3—' Something about Bats'
RICHARD MORSE
Although a dozen or more different kinds of bats have been recorded in various parts of this country, comparatively little is known of their ways and habits of life. This is, of course. due largely to the fact that bats fly chiefly in dusk and darkness, and are therefore hard to observe.
But the bats are a peculiarly interesting group of animals, and their mastery of the air is, in some ways, even greater than that of the birds. In his talk this afternoon Mr. Richard Morse will deal with the structure and habits of some of the commoner British species, and will describe a few simple methods of investigating their twilight activities.
The .interest of the talk will be enhanced if teachers can provide illustrations of at least one or two species, such as the pipistrelle, the long-eared bat, and the great bat, or noctule.

I. Allegro assai; 2. Andante con moto ; 3. Allegro ma non troppo
Friedrich Wiihrer was born in Vienna in 1900. Like so many other distinguished executive artists, he began to play the piano at an early age. He received his first lessons at the age of six and at fifteen he entered the Vienna Academy of Music to study piano and composition. He was called up for military service in the last six months of the war, and served for a time at the front in the Austrian army. After the Armistice he returned to Vienna and began to read Law at Vienna University, and also continued his musical studies. Soon afterwards he was appointed professor of the piano at the Academy, but he resigned from the post in 1923 to devote himself to concert work. Two years later he went back to the Academy to direct the master classes, and in 1927 was appointed lecturer at the Hochschule fur Musik.
Mr. Wührer has toured with great success the principal cities of Germany, Russia, Switzerland, Austria, and England. During his visits to England Mr. Wiihrer has played Mendelssohn's
Piano Concerto in D minor with Sir Thomas Beecham , and also gave the first performance of Hans Pfitzner 's Piano Concerto at a Bournemouth Symphony Concert under Sir Dan Godfrey.

Sea Communications
'Life at Sea'
Captain JAMES GRIFFITHS
Last week's talk in this series showed how boys enter the Merchant Service, and discussed the question of hours of work at sea. Tonight Captain Griffiths, who must know as much about life at sea as any man alive, is to describe it to listeners. He will show how a crew signs on, the arrangements made for its safety and comfort by the Board of Trade, and the work done at sea.
Captain Griffiths was born in 1874 and went to sea at the age of fourteen, serving his time in sailing ships, trading round Cape Horn ; he gained his Master's certificate at the age of twenty-five, left sail and went into steam. He has been shipwrecked twice and on each occasion endured life in an open boat before being rescued. He is a Trustee of the National Union of Seamen and can speak with full knowledge of conditions at sea today. He served at sea during the war, was deputy Lord Mayor of Cardiff in 1923. 1924 and 1925, and was the first seaman to attain this position in the Port of Cardiff.

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.
