: ' The International Housewife ' Mrs. ANTONIETTA PETTOELLO: Italy '

This week's talk in this fascinating series will be given by the wife of Dr. Pettoello, Lecturer in Italian at Cambridge University and well known to listeners for his share in the recent broadcast Italian conversations. She will describe the routine of the life of a working-class woman in a North Italian city, shopping, cooking, and the care of children, as well as the civic responsibilities that the modern Italian woman is expected to bear.

MARK RAPHAEL (Baritone)
ADILA FACHIRI (Violin)
KATHLEEN LONG (Pianoforte).
Adila Fachiri (nee d'Aranyi) and her sister, Jelly, are great-nieces of Joachim, the famous violin player and teacher of a generation ago. These two girls were naturally among his pupils, and Adila, the elder of the two, was- one of his favourites; she often appeared in public with him playing violin duets. This practice of duet playing has had its sequel in the occasional and delightful association of the two sisters in works for two violins and orchestra by Bach and others. Adila Fachiri has inherited from her great-uncle not only his favourite Strad violin, but his broad, open manner of playing it as well as his veneration for .the classics, which yet permits full licence to his pupil's catholic taste.
Kathleen Long came to London from Bury St. Edmunds at the age of thirteen to study at the Royal College of Music, with which she has been ever since associated, as she is now on the teaching staff. She is very well known to listeners, both as pianoforte soloist and as a chamber music player. Her greatest preference is for the music of Mozart, but Ravel and Debussy also attract her, for, as she says,' they are pianistically perfect, in addition to offering infinite scope for the production of tone colour.' Modern British pianoforte composers owe much to her; she has given recitals of British music abroad, particularly in Brussels and Paris.

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.
