From page 109 of ' New Every Morning '

: For the Schools: Regional Geography: The Andean Republics: 1: Desert Coastlands

L. Dudley Stamp, DSc
You will remember that a fortnight ago you arrived with Dr Dudley Stamp at Guayaquil, chief port of Ecuador. Today you are to travel south with him on the same steamer as you were on before, and this time you will arrive at the port of Talara, in the extreme north of Peru - notable for the discovery of oil there. Though you will have come only a little way south of the Equator, the whole appearance of the country will have changed. You will see for the first time the great stretch of desert which runs southward along the coast of South America, throughout the country of Peru, and through the northern half of Chile, for something like two thousand miles.

' Drainage and Turnips'
A Dramatic Interlude written by B. A. KEEN , D.Sc., F.R.S.
In the seventeenth century the men who lived in the Fens thought that the proposal to drain their marsh-land would mean disaster for them. They rowed in boats and lived on fish and fowl. It was written in a satirical ballad, ' And where we feed, in Fen and Reed, they'll feed both Beef and Bacon '. Today you will hear how in spite of adverse opinions the Fens were drained and how the people of England by improving their land were able to feed and clothe a larger number of people in this island.

Solo pianoforte, Edwin Fischer from the Pavilion, Bournemouth
(Soloist, EDWIN FISCHER )
Brahms's Piano Concerto No. 1, in D minor was composed during the years 1853-8. It was his first work of really large dimensions. ' It is in reality', says Kalbeck, ' his first symphony and was also conceived as such. Merely disguised as a sonata for two pianos, it ultimately emerged as a piano concerto, but the latter took the form of a symphony with piano obbligato and, in this form, ushered in a new type of composition ... The grandiose opening of the Concerto-with its rolling drum-held organ points and its sinister leaping principal subject, on which, like a mighty shiver convulsing the whole orchestra, the ensuing jerky trills are grafted - originates in Brahms visualising Schumann's attempt at suicide by throwing himself in the Rhine
It is supposed by Kalbeck that the original symphony from which this concerto is mainly derived was intended to represent in terms of music the spiritual story of the Schumann tragedy. It will be remembered that Schumann was one of Brahms's greatest friends and before he died in a lunatic asylum he attempted suicide by throwing himself in the Rhine.
The underlying idea of Debussy's ' Fetes ', the second of three Nocturnes for orchestra, is ' the movement, the dance-rhythm of the atmosphere, with flashes of sudden radiance. There is also the episode of a procession, a dazzling and entirely imaginary vision, which passes through this atmospheric festivity and becomes absorbed in it. But the background remains. The festivity continues with its blending of music with luminous dust participating in the rhythm of the whole '.

: ESTA STEINAND HER YIDDISHCHAUVE-SOURIS COMPANY

in A Programme of Music, Drama, and Sketches under the direction of Joseph Greenspun
The Orchestra conducted by Harold Lowe
Esta Stein and her Yiddish Chauve-Souris Company, under the direction of Joseph Greenspun , made their radio debut in April, 1932, from Glasgow, and have been on the air from one station or another many times since then. Their programmes are distinctive and original, and their repertoire includes poems and sketches by great Yiddish writers. Although some of the items are given in Yiddish, all essential speech is given in English, so that broadcasts are clear to everyone.
Tonight's programme is to open with two typical Yiddish numbers, then Joseph Greenspun is to give a dramatic episode on his own, ' Seder Night '. Esta Stein will follow with an act introducing several songs, the programme ending with two more numbers in Yiddish. Once again a feature of the broadcast will be the singing of the Jewish Male Choir, conducted by I. R. Berman.

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.
