From ' When Two or Three', page 69

: ' Commonsense and the Child'

' Fitting in with Family Meals by a Doctor this series, which opened last Friday with a broadcast on ' Weaning ', will be continued every Friday morning until March 23. It concerns the health and welfare of the child between infancy and schooldays-a period when children do not always get the attention they need. Yet this half-way stage is the time when mind and body are growing rapidly and health and character are being made or marred. Meals ; the child who will not eat ; the questions of bones and teeth and colds ; sweets ; rashes and coughs and temperatures ; ventilation ; the temperamental child ; Jill who is afraid of the dark ; Jack who is afraid of nothing and much more to be feared-these are some of the topics to be discussed by a children's doctor.
Practical advice, as well as theoretical ; commonsense hints as well as purely medical ones. Hygiene ; clothes. What to do and how and when to do it. Mothers and nurses and all who have the care of children are advised to have by them the pamphlet published last autumn called ' Choosing the Right Food '. It may be obtained from the Publications Department, B.B.C., or any B.B.C. Office, price 2d, 3d. post free.

Under the direction of Emilio Colombo
Relayed from The Hotel Metropole,
London ALFREDO CAMPOLI was born in Italy in 1906. At the age of four his father, a violinist in the Orchestra Massima, Rome, and also a member of the St. Cecilia Symphony Orchestra, and his mother, a noted prima donna, brought him to England. Campoli's father now gave him instruction on the violin, and after an extended period of study in 1920 Campoli gave his first recital at the Wigmore Hall, and a second one followed in 1923. Of his performance of the andante from Mendelssohn's Violin Concerto in E minor at the second recital an eminent critic said that ' a mature artist of far greater experience might envy the tenderness, the suavity of tone he put into this movement, and four of the Paganini solo Caprices served further to display the young artist's admirable technique.

' The Colonial Empire'
' The Scope and Variety of the Colonial
Empire'
Mr. J. L. EVANS
THE object of this series is to present a picture of the British Empire today and to discover some of its problems. Whereas the autumn was devoted to the Dominions, this series now turns to the Colonies. Many listeners will be surprised to learn that within the Colonial Empire there are fifty distinct Governments and territories covering an area of about two million square miles. Approximately eleven-twelfths of this total area lies within the tropics, and the population shows a bewildering variety of races, religions, languages and customs.
The opening talk this evening will discuss our Colonies and Dependencies outside Africa, and some of the significances of our ' outposts ' of Empire, and some of the problems-constitutional, economic or strategic-will be put before listeners, who should read, if possible, before the talks begin, ' The British Empire,' by Professor R. Coupland , C.I.E., to be obtained from the Publications Department, B.B.C., or from any B.B.C. office, price 6d., 7d. post free. Mr. J. L. Evans , who broadcasts this evening, is a Fellow of St. John's College, Cambridge.

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.
