: Industrial Britain

'Its People at Work'-I
A Discussion between
Professor JULIAN HUXLEY , Professor JOHN HILTON and Professor J. A.
SCOTT WATSON
THIS is the initial broadcast of a new series of which the intention is to put before listeners modern conditions in British industry. In describing what he has seen and heard in his two-thousand-miles tour of industrial centres, Professor John Hilton will aim at piecing his experiences together in such a way as to present a picture of the ' people at work '. For all that concerns them has been the main object of his tour-their surroundings, incentives and rewards, the machines and processes they operate, the effect of their woik on their health, and of their health on their work-a factor that has so often in the past been forgotten by employers.
Professor Hilton, Professor of Industrial Relations in the University of Cambridge, will open this series with a conversation between himself and two Other distinguished men who have also recently made a tour of Britain with similar objects in view ; Mr. Julian Huxley, fresh from his visits to Scientific institutions, and Professor Scott Watson , fresh from his visit to agricultural and fruit growing areas. Their talk this evening will be on the bearing of their three several investigations, one on another. A valuable guide to these talks be found in the illustrated pamphlet written by Professor Hilton, obtainable from the Publications Department, B.B.C., or from any local B.B.C. Office, price 6d., 7d. post free.

THE happy inclusion of ' Afrique ' in this very representative programme draws renewed attention to the success of the experiment ' First Time Here,' from which items so many artists of genuine talent have been discovered for broadcasting. ' Afrique ' opens his act with a Zulu song before giving clever impersonations of various film stars. Sterndale Bennett and Fred Gregory are a popular combination, but it may be news to listeners to learn how they first came together. Both happened to appear at the same concert, and, as luck would have it, both had arranged to sing the same song. Instead of quarrelling or tossing up for it, Bennett, sang the first verse, and Gregory the second, and they have been together ever since. Other favourites to appear in this programme are Jeanne de Casalis in yet another amusing ' Mrs. Feather ' episode ; Ronald Gourley , idolised in the Children's Hour ; and Toots Pounds, now a successful opera singer, who last broadcast in Waltz Time on September 8 and 9 ; it is testimony to her versatility that she also broadcast in ' Music Hall 'the same week.

: A Recital

ROSE WALTER (soprano)
BEATRICE HARRISON (violoncello)
(in German)
' A DREAM OF SPRING ' is from the song-cycle ' The Winter Journey '. The traveller has dreamt of spring and her flowers, but cock-crow wakes him to the dark and freezing winter morning. ' Night and Dreams ' is a song in praise of the sacred peace of night and the quiet dreams it brings with it.
' Ever fainter grows my slumber ', a great favourite with singers, is a lament of one who is dying heart-broken. A mood of drowsiness and a restrained passion pervade the lovely music. Of ' Geheimnis ' one critic said that it represented for him ' the most exquisite scent of lilies in the moonlight '. The music has the character of a lullaby.
(At the pianoforte,
MARGARET HARRISON )
OXE of the most beautiful contributions to the modern repertoire of 'cello music is Dclius's Sonata for 'Cello and Piano, which was written in 1927. Not only is it fine 'cello music, but it is perhaps the best chamber work that Delius has composed. Consisting of three linked movements, it is a model of compression and full of expressive harmonic colour. One feels that the closing passage in the late Philip Heseltine 's monograph on the composer aptly describes the spirit of this lovely sonata. Referring to Delius's music as a whole Heseltine says :
' The message of his music is one of ultimate assurance and peace. It is full of a great kindliness which makes us feel akin to all things living and gives us an almost conscious sense of our part in the great rhythm of the universe. And as the lonely soul turns to the starry host for comfort and companionship, so may we turn to this music and hear reverberated in the tones of a lonely singer " the voices of the innumerable multitudes of Eternity " '.

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.
