: 'Round some Scottish Farmhouses'

Mrs. ARTHUR WEBB
Mrs. Arthur Webb believes in seeing a thing for herself before she talks about it, and just as she visited some typical farmhouses of England and Wales before giving her broadcast talks, so she has been on a personal tour of Scottish farmhouses. She was impressed by the characteristic, nutty flavour of the oatmeal, due in a great measure to roasting before use, by the substantial nature of the broths, and the amount of fish consumed on the farms.
She is to discuss the wonder of heavily-laden orchards in South-West Scotland, which must have escaped the disastrous May frosts; the big cheese-making farms, and the efficiency, friendliness, and wide interests of the farmers' wives themselves.

: THE CELLINI TRIO

The Cellini Trio consists of three well-known instrumentalists.
Gordon Walker is principal flute of the London Symphony Orchestra and was for ten years principal flute at Covent Garden. He has appeared as soloist in Bach and Mozart Concertos at the Proms and at nearly every important concert organisation in the Kingdom.
Geraint Williams is sub-principal
'cellist of the London Symphony Orchestra. He studied at the Guildhall School of Music under W. H. Squire and Warwick Evans , and is now well known as a soloist. Roy Douglas , pianist and composer, is a frequent broadcaster, appearing in almost every kind of programme from orchestral concerts to chamber music and accompanying.
A notable feature of the Cellini Trio is the fact that all their programmes are not only very carefully rehearsed, but each number is specially arranged for their combination, as their aim is* to perform everything in true chamber music style.

'Round the Countryside'
11—' Bird-watching in December'
RICHARD MORSE
The more closely and intimately we watch the birds, the more fascinating they become. Although all robins are alike in some ways, they are, like human beings, very different in others. And it is the same with other birds. When we get to know them as individuals, we find many new delights in our observation of them.
This afternoon Mr. Richard Morse will speak about some of the simpler methods of bird-watching, whether in town or country, and will describe his own observations of some of the more familiar species of garden and countryside.

4.0 To Unemployed Listeners
' This and That'
JOHN HILTON
Today John Hilton is going to talk about the little gadgets and fitments an unemployed man can make out of cheap materials with simple tools (in the craft room at the Club if he has no tools of his own) to make the house more cosy and to make things easier for the wife. If he starts at once he can have something ready and the paint nicely dry for Christmas; and what's nicer, Hilton asks, than to give your wife a Christmas present made with your own hands ? i
So these little human talks go on, from week to week, throughout the year, drawing a tremendous response from listeners-a hundred letters a week, to each of which he tries to reply. Those who write tell him that what he says helps. The other day a man wrote to him to say that if he chose to deal with the prices of fat stock, listeners would be able to hear the cow moo.

(Section A)
Anthony Pini , who is the subject of an article by Guy Fletcher in the ' People You Hear' series on page 12, is one of the finest of young British cellists; in fact, 2s a soloist he is the equal of the leading foreign artists. He combines elegance of style with a perfect technical equipment and a tone of rare beauty. and as an interpreter of both classical and modern music he shows wide sympathies and exceptional musical sensitiveness. On March 5 Anthony Pini is to give a London recital at Wigmore Hall. (THE BBC CHORUS, SECTION A)

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
