: ‘Living in Cumberland ’

Mr. WILFRID ROBERTS
(Newcastle Programme)
1 IN HIS TALK this morning
Wilfrid Roberts will leave for a moment the beauty of Cumberland. He will go in imagination to the other end of the county, to the industrial West, where once men and women were happy and prosperous, but where for twelve long years unemployment has hung over the people like a menace.
He is to talk of an isolated industrial district running up to the West of the Lake District, where 10,000, or over thirty per cent. of the population of the county, are out of work. Neither coal nor iron, the two principal industries, has really flourished since 1922. He will deal with some of the reasons, and some of the palliatives, since no remedy seems to exist. Already the hearts of almost hopeless people in villages like Frizington and Cleator Moor, and down to Maryport, have begun to hope again through the work of the Society of Friends. But the clubs they have started here and elsewhere, and the help they are giving, and even a scheme to train miners as poultry farmers, cannot remedy the evil.
Is the land a solution ? If Cumberland had as many men on the land as they have in Denmark, the whole of the 10,000 might be absorbed into agriculture.

: The Foundations of Music

LISZT'S HUNGARIAN RHAPSODIES
Played by LESLIE ENGLAND
Rhapsody No. 8 Rhapsody No. II
IN THE SENSE of ' Foundations ', Liszt's Hungarian Rhapsodies are the models upon which all later composers have based their fantasies, rhapsodies, and other pieces built up from folk melodies. Liszt had a scholar's knowledge and a patriot's love of his native Magyar folk music, and with the idea of preserving as much of it as he could in the most acceptable form he could think of, he selected certain characteristic Magyar melodies and weaved them into a series of brilliant pianoforte works, twenty in all, which he called Hungarian Rhapsodies. Pianistically, the Rhapsodies are difficult and of a very high virtuoso standard, but, musically, they are more than that. Many of them have been scored for orchestra, and these have always been as popular as anything in the orchestral repertory. It is undoubtedly due to Liszt and his Rhapsodies in the first place that we owe our never-fading delight in the rhythmic and fascinating Hungarian folk melodies now so familiar to us.

: The National Character

‘ Modern Industry and National
Character '
Mr. WILLIAM FERRIE
IT is a big jump from the employer of industry to the working man, and there must necessarily be a wide divergence in their points of view. We heard last week an employer's analysis of the problem of the effect of industry on national character, and this evening we are to hear that of William Ferrie , who is an employee in a large engineering works.
William Ferrie 's views may or may not represent those of the majority of his colleagues, or of the working man in general, but they are those of a man who has been employed all his life in industry, and knows where the shoe pinches.
Ferrie will give listeners an account of his day; he will tell them what his workmates are saying and thinking; of the effect of machinery on them, and of the conditions under which they live at home.
Next Monday listeners are to hear the views of a working woman.

: THE EGYPT'S GOLD

The story of the salvage of a million pounds in bullion, told in dramatic form by TERENCE HORSLEY
' In June, 1929, the Sorima Salvage
Company embarked on the most ambitious task they had yet attempted. .... On May 20th, 1922, the liner Egypt, carrying bullion valued at £1,054,000 ... had reached a point 25 miles south-west of Ushant ... a thick fog lay over the water ... A large cargo steamer struck the Egypt ... in twenty minutes the liner was at the bottom of the sea.
' The finding of the wreck was likely to be the most difficult part of the task . , . we could not count on more than ten working days, of four hours each, in a month.
' By noon, on August 30th, 1930, we were certain that the Egypt lay beneath us ... in 66 fathoms (396 feet) of water.'
Extracts from ' Seventy Fathoms Deep ' by David Scott , to whom the author is indebted
Taking part :
David Tennant , James Tovey , Ronald Simpson , Cyril Nash , Robert Craven. Percy Rhodes , Robert Speaight , Edward Craven , Eric Lugg , Wallace Evennett , Matthew Boulton , Geoffrey Wincott , Pascoe Thornton , Adeline Hook.
Production by GORDON GILDARD
NEARLY twelve years ago the P. & 0. liner Egypt was in collision with a cargo steamer, off Ushant. The liner sank, and although a large number of her passengers and crew were rescued, the bullion which she was carrying, which was valued at over a million pounds, went with her to a depth of nearly 400 feet beneath the surface of the Atlantic.
Up to that time divers had never explored depths greater than 200 feet, and even at this depth the amount of work which rubber-suited divers could do was limited. It was some years before a diving shell was designed which permitted diving at even 300 feet, and it was not until 1929 that raising the gold from the Egypt became a feasible proposition.
The story of the Egypt's gold is told by Terence Horsley , author of the play, in an illustrated article on page 623.

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.
