SIR PERCY HURD , M.P.: 'Homes for Rural
Workers'
This series of housing talks has. concentrated attention upon the shortage of houses in the towns and the essentially urban problem of the slums. A recent debate in the House of Commons showed the different nature of the rural housing problem. The declining population of the countryside demands houses at rents lower than the town slum-rents. Sir Percy Hurd puts the facts of the position and discusses the solutions in sight.

SAMUEL DUSHKIN (Violin)
IGOR STRAVINSKY (Pianoforte)
The process of Stravinsky's musical development has been rather uncommon since he began as a Romanticist, encouraged no doubt by the influence of Rimsky-Korsakov, with whom he studied, with a leaning towards realism which gradually dominated his entire outlook, and then finally within the last few years Stravinsky has repudiated all his old aesthetic ideals and become what is known as a neoclassicist, that is to say, he is now solely interested in music as music and not as an illustration of literary ideas or as an expression of emotion. Stravinsky does not believe in being hampered with rules other than those he cares to lay down for himself: dissonance and consonance are merely relative terms to him and, therefore, he will use the most ' advanced ' discord or the most obvious concord, according to the effect he feels to be necessary.
In this interesting Stravinsky concert we have examples of the two later phases of the composer's development. The numbers from The Nightingale (transcribed by the composer in collaboration with Samuel Dushkin ) show the composer shedding his romantic skin ; and in the Duo Concertant, which is neo-classical in style and aims at being ' pure ' music, each movement is designed on archaic lines. The Suite on Themes by Giambattista Pergolesi is interesting for the way in which Stravinsky treats the themes of this celebrated and prolific eighteenth-century Italian composer.
Tickets may be obtained from [address removed], and the usual agents. Prices: 12s., 9s., 6s., 4s., 2s. 6d. (including Entertainments Tax). Three further transcriptions, and the second performance of the 'Duo Concertant,' are included in the portion of the programme which will not be broadcast. a similar entertainment in Paris. Then across the Atlantic to Buenos Aires to the exciting Argentine, where the tango and the rumba set the pace.

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.
