: BOOK TALK

Holiday Reading
Edward Harvey
Many listeners will remember Edward Harvey 's talk in the ' Swapping Horses ' series in April. In that talk he told how, having lost a good job in one of the dead industries of Merseyside, he and his wife (who has also broadcast) took a small general shop in a working-class district of Liverpool.
A man with such experience may be trusted to take a broad view of holiday reading, a term wide enough in itself to catch nearly everything from the whale-like classical novel to the magazine-story minnow.

BRAHMS

Leader, Paul Beard
Conducted by SIR HENRY J. WOOD
Academic Festival Overture
Brahms in 1880 was made Director of Philosophy at the University of Breslau. It was necessary that he should submit a thesis in the form of a composition, which resulted in the Academic Festival Overture. Brahms thought of the happy idea of basing this work on three well known German students' songs. 'The Father of his Country', the ' Freshman's Song ', and ' Gaudeamus igitur '.
8.14 Pianoforte concerto No. 1, in D minor
1 Maestoso. 2 Adagio. 3 Rondo : Allegro non troppo
(Solo pianoforte, CLIFFORD CURZON )
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.

The British Association at
Nottingham
The Opening
Julian Huxley
(From Midland)
This is the second of a number of talks on this year's British Association meeting at Nottingham. After describing the opening of the meeting this evening, Julian Huxley will discuss the History of Thought on Evolution, the subject of the presidential address.
Tomorrow listeners will hear an impression of the Economics Section's discussion. This will deal with the problems raised by the movement of numbers of workers with' their families to districts where there are jobs for them, problems that affect the workers themselves, the community they have left, and that to which they have gone. On Friday, Dr. Kaye, Superintendent of the Physics Department at the National Physical Laboratory, will tell listeners something about recent attempts to solve problems of noise, e.g., of overhead footsteps and of office typewriters. More talks on the meeting will be broadcast next week.

: MOOD AND MOVEMENT

Reflections on the Art of Reading Poetry, with illustrations from the work of L. A. G. Strong
Readers: L. A. G. Strong and Elizabeth Latham
L. A. G. Strong has been so successful as a novelist that many people probably forget that he has also achieved considerable distinction as a poet. Tonight listeners will hear him and Miss Latham reading some of his own poetry, not so much for its own sake as to illustrate his views on the proper speaking of verse. He has chosen his own work for this purpose only, he says, because I can be expected to have some idea of how it ought to sound, and because no other poet will be able to complain that his work is being misinterpreted '.

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.
