' Possible Careers', No. 3-
' Nursing as a Career', by Mrs. Lucy SEYMER , M.A., S.R.N.
Today it is the turn of the girls. and the career to be discussed is nursing.
Mrs. Lucy Seymer is going to tell you exactly what will lie before you if you decide to become a probationer in one of our general training hospitals, and no one is better able to tell you. She took her degree nt Oxford, served as a V.A.D. in the War, and then went through the three years' training at St. Thomas's Hospital, and so became a qualified nurse. Besides all this practical experience, she has written 'A General History of Nursing ' and has been a lecturer at the College of Nursing. So if you have any ideas about taking up this life, you must listen to all she says this afternoon.

ORCHESTRA
Overture, Rosamunde
A romantic drama of the name of Rosamund, Princess of Cyprus, which got into the hands of Schubert in 1823; at a time when he was fascinated by the idea of writing for the theatre, was at least the cause of his composing the lovely Rosamunde incidental music. The drama itself has disappeared, but the summary of the plot exists, and shows the play to have been the silliest and the most tedious imaginable. The author of it, Madam von Chezy, also wrote the libretto of Weber's unlucky opera Euryanthe, and achieved the distinction of proving very nearly the worst librettist in history.
The play was produced at the Theater-an-der-Wien, and the music at least was a very great success. It consisted of an Overture and ten other numbers, and the whole was composed in five days. After the performances the music was put away in a cupboard and remained there for over forty years, until it was rediscovered by Sir George Grove and Sir Arthur Sullivan on a visit to Vienna. The Overture played tonight is the only part of the music not actually written for the play. It was composed originally for another melodrama, almost equally bad, called The Magic Harp, and was revived for this occasion.

: 'Empire Mail Bag'

A Talk by the Director of Empire and Foreign Services
In the issue of February 16 THE RADIO TIMES inaugurated a new feature called
What the Empire Listener Thinks'. which published letters from listeners in and outside the Empire bearing on the Christmas Broadcast. The page proved so popular that it was decided to continue it, and letters from listeners overseas were featured in our issues of March 23, May 4, and June 22.
Now the idea is to be carried further, and listeners over here are to be kept in touch with listeners all over the world. In far-off places many of us have friends and relatives who hear Big Ben and some of our national events just as if they were in England. Tonight the Director of Empire and Foreign Services is to compere a 'talk' which will be an actual reaction from correspondence from listeners in the Empire to the Empire programmes. It will take the form of an Empire tour, and the letters themselves will be read by members of the Empire Programme Staff. And so the impression will be conveyed that Empire listeners themselves will be speaking to him.

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.
