: Mrs. ARTHUR WEBB : Preserving Wild Fruits

SIDE by side with the professional canning industry goes on the widespread rustic art of fruit preservation, resulting in such blissful delicacies as whortleberry jam and crab-apple jelly. Mrs. Webb will give practical advice on how to catch and then preserve the bilberry, the whortleberry, the sloe, the wild raspberry, the wilder strawberry, the elusive blackberry, and the shy cranberry. This, the first of a series of four morning talks on spare - time cookery, should convert England into a nation of bottlers and jelly-makers. Simple recipes will be given, all within reach of the shortest purse.

: ' Pride and Prejudice,' by Jane Austen

Read by Mr. RONALD WATKINS
MR. WATKIXS resumes his readings today at the middle of Chapter LI
(p. 271, Everyman Edition), and on Thursday at the middle of Chapter LIII (p. 286). The truant Lydia and her dubious Wickham are back in the fold, tracked and re-established by the misjudged Darcy. Mrs. Bennet's drooping spirits, depressed by her youngest daughter's departure, are revived by the news of Mr. Bingley's impending return, and the patient Jane has only a little while longer to wait for her reward and her lover.
Nothing- illustrates better Jane Austen 's mastery as a writer than the skilful certainty with which, in these concluding chapters, she draws together the scattered threads of her story, always without haste, without damage to her characters or to the laws of probability. Her leisured public certainly demanded a happy ending as their undoubted right, but Jane Auston , thanks to her unfailing touch, could give them one without throwing style, standards, and conscience to the winds.

WHETHER Bizet was fond of children or not is difficult to say. If we draw upon the evidence of Carmen we should say not, for most of the characters in that opera are far more likely to have eaten children than to have fondled them. If, on the other hand, we regard this little suite one can at least assume that he thoroughly understood their natures. The music is, however, entertainment for adults, as are so many of those things written ostensibly for, but really about, children. It is none the less delightful, and if the modern child prefers, as he does, Stravinsky and the antics of Prokofiev and Co., the precocity of his appreciation can scarcely be laid at Bizet's door.
DARIUS MILHAUD, at one time one of 'the Six,' is now accepted in France as brilliant rather than precocious as he once was, and like others of the 'Six,' he can look back upon his youthful escapades without finding it either necessary or desirable to repeat them. This work, published in 1923, was composed after Milhaud had served some years in the French Legation in Brazil. In the Saudades he records his impressions of certain dances he heard in Brazil. The work consists of an overture and twelve dances, of which only five numbers, besides the overture, are being played tonight. All the numbers are very short, averaging less than two minutes in performance, but they are brilliantly scored for a comparatively small orchestra. The love of Milhaud and his generation for brass and percussion is here very clearly shown.
MUSSORGSKY wrote surprisingly little for orchestra alone ; an Intermezzo, a March, a Fantasy, and this Scherzo complete the list. He was essentially an operatic composer, even many of his songs are operatic in design and construction. It may be that he felt his limitations in orchestral technique, and it is certain that his powers of orchestrating were not equal to the demands he laid upon them ; indeed, the greater part of his work was revised, and in some cases practically rescored by Rimsky-Korsakov, who thereby incurred the displeasure of the purists of a later date, indeed so late that their anguished outcry can still be heard by those interested in these highly technical controversies.
THE Pride of the Regiment is the play which transplanted direct from a B.B.C. studio to St. Martin's Theatre, has recently closed a successful run. Walter Leigh, who wrote the music for the studio performance and added considerably to his score when it was lifted to the stage, is one of the most promising of the younger - the real younger - British composers. He studied under Hindemith in Berlin, a course which appears to have done him more good than harm, and he is now more interested in theatre music than in any other form of composition. It is this very fact which offers such high hopes for his future.

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.
