Regional Geography The Monsoon Lands:
China and Japan-China
3—' The Lower Yangtze '
G. B. BARBOUR , Ph.D.
The summer before last, Dr. Barbour was asked by the Chinese Government to join a scientific expedition which travelled 3,400 miles in the Yangtze basin. Today's geographical talk brings the party from Shanghai, past the. new capital of Nanking, to the entrance of China. Here the port of Hankow, 600 miles inland, marks the cross-roads of river, rail, road, and air . You will hear about water buffaloes, china-ware, and ... well, maybe, you'd better tune in and find out.

: A Recital of Russian Songs VLADIMIR ROSING (tenor)

Russian song-literature, too little known abroad (mainly because of the language difficulty), covers an astonishingly wide field. Originating only a hundred years or so ago in the sentimental salon, songs composed and sung by cultured but technically unskilled amateurs, the Russian ' art-song' has since been fertilised from various sources : native folk-song, the classical German Lied, even the French romance.
Tchaikovsky and Cui represent the main line of development of Russian song, the polished, lyrical type of song that sounds equally in place on the concert-platform or in the drawing-room. But the fresh veins opened sixty or seventy years ago by Dargomijsky and developed by Mussorgsky are of more interest ; Dargomijsky was the first to introduce realism (both tragic and comic) and satire, even caricature, at the expense of the lyrical element.
Mussorgsky's ' The Orphan ' and ' The Goat', both included in Vladimir Rosing 's programme, are excellent examples of this new realism, respectively tragic and humorous. Borodin's setting of Nekrassov's ' Conceit ' is another ; the music is so vivid that one easily visualises the pompous little man whom the song satirises.

: THE B B C ORCHESTRA

(Section C)
Led by MARIE WILSON
Conducted by FRANK BRIDGE
WALTER FREY (pianoforte)
Honegger's Piano Concertino dates from 1926 and was first performed in Paris by the composer's wife, Audree Vaurabourg , to whom it is dedicated, with the composer conducting. The work is in one movement, the opening Allegro molto moderato being succeeded by a Larghetto sostenuto section leading to a final Allegro. It is scored for a small orchestra, and the piano part makes no excessive demands on the virtuosity of the soloist. There are some piquant effects in the orchestration, and the syncopated concluding section is imbued with the spirit of jazz-a sophisticated kind of jazz with a strong ironical flavour.
Alexander Dargomijsky (1813-1869), a slightly younger contemporary of Glinka and like him an amateur, has an honoured place in the history of Russian music as a pioneer of ' realism ' in opera and in the song. (In his opera The Stoye Guest he anticipated Debussy by composing in the whole-tone mode.) He explains in his autobiography that, in despair of winning the favour of the public with his opera, he ' decided to turn his attention to the composition of orchestral works '.
Three pieces resulted : this ' Kosachok ' (Fantasia on a Cossack dance-tune), a ' Fantasia on Finnish Themes ', and a tone-picture ' Baba Yaga' depicting the ride of the witch of that name. The ' Kosachok' may be regarded as a sort of companion piece to Glinka's well-known ' Kamarinskaya'.

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.
