: 'WANDERINGS IN PALESTINE AND CHINA '-II

Miss AMY DRUCKER
MISS AMY DRUCKER is an adventurous
Jewish lady who, like the minstrels of an earlier age, makes her way about the world by the exercise of her art. Literally, she paints to travel, and travels to paint. Now, back from wandering in Palestine, where she lived in Arab and Jewish villages studying native types and putting them on canvas, she paints her experiences to listeners. From Palestine she made her way to China on a dubious Italian boat, the only female European on board. She should be interesting.

PIANOFORTE MUSIC OF SCRIABIN
Played by LILIAS MACKINNON
Prelude in C, Op. 13
Prelude in B Minor, Op. 11 Prelude in D Flat, Op. 31 Prelude in E Flat, Op. 56 Prelude No. 4, Op. 74
Mazurka in C Sharp Minor, Op. 25 Tragedy, Op. 34
Reverie, Op. 49 - Poem No. 1, Op. 52
ALEXANDER SCRIABIN , at one time the most discussed of modern musicians, died in 1915, at the ago of forty-three. At that age he had already passed through the three phases that are said to form the artistic development of every creative artist — the imitative period, the grasping after a separate individuality, and the full maturity of spiritual independence.'
Examples of all three phases are in this first programme of this week's Foundation series... For instance, Opus 13, a set of six preludes, and Opus 11, a set.of twenty-four preludes in the manner of Chopin are openly Chopinesque in feeling. With the indefinite tonality of Opus 31, the first of four preludes, the composer is vacillating between onephase and another, while in the violence of Opus 56, No. 1, he has definitely reached the third phase, further exemplified in the extraordinary fourth prelude of five, Opus 74, wrich was his last composition. The fifth mazurka of nine, Opus 25, is again reminiscent of his youthful idol, Chopin while Opus .34, entitled 'Tragic Poem,' is definitely influenced by Liszt, with whom, technically and spiritually, Scriabin had, in his second phase, much in common. In the 'Reverie,' Opus 49, No. 3, Beriabin casts for a moment all theories aside and is calm, contemplative and feminine, while in ' Poem,' the first of three pieces, Opus 52, with its incessant changes of time-signature, and its consequent clarity of design, the composer is approaching, by way of æsthetic experimentalism, his full maturity.
T ILIAS MACKINNON, who has made a special study of the music of Scriabin, was one of the first pianists in this country to give recitals of his music, and, in the course of a recent recital and lecture tour in America, played the Scriabin Concerto in Boston with the Boston Symphony Orchestra, Koussevitzky conducting. Miss MacKinnon is a native of Aberdeen, Macfairen gold-medallist, pianist, lecturer, linguist, and a teacher who makes a practice of proving that the anything but ornamental music desk on the pianoforte is anything but indispensable.

: OTHER PEOPLE'S LIVES

Mr. MARTIN LINDSAY : A Visit to the Greenland Eskimos '
MR. MARTIN LINDSAY was a member of the British Arctic Air Route Expedition to Greenland in 1930-31, that captured public attention with the five months' solitary observation by Mr. Courtauld, and his thrilling rescue by Mr. Watkins, the leader of the expedition, whose recent death has been such a blow to British exploration. Tire expedition that left England in the summer of 1930 consisted of fourteen men of an average age of twenty-four. They sailed in Shackleton's old ship; the Quest, to the east coast of Greenland, where they built their base. From here parties mapped 800 miles of coast-line and did more than 3,000 miles of inland sledging to obtain observations in the inland ice-plateau.
The members of the expedition naturally came into close contact with the Greenland Eskimos, who taught the explorers how to manipulate their tiny, fast canoes, or kayaks. Mr. Martin Lindsay gives a fascinating picture of the life of these hardy, cheerful little people, the healthiest and happiest in the world. There is a permanent record of the many activities of the Greenland Eskimos in the film NorOiern Lights, which was made by the expedition.

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.
