: Music-Course 2 Continuation Course 6 The Term's Experience '

Thomas ARMSTRONG , D.Mus.
The idea of inviting school-children to compose tunes and send them in was originated by Sir Walford Davies , and I when Dr. Armstrong took over this s course from him eighteen months ago he decided to carry the idea on. Both Dr. Armstrong and the musicians who come to illustrate the lessons are astonished at the imagination and ability these little compositions show, and Dr. Armstrong would pay a tribute to the stimulating and musicianly work done by the teachers themselves at many of the schools.
Dr. Armstrong was organist at
Exeter Cathedral for nearly six years before he went to Christ Church, Oxford. He has often broadcast, of course, from both cathedrals, and is to broadcast from Oxford on December 28. He is conductor of the Oxford Bach Choir of 450 singers, a good many of them undergraduates. Dr. Armstrong gave a series of talks on English music two years ago.

' Science '
' Making New Plants'
J. B. S. HALDANE , F.R.S., Professor of Genetics in the University of London
This afternoon J. B. S. Haldane talks to Schools for the second time this term. Listeners will remember how welcome was his last microphone visit in October, when he explained how divers and airmen manage to breathe at abnormal pressures. The broadcast today promises to be just as interesting, for Professor Haldane is to deal with the subject of breeding and cross-breeding of plants. In recent years the scientific study of plant reproduction has been well rewarded. As the result of experiments, certain plants can now be so transformed as to be of more use to man. Seeds can be lessened in number or even eliminated to make fruit or vegetables more palatable, for instance.

: ' In your Garden'

C. H. MIDDLETON
Flowers that bloom out of doors in winter are the lovelier for that. Stars of yellow jasmine glittering on a trellis, the white, demure Christmas rose thanking you for a sheet of glass to shelter it from mud-splashing rain, the aconite with quaint green frill to its face of gold like a diminutive Granville Barker fairy, winter irises-all may bloom in your garden.
This evening C. H. Middleton is to bring to the microphone that writer of gardening best-sellers, H. H. Thomas , who is also editor of Good' Gardening, and he will discuss some of the plants that flower in the open during the long winter months.

' Samuel Butler '
DESMONDMACCARTHY
Samuel Butler , perhaps the most original English thinker of the nineteenth century, was born near Bingham, ' Nottinghamshire, just a hundred years ago—on December 4, 1835. Grandson of a Bishop of Lichfield (whose life he wrote); Anglican lay reader; New Zealand sheep-breeder ; painter-one of his pictures is now in the Tate Gallery ; agnostic pamphleteer ; Swift-like satirist ; antagonist of Darwin ; composer ; art-critic; translator of Homer-he was a limitless, unfathomable man.
We remember him today not for his many-sidedness nor for his freakish theories (for instance, his contention that the ' Odyssey ' was written by a woman), but as the author of the fantastic ' Erewhon ', the brilliant, bitter. autobiographical novel ' The Way of All Flesh', and the pregnant aphorisms of the ' Notebooks '. Desmond Mac-Carthy has already expressed the view elsewhere that ' Samuel Butler was an earlier prophet of that Evolutionary Religion which is being preached by Shaw and Wells '.

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.
