PERCY UNDERWOOD (baritone)
A Midsummer Night's Dream overture, written when the composer was only seventeen, is as sparkling and, indeed, as mature a piece of music as was ever written by a composer, old or young. Music apart, how the intelligence to appreciate the finer points in Shakespeare's play should have been present in one so young is a problem no one has been able to fathom. The score was conceived, quickly written and ready for performance in the space of a few weeks. There was no hesitation in its composition, and its total absence of any suggestion of toil or experiment would seem to constitute a complete definition of inspiration.

The Practice and Science of Gardening-7
' Friends and Foes of the Garden'
F. W. COSTIN
Insects that are vegetarians are foes because they will eat your plants -caterpillars, wire - worms, earwigs, Colorado beetles (that destroy potatoes). Insects that are meat-eaters are friends because they live on the enemy. Hover flies, so named because they hover over flowers in the sunshine, and lacewint/ flies, that close their wings at rest, are the parents of grubs that are excellent friends.
The ladybird is to be cherished, for she and her grubs eat aphides or green Hies that suck the sap from your roses. But one regrets to say our old friend the Daddy-Long-Legs is no friend to gardeners.
Today, in his last talk this term,
Mr. F. W. Costin is to tell young gardeners about friends and foes.

CHERRY KEARTON
'The Hedgerow'
It is a great thing to learn to appreciate the beauties of the countryside, for to be interested in wild life, whether of plant or bird or ' little beastic ', to find out about it, to understand it, to sympathise with it, is a never-failing source of pleasure and enhances life a thousandfold.
Nature appeals to us in thousands of ways, every one of which can be known and loved. Ruskin said : ' The greatest thing a human soul can do in this world is to see something and tell what it saw in a plain way.'
This is what Mr. Cherry Kearton will try to do when he talks this evening about the lives of the creatures of the hedgerow.

The Piper of Aril, by Duncan Campbell Scott
10.50 QUARTET (First Performance)
Felix White 's debut as a composer was made at the Promenades with an Overture, ' Shylock '. A tone-poem, ' Astarte Syriaca ', was performed at Queen's Hall by the London Symphony Orchestra, under the composer's direction, and a ' Meditation ' and ' Two English Dances ' have been given at Bournemouth. Among his works for string orchestra that have had several broadcasts are a Suite, ' Cakes and Ale ', and a Serenade, ' To Miranda '. Naturally, as a pianist, Felix White has not neglected the instrument of his choice, for he has written six suites and about a hundred pieces for piano.
That Felix White has ranged far and wide over the whole field of English poetry, particularly among ' the lovely that are not beloved ', is shown in his songs, numbering about 250, of which close on a hundred are published. Felix White 's chamber music includes a trio for oboe, viola and piano, ' The Nymph's Complaint for the death of her fawn ', and a quintet, ' Four Proverbs ' (two works which gained Carnegie Awards in 1922 and 1925 respectively), a piano trio, a string quartet, a sonata for 'cello and piano, and the quartet now to be performed, which is his most recent work, and was specially written for the Lyra Quartet.

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.
