ELIZABETH HALDANE ,
C. H. Here is a delightful talk about childhood days in a cultured Scottish home in Victorian times. A large Adam house in Edinburgh with incredible discomforts. The nursery food, coals, and most of the bath water had to be carried up three long nights of stairs-an ascent watched by five children with the same interest as the descent of the grown-ups in pairs to dinner. A small girl in a white frock and a blue sash, and four brothers, in kilts which she admired but they hated, being permitted presently to go down for dessert.
They had a tutor who kept the boys in order with a leather strap, and the girl with what he called ' palmies '- exceedingly painful. They had a nurse who discussed the affairs of the world with them and planned their careers.
Visits to London and the queer smell of straw in hansom cabs. Sundays in Scotland, where in the country they drove to church in a big barouche. ' The sermon was long and the preacher was prosy ', and adults kept themselves awake with peppermint drops and snuff.
But sheltered as these children were in some respects, they were made to visit their poorer neighbours in health, in sickness, and even in death. They saw around them the evidence of the drunkenness of their times, and received members of the countering temperance movement, who arrived on the lawn with banners bearing mottoes, Wha would hae a drucheri man ? '
It was probably because as a child
Elizabeth Haldane was acquainted with life's hard facts that she became the first woman J.P. for Scotland. She is the author of a number of books, including' The Scotland of my Fathers', published last year.

MIDLAND ORCHESTRA
(Leader, Alfred Cave)
Conducted by LESLIE HEWARD
Tchaikovsky's ' Casse Noisette ' (Nutcracker) Suite contains some of the daintiest ballet music ever written, The whole work is, of course, much longer than the suite, which contains only some of the best numbers, and lasts for a considerable time when presented on the stage. The story of the ballet is taken from
E. T. A. Hoffmann's fantastic fairy-tale, ' Nutcracker and Mouse-King'this Hoffmann being the Hoffmann of Offenbach's opera-and is of a type that seems very much to appeal to Russian artists and audiences. The complete ballet was first produced in St. Petersburg in 1892, and the Suite was introduced to England by Sir Henry Wood at a Promenade Concert in 1896.

ALISTAIR COOKE
This evening Alistair Cooke is to give the third of his talks, which are proving very popular. He knows how to be lively, spontaneous, and amusing and still do his job as a critic.
The Cinema is as well known to him as the Theatre, and he has been studying and lecturing on both in America for the last two years. This summer he has been doing practical work for Charlie Chaplin in his Holly-wood studios, and before leaving he discussed with the great comedian the present series of talks.
Alistair Cooke is one hundred per cent. in earnest. He believes the cinema is as excellent and necessary and apt for our century as Elizabethan tragedy was for the sixteenth.

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.
