Regional Geography
' Northern Andes of Colombia and Venezuela'
L. DUDLEY STAMP, D.Sc.
Last week listeners heard all about a trip through the Panama Canal, and this morning they are to explore
Colombia, in the extreme North-
West of South America. They will visit Buenaventura, which was destroyed by fire not many years ago and is still a mass of wooden huts. It is always hot and always damp here, being so near to the Equator ; and listeners may not be sorry to leave it, which they will do by train
(which does not run every day) into the interior. They will reach the capital of Colombia, Bogota and find that there are very different climates and cultivations in the hills and in the valleys. Back to Buenaventura, and Dr. Stamp will take them on a steamer southwards down the Pacific ... and so to Guayaquil, the principal port of Ecuador.

: THE BOURNEMOUTH MUNICIPAL ORCHESTRA

Leader, Bertram Lewis
Conductor, Richard Austin
Solo violoncello, Feuermann from the Pavilion Bournemouth
Scored for only wood-wind, two horns and strings, Delius's ' A Song before Sunrise ' begins with a fresh, happy melody given chiefly to the strings in nine parts, with little snatches of tune on the wood-wind breaking in on it. The music changes to a more flowing measure and sinks to very soft tone, and after a moment of sudden strength and energy returns to the opening melody.
Dvorak's single 'Cello Concerto was written in the early 'nineties, soon after his return from America, and belongs to the period of the ' New
World ' Symphony and the ' Nigger' Quartet. But there is practically no trace of Negro colouring in the Concerto. As in the ' New World' Symphony, a motto theme dominates the whole work. Here, the motto theme is the first tune of the first movement ; it is heard on the clarinets and bassoons, and cropt up frequently in this and the succeeding movements.
The Concerto was first played in London in March, 1896, and was then lost sight of for a time. Not only are the possibilities of the solo instrument in this concerto exploited with admirable effect, but the interest is equally distributed between the soloist and the orchestra, quite in the modern manner.
A Noted 'Cellist
Emanuel Feuermann was born in 1902, in Poland. His father gave him his first 'cello lessons, and later he studied under Professor Walter in Vienna, in which town he made a sensational debut at the age of twelve. He was immediately engaged for a series of concert tours, and appeared with outstanding success with the Berlin, Vienna, and the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestras. During 1917-1919 he completed his studies under Julius Klengel and in 1929 was appointed to the Faculty of the Berlin Hochschule.
' The Return of Lemminkainen', with ' The Swan of Tuonela ', forms ' Two Episodes from the Kalevala '. The Return ' is scored for full orchestra in a brilliant and stirring manner, and the tempo is extremely rapid. It is intended to describe the return of Lemminkainen from his unsuccessful expedition against Pohjola.

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.
