: ' Design in Modern Life'—III

' The Living-Room '
A Discussion between Mr. EDWARD HALLIDAY and Mr. GORDON RUSSELL
Mr. Edward Halliday , decorative painter and portrait painter, questions Mr. Gordon Russell on the principles of good design in the equipment of the modern living-room. Mr. Halliday has had considerable success in practical interior decoration, while Mr. Gordon Russell is head of a leading firm of modern furniture-makers ; incidentally, he has been responsible for the design of a commercial radio receiver that successfully reconciles the demands of good taste and mass-production. The efforts of our artists and designers to produce a rational distinctive style of decoration and furnishing deserve the closer inspection of all who live in the homes of today; listeners will find this and succeeding discussions full of illuminating and practical suggestions.

Overture, The Siege of Corinth ........ Rossini
Rossini at the age of twenty-eight was already a highly successful composer of operas; he had been at it for nearly ten years and had already to his credit between twenty and thirty operas, many of which, including The Harder of Seville, Tancredi, and The Italian in Algiers, had put him in the front rank of Italian operatic composers. But he did not always bring it off ; some of his operas were failures; one in particular entitled Mahomei II had no success:
Rossini, however, was not a man to waste anything unless he could help it, so when, six years later, he wanted an overture for his opera, The Siege of Corinth, he borrowed it from Mahomet. Both operas are now no more, but the overture, a perfectly good one, keeps their memory alive.
The Beni Mora Suite, which Hoist wrote more than twenty years ago, records his impressions of a holiday spent in Algeria. The Eastern idiom, therefore, was obtained at first-hand, and the music bears the genuine stamp of Bedouin melodies. The suite is in three movements; the first two are dance tunes; the third is an impression of Bedouin dancing girls in one of the dancing halls characteristic of a certain street in Biskra. The monotonous tune played on the flute in this number is such as a passer-by would hear coming from any one of the houses in that street.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
