The Direction of Shipping in Time of War
Sir ARTHUR SALTER , K.C.B.
Sir Arthur Salter , drawing upon his experiences in the war, will show in his talk tonight how necessary it was for the Government to take control of all shipping services, and explain how later it became necessary for a Central Council to take control of all the Allied shipping so that every ship could be used to its best advantage. He will also describe the difficulties of deciding whether munitions for the Front were more urgently required than food for the civil population. He will then go on to show how post-war inventions, especially the increased efficiency in the air, have affected the problem of the direction of shipping in time of war. He will describe the effect upon ports, railways, and roads which would be caused by the London docks being put but of action from the air, and will end with a vivid description of the problems facing those responsible for defence.
Sir Arthur, who has been Professor of Political Theory and Institutions at Oxford since 1934, and a Member of the Economic Advisory Council since 1932, was Assistant Director of Transports at the Admiralty in 1915, and Director of Ship Requisitioning in 1917. The following year he was Secretary of the Allied Maritime Transport Council and Chairman of Allied Maritime Transport Executive.

(Section D)
Led by MARIE WILSON
Conducted by LESLIE HEWARD
ADOLPH HALLIS (pianoforte)
ERNEST HALL (trumpet)
Shostakovitch's Concerto for piano, trumpet, and strings was first performed in England at a Promenade Concert on January 4, 1936. Like most of the music of the best contemporary Russian composers, the music of this Concerto avoids the exploitation of ultra-modern devices. In an article on this work M. D. Calvocoressi says : ' The whole scheme is based on dialogue and cooperation rather than on contrasts. The piano, in fact, has no solo of any importance except two brief ones in the finale. And-in keeping with the composer's policy of simplicity and moderation-the piano part is one that makes no demand whatever on virtuosity. On the other hand, the composer is not afraid of entrusting sustained melodies to the piano and asking it to sing.'

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.
