3-' Staplers and Adventurers '
RHODA POWER
Hardy he was and wise to undertake,
With many a tempest had his beard been shake. He knew well all the havens as they were, From Gotland to the Cape of Finisterre, And every creek in Britain and in Spain. His barge ycleped was the Madeleine.
These lines were written by Geoffrey Chaucer who thus described a shipman in his Canterbury Tales. This afternoon
Rhoda Power will introduce listeners to some mediaeval shipmen and the merchants whose cargoes were carried.
2.25 Interlude

Living Things: Their Vital Activities
3-' The Blood System '
R. C. GARRY , M.B., Ch.B., D.Sc, Professor of Physiology, University College, Dundee, in the University of St. Andrews
This talk extends the scope of Lesson 2 broadcast last week. The flow of blood through the arteries, capillaries, and veins is described, mention being made of the discovery of the circulation by William Harvey in the seventeenth century.
On a diagram in the pamphlet pupils have to trace out the complete circulation of the blood through the body and through the lungs, the changes which occur to the blood as it passes through the body and certain important organs being explained in simple fashion.

: A Pianoforte Recital by SHULA DONIACH

Composer and Pianist
Shula Doniach first studied the piano under Felix Swinstead at the Royal Academy of Music, where she was awarded the Hine Gift for composition. She continued under Pouishnoff, Harriet Cohen, and Matthay in London, and then went to Berlin and Budapest, finishing her studies at Vienna under Steuermann. Miss Doniach has appeared with great success all over Europe in the dual capacity of composer and pianist. Since her return from abroad she has founded and organised the Friends of Music Society. From the Law to Music
Johann Heinrich Rolle (1718-1785) came of a well-known German musical family. He was educated at the Leipzig University for the legal profession, but unabie to find a post in Berlin, he turned to music for a livelihood. In 1740 Rolle became a viola player in the Court Chapel of Frederick the Great, and in 1746 he was appointed organist at the Johanneskirche, Magdeburg, where he remained for the rest of his life. Like his contemporary Bach, his industry as a composer was immense. He composed innumerable large-scale works for his church, and a quantity of songs, organ, chamber, and orchestral music.

Leader, ALBERT VOORSANGER
Conductor, ELDRIDGE NEWMAN
LAURI KENNEDY (violoncello) From Leas Cliff Hall , Folkestone (Soloist, LAURI KENNEDY )
Boccherini was one of the foremost 'cellists of the eighteenth century, and also a composer of immense industry. It used to be said that he was a fountain of which it was only necessary to turn on the tap to produce a stream of music. He left no fewer than 467 instrumental works, including twenty symphonies, all of them marked bv simple, natural melodiousness and by a dignified and courtly style. He and Havdn had a great mutual regard, and the relation of Boccherini's music to that of the more famous master was characterised in the saying that ' Boccherini was the wife of Haydn '.
ORCHESTRA
Four pieces from the Ballet, Les Lutins (The Goblins)
Eldridge Newman
Valse lente (Cleopatra) Valse bluette (Pamela) The Fairy Anvils A la gavotte

(First broadcast performance)
A year or so ago Eldridge Newman conducted the BBC Orchestra in the first broadcast performance of Clifton Parker 's ballet Willow Pattern. After the concert the composer asked Mr. Newman what he should write next, and the tatter suggested a rumba, for he realised that the rhythm of this dance had excellent possibilities if freed from the limitations of the ballroom and treated symphonically. Clifton Parker 's ' Rumba ' was sketched out on the way home in the train, and a week later the score was completed and the first performance took place in the Leas Cliff Hall , Folkestone.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
