Your Home and Mine
' A Roman Home in Britain '
G. M. BOUMPHREY
Throughout this term, and the next two terms, Geoffrey Boumphrey , still famous for his series ' Along the Roman Roads ', is going to talk to listeners once a week about their home and his. They must have dozens of different sorts of houses, and he is to explore with them as many types as he can, and see why they are built as they are, and why they stand where they do. He is to explore backwards as well as forwards, and see what sort of houses were built thousands of years ago. And he will explore the kind of houses people live in in other parts of the world-Indians and Zulus and Eskimos.
In his first talk, on September 24, he spoke of the tales that homes can tell, in his second he described how homes began, and in his third talk, last week, he discussed the past as it is revealed in very old homes. Today he is to describe a Roman house in Britain.

: British History

' The Language of England'
An illustrated talk written by SYBIL CLARKE
'Children that go to school learn to speak first English, and then are compelled to construe their lessons in French, and has been the custom since the Normans came to England.' (Before 1363.)
From the above quotation it can'be seen that French was spoken in England for three hundred years, but only of course by the nobles and those who had been to school. When English began to be written, the spelling was very different from what it is to-day. This afternoon listeners will hear how the Anglo-Saxon language changed slowly till it became what we now call English, and how it goes on changing all the time.

: Wellington

The Soldier as Statesman
The Lord ELTON
The Duke of Wellington, who was at one time the most popular man in England, and yet lived to see his windows broken by an infuriated London mob, has become something of a legend. Under the rule of this soldier-turned-statesman England came nearer to being a dictatorship than at any other time in recent history.
This afternoon Lord Elton is to examine the claims to greatness of this man, whose life story stretches from the wars against revolutionary France, when 'he broke the military power of Napoleon, to the middle of the nineteenth century.

Death and Transfiguration
This is one of the earliest of Strauss's symphonic poems, ft was completed in 1889 when the composer was only twenty-five. Originally, the score was prefaced by a poem of Alexander Ritter , which was, however, written after Strauss's music, and therefore may be considered as a kind of commentary on the music.
' Death and Transfiguration' is divided into four sections : (i) the sick man lies in his bed and dreams of * childhood's golden day ' ; (2) then comes a fierce, delirious fight with Death. Once again there follows stillness ; (3) the dying man reviews all his past life. At length there comes a briefer, fiercer struggle, in which Death strikes its final blow ; (4) the stillness of death is succeeded by the Transfiguration.
Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto
Tchaikovsky appears to have derived a great deal of pleasure from composing his Violin Concerto in D. In a letter to his publisher he said : ' I hit upon the idea quite accidentally, began to work at it, was completely carried away— and now the sketch is all but finished.' He dedicated it to Leopold Auer , but the latter failed to appreciate the work, so Tchaikovsky substituted the name of Adolph Brodsky , who performed it for the first time with the Vienna Philharmonic in 1881. Despite the melodiousness and brilliant showiness of the first and third movements, and the lyrical charm of the slow movement, the concerto was not a success, and many years passed before it became generally popular.

: PATRICIA ROSSBOROUGH Syncopated Piano Solos OLIVE BLAKENEY with PHILIP LEAVER

in ' Mrs. Tuttle Visits Paris' by PHILIP LEAVER
Versatility
Patricia Rossborough played the Beethoven Sonata Pathétique from memory at the age of nine and won a scholarship to the Birmingham School of Music. She remained a straight pianist until she came into broadcasting in 1926, when she won fame for her syncopated playing. In Savoy Hill days she used to sing at the piano. She was the first solo artist to go on the air from Broadcasting House.
She records, has made three films of herself doing her act, and is well known in cabaret and on the halls.
'Mrs. Tuttle visits Paris'
Olive Blakeney , an American actress' made her first appearance on the London stage at the Strand Theatre, as Ruby in Broadway, in 1926, and has been claimed by the London stage ever since. The Middle Watch, Leave it to Psmith, Orders are Orders are some of the well-known plays she has been in. Philip Leaver , wrote the story with music, Never Talk to Strangers, in which Gertrude Lawrence broadcast in August. He also acted in it.
This is the third ' Mrs. Tuttle ' of the series. Last time this amusing American lady visited Venice. No doubt, her visit to Paris will have similarly diverting results.

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.
