From page 81 of ' When Two or Three '

: Other Harvests: 10: The Flying Fish Industry in Barbados

Sir Algernon Aspinall, C.M.G., C.B.E.
This morning's talk is to be given by an accepted authority on matters West Indian, and will deal with a little-known industry, and no doubt again raise the controversy: How does a flying-fish fly?
Sir Algernon Aspinall has paid a number of visits to Barbados and other West Indian Colonies. He has for many years been Secretary to the West India Committee, the oldest colonial body in the Empire; and he is the author of a standard work, 'The Pocket Guide to the West Indies' the latest edition of which has been described as 'an up-to-date encyclopaedia in miniature concerning a part of the world that is attracting an increasing number of visitors year by year '.
Listeners will remember his talk on the West Indies in the Colonial Empire series a year ago, when he renewed acquaintance with broadcasting that dated from the days of 2LO.

British History-6
' The Great Trek'
RHODA POWER
In the early part of last century the Boer settlers in Cape Colony became dissatisfied with British government, particularly when they were forced to emancipate their slaves ; and, finally, in 1835, they left their farms to trek northward to set up independent republics. In the manifesto they published these words occurred :-
We despair of saving the country from the evils which threaten it in the turbulent, dishonest conduct of vagrants..... We complain of the severe losses which we have been forced to sustain by the emancipation of our slaves..... We complain of the continual system of plunder which we have ever endured from the Kaffirs..... We quit this country under the full assurance that the English government has nothing more to require of us, and will allow us to govern ourselves without its interference in future.'
In today's talk Rhoda Power will describe these voortrekktrs and their adventures.

Relayed from
The Winter Garden, Eastbourne
After a highly successful visit to England in March, 1884, and another later in the .year, Dvorak was assured of the esteem and affection of the English people. When he came again in 1890 he was naturally invited to conduct at a concert of the Philharmonic Society. For this occasion he had brought the score and parts of a new symphony which was exceedingly well received. This was the fourth symphony (Op. 88 in G), one of his most delightful works, brimful of lovely melody and scored with those transparent orchestral colours that infallibly proclaim the hand of Dvorak.
No other composer has ever come so near to Schubert's ' linked sweetness long drawn out' and this Symphony is one of the most Schubertian of all his works.

: THE WESTERN STUDIO ORCHESTRA

Leader, FRANK THOMAS
Behind MacDowell the composer can always be heard MacDowell the poet. All his smaller pieces were written to express some thought, picture or feeling that, having its origin in poetry, could have found equal expression in the few lines of a lyric. The very titles arc suggestive, and make no promise that the music does not carry out. MacDowell loved Nature, preferred to have his dwelling in the. woods, and lived the life of a dreamer and idealist whenever his duties left him free to do so. Actually, he was a busy man, and, both practically and by example, gave considerable impetus to the progress of American composition and musical culture.

'Fifty to One'
The popularity of A. J. Alan continues with his anonymity. But there is more than human curiosity to account for it. He is about as good at his job as anyone can be, and never overdoes a good thing. In fact, it is often said that he does not come to the microphone often enough. Listeners' letters guessing that he is the Chief Announcer, the Zoo Man, or John Tilley arrive with the same unfailing regularity as those asking when he will next broadcast.
A. J. Alan will broadcast again in the Regional programme on Friday night

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.

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.
