: 4,000 Feet Above Cape Town

A descriptive commentary from the top of Table Mountain, introduced by The Rt. Hon. the Earl of CLARENDON, G.C.M.G., Governor-General of the Union of South Africa
A new type of descriptive broadcast comes to-day from the fiat-topped Table Mountain that towers 4,000 feet directly above Cape Town. The commentator will give listeners an eye-witness account of the magnificent panorama to be seen from this vantage point. The ascent takes four hours by climbing tracks, and only four minutes by the cable way, which has the steepest and longest single cable within the Empire. For this broadcast a special telephone line has been laid from the mountain face to a point one and a quarter miles back. The party that went up to survey the line route was lost in the mist and rescued with difficulty by a mountain ranger.

LATE NINETEENTH-CENTURY VIOLONCELLO
SONATAS
Played by MAY MUKLÉ (Violoncello) and ANNE MUKLÉ (Pianoforte)
S
It was not until the nineteenth century that the technical possibilities of the 'cello began to be really exploited and a school of fine players came into existence. Furthermore, up to that time few composers—Bach, Haydn, and two or three Italians being notable exceptions-troubled about the instrument to any serious extent. A glance at the scores of any early symphonies or string quartets will show that the 'cello was allowed but little independence, and for the most part in orchestral music merely doubled at the octave the double bass line. However, the Romantic composers, from Beethoven onwards, placed the 'cello on a much higher and more individual footing, and wrote a grent deal of fine music for it. The sonatas of Rachmaninov, Dohnanyi, Roger, Hurlstone, and Hure show the 'cello's complete emancipation and its beauty and range to the fullest degree.

: Some Makers of the Modern Spirit: VIII: Bentham

Jeremy Bentham, like many great thinkers, survives in the memory of men by the teaching of disciples which he would not always have endorsed, and by the fragmentary application of scraps of his thought. The amazing range of his mind is unrealised, his works unread. To those best qualified to judge he is 'the greatest social engineer in history'; the reforms which he initiated and inspired have profoundly modified the law, the penal system, democratic government, the imperial constitution, education, and the theory of language to the form in which they exist today. As an architect of the modern spirit he stands for economic individualism ; the system that, seeking the greatest happiness of the greatest number in the free play of competition in industry, has resulted in modern capitalism.

CARL FLESCH and FREDERIC LAMOND
The chief attraction of this concert is the appearance of Carl Flesch, the famous Hungarian violinist, and Frederic Lamond, the eminent Scots pianist, who, by the way, commenced his career as a violinist. Carl Flesch, who has already broadcast once this week, on Sunday afternoon, was originally the leader of the Queen of Roumania's String Quartet, and apart from his activities as a soloist, he is well known as an editor of excellent editions of Beethoven, Mendelssohn, Mozart, etc., and as a teacher in Bucharest, Amsterdam, and Berlin. Both Flesch and Lamond are noted for 'classical' rather than 'Romantic' interpretations of the old masters, and therefore their rendering of Beethoven's sonatas should be of exceptional interest.
(Tickets may be obtained from [address removed], and the usual Agents. Prices 12s., 9s... 6s., 4s., 2s. 6d., including Entertainments Tax)
(The Kreutzer Sonata will be included in the portion which will not be broadcast)

Mr. HOWARD MARSHALL :
An Eye-Witness account of Housing Conditions in the Leeds Area
Howard Marshall continues his conscience-stirring revelations of housing conditions in the great cities. These talks are arousing tremendous interest and have provoked accusations of inaccuracy from certain quarters. Mr. Marshall is guided, in every district he visits, by the social workers who best know the conditions. He has verified every statement he has broadcast and, when challenged, vindicated himself. He has already broadcast his willingness to have anyone who doubts the truth of what he says conducted over the areas in question.

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.
