Regional Geography
The Monsoon Lands : China and Japan
China, 6-' Manchuria'
G. B. BARBOUR , Ph.D.
Mongol nomads with their yurts and camels, proud Manchu banner-men ,
Chinese colonists wresting a living from the soil, fierce Cossack horsemen and trappers, keen Japanese merchants
-all played their part in the pioneer development of this important corner of monsoon Asia. The sixth and last of Dr. Barbour's talks sketches the background against which the human drama is being enacted today.
The winter monsoon blows across the forests of the Manchurian mountains over the sea to Japan, where Mr. Lowndes will await the arrival ot listeners (and spectators in imagination) next week.

: THE TROCADERO CINEMA ORCHESTRA

Directed by ALFRED VAN DAM Relayed from the Troxy Cinema
Thomas Hewitt , who was born at Crovdon, lived most of his early life at
Hove, where he sang in the choir at St.
John's Church. At fifteen he became a pupil of the well-known musical scholar Dr. A. W. Abdey , who gave him the best part of his musical education. Hewitt has been for many years past a school teacher in North London.
But his academic work was never allowed to blunt his natural gifts for composing light music, of which his Suite ' Four Trifles ' is a delightfully melodious example. Hewitt's published works include three light operas, several song cycles (among which ' Songs of the Pavement ' enjoyed considerable popularity), and numerous separate songs, such as ' Out where the big ships go '.

Discovering England
East Anglia-3, 'The People'
R. H. MOTTRAM
This afternoon R. H. Mottram will conclude his series of talks on East Anglia-that area which was once a kingdom of Anglo-Saxon Britain-by describing the inhabitants from the earliest times to the present day. In the course of his talk he will point out that there is now a return to the prosperity that was characteristic of the eighteenth century.
Mottram is in his early fifties. He needs no introduction to the novel-reader, for it was he who, amongst other works, wrote that fine story ' The Spanish Farm '. But for this talk he has a more particular qualification : he was born and, before he went to Lausanne, was educated in Norwich, the historic capital of Norfolk.

: World History-5

' Nineteenth Century Europe'
EILEEN POWER, Professor of Economic
History in the University of London
There have been several revolutions in France, the most important of which was the one of 1789. And it was important not only to France, but to the rest of Europe. At first many of the absolute monarchs welcomed the news of the upheaval. Here, they said complacently, is a little accident that will stop Louis hindering our plans for the partition of Poland. But this optimistic near-sightedness soon met with disillusion. For the doctrine of the people's sovereignty began to percolate across the French frontier, and the democratic foundation of nineteenth-century Europe was laid. It is this aftermath of the Revolution that Professor Eileen Power will describe this afternoon.

Led by LAURANCE TURNER
Conducted by JOSEPH LEWIS and JOHN GREENWOOD
(First Performmce)
(Conducted by the Composer)
John Greenwood 's ' Salute to Gustav Hoist 'is a short orchestral piece composed in 1934 in memory of the distinguished English composer. The music shows traces of Hoist's influence and certain passages are reminiscent of his style.
Mr. Greenwood has also composed the music for the films Man of Aran and The Constant Nymph, and has written incidental music for J. B. Fagan 's stage productions of the Midsummer Night's Dream and The Merchant of Venice.
One of the most beautiful of Elgar's works is the ' Enigma' Variations, which perhaps more than any other has been the means of spreading his fame abroad. The title ' enigma ' refers to ' another and larger ' theme (a well-known tune) which if plaved in conjunction with the present' theme and the subsequent variations fits perfectly. More than one student of Elgar's music claims to have solved the enigma.
These variations are dedicated ' To my friends pictured within ', and, consequently, each variation is prefaced with the initials or nickname of the friend ' pictured '. Elgar's own wish, however, was that the work should stand simply as a ' piece ' of music.

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.
