: Housekeeping in Adventure

' Bee Keeping on a Canadian Prairie '
MARY LUTY
At one time or another Mary Luty seems to have been engaged in housekeeping in adventure in most corners of the globe. Last autumn she described how she cooked her way round the world; today she will tell more fully of life in a caboose, or caravan, on a Canadian prairie, complete with oil lamp and that symbol of a Canad.an home-a rocking chair. She had an acre of land, and had to fell trees to clear the ground for her bee-hnes.
From October to April the ground was white with snow. Potatoes would freeze ; she wore breeches and sheepskin mocassins, and with a short coat over her warm blouse, had, to go half a mile or more every day to her ne.ghbours for water. She will describe how she made the hives herself, and how at the end of April her bees arrived from the southern states of America She will describe the short but not unprofitable season and the marketing of the honey. A likeable life, if a lonely one, in which she learned to talk to herself.

Solo pianoforte, ARTHUR DE GREEF from the Pavilion, Bournemouth
The history of Borodin's Second Symphony is closely linked with that of his opera, Prince Igor. The first ideas for the Symphony occurred to him early in 1869, hut in April of that year Stassov suggested the opera subject to him, and for a time he devoted all his energies to Igor. Then he decided (temporarily) that the subject was unsuitable. 'Don't worry about it', lie wrote to Stassov. ' The material won't be wasted. It will all go into my Second Symphony '. Accordingly the first movement of the Symphony was written in 1871. During the period 1874-76 he was working at both opera and Symphony, and the last two movements of the Symphony were based on themes originally intended for an epilogue to Prince Igor.

'Understanding Your Car's Complaints '-I
JOHN ADAMS
As the spring approaches, thoughts turn from the house to the open air, and in many cases in the first place to the garage and the car which many a listener has laid up all the winter and will now be taking on the road again.
This evening Mr. Adams, who gave a talk this month in ' Topics in the Air ' on ' Taking out the Car ', is to give the first of two talks continuing his story, and describing with the assistance of gramophone records the noises a car makes and what they mean. Mr. Adams has had the co-operation of the A.A. and the R.A.C., and will give his second talk next Wednesday, April 8.

: Symphony Concert, Part 2

The scenarios and decor of Stravinsky's Rite of Spring, and the descriptive sub-titles, were suggested by Nicholas Roerich , painter, archaeologist and ethnographer. Roerich had been in charge of important excavations in the Novgorod Province, which had brought to light numerous treasures of neolithic art, and no one was better fittted to devise an artistic re-creation of the spring fertility rites of the pagan Slavs.
The work is divided into two parts : a ceremony of earth-worship and the sacrifice of a chosen maiden. After a slow introduction based on a Lithuanian folk-melody, come the ' auguries of spring ' (' stamping ' chords) ; the young beauties of the tribe dance, and there is a mock ' marriage by capture ' (a swift scherzo). Then come ' spring rounds ' (opened and closed by a lovely clarinet melody) and ' the gamea of rival communities '. Presently a Wise Elder appears ; he kisses the earth in adoration, and the first part ends with ' the winning of the earth by dancing '. After a gloomy introduction, the maidens begin the sacrifice, moving mysteriously in circles. There is a wild dance glorifying the chosen victim ; the shades of the tribal ancestors are evoked and worshipped ; and the work ends with a wild sacrificial dance.
An article on this work, by Edwin Evans , appears on page 14.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
