JAN DER GUCHT (tenor)
(First Performance)
(Conducted by THE COMPOSER)
Haydn Wood began his career as a professional violinist of no mean ability, and as a composer of serious concert music. He then discovered that he had a gift for composing ballad songs and therefore decided to devote himself entirely to this branch of composition, with the result that all the world knows.
Among Haydn Wood 's serious works, all of which show a mastery of handling the larger musical forms and a charming and fertile melodic invention are Piano and Violin Concertos, concert overtures, suites, and tone poems. His Manx Overture ' The Isle of Mountains and Glens ' was the outcome of his long association with the Isle of Man. The themes, however, are original and not folk tunes, although Haydn Wood has endeavoured to give them a Manx flavour. The work is dedicated to His Excellency the Lieutenant-Governor of the Isle of Man, Sir Montagu Butler.

: Scientists at Work

' The Humanity of Science'
A. V. HILL, F.R.S.
In this series of talks, which began on October 6, and is to finish tonight, working scientists themselves have told listeners about the investigations on which they are engaged, the problems they are faced with, and the methods they are using to solve them. Insect pests, invisible viruses, cosmic rays with powers of penetration hitherto unimagined, the working of the human ear, colours in flowers, missing links in Africa—such things as these are being investigated and all have been dis-, cussed in the series.
Tonight, in the concluding talk,
Professor Hill, one of the most distinguished physiologists in the world, is going to show how a great deal of very important scientific work has been the outcome of social needs ; and how, through research work and experiment out of which inventions come, the scientist has a real place in the community.
Professor Hill won the Nobel Prize for Medicine in 1922. He is Honorary Professor at University College, London; has been Foulerton Research Professor for the Royal Society since 1926, and has just been re-elected its Secretary.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
