: Travel Talk ' Eastern and Northern Europe '

—' Constantinople and the Straits
C. D. FORDE , Ph.D., Professor of Geography and Anthropology in the University of Wales
Professor Forde is thirty-four years of age. Since 1930 he has been Professor of Geography and Anthropology at the University of Wales. And between 1923 and 1928 he was an Assistant Lecturer at University College, London.
This afternoon he will take listeners from the port of Athens across the Aegean Sea to reach Constantinople-or, to give the Turkish name, Istanbul-and the Straits. A description of a journey through the Dardanelles with their bitter war memories and classical associations—the site of Ancient Troy is nearby-cannot fail to be interesting with such an excellent guide as Professor Forde.

(First Performance in England)
Music suffered a great loss when Alban Berg , Schonbcrg's most brilliant and promising pupil, died last Deceriiber.
One might say that what Schonberg achieved in theory Berg successfully applied in practice. That Berg was one of the most significant figures in contemporary music was made apparent by his opera Wozzeck, which shows the working of a highly original and resourceful musical mind, whose powers of invention and imagination were matters of fact not of opinion.
There are two features of exceptional interest and importance about the present Memorial Concert. First, Anton Webern , Schönberg's. other celebrated pupil and disciple, is; the conductor ; secondly, the American violinist, Louis Krasner , will give the first performance in England of Berg's last completed work, the Violirt Concerto which was commissioned by Louis Krasner just over a year sgo. While Berg was turning the project over in his mind, his friend Manon Gropius , the daughter of Mahler's widow, died in Vienna. He then decided to make the Concerto a requiem for Manon. The slow movement with its quotation of Bach's choral ' Es ist genug ' from the cantata 0 Ewigkeit. du Donnerwort is significant of the spiritual idea behind the music.

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.
