: 'APRIL TO JUNE'

A series of talks about the countryside
' The Cuckoo'
Eric Parker
Is the rhyme right? Does the cuckoo ever arrive here before April? Then the cuckoo's call ; does he really ' change his tune in June '? Where do cuckoos lay their 'eggs ? Do they carry their eggs in their mouths ? At what time of the year do cuckoos leave this country ? These are some of the questions that Eric Parker is to answer this evening.

: AMERICA TODAY

Land and People
S. K. Ratcliffe
The idea behind this new series of twelveweekly talks, some to be given from England and some from America, is to interpret the modern America to the British listener, largely in terms of its recent history. Why are the countries so different ? In today's introductory talk an attempt will be made to give listeners a general background against which all American problems must be studied, and to say something about the attempts of the American people to meet the challenge of their own land.
S. K. Ratcliffe , who has made regular visits to the United States for twenty-five years, is happily chosen to interpret the broad American scene to our own ' daily island life', to quote an American writer.

: MUSIC FOR WORSHlP—3

The Eighth Beatitude
' Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness sake, for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven' by César Franck (mezzo-soprano) (baritone) (bass)
The BBC Chorus (Section B)
Chorus Master, Leslie Woodgate
The BBC Orchestra (Section E)
Led by Laurance Turner
Conducted by Clarence Raybould
Bass solo, Not yet defeated, still my godlike power survives!
Chorus of the Just, Hear us, Justice eternal!
Bass solo, Insensates! this wild delusion provokes my scorn!
Mezzo-soprano solo, Stricken with sorrow, sad watch I'm keeping
Bass solo, Fatal doom she hath spoken!
Baritone solo, 0! ye righteous whom my Father sent
Celestial Chorus, Hosanna! Peace from God the Father
The idea of a musical setting of the Beatitudes, or even of the whole Sermon on the Mount, attracted Franck from the days of his early youth, but many years passed before he was able to find a suitable versified form of the text. At last a Mme Colomb , wife of a professor at the Versailles Lycee, provided him with a libretto, and he sketched out the music of the first two Beatitudes in the autumn of 1870. But the work was not finished till 1879 and it had to wait even longer before the first performance, which was given in 1891, a year after the composer's death.

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.
