Interlude
2.5 Stories from World History
'Leonardo da Vinci '
A Dramatic Interlude written by HUGH ROSS WILLIAMSON
In the year 1483, Leonardo da Vinci wrote in a letter to the ruler of Milan: ' I can do anything possible to man.' Now this was not just boasting. Leonardo has been called a great painter, sculptor, poet, musician, inventor, scientist, mathematician, anatomist, zoologist, botanist, traveller, astronomer, and aeronaut ! But it is as an artist that he became most famous. He wrote:
' I can execute sculpture in marble, bronze, or clay ; also in painting I can do as much as anyone else, whoever he may be.' In today's broadcast you will meet this great man, and hear about some of the things he did.

' The Struggle for Existence '
A. D. PEACOCK , D.Sc., F.R.S.E.
(From Edinburgh)
In the two previous lessons listeners have been shown examples of man's struggle for life and for a living. If you look into the lives of all living things, you will see this same fact of struggle. Take two simple examples : of the thousands of seedlings descended from a single tree, or of the hundreds of tadpoles from a single frog, how many (or few) become adult ? Against what have they struggled ; and what has enabled some to achieve success ?

: THE NORTHERN IRELAND BRASS BAND

Conductor, Edward Furness
(From Belfast)
Tchaikovsky made more than one visit to Italy, and the Italian Capriccio, among the gayest and most care-free of all his works, was composed during a trip in 1880, most of which he spent in Rome. In a letter to Madame von Meek , Tchaikovsky says: I am working at an Italian Fantasia based on folk songs. Thanks to the charming themes, some of which I have taken from collections, and others which I have heard in the streets, this work will be effective.'

: A PIANOFORTE RECITAL

by Frederick Stone
(From Belfast)
Intermezzos
Some critics consider that Brahms's last groups of piano pieces, the Intermezzos Op. 117 and 118, are the finest and most characteristic of his compositions. If this may seem to genuine Brahmsians a one-sided statement, at least it shows that all are agreed that these pieces represent the master at his greatest. For those who are interested in the poetic ideas that stimulate a great composer's imagination, it is interesting to note that the Intermezzo Op. 117 No. 1 is headed by a quotation from one of Herder's Folk Songs-a German form of the Scots cradle song known as ' Lady Anne Both-well's Lament ' (to be found in Percy's ' Relics of Ancient English Poetry'). The lines (in the original Scots) begin:
Balow, my babe, lye still and sleipe. It grieves me sair to see thee weipe.
Rhapsodies
Brahms's two Rhapsodies, Op. 79, No. 1 in B minor, and No. 2 in G minor, were written in 1879 and dedicated to Elizabeth von Herzogenberg. When Brahms sent the MSS. to her he wrote: Can you suggest a better title than Rhapsody? You cannot suggest a better dedication-that is, if you will allow me to put your dear and honoured name on this trash.' Elizabeth von Herzogenberg, however, agreed that Rhapsody would perhaps be the best title, ' although the clearly defined form of both pieces seems somewhat at variance with one's conception of a rhapsody '.

: ECOLIERS ET ETUDIANTS FRANCAIS

L. E. Genisieux
These French talks, arranged by Emile Stephan , are intended for listeners in this country who understand the language well enough to follow a simple talk, and who are interested in learning something more than can be got from the average talk from abroad about foreign art, literature, and affairs. The series, which is to run until the end of June, has already introduced to listeners several distinguished Frenchmen who are over in this country. Darius Milhaud has spoken on modern French music ; Joseph Manchon on Normandy and the Normans; Marcel Ruff on Provence and the spirit of Provence ; Emile Stephan himself on Brittany and the Bretons -Maurice Thiery on the Revolution of February, 1848
(and this French wit is to talk on French wit next term).
L. E. Genisieux , who is to speak this evening on his own particular subject, is English representative of the Ecoles et Universites Franchises, and Lecturer at the Institut Frangais at South Kensington.

SOUTHAMPTON
Concert in the Guildhall
THE BBC
SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA
Leader, PAUL BEARD
Conductor,
SIR ADRIAN BOULT This concert is the second of a series of four provincial concerts planned for the 1936-1937 Season. In October last the Orchestra visited Hanley; on March 31 it will go to Edinburgh, and the last concert of the series will take place at Leeds on April 14. Southampton has for many years been anxious to receive the BBC Symphony Orchestra, but up to now the lack of a suitable hall has been Xan insuperable obstacle. For this reason the town has long been deprived of the chance of hearing a full-sized Symphony Orchestra, but the new Guildhall, which contains a magnificent concert-hall with seating accommodation for over 1,800, is ideal for the purpose. The hall, moreover, is equipped with a new organ, which will be used on this occasion, as there is a part for organ in both ' Cockaigne' and ' The Planets

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.
