: 'In Trouble'

' The Young Offender '
Lt.-Colonel Sir VIVIAN HENDERSON ,
M.C., M.P. the TREATMENT of young offenders is vitally important for obvious reasons. Are these boys and girls in trouble going to grow up into men and women who can steer clear of it, or are they to get into trouble again ?
Sir Vivian Henderson is to deal this evening with Home Office schools and Borstal. There are two very marked distinctions. The boys sent to the Home Office schools are aged from ten upwards, while those sent to Borstal are aged from sixteen to twenty-one; secondly, those at Home Office schools are not necessarily offenders, but very often boys offended against, who have been removed from bad homes and influences. They are at these industrial schools, learning a vocation, with no stigma attached to :hem.
Both kinds of school are run on public school lines; one house competes against another house; pride, and self-respect, and healthy rivalry are inculcated. Some most encouraging facts, as well as some discouraging ones, have been revealed by the Report of the Commissioner of Prisons for 1932, just published.
As an example of the good work that is being done by Borstal, the renovation of two closed prisons has been carried out by the lads of two institutions. They have been taken to work each Monday by road and brought back on Friday night. Under these novel conditions they have undertaken painting, carpentry, pointing, and so forth, with the greatest success and in good spirit.

THE B.B.C. SYMPHONY
ORCHESTRA
(Leader, ARTHUR CATTERALL )
Conducted by FELIX WEINGARTNER
FELIX WEINGARTNER , who has been for fifty years, and is still, a figure of major importance in European musical activities, is one of the dwindling band who can look back to the inspiring guidance of Liszt in the great Weimar days. He was only twenty-one when his first opera, Sakuntala, was produced there. He was given his first part as conductor in the same year, at Konigsberg. From there he advanced, by way of Danzig, Hamburg, and Mannheim, to become, at the age of twenty-eight, conductor of the Royal Opera, and the Royal Symphony Concerts, in Berlin. In 1907 he succeeded Mahler as director of the Hofoper at Vienna, retiring in 1910, though he still had charge of the Symphony Concerts of the opera orchestra. During these years he was steadily winning distinction as a conductor all over Europe and America, and for a long time now has been looked up to as one whose readings of the great classics-of Beethoven especially-are authoritative. He has found time, even in the midst of so strenuous a career, to compose much himself-some eight operas, five symphonies, choral and chamber music, and many other orchestral and instrumental pieces, and several volumes of songs. His literary work, too, is both voluminous and important, ranging from the treatise on conducting to his own autobiography, this last a book of distinctive charm. As Edler von Miinzburg, he holds rank equivalent to a baronetcy in this country.

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.
