Regional Geography
' The Monsoon Lands-I. Siam '
ERKEST YOUNG
Talks this term on regional geography are to deal with the Oriental world. Both native life and modern industries will be considered, and contrasts between new and old will be illustrated. The broad contrasts between India, China, Japan, and the East Indies will Le brought out, and the fundamental differences between Hindu, Chinese, and Japanese civilisations made clear.
Today, in the first talk of the term,
Mr. Ernest Young will contrast the densely-populated alluvial plain of Central Siam with the forested uplands of the North, and these, again, with the dry open forest and swamps in the Semun basin, in the East. In this part of the country (which is away from livers) the lack of water is as serious as are the summer floods from the Menham river in Central Siam. Mr. Young will discuss the teak trade and its exploitation in the North ; and describe Bangkok with its palaces and temples, and Chinese everywhere.

: Discovering England ' Yorkshire I, Introduction' FRANK WHITAKER

This term is to be devoted to discovering Yorkshire, and it is to be discovered in seven talks and a dramatic interlude, for the county of Broad Acres, as it is called, is so big and contains such a variety of places to explore that all this time will be needed to describe it.
Hills and moors and coal-pits are only a part of the county. Not many miles away are some of the loveliest dales in England. Yorkshire, with its rich fertile vale of York, with York its capital citv, with its busy port of Hull and its coast line'120 miles long, is divided into three Ridings, and today, in his introductory talk, Frank Whitaker is to tell listeners among other things what a Riding is. Further speakers in the series are announced in the article ' Introducing Yorkshire ', by W. I. Andrews .. , which will be found on page 6.

'The New World of America takes
Shape'
EILEEN POWER, Professor of Economic History in the University of London

In this talk and the one that follows next week, the story will be told of how the New World took shape ; how the Spanish and Portuguese colonies became independent States ; how the United States of America grew into a great nation ; how the Civil War brought about the freeing of the slaves ; and how Canada became a self-governing Dominion of the British Empire.

: ' Aida' Act I of the Opera by Verdi

Scene I : The Hall in the palace of the King at Memphis
Scene 2 : In the Temple of Vulcan at
Memphis
Cast
Conductor, VINCENZO BELLEZZA
Chorus Master, ROBERT AINSWORTH from the Royal Opera House, Covent
Garden
Aida is one of the most melodious and genial of all Verdi's operas. It was commissioned by the Khedive of Egypt who wanted an opera of exceptional splendour to display the resources of his fine theatre at Cairo. Thus Verdi chose a subject that centred round Pharaoh's brilliant court, which was carried out by three collaborators. In style Aida, which was first performed in December, 1871, may be considered transitionary in that it both conforms to the conventions of Verdi's earlier operas, yet at the same time, particularly in the third act, anticipates the later style of Otello and Falstaff.
In Act I Ramphis, High Priest of'the Egyptians, tells Radames that it is decreed that he shall lead the army against the Ethiopians. Radames is deeply in love with Aida, daughter of the Ethiopian king, Amonasro, but now captive at the Egyptian Court. Amneris, the Egyptian Princess, also loves Radames, and finding him indifferent towards her, watches him and Aida. The rest of the act is concerned with the investiture and consecration of Radames as Commander.

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.
