: All in the Pay's Work-4

By a Pathologist,
D. STARK MURRAY , M.B., Ch.B.
Previous talks in this series have described the frenzied life of a news-reel cameraman, the arduous life of a coal-miner, and the athletic life of a professional footballer. But excitement and danger are by no means confined to such active jobs. A pathologist works within four walls, but at any moment he may have to make a decision on which the life of some patient in the hospital depends. And in making his tests he himself may run risks of serious infection. A germ may enter some small cut on his finger, and constant precautions have to be taken to guard against this danger.
This evening the Pathologist at the L.C.C. Group Laboratory, Archway Hospital, describes the many kinds of activities that make up his day's work.

THE STRATTON
STRING QUARTET:
George Stratton (violin) ; Carl Taylor (violin) ; Watson Forbes (viola) ;
John Moore (violoncello)
JOHN ARMSTRONG (tenor)
Robert Franz was born at Ha!le within a week or two of the Battle of Waterloo, and died in 1892. He is considered one of the most important composers of German Lieder, and though his songs are sung today with less and less frequency, the listener will be able to trace in these often beautiful songs the germ of the more highly developed modern Lieder
Franz wrote over two hundred and fifty songs. Mendelssohn, as did Schumann, praised the early songs of Franz very warmly, but was not so nppreciative of the later ones, which he complained lacked melody. The charm of these songs lies not only in their unaffected simplicity and naive emotional content, but in their ingenious and imaginative workmanship.
QUARTET
Symphony in C J. C. Bach
1. Allegro con spirito; 2. Minuetto
Kentucky.................John Moore
Johann Christian Bach , one of the sons of the great Bach, lived most of his adult life in England and was known as ' The English Bach '. He was a musician of exceptional attainment and wrote a deal of music which more than holds its own with that of the period. Indeed, Mozart thought highly of his instrumental symphonies and studied them to very good purpose.
Mozart first came in association with Bach on his first visit to London in 1764. Bach took a great interest in this youngster of eight years old, and actually fixed up a concert for him in which they played a sonata together and a fugue, as a sort of double piano turn. Bach died in 1782 at the age of forty-six

Country Girls in London
An Appeal on behalf of THE CENTRAL COUNCIL FOR THE SOCIAL WELFARE OF GIRLS AND WOMEN IN LONDON, by the Rev. H. R. L. SHEPPARD , C.H., D.D.
Few realise how much of London's work is done by girls from the country. Many of them arrive without knowing anyone to whom they can turn for friendship or advice.
The Central Council (a Union of all societies concerned with girls in London) is there to help them. They have only to get in touch with the Central Information Bureau, a friendly little office in Victoria Street, and explain their needs or difficulties to be sure of sympathetic advice.
More than 10,000 girls from every part of England and Wales, Scotland and Ireland, have used this office; they have been told of clubs for their leisure, of safe lodgings within their means, sometimes of shelter in emergency, and have been helped with information and advice of every kind.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to [address removed]

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.
