: THE B.B.C. MIDLAND ORCHESTRA

Leader, Alfred Cave
Conducted by H. FOSTER CLARK
The Thieving Magpie is a comic opera and was produced in Milan in 1817, and in London four years later, where it became very popular. The Overture is more simple in construction than most of Rossini's other overtures : it consists of two sections, the first in a rather majestic rhythm of martial character, and the second is based on a fast three-in-a-bar melody, which is typical of the composer's style.

The Practice and Science of Gardening-4
' Sowing the Seeds '
C. H. MIDDLETON
This afternoon Mr. C. H. Middleton is to talk to you about sowing the seeds, and about something even more important-thinning the seedlings out.
It's a common fault to sow too thickly ; in fact, it is almost impossible to sow thinly enough. And if the seedlings come up in their abundance you are apt to be delighted, and if they are the kind you can't with advantage transplant, it seems such a shame to pull half of them up and throw them away.
But if you want strong plants and fine flowers you have got to be cruel to be kind. Because, crowded, your seedlings won't grow whether they are candytuft or carrots. They will be dwarfed and sickly and cramped.
And if you transplant, have your ground prepared first so that the small plants are not wilting while you get it ready, and half dead before you put them in. There is a right way and a wrong way to do that, and Mr. Middleton will tell you which. He is to talk to you also about ' selected strains of vegetables ' and of ' seed ' potatoes, which you don't buy in a thin envelope like poppy seeds.

: World History-4

' Byzantium, the Half-way House '
EILEEN POWER (Professor of Economic
History in the University of London)
Today you are to hear about Byzantium' the Greek City on the Bosphorus of which Constantine the Great made a capital in A.D. 324. Then it became Constantinople, and was the centre of Greek civilisation for the next thousand years.
You will hear how the Byzantine
Empire kept alive the ancient civilisation of the Roman Empire, how it converted and civilised the barbarians in the west of Europe, and guarded it against invaders from the east .
Byzantine art and architecture flourished until the fall of Constantinople in 1453. All the influence of the East is to be seen in its style, for the Roman builders had been taught bv the Syrians. Coloured marbles, mosaics composed of glass cubes, translucent enamel and precious stones were notable in their decorations.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
