: Missionary Talk

' Modem Iran' by the Rev. Ali KHAN NAKHOSTEEN
Mr. Ali Nakhosteen, who is to give the monthly missionary broadcast talk today, has charge of the sale of the Bible for the British and Foreign Bible Society in Iran and Irak. His head-quarters are at Isfahan, and he has a staff of ten colporteurs. Bibles are required in Iran, he says, in forty different languages, and their sale has gone up in the past few years from 10,000 to 40,000 a year. Mr. Nakhosteen is to give a glowing account of developments in Iran during the last ten years.
A native of Teheran, Mr. Nakhosteen was educated at the American College (now called Alborz College) in that city, and at the Forman Christian College, Lahore. India. During his present visit to England, with his wife and baby daughter, he is to take a course of study at Oxford University:

Betty Bannerman was born in England of Scottish parents, spent her childhood in India where she was nearly eaten by a crocodile, returned to England to be educated at Cheltenham College, and finally went to Paris. There Miss Bannerman studied singing with Lloyd d'Aubignéfor two years, and on his death came back to London to study with Robert Tait. Later, Miss Bannerman went to Berlin to work at German Lieder with the famous teacher von zur Miihlen. Miss Bannerman has also studied modern French songs with Claire Croiza. She gave her first recital in 1927 and sang at the Three Choirs Festival in 1928 and 1930.


Paul Kadosa is a new name to British listeners. He was born at Léva in 1903, and studied under Zoltan Kodaly for composition and Arnold Szekcly for pianoforte. Since 1927 he has been a professor of the piano at the Fodor Music School in Budapest.
Kadosa has written a considerable amount of chamber music, songs, choral works, one symphony, two suites, and two divertimentos for orchestra, a piano concerto a violin concerto, and an oratorio. The Piano Concerto has been performed at the Amsterdam Festival of the International Society for Contemporary Music, and Divertimento No. i for orchestra at the International Festival, Venice.
Kadosa's String Quartet, Op. 22, consists of three movements, the first of which has a sonata-like exposition with five themes. The development is a fugue on the first theme, the four other themes being introduced in the fugal episodes. The second movement is simple in form and content, while the third movement is a combination of rondo and sonata form with a trio and coda.

: A Pianoforte Recital by HARRIET COHEN

The Sonata in E minor by the composer of ' Rule Britannia ' is a typical sonata of the middle of the eighteenth century, the period when the old suite and partita were dying out and the modern sonata of Haydn and Mozart was still in its infancy. On the whole, however, it looks back to Handel and Bach rather than forward. After a rather slow first movement comes a short adagio (with some delightful bits of imitation) leading without a break into the sparkling finale.
(First Broadcast Performance in England)
Harriet Cohen comes from a musical family. Her father is a specialist in the military band and its music, and before she was twelve had taught his daughter how to score for full orchestra. Miss Cohen then went to the Royal Academy of Music and studied under Tobias Matthay and afterwards had a few lessons from Busoni. At the age of seventeen she played before Sir Henry Wood, and he engaged her for the Proms. Among the many distinguished artists with whom she has played are Casals, Tertis, and Sammons.
Miss Cohen has always shown a catholic outlook towards her art, and although she is a fine classical player, she is equally at home with the music of contemporary composers, for which she has been an ardent propagandist, particularly for the works of British' composers.

(E.H. 597)
Ripon Cathedral was founded on the ruins of St. Wilfred's Abbey of the seventh century. Of this original Saxon building nothing is left except the crypt which is now known as St. Wilfred's Needle. The building as seen today was begun in the middle of the twelfth century, and restored in 1862-72 by Sir George Gilbert Scott. The West Front and twin towers in particular are fine examples of Early English architecture. It was in 1836 that the minster was selected to be what it is today: the cathedral of the diocese of Ripon.
The Bishop of Ripon, the Rt. Rev.
Geoffrey Lunt , was appointed to the See in 1935, and was previously vicar of that nursery for bishops, St. Mary's, Portsea, of which both the Archbishop of Canterbury and the Bishop of Winchester held the vicariate at different times.

: The Week's Good Cause

An appeal on behalf of The Guild of Aid for Gentlepeople, by the Rt. Rev. the Lord Bishop of Bristol

The Guild of Aid for Gentlepeople was founded in 1904. It helps both men and women of gentle birth whose income is under £91 a year and who are too old or too ill to work. Preference is given to those who have no claim on any special fund (such as doctors, barristers, and so forth).
The help given takes the form of regular grants up to 10s. a week, with extra gifts for coal, holidays, and Christmas. There is a wardrobe department from which gifts are sent to others besides those in receipt of financial aid.
Votes are not required and suitable applicants are helped as funds permit: the decision of the Committee is final. Funds are greatly needed and gifts of clothes are always welcome.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to The Rt. Rev. the Lord Bishop of Bristol, Guild of Aid for Gentlepeople, [address removed]


Speaker: The Rt. Rev. the Lord Bishop of Bristol

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.
