: 'The Musical Switchback'

Mr. PHILIP THORNTON
THIS WEEK Mr. Thornton will deal with contrasts in music used for religious purposes. He will demonstrate the strange way in which certain absolutely similar melodic phrases are found in-for instance-hymns emanating from such widely separated countries as Wales, China and Albania. You will hear how man appears to have chosen almost identical melodies in his attempts to approach his Deity.

The Woodman, No. 2
CHILDREN will remember going with A. Bonnet Laird on an imaginary country walk three weeks ago, and this afternoon they are to be taken again.
Perhaps snow will be on the ground and then they may be shown the patterns made by wild creatures-the criss-cross made by the feet of birds, the slothlike depressions made by the feet of rabbits.
Or perhaps nature will have painted the landscape with frost, and Bonnet Laird will point out how lovely a picture it can be. Or perhaps it will be one of those mild days when the birds think of nesting, and the first coltsfoot peeps yellow from the verge of the road.
For the spring is coming; in a month it will be here. Three weeks from now your friend, ' The Woodman ', will be telling you about the birds' nests ; some, like the robin's, hidden away in secret places, some, like the blackbird's, big and brazen for all to see.

Mr. ARTHUR ROWE: 'Must it be Cup or League?'
TO win both League and F.A. Cups in the same year is such a rare occurrence, indeed one that has not happened for nearly forty years, that one is apt to wonder whether it will ever be done again. At racing no one, up to last year, was ever going to equal Archer's record, and at racing, football, or anything else, it is never safe to say ' It will never be done again '.
Yet League and Cup have only twice been won by the same club in the same season. In 1888-1889 Preston North End, by beating Wolverhampton Wanderers (3-0) won the Cup without losing a goal, and by heading the League Championship with forty points without losing a match, were the first to pull off the double, which has only, been done once since; in 1896-1897 by Aston Villa. But Arsenal had the hard luck in 1931-1932 to be runners up in the League and to be beaten in the Cup Final.
Arthur Rowe , is centre-half for Tottenham Hotspur, who came up from the Second Division this season and have been rivalling the Arsenal in popularity in North London. They beat Everton, the holders of the F.A. Cup, in the First round.
Rowe is also an English International.

The Right Honourable The Lord
PONSONBY
TONIGHT'S RETROSPECT of the past week will be broadcast by the first Baron Ponsonby, created 1930. Educated at Eton and Balliol, he served in the Diplomatic Service at Constantinople 1894 to 1897; at Copenhagen 1898 to 1899 ; and at the Foreign Office 1900 to 1902.
He has twice sat for Parliament, representing Stirling Burghs as a Liberal, 1908 to 1918, and the Bright-side Division of Sheffield as a Labour member, 1922 to 1930. He was Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Transport, 1929 to 1931, and Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster, 1931.
Besides being a member of the Council of the Royal College of Music, he is the author of many books, and one of them, published in 1929 and entitled ' Casual Observations ', forms a good justification for his talk tonight.

: THE LESLIE BRIDGEWATER QUINTET ELEANOR KAUFMAN

(mezzo-soprano)
HER NAME, and the versatility with which she can sing in other languages than her own, notably German and French, might easily persuade listeners that Eleanor Kaufmann was a visitor to our shores, rather than one of ourselves. But she is English by birth and tradition, and studied her art in this country, too, winning a place for herself among our own singers under her maiden-name of Neville-White.
MRS. (MARJORY) KENNEDY-FRASER spent much time during her life in the islands of the Hebrides collecting the Gaelic folk-songs which had found their last refuge there. Her musical life began at the age of twelve, when she travelled with her father on his singing tours, acting as his accompanist. After his death, she practically devoted herself to collecting, singing and making known the beautiful Hebridean songs which in the collections she published from time to time form her monument. She wrote the libretto for Sir Granville Bantock 's opera, The Seal Woman, the music of which was largely founded on melodies from her collections.
In this song the watcher on the hill sees Kishmul's galley, disabled, coming painfully to haven, battling against wind and wave. At last she wins home to her place beneath the walls of the ancient castle of Kishmul, and then there is ' red wine and feast for heroes, and sweet harping, too '.

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.
