' Middle Europe'
12—' Rumanian Lands of the Lower
Danube'
HILDA ORMSBY , D.Sc.
Like the plains of the Vistula, which were described a fortnight ago by Godfrey Lias , the Southern Plain of Rumania is extremely monotonous as far as scenic interest is concerned. It slopes gradually from the marshes of the Danube up to the Carpathians.
On this long range of mountains, snow-covered peaks and Alpine piants and animals are to be found, even when spring has given way to the steady warmth of summer-conditions that contrast strongly with those of the regions in the east and south.
This afternoon Dr. Hilda Ormsby will discuss these and other physical features of the Rumanian lands of the Danube, a country-side which has agricultural resources in maize and wheat, and mineral wealth in oil.

Solo pianoforte, MARJORIE B. BATES
THE B B C MIDLAND ORCHESTRA
Leader, Alfred Cave
Conducted by H. FOSTER CLARK
Stanford's Fifth Symphony bears the sub-title, ' L'Allegro ed il Pensieroso ', and the movements are prefixed with quotations from Milton's two poems.
The first cries :
' Hence, loathed Melancholy,
Of Cerberus and blackest midnight born and goes on to invoke the Goddess of Mirth :—
Haste thee, Nymph, and bring with thee Jest, and youthful jollity.
Quips and cranks and wanton wiles,
Nods and becks and wreathed smiles,
Sport that wrinkled care derides,
And Laughter holding both his sides.'
The scherzo suggests
'.....how the hounds and horn
Cheeky rouse the slumbering morn '. while the slow movement is based on ' Il Pensieroso ' :
' But hail, thou goddess sage and holy.
Huil, divinest Melancholy !'
The finale opens with ' .... the far-off curfew sound
Over some wide-water'd shore, Swinging low with sullen roar ', and passes on (by the train of' gorgeous Tragedy ') to illustrate the famous lines:
' There let the pealing organ blow
To the full-voiced quire below In service high and anthem clear,
As may with sweetness, through mine ear, Dissolve me into ecstasies.
And bring all Heaven before mine eyes."

: ' In Your Garden'

C. H. MIDDLETON
Everywhere throughout the country, in outer London, and round about cities and towns up and down the land, new houses have sprung up and people are occupying them. Both those who have recently moved in and those who are about to do so may easily be wondering how best to cover the bare walls, how to hide the new brick with something that will grow quickly and beautifully, and put out flower like the quince or wisteria, or green leaves changing to scarlet in autumn, like Virginia creeper. What shall we grow? If clematis, shall we have white or purple ? Or shall we bring the country to our door by trailing roses or honeysuckle round our porch?
C. H. Middleton , ever on the look-out for the topical question, is bringing to the microphone this evening R. Findlay , Superintendent of the Royal Horticultural Society's Gardens at Wisley, to talk to listeners on climbers and wall plants.

: I Knew a Man—11

' Keir Hardie '
The Rt. Hon. Viscount SNOWDEN
James Keir Hardie was a Scotsman who worked untiringly for the Labour cause. His early life was a story of terrible hardship ; at ten years of age, for instance, he worked in a mine—a job he eventually lost for trying to organise his workmates. He and John Burns were among the first Labour M.P.'s to enter Parliament.
Not one bit overawed by his surroundings, he wore an ordinary cloth cap in the House of Commons, headgear which shocked many of his opponents because of its unorthodoxy, and encouraged all his adherents because of its unashamed working-class origin. He died in 1915. This evening Viscount Snowden is to give his memories of this remarkable man. Viscount Snowden was Chairman of the Independent Labour Party (the foundation of which Keir Hardie was largely responsible for) from 1903-6 and 1917-20, and entered Parliament as a Socialist M.P. in 1906, when Keir Hardie was among his colleagues on the Labour benches. He was, of course, Chancellor of the Exchequer in 1924 and from 1929 to 1931.

(Section D)
Led by LAURANCE TURNER
Conducted by Sir GRANVILLE BANTOCK
The son of an eminent surgeon, William Wallace was intended for the same calling, and was a brilliant graduate in Medicine, of Glasgow and Vienna Universities. The call of music proved to be too strong, however, and though Dr. Wallace did splendid work during the war at the head of the Ophthalmic section of the Army Medical Services, he has for many years past given himself up mainly to composition. His symphonic poem Villon' is comparatively well known to listeners, but the Overture ' In Praise of Scottish Poesie ' has been, on the whole, unduly neglected. 1. From Asia, from the dayspring that uprises
2. Where is the home for me ? 0 Cyprus
3. Will they ever come to me, ever again;
4. Weave ye the Dance
5. There be many Shapes of Mystery

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
