'Trade ties the World together!
EILEEN POWER
(Professor of Economic History in the University of London)
Last week Professor Eileen Power told you how the Barbarians, settling down in Europe, became civilised, and built up between A.D. 1000 and 1500 a great culture. Today she is to tell you how trade tied the world together. She will describe the great trade routes between East and West: the land road from China across Central Asia to the Black Sea, and the sea road from China to India, and then across the Indian Ocean and by land over Persia or Egypt to the Mediter ranean. So for a time peace and prosperity came hand in hand with silks and spices to a Europe that had grown weary of incessant war.

In 1906 William Yeates Hurlstone died at the age of thirty. He had already proved himself a highly gifted composer and one of the most promising of the younger British school. Hurlstone's first work was a set of ' Five Valses ' for piano, which were published when he was only nine years of age. At eighteen he won a scholarship at the Royal College of Music and studied composition under Stanford for several years. Among Hurlstone's handful of chamber music, for which branch of composition he possessed a distinctive flair, is the early D minor Violin Sonata, which is a graceful piece of writing and a charming piece of music.

Series VI: Chords that Matter
Sir WALFORD DAVIES , C.V.O., Mus.Doc.,
LL.D.
The aim of this series of talks is to study the qualities and behaviour of certain chords, particularly the four important chords that dominate the harmonic structure of classical music and of much modern music. Many listeners if asked to differentiate between a given two chords would probably say vaguely that they sound very much alike. The question therefore arises: will the ear of the plain man eventually be able to distinguish chord from chord as it distinguishes word from word in poetry ? This evening Sir Walford Davies is to show how chords differ in nature and effect.

: Act II of Wagner's Opera 'Götterdämmerung'

Relayed from The Royal Opera House, Covent Garden
Scene: An open space on the shore in front of the Hall of the Gibichungs
Cast in order of appearance
Conductor: Sir THOMAS BEECHAM, Bt.
Producer: Dr. OTTO ERHARDT
Chorus Master: ROBERT AINSWORTH
At the beginning of The Dusk of the Gods, the last drama in the cycle, the Ring has come into the possession of Siegfried, but the Nibelung race are still scheming to win it back from him. Hagen, the son of the Nibelung Alberich, who first stole the gold and fashioned the Ring, is a mighty warrior, head of the clan of the Gibichungs, and possessed of some of his race's magic lore. When the curtain rises on the stately hall where he reigns, he is himself sitting on guard. Alberich rises from the earth and urges on him the need of every cunning guile to secure the Ring. The music of this scene is sombre and mysterious. Then a beautiful orchestral passage heralds daybreak, and Siegfried enters.
In the first Act, Hagen had robbed him of his memory, by a magic potion, which blotted from his mind all thought of Brunnhilde, the wonderful Warrior Maiden whom he had found asleep on the rock and had won as his bride. Now he is to wed Gutrune, Hagen's sister, and is to give Brunnhilde as wife to Gunther, the Gibichung's brother. With the blowing of a mighty trumpet, and a loud call from his own strong throat, Hagen summons his vassals to bid Gunther and Brunnhilde welcome as they reach the hall.
Brunnhilde, seeing Siegfried, is horror-struck by his treachery, knowing nothing of the guile that brought it about, and there is a dramatic scene where first Siegfried, and then Brunnhilde, swear on the point of Hagen's spear that what they do is in good faith. Hagen's plot succeeds; he makes Gunther and the vassals understand Siegfried's treachery, and they all agree that it demands the hero's death. Briinnhilde, too, condemns him as false.
The Act closes with joyous music for the twofold bridal of Siegfried and Gutrune, and Gunther and Brunnhilde. But the grim theme, known as the 'Motive of Murder', breaks in on the jubilant notes and it is to its foreboding sound that the curtain falls.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
