: The Mother's Health

By a Doctor
This morning, and each Friday morning this month, a doctor is to talk on the mother's health both before and after the birth of her child. Here is something on which the future of the individual family depends as well as the future of the nation. Carelessness, neglect, above all ignorance may end at the best injuriously, and at the worst fatally, to both mother and child.
Friday's talks next month are to concern the feeding of the child, both before and after weaning; and talks on infant welfare will continue on these mornings until Christmas.
At 11.0 London National (261.1 m.) will radiate Television. Programmes on page 600

Symphony No. 1, in C
1. Adagio molto, Allegro con brio; 2. Andante cantabile con moto ; 3. Minuetto e Trio; 4. Finale: Adagio, Allegro molto e vivace
It is an understood thing that some time during every season of Promenades the whole nine Beethoven symphonies shall be performed-not, however, necessarily in chronological order.
This programme contains two of them, the first and the monumental fifth. Beethoven is thought to have begun his first symphony when he was about twenty-five, but he was thirty before it was first performed in 1800. The music seems simple and straightforward enough to us now, but in those days it was considered by the critics to be daringly modern. The introduction upset them to start with, for Beethoven had been a little unconventional in the matter of keys, running through three of them in the first three bars. But it is all very jolly music, though not of course mature Beethoven.
ROBERT EASTON AND ORCHESTRA
Arias (Fidelio)
I. Life is nothing without money; 2. Ha! What a day is this!
The plot of Beethoven's one opera, Fidelio, is this: Florestan is unjustly held in confinement by his enemy Pizarro, a prison Governor. In his dungeon he is being starved to death, when his wife, Leonora, discovers where he is. Disguised as a boy, and calling herself Fidelio, she secures a job as assistant to the Gaoler. The Minister of Justice, Fernando, hearing rumours of unjust imprisonment, announces his intention of visiting Pizarro. The Governor determines to do away with his enemy Florestan at once and is on the point of stabbing him, when Fidelio, armed with a pistol, saves her husband's life. Trumpets are heard, the Minister arrives and all is well.
The first of these two arias is sung by Rocco, the gaoler. His daughter Marcelline is enamoured of the disguised Fidelio, who dare not reveal her identity as Leonora, and has to pretend to acquiesce in a proposed betrothal of the young people. Rocco is quite in agreement with the suggestion, but not without warning the pair that though love is well enough, money is all important. He delivers his little philosophical homily in this song.
The second aria is sung by Pizarro towards the end of the Prison Courtyard Scene in Act i. He has just had word that the Minister, suspicious of the treatment meted out to prisoners, is coming in person on a visit of inspection. Pizarro decides to take immediate action and dispose of his hated enemy Florestan, who is anyhow thought to be long dead, before the arrival of the Minister. He gloats in his triumph over the prisoner and the thirst for vengeance he is about to satisfy.

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.
