British History-2
'Evening in the Castle'
RHODA POWER
A mental reconstruction of domestic life as it was centuries ago is difficult to stage from the bare facts outlined in a conventional history book. An evening spent in a medieval castle, for instance. Even a close study of a well-preserved Norman fortress will not readily evoke accurate images of what happened behind its walls. This afternoon, however, Rhoda Power is going to introduce listeners to some of the people who Were guests at an old English castle, the people to whom the minstrel gaily sang:—
.' Wolcum be ye that arn here
Wolcum alle and make good chere.....'

2 — ' What we Eat '
R. C. GARRY , M.B., Ch.B., D.Sc., Professor of Physiology, University College, Dundee, the University of St. Andrews
This lesson first explains why we eat-to obtain energy, and to obtain material for growth and for repair; The six main foodstuffs-protein, carbohydrate, fat, water, salts, and vitamins-are briefly described. The composition of several common foods is shown by means of diagrams in the pamphlet.
Thereafter, the estimation of food value in terms of calories is explained in elementary fashion, and the application illustrated by an example.

' Sadko ' (written in 1867, when the composer was only twenty-three ; revised in 1892) was composed many years before the opera on the same subject. The writing of an orchestral piece on the subject of Sadko, the minstrel of Novgorod who is carried off by the Sea-King's daughter and sets the whole submarine kingdom dancing to his music (thus causing an appalling storm on the surface of the ocean), was first suggested by Stassov to Balakirev ; Batakirev passed it on to Mussorgsky, and Mussorgsky to Rimsky-Korsakov. Korsakov's ' programme ' is very simple and concise : Calm sea—Sadko's descent into the depths of the ocean-the Sea King's feast (Sadko's dance-tune growing wilder and wilder as the storm arises)-calm sea as at the beginning. Incidentally, Rimsky-Korsakov used the themes of this early orchestral piece in his opera Sadko, composed twenty-eight years later.

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.
