'Inventors and Inventions'
HELEN CRAIG DAVIS
Most of us, Helen Craig Davis believes, have a bright idea at some time or other which might develop into a profitable invention if we would concentrate on it and visualise it and develop it; but few of us do. And those who would certainly go on with the thing, in nine cases out of ten have not the least idea how to set about it.
Now Helen Craig Davis is an inventor herself, and comes into the open in this talk to give away her secrets and tell would-be inventors just what to do. But don't let them suppose that everything they think of is going to bring them in a fortune. Probably most of their brain-waves in some form or other are on the market already.

: It's Happening Now

HOWARD MARSHALL and others
Broadcast from the Pioneer Health Centre, Peckham
This new series aims at telling listeners what is happening now in Britain in the way of social experiments. People engaged in the experiments are to speak of such things as Land Settlement, Nursery Schools, the Youth Hostel Association, Women's Institutes, and so forth, and Howard Marshall , who is to act as compere throughout, will try to discover how the particular experiment applies to the ordinary man, woman, and child for whom it is meant.
Tonight, in the opening broadcast, listeners are to hear about what Kenneth Adam described in a recent number of The Listener as the ' Peckham Pioneers '. The Peckham Health Centre is a dream realised by Dr. G. Scott Williamson and a woman doctor called Innes Pearse. Recreation, and advice on health for everyone, and all for a shilling a week.

: Tudor String Music-I

THE WILLOUGHBY STRING
QUARTET:
Louis Willoughby (violin); Clayton Hare (violin); Max Gilbert (viola);
Peter Beavan (violoncello)
JAMES WHITEHEAD
The string fantasia was the instrumental counterpart of the sixteenth-century madrigal and motet, and owed its style directly to those choral works deemed ' apt for voices or viols Dowland's ' Lachrimae' is one of the most important works in this series. The texture is contrapuntal throughout after the fashion of some highly elaborate motet, yet the music is conceived from an instrumental standpoint. John Dowland (1563-1626) was an outstanding figure in English music. He was a Bachelor of Music at both Oxford and Cambridge Universities, and spent much of his life abroad. The ' Lachrimae ' are dedicated to Queen Anne of Denmark, and were published in London in 1603. Orlando Gibbons (1583-1625) was a composer of the greatest importance in the history of English music. The ' Fantasies ' for strings are an excellent example of the fantasy form, and remarkable for their rhythmic freedom. Further broadcasts in this series will be given as follows : Tuesday (National
7.10), Wednesday (National 7.40), Thursday (National 9.20), and Saturday (Regional 10.0).

: ' Money with Menaces '

In this new radio play are two of the essentials of radio drama-a few well-defined characters and suspense.
On a hot summer's day
Andrew Carruthers , newspaper proprietor, is rung up at his office by a man whom he has never heard of in his life. The man gives his nom de plume, or nom de guerre, as Mr. Poland, and the magnate's dictatorial tone alters on finding out that ' we know something..... We know you have a daughter, to begin with.' And they know that she is eleven years old, and the colour of her hair and eyes, and her name. They know that Mr. Canuthers's family are out and that Jennifer left the house to go to a friend's.
' What do you want with me ? '
Throughout a hot summer's afternoon Mr. Andrew Carruthers , to get Jennifer back, goes here and there under orders, and wherever he goes that same voice rings up to give him further instructions.
The denouement is a classic in the way of surprises.

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.
