VINCENT ALFORD : ‘ London Streets ' rpHE arteries of the great city offer an exciting pattern of moving colour. Life flows along them in apparent confusion, but an unseen organization is controlling the stream, giving it purpose and direction. Coaches, newsboys, policemen, traffic signs—these and countless otjier units are doing something or going somewhere, and in this talk the functions of them all are vividly described.

Sir J. ARTHUR THOMSON , LL.D.: ' Claude Bernard (1813-1878) : One of the Founders of Modern
Physiology '
CLAUDE BERNARD offers the amusing spectacle of a dramatist deflected to a career of scientific research by a dramatic critic. After an apprenticeship in a druggist's shop, Bernard arrived in Paris, twenty-one years old, with a vaudeville comedy, a five-act prose drama and an introduction to Saint-Marc Girardin. The critic persuaded him that man was a more profitable study in the laboratory than on the stage, so Bernard applied himself to medicine at the groat Paris hospital—Hôtel-Dieu, and eventually became the first Professor of Physiology at the Sorbonne. Bernard was a pioneer in the study of the effect of gland fluids on the digestion, and of the secretion of bile in the liver ; and an authority on the actions of poisons. Humanity and the stage owe few major benefits to dramatic critics, but the case of Claude Bernard provides an honourable exception.

IN this act the intricate storv of The Ring is brought to a close.
The ring, made from the gold wrested from the Rhine maidens in The Rhinegold, is now, through a series of adventures, borne on Siegfried's finger, and the curse laid on it by Alberich is about to reach its final fulfilment. Deluded Siegfried, wrought upon by Hagen, the son of Alberich. has betrayed Brünnhilde by marrying her to Gunther, and has himself married Gutrune, little knowing that his own death is to be the next step in Alberich's sinister plan to recover the ring. The first scene is a wild spot by the Rhine, and Siegfried separated from a hunting party encounters the Rhine maidens who warn him of his approaching death. The hunters now enter and all rest, drink and converse, until Hagen treacherously spears Siegfried from behind. In his dying moments, Siegfried remembers his love for Brünnhilde. Siegfried's Funeral March leads into the last scene, the Hall of the Gibichungs. Here, Hagen in his struggle to get the magic ring from Siegfried's finger kills Gunther.
Briinnhilde appears, Siegfried's funeral pyre is prepared and as it burns she leaps upon it, determined thus to be reunited to Siegfried. The Rhine rises, bringing with it the Rhine maidens who recover the ring, while Hagen plunges in after them only to meet his death. In the distance Valhalla is seen in flames in final fulfilment of the curse.

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.
