RECEPTION TEST
2.5 ' Life and Work'
' Soya Beans in Manchuria '
JOHN C. STEELE , M.A., D.Litt.
Before the Emperor Huang-Ti built the Great Wall of China, more than two centuries before the Christian era, the Chinese were cultivating the Soya bean. It was not introduced into the United States until little more than a hundred years ago; only in the last twenty years has its importance been realised by the western world. It is used, among other things, for hay, pasture, oil and oil meal, and human food. To give an example of the industry it has created in China, Manchuria exported nearly a million and a half tons of beans in 1926, and a hundred and sixty-five thousand tons of oil.
Dr. Steele has spent many years in China and has had some amazing experiences among bandits and the peace-loving peasantry. Today he is to tell you about Manchuria, about its geography and climate, about its inhabitants, its difficulties and progress, its railways and products-and especially about Soya beans.

'Beethoven'
D. F. TOVEY , Mus.Doc.(Reid Professor of Music, Edinburgh University)
(From Edinburgh)
Professor Tovey's keyboard talks on Beethoven's pianoforte Sonatas are undoubtedly one of the most interesting and illuminating series of music talks that have been broadcast. Professor
Tovey takes the unique standpoint that sonata music is more dramatic than theatre music, and this idea has been his principal theme in the discussion, of the significance of Beethoven's sonatas.
Last week Professor Tovey dealt with Beethoven's enormous extension of the range of tonality, or harmony on a large scale, and the difference between modulations that mystify and modulations that define, and the consequences of these differences in dramatic expression. This evening Professor Tovey will give further illustrations of Beethoven's power of climax in harmony, and the mystery, humour, and tragedy implied in the music.

(Section E)
(Led by MARIE WILSON )
Conducted by KEITH DOUGLAS
Keith Douglas, whose first broadcast as a conductor this is, has been for some years Honorary Secretary of the Royal Philharmonic Society, a particularly onerous post. He has been for years conductor of the Bradford City Orchestra and has appeared on the rostrum with the Halle Orchestra. He is, too, an experienced conductor of opera and this season will see him as a conductor with the Carl Rosa Company. This arrangement for concert orchestra of Delius's ' Walk to a Paradise Garden', from his opera A Village Romeo and Juliet, is by Keith Douglas. Sali and Vreli, the unhappy Romeo and Juliet of the opera, go to a neighbouring fair, for the moment happy in each other's company. Anxious to be wholly alone, they leave the fair and walk to the Paradise Garden, which is the name of an Inn close by. The music describes their walk, and though the opera ends in tragedy, this little journey passes in serene and happy communion.

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.
