: COOKING

' Marmalade, Pancakes, and Savoury Pies'
Mrs. Arthur Webb
Mrs. Arthur Webb , who is to give a talk today on marmalades, pancakes, and savoury pies, has had a long and unusual training in cook-pry, and her experience and enthusiasm have made her a practical and Very sympathetic adviser.
In 1933 she gave the record number of 36 broadcasts on ' Economical Cookery', and the Pamphlets issued in connection with the talks had an enormous sale, while her correspondents ran into thousands. Each year since then Mrs. Webb has broadcast frequently, and her expert knowledge concerning the great variety of ways of preserving fruit and vegetables has proved most helpful to listeners.
She is a keen and accomplished gardener, and devotes much time to the cultivation of unusual vegetable.; and plants of value in the kitchen. She is to give a second cookery talk on February 20.

MUSIC
The Schwiller String Sextet :
Isidore Schwiller (violin) ; Gerald Emms (violin) ; Douglas Thomson (viola) ; Horace Ayckbourn (viola) ; James Phillips (violoncello) ;
Paul Talagrand (violoncello)
Dvorak's String Sextet in A was composed in 1878. The eminent Czech critic, Professor Sourek, sums up this work as follows: 'Each theme pulses with strong Slavonic life-blood ; each thought is coloured by national feeling and national ornamentation ; each folk mood is of the simplest and most sincere type ; not perhaps very profound, but full of a fascinating and fervent lyricism, moving in joyous and fiery rhythms. An outstanding feature, too, of the sextet is the fullness and brilliance of its melody, harmony, and sonority, to which the use of two violas and two 'cellos contributes substantially.'

The BBC Men's Chorus
Conductor,
Leslie Woodgate
Coleridge-Taylor's suite ' Othello ' was formed from the incidental music for Sir Herbert Tree's spectacular production of Shakespeare's play at
His Majesty's Theatre in 1911. It is interesting to note that No. 2, Children's Intermezzo, cost Coleridge-Taylor considerable trouble. Says W. C. Berwick Sayers, in his life of the composer: 'He was willing to try unto seventy times seven if necessary to accomplish his purposeWhat was wanted was a subdued chorus to be sung behind to convey a definite atmosphere to the scene. He made many attempts ; would bring a setting of it into the rehearsal, which Tree would pronounce to be good, but not quite what he wanted; and next day he would appear with an entirely new version, to meet with a like verdict.
This process was repeated until he almost despaired of producing the effect required. One day, however, when in the train on his way to Bath to conduct a concert, the unexpected light came, and at the first stop he left the train and telegraphed to Mr. Adolf Schmid: "I've got it ! " Next day the delicately beautiful chorus, which was so charming a feature of the play, was received at His Majesty's Theatre.'

: Short Story 'THE CASE FOR THE DEFENCE'

by E. M. Delafield read by Heather Mclntyre
Here is a moving, almost perfect, little story, by the author of 'A Provincial Lady '-with a somewhat cynical ending. The atmosphere of a court, a trial scene (that scene which in play or story grips us most of all). There is one woman on the jury. The working of her mind is the one important thing. The man who killed the other man by accident because of a girl, should he be found guilty of manslaughter ? Did he mean to do it? Was it done in self-defence? If found not guilty, would he ever be likely to commit the same crime again ? Would he have died at all if he hadn't had an abnormally thin skull ? ... Never mind the law, what was she to do ? She had to do her duty, though her heart swayed her. There were other jurors too. What was the verdict brought in ?

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.

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.
