Its People at Work-6
Professor JOHN HILTON
THIS EVENING Professor John Hilton will talk of nimble fingers and cunning hands. He will compare the craftsman and the skilled manipulator, and show where the hand still beats the machine, and where it has been,displaced by it.
He will talk of machines, of wonder machines, and monster machines, and machine tools. Of the power behind the machine, and of the fiddling work, and boring work, and drudgery that the machine has saved.
He will touch on the capital cost of machinery, and its maximum use ; on the displacement of labour ; on the progressive manager's dilemma, and the way through it.

NICOLAS MEDTNER, one of the foremost of twentieth-century Russian composers, can scarcely be considered as belonging to the post-War movement; indeed, he has often been called ' the Russian Brahms ', and his music is in the direct line of the tradition running through Beethoven and Brahms.
Practically all Medtner works belong to the chamber music genre ; he has written a number of songs, pianoforte pieces, and instrumental works, all constructed for intimate performance.
Although by no means without warmth and fancy, almost all he has written is, in the mind of the composer, absolute music. He writes nothing for the orchestra, since, in these davs of orchestral colour, orchestral works imply almost always a programme ; nor for the stage, for which he appears to have no fondness ; even the music of his songs remains abstract so far as the text permits it. But this is not to sav that his music -lacks poetry and imagination ; on the other hand, they are perhaps its distinguishing feature.
Since the War Medtner has made extensive tours in Europe. He has his own following in this country, and this programme will give pleasure to a great number of musicians who value the preservation of a tradition, which is, in these days, none too much in evidence in the music of modern composers. Medtner was born in December, 1879, and showed himself a brilliant student at the Moscow Conservatoire where, for a short time, he was later to become one of the Professors.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
