: 'THE CHANGING FACE OF NATURE '—II

Professor JAMES RITCHIE , D.Sc. (Professor
- of Natural History in the University of Aberdeen): 'Yesterday's Creatures: Going and Gone'
(From Aberdeen)
THIS is the second in a series of talks which sets out to describe some of the everyday facts of natural history and to interest listeners in the urgent practical problems which arise from man's ' civilised interference ' with wild life. For example, there is the extermination in the past of entire species of animals at the hands of mankind. But that is a process that is by no means the monopoly of the history books. Our own day sees the same forces still at work in the effort of man to be for ever reshaping nature to his own ends. In this talk Professor Ritchie will tell listeners something of those changes which are occurring almost in front of their own eyes. The present generation may indeed see the last of many of the most interesting wild creatures-in Great Britain, at least. All these talks, by the way, will be built on common facts, such as may be observed by anyone who .uses his eyes in walking in the country or by the sea. They have been ananged more particularly to meet the wishes of country-dwelling listeners. Townsmen, however, especially if they are nature lovers, will find them no less interesting or valuable on that account.

: 'HERE AND NOW Mr. GERALD BARRY

N 0 regular visitor to the microphone can count upon a warmer welcome from the general body of listeners than Mr. Gerald Barry , Editor of The Week-End Review. His clear, scholarly views on various public affairs, no less than the equally clear manner in which they are presented, and his happy gift of ' the personal touch ' in broadcasting, have long been a source of pleasure to thousands.

: Chamber Music

DOROTHY MOGGRIDGE (Pianoforte)
THE SPENCER DYKE STRING
QUARTET: SPENCER DYKE (Violin); TATE GILDER
(Violin); BERNARD SHORE (Viola);
CEDRIC SHARPE (Violoncello) yAUGHAN WILLIAMS has composed but little chamber music and only one string quartet. This was written in '1909, and, characteristically, remained in manuscript for twelve years before it was revised and published. Vaughan Williams had, just before the composition of the quartet, been in Paris, studying with Maurice. Ravel, a man a year or two younger than the Englishman, but with perhaps a more clarified technique, and it is said that the influence of Ravel on Vaughan Williams is shown here and there in the quartet. That is a narrow and erroneous assumption. The rank of Vaughan Williams in England is as high as that of Ravel in France and if either learned from the other, why, so did Haydn and Mozart. ' It was from Haydn,' said Mozart, 'that I first learned the true way to compose quartets.' In the matter of the relations of great men, high and established precedent is very often a complete answer.

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.
