Mrs. ARTHUR WEBB
In this talk Mrs. Arthur Webb will describe some of the methods of preserving fruit not only in the special jars made for the purpose, but also in jam jars with home-made covers.
Fruit bottling is really profitable when advantage is taken of heavy crops in the garden, or cheap sound fruit is in the market to preserve skilfully for storing, for use when fruit is scarce and expensive.
For the purpose of bottling, there is first the homely rhubarb, then green gooseberries. Although in its season when it is plentiful we may undervalue rhubarb, its fresh, rich flavour will be much appreciated when bottled and available for use in winter.

'Danse macabre'
Saint-Saens's 'Danse macabre' describes a scene in a graveyard at night; the clock strikes and Death appears, knocks on the graves, and starts tuning his fiddle. In answer to his summons, several skeletons appear and; dance wildly to ;Death's fiddling. Presently the cock crows, the dance ceases, and all disappear as day breaks.
Henry Litolff (181 8-1 891) was the son of a French soldier who came to England from the Peninsula as a prisoner of war, and married an English lady. He first appeared in public at the age of twelve as a child prodigy pianist, and then for a number of years travelled extensively as a concert pianist. Eventually, he settled in Paris and devoted himself largely to composition, producing several operas, a good deal of symphonic music, and many pianoforte pieces, some of which are still played.

: A Pianoforte Recital by EDUARD STEUERMANN

Eduard Steuermann studied the piano under Busoni and composition under Schdnberg. He made his first appearance with an orchestra in England at a Promenade Concert in 1931. His interests as a pianist are catholic in that he includes in his repertoire all the great piano music from Bach to Bartok, and he is considered one of the outstanding interpreters of contemporary music. '
It is interesting to note that although Mr. Steuermann shows such a live interest in the extreme moderns, he has also edited an edition of the complete piano works of Brahms.

' Running the Ship : Liners '
Lord ESSENDON
Lord Essendon, who is Chairman of the Furness Withy Line and of the Royal Mail, and a Director of the Cunard White Star Line, has been connected with the shipping industry for over fifty years. And listeners will find in his talk not only an intimate knowledge of the tiniest detail of ships afloat, but almost a lyric love of these ships.
He will describe the evolution of the liner from a ship which Dr. Johnson said was far less comfortable than gaot into the luxurious floating hotel and railway it is today. The planning oft he ship, its construction, the concern for the safety of passengers and crew, the difficulties of catering, cargo, the infinitesimal cost of freight, the economic difficulties of our times, the skill, courage, and loyalty of the personnel-these among other things will be dealt with in Lord Essendon's talk.

Garden
In Act III of Puccini's Tosca Cavara dossi is seen writing a letter of farewell 'on the battlements of Sant' Angelo prison. He soliloquises over the past in the aria ' When the stars were brightly shining '. Tosca comes to explain that dummy bullets are to be used for the execution. The firing party take up their positions. Cavaradossi falls. Tosca gives the signal for him to get up, but the execution, unfortunately, is a real one.
Guards rush up to arrest Tosca for the murder of Scarpia. She pushes them aside and throws herself over the parapet.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
