: For the Schools: British History: 12: Paying Homage

Rhoda Power
'He sent his men over all England into every shire... and caused them to write down... what property everyone in all England possessed in land or in cattle and find out what this was worth..... Nor was there an ox nor a cow nor a pig left that was not set down in his writing'.
This is an extract from the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle of 1085, when William the Conqueror ordered the Domesday Book to be made. It was after the Book had been compiled that the King ordered the lords to pay homage to him for their lands.
The word 'homage' is derived from the French homme, a man. A person who paid homage promised to be the King's man-that is to say, promised to fight for his ruler and obey orders without question.

MAURICE EISENBERG
Relayed from
The Pavilion, Bournemouth
Maurice Eisenberg was born in Konigsberg in 1902, of Russian-Polish parents. The Eisenberg family went to America when Maurice was only a few years old. He began the study of the violin at an early age and at eleven changed over to the 'cello. His remarkable gifts for the latter won him a scholarship at the Peabody Conservatory, Baltimore. Two or three years later the famous con- ductor, Stokowski, was examining at the Peabody Conservatory and he was so struck with the gifts of Eisenberg that shortly afterwards he offered him an engagement as a 'cellist with the Philadelphia Orchestra. At the age of eighteen Eisenberg became solo and principal 'cellist in the New York Symphony Orchestra.
Three years later he met
Albert Coates , who gave him an introduction to Casals who heard Eisenberg's playing with great enthusiasm. Eisenberg was so stimulated at this experience that he decided to resign from the New York Symphony Orchestra and concentrate on solo work. He went to Leipzig to study under Julius Klengel. then to Berlin under Becker, and finally under Alexanien at the Ecole Normale de Musique in Paris.
Since that time, Mr. Eisenberg has become one of the leading solo 'cellists in Europ-and the man who has helped and inspired him more than anyone else is Pau Casals, under whose baton he has played on many occasions.

J. A. SCOTT WATSON (Professor of Rural

This evening Professor J. A. Scott Watson is to bring to the microphone Mr. Tom Newman , who is Secretary of the Scientific Poultry Breeders' Association and editor of the well-known journal Eggs. His name is familiar to all poultry-keepers.
Undoubtedly the subject of greatest concern to poultry-breeders today is the increasing incidence of poultry disease. Mr. Newman will give his views regarding the causes of the trouble, and will discuss the changes in system of management and in the organisation of the industry which seem to be necessary in order to raise the standard of health in poultry flocks and reduce the heavy losses that disease is now causing.

: Offenbach and Company

THE BBC THEATRE ORCHESTRA
Leader, MONTAGUE BREARLEY
Conducted by HYAM GREENBAUM
in A Programme of French Music
Of all the many gifted composers of Opéra comique who flourished in Paris during the nineteenth century Offenbach was undoubtedly the most brilliant. His success as a composer of Opéra comique, of which we have no exact equivalent in England, was probably unparalleled in the history of this form of entertainment.
Offenbach's industry was also astonishing, and the number of successful works which he produced in his busy life is well-nigh incredible. It was his ambition, however, to write at least one work on the Tales of Hoffmann when he died. It was completed by Guiraud, and produced in Paris in 1881. the year after its composer's death, and was given over a hundred times in that same year. It has ever since been in the repertory in Paris, and is regularly played in most countries o! Europe, even in our own.

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.
