Music and Movement-2
For Juniors
ANN DRIVER
Today's broadcast is mainly a revision of the previous lessons. The children will have the experience of ' two ', ' three ', ', and ' four '-time, first by carrying them out in various movements, such as chipping, hammering, and hauling ; and then by beating drums to these various bar-times, which they will also recognise in singing, and moving to, the following songs : ' When Johnnv comes marching home (2/4), ' The Ash Grove ' (3/4). and ' Men of Harlech ' (4/4).

: Music and Movement—I

For very young children
ANN DRIVER
The children will be encouraged to move round the room in walking, running, skipping, and galloping step. Then some every-day movement will be suggested to them, such as the bouncing and catching of a ball, or the flight and landing of an aeroplane. They will carry these out with some slight suggestions from the broadcaster. After any strenuous exercise a period of complete relaxation is allowed, when music is played to the children. The lesson usually ends with dancing.

Faure had a great power of lyrical expression. His music abounds with beautiful and finely drawn melodies. A consummate craftsman and a harmonist of considerable range and subtlety, everything he wrote is highly polished and designed with an unerring sense of balance and clarity of style. Indeed, Debussy once said that the graceful fleeting lines of Faure's music ' may be compared to the gesture of a beautiful woman without either suffering by the comparison'.
The Piano Quartet is an early work- it was written in 1879. Its four movements, including a delicious scherzo of gossamer-like texture, show the composer's mastery of classical construction and his sensitiveness for colour. The music is full of lovely tunes and supple and striking rhythms, and the development of the themes is carried out with ingenuity and a keen ear for sonorous effect.

: Sea Power

Instruments of Sea Power
The Disposition of Merchant Vessels at Sea, Distribution of the Fleet, Naval
Bases, and Mercantile Harbours
Admiral Sir RICHARD WEBB , K.C.M.G,
Tonight Admiral Sir Richard Webb , who was President of the Royal Naval College at Greenwich, and Admiral Commanding the Royal' Naval War College, from 1926 to 1929—the year he retired from the Navy-is to give the second talk in the last series of ' Down to the Sea in Ships \
He is to discuss the instruments of sea power, namely, those weapon-carriers suitable for the purpose : the heavy ships, the lesser ships or cruisers, and the flotillas of smaller craft-flotillas including three types : the surface vessel (destroyers and sloops) ; the underwater type (submarines); and aircraft. He will discuss the functions of the several types, which arc governed by the duties they have to perform in maintaining sea power and in kepping open the trade routes, along which the foodstuffs and raw materials essential to our life as a nation pass.
Then he will deal witjj the vital question of bases, which are essential for a fleet to enable it to refit, take in stores, and afford rest for crews of smaller ships ; and he will say something about the purposes of bases—not least among their functions being that of fuelling a fleet.
Finally, he will review the introduction of oil, which means profound change, both statistically and technically, and a further profound change caused by the advent of aircraft.

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.

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.
