CLIFFORD COLLINSON: Coco-nuts on Coral Islands
Most of you at some time or another have shied at coconuts and knocked one down. You know what the shell looks like, and how if you borrow a penknife you can pierce one of the ' eyes and get a drink of ' milk '. And you know-that the kernel is white and quite delicious...
This morning Clifford Collinson is to tell you, if George will let him, how the kernel is dried and broken, and then known as copra, which is exported for commerce. The next time you wash you will probably be making use of copra or coconut, for it is used largely in the manufacture of soap.
Today's talk is to be about coconuts on coral islands. And you will hear what the Solomon Islands are like.
One hopes there won't be a monkey there to throw down a coconut and biff George in the eye.

The cavalcade of flowers in the London parks, in their unending procession of colours, from crocuses of early spring to dahlias of late summer, has won international fame, and this evening Mr. C. H. Middleton is bringing to the microphone the man to whom the credit is due. Through the medium of the London parks, Mr. T. Hay, Superintendent of the Royal Parks, is constantly introducing new and interesting flowers to the public. And he is to discuss some of the novelties that he recommends for this year's gardens.

Most of the music of Balfour Gardiner known to listeners was composed prior to the War, but a number of his works remain in the repertory and increase in popularity. This overture, remodelled from a comparatively early work, was performed for the first time in May, 1911, at Queen's Hal!, and has since become a familiar item in concerts of British music. Balfour Gardiner studied partly in Frankfort, and was there the colleague of Norman O'Neill. Roger Quitter,
Cyril Scott and Percy Grainger. He has always been very active in the interests of British music, and an older generation will remember with gratitude the important series of orchestral concerts devoted to the compositions of British musicians which he gave some twenty years ago. Sir Alexander Mackenzie, by reason of his long association with the Royal Academy of Music-he was its Principal for thirty-six years, retiring in 1924-exercised a very powerful influence, not only on the generation now in its maturity, but on a younger school of composers and executives actively practising today. Sir Alexander's crowded life has witnessed the progress of British music from the days when the influence of Mendelssohn was all-pervading, to the present day when British composers take their rightful place in the esteem of the world. To this status Mackenzie has contributed invaluably.

(First performance in this arrangement)
Cyril Scott is one of those versatile people who win distinction in more than one field ; he is a composer, poet and author. Bom in Cheshire in 1879, Scott studied under Knorr at Frankfort, where he had as fellow students Roger Quilter , Percy Grainger , and Norman O'Neill. On completion of his studies. he returned to England and lived for a time in Liverpool, earning a livelihood as a teacher and pianist.
Scott's first important orchestral work, Heroic Suite, was played at
Liverpool as well as Manchester, with ' Richter conducting, and not long afterwards his Pelleas and Melisande was given its first performance in Frankfort.
In his early days Scott was lookeJ upon by frowning professors ci harmony as one of the enfants terrible s of English music because of his use of certain dissonant chords—ethe ' English Debussy' someone christened him. But now, apart from his bigger works, he is known as a composer of many charming songs and piano pieces, which are as beautifully written as they are poetic in feeling.
In some ways less definite'
English than that of most of liis contemporaries, his music is very individual and modern, without any of the more startling effects of dissonance that so many contemporary composers favour.

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.
