' Among the Mountains on India's
North-West Frontier '-2
Mrs. E. 0. LORIMER
This morning Mrs. Lorimer is to give the second of her four talks about the People of Hunza whom she knows so well. Life is not easy there, and Spartan simplicity is the rule in every aspect of their life. The children have their essential tasks and perform them cheerfully ; the woman of the house husbands the year's supply of flour, dried apricots, wool, and goat's hair. ' I have a most competent wife', is a man's proudest boast.
Mrs. Lorimer was, before her marriage, Tutor in Germanic Philology at Somerville College, Oxford, and has acted as her husband's private secretary in all his language work on Pushtu (the language of the Afghans), Persian dialects, and other languages of the Hindu Kush besides Burushaski. They twice lived among the Hunza people- for four years when Colonel Lorimer was Political Agent in Gilgit and again when they returned to Hunza two years ago.

The service to be held at St. Paul's
! Cathedral this morning celebrates the centenary of the granting of a Charter by William IV to the University of London. Before 1836 there were two colleges-University College and King's College-but neither had the power to confer degrees. So a third body was formed - London University -with the power to do so, and University and King's are colleges within the University.
There are to be three processions of present and past graduates, and distinguished men, both British and foreign, who have been granted honorary degrees on the occasion of the centenary celebration.
Among those who have been thus honoured are Sir William Bragg , Dr. Vaughan Williams , and Mr. H. G. Wells , all well known to listeners and the latter a graduate of the University, and among distinguished foreigners honoured are Professor Einstein and Senor Don Ramon Perez de Ayala, the Spanish novelist and poet who was also Spanish Ambassador to the Court of St. James's.
The Lord Mayor of London will be present with his own procession, and the Chancellor of the University, the Earl of Athlone, will be in the last procession-and actually the last to enter the Cathedral. It is hoped that listeners will hear the huge doors of St. Paul's close after him.

: A Pianoforte Recital

by JOHN WILLS It is curious that the piano was
Cesar Franck 's first and last love. In the full flush of youthful enthusiasm he wrote a number of piano pieces and then for nearly forty years the piano had no place in his scheme of things. However, at the age of sixty-two realising a dearth of serious modern compositions for the piano, Franck set to work on several ambitious compositions to fill the gap. One of the finest was the ' Prelude, Choral, and Fugue', which was first performed by Mme. Poitevin at a concert of the Society Nationale de Musique in 1885. Vincent d'Indv tells us that ' Franck started with the intention of simply writing a prelude and fugue in the style of Bach, but he soon took up the idea of linking these two movements together by a Chorale, the melodic spirit of which should brood over the whole work '.

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
