Regional Geography
' South-East Coastlands and High
Basins of Mexico '
0. Schmieder, Ph.D.
This morning Professor Schmieder is to take you in imagination from Jamaica (where you finished your Voyage last week) through the Yucatan Strait and down the Gulf of Mexico to Vera Cruz. In exploring Mexico with him you will learn quite a lot of history and get a vivid idea of Mexico as it was before it was conquered by the Spaniards, and as it is today.
You will accompany him on the twelve-hour train journey to Mexico City, visualise the tropical forests on both sides of the line, and learn something of the climate and background of the country. Then a visit with Professor Schmieder to a typical Mexican village-one in which he lived for several months ; a village of one-roomed houses and no beds ; and you will learn the reason why.
Professor Schmieder, who occupies the chair at the University of Kiel is an authority on Mexico, where he has lived and worked for a considerable time.

Solo pianoforte, York Bowen from the Pavilion, Bournemouth Although Chausson's Symphony in B flat is an extremely individual work, in certain more or less superficial characteristics it shows the influence of Franck. Particularly is this true of some of Chausson's melodies and his use of the ' cyclic ' form. The first movement, which begins with a slow section introducing the principal theme that plays such an important part throughout the work, is very dramatic in character. The slow movement is deeply felt music and contains many beautiful touches of harmonic and orchestral colour. The third and last movement is full of great vitality and power, and is heroic in character. One of the most striking features of the whole work is the mastery that Chausson shows in handling the orchestral palette.

Led by Laurance Turner
Conducted by Constant Lambert
Maurice Cole (pianoforte) ' Pelleas and Melisande ' suite consists of the preludes to the four acts of Maeterlinck's play. The music is of the utmost simplicity and the scoring - two flutes, two oboes, two clarinets, two bassoons, four horns, timpani, harp and strings -is a model of clarity and restraint, yet its effect is magical. The curious atmosphere of elusiveness and tragedy that pervades the whole of Maeterlinck's play is suggested in Faure's music with extraordinary insight.

: Shakespeare: Shakespeare on the Modern Stage

Tyrone Guthrie
Today Tyrone Guthrie is to speak of how Shakespeare's plays are tackled in the theatre of today, and of the problems to be faced in presenting them to a modern audience. No one can know those problems better than this season's producer at the Old Vic. The other week he produced Hamlet there, with Laurence Olivier in the name part. Hamlet is to be followed by Guthrie's production of Twelfth Night.
He made his first professional appearance, in repertory, at the Playhouse, Oxford, in 1924, and for the next two years he was with the BBC at Belfast. In 1926 and 1927 he produced for the Scottish National Players, and then returned to the BBC to produce radio plavs at Savoy Hill. In September, 1933, he joined the Old Vic-Sadler's Wells Company as producer. He is the author of the radio plays Squirrel's Cage and The Flowers are Not for You to Pick.

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.

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.
