2-A Curious Plant-the Wild Arum '
C. C. GADDUM
For this broadcast, teachers are advised to have specimens of the Wild Arum or Cuckoo-pint, because it will be desirable for the children to pull the flowers to pieces in order to reveal the ingenious trap in which the plant catches insects. They are also recommended to have illustrations of the colt's foot and the sundew.
In this broadcast the following points will be dealt with: the first spring flowers; the unattractive colt's foot; the wild arum, and particularly the structure of this curious flower; and the trap for catching insects. C. C. Gaddum will explain how the insects are imprisoned and released after they have done what the plant needed. Finally, reference will be made to the sundew which not only catches insects. but eats them.

: The British Commonwealth and the Colonial Empire-3

' The Nature of the Commonwealth '
H. V. HODSON
History does sometimes get tired of repeating herself. Now and again she experiments with a fresh model-no doubt for future imitation. The British Commonwealth of Nations is a case in point. The British Empire had evolved into an organism so unlike any empire of the past that General Smuts's inspired phrase was badly needed to define its nature : a league of independent states held together by a common ancestry and by allegiance to one crown.
Like all living organisms, the Commonwealth is constantly evolving. It has changed even since General Smuts re-christened it nearly twenty years ago, and the course of its future development is of vital importance to the world.

Leader, ALFRED CAVE
Conducted by LESLIE HEWARD
Dvorak's Second Symphony
The numbering of Dvorak's Symphonies is a little misleading. Actually his first three symphonies were written as early as 1874-75, but two of these were suppressed till after his death while the third was issued only in a revised form as No. 3, Op. 76 '. In the meantime Dvorak had produced his so-called First and Second (really fourth and fifth) Symphonies, Opp. 63 and 70. The Second Symphony in D minor was composed in 1883-85 for the Royal Philharmonic Society, and Dvorak came to London to conduct the first performance in April, 1885. It is a magnificent work, a finer achievement than the far better-known Fourth and Fifth (' New World ') Symphonies, though its tragic nature will always stand in the way of its popularity.
Franck's Redemption'
Franck's Prelude to the second part of Redemption, a ' Poem Symphony ', or sacred Cantata, written in 1872, expounds the idea of man's redemption from the fruits of his selfishness and anger through the influence of Christian ideals and conduct. The Prelude is a blend of graceful melodic ideas, woven with all Franck's skill and dramatic power.
From (he Kalevala
'The Return of Lemminkainen' with 'The Swan of Tuonela ' form Two Episodes from the Kalevala '. ' The Return ' is scored for full orchestra in a brilliant and stirring manner, and the tempo is extremely rapid. It is intended to describe the return of Lemminkainen from his unsuccessful expedition against Pohjola.

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.
