Regional Geography
' The Monsoon Lands ' : India
II — ' Burma '
J. N. L. BAKER , Lecturer in Geography in the University of Oxford
The French call Burma ' Indo-Chine anglaise ', for this country is geographically a part of Indo-China. To the European it is a land of almost endless fascination. Even a tired traveller could not be bored with its rice-fields cultivated in terraces, its pagodas and monasteries, its humped oxen and water buffalo that are still used for ploughing, its women with their charm and emancipated outlook on life, and its interesting port of Rangoon.
Burma is mostly an agricultural country. Its climate, not too pleasant in many parts for Englishmen, is excellent for rice and rubber. The mineral wealth of the country is exploited too : there are many oil-fields of world importance. This afternoon J. N. L. Baker will tell listeners all about these and other industries, and outline the difficult labour problems that have not yet been solved.

: THE RUTLAND SQUARE AND NEW VICTORIA ORCHESTRA

Directed by NORMAN AUSTIN
Relayed from
Dvorak's ' Carnival' Overture is not a prelude to en opera, as are most overtures. It is the second of three concert overtures illustrating scenes of childhood, youth, and manhood. It was originally intended that all three should be played in succession to form a single symphonic work, but the ' Carnival'
Overture is the only one that is nowadays heard.

Discovering England
South Lancashire'
2—' The People'
JOHN HILTON , Professor of Industrial Relations in the University of Cambridge
There is a saying that Lancastrians have hard heads and soft hearts, and broadly this generalisation is true; their acute business sense is usually tempered with a fine generosity. This afternoon John Hilton is to tell listeners all about these warm-hearted folk. They have a dia]ect, humour, dress, and dwellings, customs, and sports that are peculiar to themselves.
Listeners will hear why many of them are rough and ready in speech and mannerism, and why by gum ' is a favourite phrase of theirs. And it will be pointed out that pride of county is a strong characteristic, tor, although the Wars of the Roses may be long forgotten, Lancastrians still feel that Yorkshiremen are their rivals. They no longer fight them, of course, but a Lancashire football team playing a Yorkshire team arouses an astonishing amount of native enthusiasm.

: World History—II

' The Three Strong Men of Japan'
EILEEN POWER, Professor of Economic History in the University of London
Paradoxically, Japan found internal peace through the warlike activities of three very great men, Nobunaga, Hideyoshi, and lyeyasu. Before Nobunaga's time, the country was ruled by anarchy. There was no effective central government. But Nobunaga was a clever military commander who did much to unite Japan. His assistant was Hideyoshi, a peasant, who originally worked for him as a groom. This remarkable person ended his life in 1598 as administrator of the whole empire. The third ' strong man ' whom Professor Eileen Power will deal with this afternoon is Iyeyasu, who was born in 1542 and died in 1616.

: THE LONDON ZIGEUNER ORCHESTRA

Directed by ERNEST LEGGETT
LINDA SEYMOUR (contralto)
Ernest Leggett , Director of the London Zigeuner Orchestra, studied the violin at the Royal College of Music. For three years he was a member of the Queen's Hall Orchestra and then signed a contract for five years to play in Sir Thomas Beecham 's Orchestra at Covent Garden. From 1918 for several years Mr. Leggett acted as leader and sub-conductor at various theatres devoted to musical comedy. In 1929 he was appointed musical director at Streatham Hill Theatre.
About four years ago he hit upon the idea to form a gypsy band, the outcome of which was the London Zigeuner Orchestra. It took him a year to arrange a special repertoire of music in the gypsy idiom, to form the band, rehearse, and finally get ready for public appearance.
Every member of this celebrated orchestra is a first-rate orchestral player, and every one is British. Yet under Ernest Leggett 's direction they have assimilated the gypsy style of playing so perfectly that no one can tell them from a gypsy band. They have been broadcasting regularly since March, 1932.

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.
