6 — ' The Strong Monarchy '
RHODA POWER
' Henry is rich, has established good order in England, and keeps the people in such subjection as has never been the case before.'
This was written about Henry VII by two Spaniards who were in London in 1498. To-day listeners are to hear more of Henry and of his subjects, and how he laid the foundations of a strong monarchy.

7—' The Problem of Waste '
R. C. GARRY , M.B., Ch.B., D.Sc., Professor of Physiology, University College, Dundee, in the University of St. Andrews
If the ashes are. not raked out, a fire gradually sinks and dies, although the coal is not all burned. Ashes or waste accumulate also in the human body. This talk deals with the manner in which the human body removes waste. Reference will be made to past talks on the digestive canal, on the skin and on breathing, but the emphasis will be laid on the functions of the kidneys, those organs so important for the well-being of the body as a whole.

The A major Piano Concerto, one of the finest of all Mozart's concerted works, dates from March, 1786. In other words, it belongs to the Figaro period. It is one of three concertos composed for Mozart's subscription concerts in the Lent of that year, the other two being the E flat (K.482) and the C minor (K.491).
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, Op. 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.

The Negro composer William Grant Still was born in 1895. He studied at the Oberlin Conservatorium and is a pupil of G. W. Chadwick and Edgar Varese. He has made a special study of Negro spirituals, and intends to write a Negro opera. In his opinion America's chief contribution to music is rhythm, an element to which he pays special attention.
The Afro-American Symphony is a comparatively recent work, written in 1931. It has been performed in America by the Rochester Symphony Orchestra under Howard Hanson.

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.
