Interlude
2.5 Discovering England
' The New Forest-I, As it used to be '
JOHN C. MOORE
In this afternoon's talk John C. Moore will explain how the forest came into being because a king of England happened to love good horses and good hounds and the sound of the hunting horn He will tell also of the Conqueror's son, William Rufus who was mysteriously killed in the forest his father had made. The royal deer were preserved in the New Forest by harsh laws, despite the fact that the peasants crops were spoilt. But it was because of the damage done by the deer that the king granted various rights and privileges to the forest-dwellers.

'Rapid Transport ties the World
Together
EILEEN POWER, Professor of Economic
History in the University of London
This afternoon Professor Eileen Power will discuss the coming of the railway and the steamship in the nineteenth century and what the dawn of the new age meant. People and goods could move about quickly, easily, and cheaply, new countries could be opened up and all parts of the world brought closer together What was considered rapid transport then would be considered slow today with modern liners making the passage between continent and continent in ever faster time, and with the Cape linked to Cairo by air. But steam transport, when it first came in, was rapid transport such as the world had never seen before.

: THE B B C SCOTTISH ORCHESTRA

Leader, J. Mouland Begbie Conductor, Guy WARRACK
Crowne's play The Married Beau was given at the Theatre Royal in 1694. Purcell, who was then at the zenith of his theatrical career, wrote the instrumental music which was played, as was the custom in Restoration times. before the rise of the curtain and at the end of each act. This instrumental music has been arranged into a Suite by Gustav Hoist , who has also added optional wind parts to Purcell's score.
The Overture is in the French style of the period, consisting of a slow introduction leading into a quick movement based on a fugato passage. A short Hornpipe follows: this, like all Purcell's hornpipes, is not in common time, but in the triple rhythm which Handel later used for the hornpipe in his well-known ' Water Music After a slow Air in the ' amorous soft vein ' comes a Trumpet Air, a Jig, another Hornpipe, and a March. The final piece in the Suite is a Hornpipe on a Ground. No composer has been more successful than Purcell in composing on a Ground Bass, and on a four-bar figure in the bass builds an elaborate yet vigorous dance measure.

: A Violin Recital

by EMIL TELMANYI
Emil Telmanyi was born in 1892 in Hungary. Although he showed extraordinary musical gifts at an early age, he was not exploited as a prodigy, but was sent to the Royal Academy of Music at Budapest to receive an all-round musical education, which, although he was a violinist, included such subjects as composition, con- j ducting, and piano. In 1911 Telmanyi took his degree as virtuoso, composer, and teacher. In the same year he made his debut in Berlin with the Philharmonic Orchestra, on which occasion he gave the first performance in Germany of Elgar's Violin Concerto.
As a violinist he has appeared with most of the finest conductors in Europe, and since 1919, when he made his debut as a conductor in Copenhagen, he has conducted many of the leading orchestras in Europe.

Milhaud's Suite of Dances entitled 'Saudades do Brazil' (the literal translation is 'Salutations from Brazil') was originally composed for piano solo, and later orchestrated by the composer. The titles appended to each dance are for the most part the names of localities in the suburbs of Rio de Janeiro, where Milhaud went in 1917 as Secretary to Paul Claudel, then French Ambassador to Brazil. The dances are without exception written in two-four time, in characteristic tango rhythm, and are remarkable for the acid quality of the harmonies and a certain harshness arising from the polytonal character of the writing - a favourite device of the composer's and nowhere more strikingly exemplified than in the present Suite. The melodies are, however, not without a certain haunting charm.

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.
