'Life Under Water'
E. B. WORTHINGTON , Ph.D.
These talks hitherto have dealt with life on the earth, underground, and in the air, and it is the turn of the fish to come under the microscope this evening. A deliberately chosen term, for Dr. Worthington observes not only with his eyes, but with microscope and scalpel. Post-mortem inquiry into the feeding habits of the fish inhabiting the Vyrnwy Lake, constructed forty-five years ago. has revealed interesting differences between the same species of fish frequenting different parts of the lake. He will discuss this this evening.
To Dr. Worthington fish have the same beauty and interest as animals-perhaps more interest because so little is known about them. He is Demonstrator in the Department of Zoology in Cambridge University and had a distinguished career there. In addition he has undertaken several fishing surveys of the African lakes, and he was awarded the Gill Memorial by the Royal Geographical Society in 1932. In that year he gave a broadcast talk ' Crocodile Island '.

: Chamber Music THE GRILLER STRING QUARTET :

Sydney Griller (violin) ; Jack O'Brien (violin); Philip Burton (viola);
Colin Hampton (violoncello)
DOROTHEA HELMRICH
(mezzo-soprano)
Nobody had much chance of patronising Beethoven—patronising, that is, in the sense of condescension. He was a proud, independent soul, fierily resentful of anything like patronage, yet he had many true patrons among the nobility-Princes and Counts who continually helped him, and at whose houses he was frequently a guest.
One of the chief among these was
Prince Razumovsky, the Russian Ambassador at Vienna during many years. This nobleman formed a String Quartet which he supported, and .;hich became famous. To him Beethoven, then in his prime, dedicated three of his finest String Quartets, of which this is one.
Frank Bridge has produced some of the finest of modem British chamber music. And not only the finest, but the most approachable. He can produce what Sir Walter Scott called ' the big bow-wow stuff ' with anyone, but he can also turn out charming miniatures like the pieces the Griller Quartet is playing tonight.

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.

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