2.5 Stories from World History
' A Knight of the Middle Ages '
Dramatic Interlude written by HUGH Ross WILLIAMSON
' Fair son, the first thing I teach thee is to mould thy heart to love God ... Let thy heart be gentle and compassionate towards the poor, the unfortunate, and the afflicted, and comfort and help them so far as in thee lies.' This is what St. Louis wrote for his son, to tell him how a true knight should behave. Today you are going to hear something of what it meant to be a knight in the Middle Ages and especially about one of the most famous knights of the fourteenth century — Bertrand du Guesclin.

' Man against Insects '
A. D. PEACOCK , D.Sc., F.R.S.E.
(From Edinburgh)
All over the world insect pests of many kinds threaten man's well-being. They are a menace to his food, his clothes, his shelter, and his health. They are carriers of disease not only among mankind, but among the plants we eat, so that plants, being inlected, perish.
The green fly is an enemy of the rose tree, and the black fly of the broad bean. A gardener may pull up his carrots and find them riddled with holes made by the grubs that prey on them, and the slug and the snail are murderers of the seedlings. In tropical countries white ants eat furniture, and a cloud of locusts is a modern as well as an ancient plague.
Man fights insect pests in many ways: by traps, by poison, by fire ; and even by setting one insect against another, or by encouraging insect-eating birds. But let it be remembered that all insects are not pests. Some, like wasps, feed their young on our insect enemies ; some, like bees, fertilise our flowers ; and some, like ladybirds, destroy the green fly that kills the rose.

: VARIATIONS FOR PIANOFORTE-3

played by Harry Isaacs
Brahms wrote two sets of Variations in the Key of D major which he published in 1861, as opus 21. In his study of Brahms, William Murdoch points out that ' these two sets are rarely performed in public-rather are they looked upon as preparatory studies for the wonderful sets that were to come later, which were finally to stamp Brahms as the greatest master of variation form since Beethoven, and place him on the same level as Bach and Beethoven in wealth of ideas and individuality of conception. We also find in these two sets the beginning of a new technique-the big skips, the cross rhythms, the interweaving of parts, and the constant use of split octaves.'

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.

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