From page 99 of ' When Two or Three '

: 'Thinking Aloud' A. G. STREET

THE MANY WHO have read A. G. Street s books or listened to his broadcast talks about Wiltshire and farming have wondered whether he really is a farmer, and how he comes to know so intimately the Wiltshire Downs.
He still lives on these Downs in the old farmhouse where he was born. The rolling country all round it is unchanged, but his primitive old place has survived to see a modern dairy and modern methods of milking. Here A. G. Street farms and writes and plans bis broadcast talks.

one of the most beautiful examples of Elgar's art is the ' Enigma ' Variations, which perhaps more than any other of his works has been the means of spreading his fame abroad. The title ' enigma ' refers to ' another and larger ' theme (a well-known tune) which if played in conjunction with the present theme and the subsequent variations", fits perfectly.
These variations are dedicated ' To my friends pictured. within ', and consequently each variation is prefaced with the initial or nickname of the friend ' pictured '. Referring to this novel idea Elgar says: 'It is true that I sketched fur their amusement and mine the idiosyncrasies of fourteen of my friends, not necessarily musicians, but this is a personal matter, and need not have been mentioned publicly ; the Variations should stand simpiy as a " piece " of music '. However, as one of E! gar's admirers once pointed out, ' We see these friends of his in the light in which they appeared to ElgarBut, as you cannot make a portrait of anybody without also making a portrait of yourself for the eyes that can see it, the real hero is Elgar himself.'

: For Farmers Only JOHN MORGAN

A GREAT NUMBER of farmer listeners by now have come to look on John Morgan as counsellor and friend, as well as interpreter of the countless recommendations they get wholesale, to do this and not to do the other-perplexing and often contradictory advice which requires the most careful sifting.
. It is his aim in these weekly broadcasts to sort out as well as to convey all the current news ; to help his listeners over their increasingly difficult problems, to farm to the best advantage in circumstances that are by no means rosy.
The arrangement still holds good whereby the Daily Herald has released him from his position on that paper as its agricultural correspondent, though he still acts as its consultant. He is thus enabled to carry on his broadcast talks. Let it be again emphasised that if listeners will write to him over any perplexity, however great or small, John Morgan will, where possible, deal with these problems when he comes to the microphone.

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
