RECEPTION TEST

: Travel Talk

'Life and Work '—
'Brazil-nuts from the Amazon Forests'
FRANK COLLIER
Travel talks continue. And today Mr. Frank Collier is to tell Schools about the impenetrable forests of the Amazon. The difficulty of travel has been solved by flying, and Mr. Collier will describe some of the difficulties of the residents that remain to be solved-especially the difficulty of floods.
They will hear about the climate, the people, the houses they live in ; about hard times for rubber cultivators, about the castenheira tree, and especially about Brazil nuts. Schoolboys and girls saw plenty of them at Christmas, and probably ate a few. Today they will hear how they are gathered and shipped to Britain and other parts of the world.

Two Episodes from the Kalevala Sibelius i. The Swan of Tuonela; 2 The Return of Lemminkainen
THE KALEVALA is a great Finnish epic poem, running into fifty cantos, and, like all Finnish legend, magic plays an important part throughout. Sibelius, a true Finn, has been considerably influenced by his country's mythology, and he has described in terms of music several episodes of the Kalevala. ' The Swan of Tuonela ' is prefaced with the following description : ' Tuonela, land of death, a hell of Finnish mythology, is surrounded by a river with black waters and a rapid current, on which the Swan of Tuonela floats majestically, singing '. This work is scored for the unusual combination of cor Anglais solo, one oboe, one bass clarinet, two bassoons, four horns, three trumpets, harp, timpani, bass drum, and muted strings. The last-mentioned are divided and sub-divided into many parts forming a rich and picturesque texture of string background. The music is full of mystery and not a little gloom.
' The Return of Lemminkainen ' is a direct contrast to ' The Swan of Tuonela ', since the music is scored, with brilliant effect, for full orchestra, and the tempo is extremely rapid. It is intended to describe the return of Lemminkainen from his unsuccessful expedition against Pohjola.

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.
