over had any doubt of the wholly satisfying way in which each of these fantasy pieces brings to the hearer's thought the image which its name suggests.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

Welcome to BBC Genome
