Regional Geography
' The Monsoon Lands '—Ind)a 9—'The Malabar Coast, the Nilgiris and the Carnatic Plain '
I- N. L. BAKER, Lecturer in Geography in the University of Oxford
This morning Mr. Baker is to drop south from the Western Ghats and take listeners to Southern India. They will 'ear, among other things, about one of the most interesting tribes of India-the Todas who live in the Nilgiris or Blue Hills. They live in low huts and crawl in and out on their hands and knees, saluting the sun in the morning and their lamps at night. They milk their buffaloes, and are a simple pastoral people.
Listeners will hear, too, of the fertile coastal plain lying to the west of the Nilgiris, of the Palghat Gap to the south which forms a natural pass from the west to the cast of India—the Carnatic plain and coast and the city of Madras, once a small trading station ot the East India Company and now the third city of India in size.

: World History-9 'Akbar'

EILEEN POWER, Professor of Economic History in the University of London
The military conqueror does not always make a good administrator. This afternoon's dramatic interlude deals with Akbar, the Mogul Emperor who successfully played both parts-so well, indeed, that he earned the title of ' Guardian of Mankind '. The grand-son of Babur, he succeeded to the throne in 1556, but it was not until 1560 that he was able to break loose from the control of the regency of Bairam Khan , a Turkoman noble.
The first seven years of his reign were devoted almost continually to warfare. And in 1594 Akbar had established his sovereignty over Oudh, Gwalior, Kabul, Kashmir, Sind, and Kandahar. Despite the fact that these conquests made him by far the most powerful monarch ever known in India, he showed his dissatisfaction with his achievements by seizing Berar. His efforts to create a workable social system in his territories were admirable. He stamped out extortion, instituted religious freedom, took a great interest in commerce, and was an intelligent patron of the arts.

(Section E)
Led by LAURANCE TURNER
Conducted by AYLMER BUESST
TREFOR JONES (tenor)
This 'Suite' of Francois Couperin appeared ,n the first of the Concerts Royaux presented by the composer at the Court of Louix XIV while he was clavecinist (from 1716-18). Its original form was that of a trio for clavencin and the two instruments that correspond to our present violin and 'cello. On an old edition in Paris was found a reprint ot the programmes as they appeared when first printed in 1722; also a letter from Couperin, signed with his initials, in which he states that he himself had thought of ' sometime using or adding ' the very instruments that were already chosen for the present score. It was introduced by Mrs. Coolidge at the Berkshire Festival a year ago (in Pittsfield, Massachusetts), and has since been heard in New York several times. One notes, with some surprise, that the Minuet in this Suite is placed at the end. It seems more than probable that the audience danced after the concert was over. (Soloist, TREFOR JONES> ) (Soloist, TREFOR JONES> )
Of the eight numbers forming Elgaes
'Nursery Suite' No. I . Aubade' is structurally the most important, for it is the longest and the most highly developed. The first section flows from a hymn tune ' Hear Thy Children gentle Jesus' that was written by the composer in his youth. The pieces that follow are all beautifully contrasted and in Elgar's most charming and fanciful vein. The last number hnvoy opens with an elaborate cadenza for solo violin. No fresh material is introduced, but instead both soloist and orchestra comment upon what has gone before, finally rounding off the whole work with a longish reference to the first number, ' Aubade '.

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.
