' Six Weeks of Floods in Rhodesia '
Mrs. 1. WALSH
The scene of this morning's talk is the farm of Galanyondo, of 7 ooo acres, where five years ago Mrs. Walsh and her husband decided to make a home. They arrived in Gwanda when the flood was rising and thanks to a dip-inspector, who volunteered to take them in his lorry, just got through in time.
They found the homestead derelict, and it took the boys eight days to make it fit for human habitation. Meanwhile they slept in the porch, and one night heard a fearsome thing-the cries of a kudu calf in the coils of a cobra.
Whilst Mrs. Walsh took stock of their stores, her husband shot for the pot They were 100 miles from the nearest town. After six weeks the river went down, and the runner was able to get across in his boat of bark. If Mrs.
Walsh lives to be a hundred, she will never forget the sound of the post-boy s kudu horn.

Cesar Franck 's Symphonic Variations for piano and orchestra was composed in 1885. and given its first performance in the following year by the Société Nationale de Musique. It is certainly one of the most beautiful of Franck's works, written as it is with the utmost clarity of style and purity of thought and of colour. The form of the variations is interesting in that it is treated cyclically. Although in one continuous movement, the music falls into ten distinct sections: Introduction, statement of theme and six variations, Interlude, and Finale.
On the entry of the piano in the Introduction (poco allegro), the cyclic theme is heard. Later on the time changes into an allegretto quasi andante, and after a few bars the piano gives out a second theme upon which the six variations are built. The last variation ends with the playing of a repeated arpeggio that leads into the Interlude, one of the most beautiful sections of the work, based on the opening theme which is given to muted strings. The final section is a brilliant. piece of music, in which the opening cyclic theme and the theme of the variations are treated together.

Bartok's Cantata Profana was first performed in England before a private audience at the BBC concert of Contemporary Music on May 25, 1934. It is one of Bela Bartok 's most ambitious works, the sub-title of which is 'The Nine Enchanted Stags' — an old romantic folk legend that lends itself to descriptive musical treatment. The story tells of a father with nine sons who spend their time hunting in the forests. One day they follow a giant stag, lose their way, and by an evil spell are themselves turned into stags.

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.
