Early Stages in German
Lesson I
A. H. WINTER, assisted by M.-E. GILBERT
This course in German, like the experimental one last year, is designed for pupils who have been studying German for some eighteen months. The principal speaker is again Herr A. Hermann Winter, Lecturer in German at the Polytechnic, Regent Street, London, but in order to accustom listeners to various voices, individual broadcasts will be given by Fraulein Margot Berger , Dr. Otto G. Lewald , and Fräulein Mary-Enole Gilbert (who has been assisting Herr Winter on alternate weeks throughout the year). It is hoped to bring some German boys and girls to the microphone.

Ingenious Creatures
CHERRY KEARTON
This evening Cherry Kearton , whose name is almost synonymous with the photography of birds and animals, is to ta!k of the ingenuity of some of the creatures he has photographed. He will say something of the beaver and its engineering propensity for damming a river; of the termite or white ant with its cathedral-like ant-hills; of trap-door spiders and caterpillars in Algeria that move in processions. Cherry Kearton photographed the first natural history film ever shown.

Series 6 : Chords that Matter Sir WALFORD DAVIES
,
C.V.O., Mus.Doc., LL.D.
During the war an unknown major wrote from the trenches : ' If I come out of this, I shall want to know what music is about.' Recently a listener in Africa complained that music on the radio was not enough in his desert waste ; what he wanted was a chat on music with illustrations. Robert Louis Stevenson said that books were no use. ' Do you really know a book that tells a fellow ? '
Before the discovery of broadcasting, the position of music among the Arts was heavily handicapped. There was no ' book to tell a fellow'. '. But a broadcast talk on 'what music is about spoken at the keyboard with instant illustration, is another matter. And when the talks are to be given by Sir Walford Davies , they need no boosting.

: A Pianoforte Recital

by TOBIAS MATTHAY
Tobias Matthay , one of the leading modern masters of piano technique, has also written in his earlier days numerous piano compositions. The ' Thirty-one Variations and Derivations on an Original Theme ' is his last important work before he concentrated his energies on his many books on musical interpretation and piano technique. First written forty-four years ago, the Variations were rewritten later and published in 1918. The Variations are in two parts, the second being the more complex. When the work was first heard it was considered to be harmonically daring, in fact revolutionary, but harmonic innovations soon lose their startling character.

Sir THOMAS BEECHAM , Bt.
Producer, Dr. OTTO ERHARDT
Relayed from The Royal Opera House,
Covent Garden
The villain of the piece in Lohengrin is Baron Frederick Telramund , who, with his lady, Ortrud, plots to seize the lands of Elsa by having her unjustly convicted of her brother's death. The second act begins on the night after Telramund has been defeated in combat by the mysterious Lohengrin, but he is still plotting with Ortrud. Elsa comes out on her balcony above the courtyard where they are, and Ortrud, claiming her compassion, is taken into the castle. Day breaks, and pages, knights and ladies assemble for Elsa's wedding with Lohengrin. A herald announces Telramund's banishment. Still the two conspirators try to sow discord, but are frustrated, and the train passes into the cathedral to the sound of joyous wedding music.

: THE B.B.C. ORCHESTRA

(Section E)
Led by MARIE WILSON
Conducted by FRANK BRIDGE
BEATRICE HARRISON
(violoncello)
Glinka wrote this orchestral piece on two folk-songs (a bridal song, and a snatch of gypsy dance-melody from which the composition takes its name) in 1848 for the Governor of Warsaw's private orchestra. Glinka was the least self-conscious of geniuses (or almost-geniuses). In composing ' Kamarinskaya ' he had no aim deeper than the killing of boredom during an empty winter; actually, he was laying the foundation stone of Russian symphonic music. ' " Kamarinskaya " is astonishingly original', wrote Tchaikovsky. ' From it all the Russian composers who have followed Glinka (including myself) continue to this day to borrow contrapuntal and harmonic combinations directly they have to develop a Russian dance tune..... Glinka managed to concentrate in one short work what a dozen second-rate talents would have invented only with the whole expenditure of their powers.'

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.
