Tracing History Backwards - 2a 'Money'
Stephen King-Hall
Money is a thing with which we are all familiar and yet a thing very few of us understand. Today Commander King-Hall, who has such a flair for making complicated things sound simple, is to discuss some of the problems arising from the use of money. He will define money and its purpose ; discuss prices and inflation and deflation ; say something about the Mint, the Gold Standard, 'paper money', rates of exchange, savings banks, and, finally, the Bank of International Settlements.
Arising out of this talk all sorts of questions may suggest themselves. What is the market value of an ounce of silver? How many shillings go to an ounce of silver? What is a cheque? What are National Savings Certificates?

3—' The Story of the Salmon '
C. C. GADDUM
This afternoon Mr. Gaddum is to tell listeners why the salmon spends part of its life in the sea and part of it in fresh water. He will discuss the great journey from the sea up the river ; the leaping of the falls and the ultimate arrival at the breeding grounds. Then listeners are to hear about the making of the nest or redd ; the battle of the males ; the hatching of the eggs, and the perilous descent of the young salmon to the sea from which their parents came:
Teachers will find, it helpful to their classes to have illustrations of a salmon, and if possible of a salmon leaping the falls of a river.

: A Light Classical Concert

THE MACNAGHTEN STRING QUARTET: Anne Macnaghten (violin) ; Elise Desprez (violin) ; Margaret Ludwig (viola);
Olive Richards (violoncello) OLIVE CLOKE (pianoforte)
Debussy never wrote any symphonies, overtures, concertos, or even sonatas (in the classical sense of the term). The nearest he approached to the conventional sonata design was in the String Quartet in G minor, which was completed and first performed in 1893, when he was in his thirty-second year. It is recorded that Debussy once declared that in this quartet he had said all he had to say in that form.
Debussy was essentially a miniaturist, and one of the most attractive features of his music is its purity and delicacy of texture. His principal concern was the suggesting of vague and subtle emotional moods and the painting of half-lights and exquisite shades of colour. To this end Debussy resorted to the use of a highly original system of harmony based on the two whole tone scales which provide that pungent flavour, or rather ' atmosphere ', so characteristic of his music from the String Quartet onwards.

: ' Liebestraum'

(Dream of Love)
The second performance of a new pot-pourri of Love Songs by Julius Buerger
A full list of the items in this programme will be found on page 13-
Another musical mixture with an attractive label and still more attractive contents ! This evening's Julius Buerger potpourri begins and ends appropriately with Liszt's ' Liebestraum '. And the main body of the programme consists of romantic music by varied composers of the calibre of Brahms, Mendelssohn, Chopin, Lehar, Fall, and Oscar Straus.
The ' Schrammel Quartet ' is composed of two violins, a guitar, and an accordion. It is named after a celebrated dance violinist who favoured this rather unusual combination.
Three of the soloists, Mary Jarred ,
Jan van der Gucht, and Arnold Matters, are far too well known to listeners to need introduction. However, Joan Berit is a newcomer to the microphone.
As before, Buerger's orchestrations have been devised especially to exploit the versatility of the BBC Theatre Orchestra to the full.

This is the second broadcast in a new series which started on January 14 when a taxi-driver and a huntsman came to the microphone and discussed the differences of their work. Tonight another well-contrasted pair are to come to the microphone and do the same ; a newspaper canvasser and a small shopkeeper will tell each other— and listeners-about their jobs.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
