: '.BIOLOGY IN THE SERVICE OF MAN '

Sir J. ARTHUR THOMSON , LL.D. : ' Huxley
(1825-1895)—Knight-Errant of Darwinism'
QIR J. ARTHUR THOMSON continues his revaluation of scientific pioneers with an estimate of one of the giants of the evolution controversy—T. H. Huxley. As a boy, Huxley had little formal education, but gained from Carlyle a passion for ' making things plain, and getting rid of cant and shams of all sorts.' His powerful mind attacked the problems of biology without training, but with this passion, and the force of his attack yielded valuable and original results.
When Darwin's ' Origin of Species' was published in 1859, and the 'evolution' controversy raged through England, Huxley fastened on to it with joy and characteristic thoroughness ; it was a case of ranging either witli ' the apes or the angels ' in Disraeli's phrase, and Huxley was one of the few eminent scientists of the time who plumped for Darwin and the apes. He never accepted all the implications of Darwin's theories of ' natural selection,' and ' the struggle for existence '-but Huxley's support, even modified, was of immense value to Darwinism.

Scheherazade, Three Poems by Tristan Klingsor
1. Asie (Asia); 2. La Flute enchantee (The Magic Flute) ; 3. L'Indifférent (Nonchalant Encounter)
THE infrequency of Maggie Teyte 's appearances on the London concert platform, to say nothing of the London stage, is a major cause of discontent amongst the great company of those who, having heard her sing, if even only once, are sworn never to deny themselves the pleasure of repeating the experience whenever the rare opportunity presents itself. Here, then, is an occasion-indeed, a repetition of an occasion
'-for Miss Teyte is singing tonight the same
Ravel cycle she sang so beautifully at the broadcast B.B.C. Symphony Concert on February 17 last.
Maggie Teyte is an Englishwoman, born at
Wolverhampton. At the age of eighteen she had already made a name at the Opéra Comique in Paris, and Debussy chose her to sing Mélisande to an English audience when his opera, Pelléas et Mélisande, was' first staged in London. From that day to this Miss Teyte has never ceased to pay a flawless tribute to Debussy's immaculate judgment.
These verses by Tristan Klingsor (nom de
'guerre of a French poet) are mere impressions woven from gossamer, and are set to music by Ravel with the delicate and subtle beauty of which he is so gifted a master. Asie is a pen picture of the East of the Arabian Nights; La Flûte Enchantée tells of a flute melody that enchants the listener, and in L'Indifférent the poet notes the grace and charm of a stranger who passes him by with remote indifference.

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.
