'On Hadrian's Wall'
RHODA POWER
I am living near a bath; sounds are heard on all sides; just imagine for yourself every sort of noise that can offend the ear.' ... Something like that might be written of a modern open-air swimming pool by anyone today, but as a matter of tact it was written by Nero's tutor nearly two thousand years ago.
In this interlude Rhoda Power is to take listeners to a bath used by the Roman soldiers who garrisoned Hadrian's wall that ran across the North of England almost from the North Sea to the Irish Sea, and formed a barrier against raiding Picts. Listeners will hear two soldiers talking and joking together until something happens that gives them nothing to laugh about.

After the failure of his first Symphony in 1897 Rachmaninov got into such a morbid state of mind that, except for one short period of activity, he was unable to do any creative work. Finally, in January, 1900, Rachmaninov submitted himself to hypnotic treatment and he says : ' Although it may sound incredible, this cure really helped me. Already at the beginning of the summer I began again to compose. The material grew in bulk, and new musical ideas began to stir within me-far more than I needed for my concerto.' This was the Second Piano Concerto in C minor, which a year or two previously he had agreed to write for the London Philharmonic Society.

: 'For Farmers Only'

J. A. SCOTT WATSON (Professor of Rural Economy, University of Oxford)
Professor Scott Watson has been giving the Farmers' talks since April. As a young man he studied under Professor Robert Wallace at Edinburgh University and took a degree in Agriculture. He studied for a year at the Royal Agricultural College, Berlin, and for a year in America, at Iowa State College of Agriculture. But he is more than a farmer in theory, 'he is a farmer in practice, managing on behalf of St.
John's College. Oxford, an arable farm of 480 acres at Long Wittenham, where he specialises in mechanised corn growing, pigs, and sheep.
Tonight Professor Scott Watson will review the outlook for the beef producer during the coming winter-feeding season and will discuss some possible ways of reducing the cost of bullock fattening.

Tonight the Rocky Mountaineers are off to the ' Huskin Bee.' Every year when the work of husking the ears from the cobs of corn is over and the grain is all stowed away for winter feeding, the homesteaders for a hundred niles around gather in the big red barn lor the ' Huskin Bee,' or barn dance. It's a merry time-especially as the lumberjacks are invited to provide the tun..... And when they are represented by such hundred per cent. Canadian personalities as Bill Campbell , and Al and Bob Harvey , and when the corporal in the Canadian Mounted Police is played by Gerry Fitzgerald , listeners may know that they are in for a rattling good entertainment.
This-is the fourth broadcast of the Rocky Mountaineers,' and the third in this series. It has proved so popular that there are to be at least two more broadcasts between now and Christmas.

Benozzo's Waltz Song, Er soll dein
Herr sein (He shall be your Master)
One of the most important results of the development of the waltz in Vienna was its effect on light opera. A new style of operetta was evolved during the last quarter of the nineteenth century— a style that was a happy combination of the Viennese waltz and the gay and tuneful French opéra bouffe as represented by Offenbach. Johann Strauss led the way with numerous operettas, of which Die Fledermehts and Der Zigeunerbaron are notable examples. He was soon followed by a line of gifted composers, such as Suppe and Millocker, and later Heuberger, Franz Lehar , and Oscar Straus.
Suppe's opera overtures are well known to listeners. Suppe was for a time conductor at the Theater an der Wien, where in 1869 Millocker became conductor and composer. Among several highly successful operettas were his Gasparone and The Beggar Student, the latter achieving an international success. It was first produced in London at the Alhambra in 1884.

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.
