© ' History in the Making'
Introductory talk
K. C. BOSWELL
The first broadcast this term of ' History in the Making' has been designed to emphasise the principal aims of this series. These are to encourage listeners to see the other point of view, get down to facts, and trace causes. This introductory broadcast finds three people-K. C. Boswell , an elementary school teacher, and a somewhat loutish young man-in a railway carriage together. The three discuss what is happening in the world, and how these happenings can be understood by the layman. School broadcaster, school history teacher, and a member of the public who has not troubled to inform himself on affairs, are thus enabled to demonstrate the effectiveness of the course's aims.

8.38 Wanderlust and Waltz Scene
(from the Opera, Intermezzo)
Nearly fifty years have passed since Strauss startled the complacency of the world of music with his tone poem ' Don Juan '. Despite the lesson of Wagner, conservative critics, professional musicians, and plain men attacked Strauss for being an extremist and a cacophonist, and some even linked his name with Ibsen and Maeterlinck because of the corruptness and indecency alleged to be found in his music ! Almost up to the War he was largely considered something of an enfant terrible.
The style and idiom of his music derive from Brahms, Liszt, and Wagner. He began as a loyal adherent of classical tradition, with Brahms as the figure-head. Apart from his great constructive skill, power of thematic development, and brilliant orchestral virtuosity, the eloquence and lyrical beauty of so many of his themes and the rhythmic vitality of the music as a whole are features that have an immediate and vivid appeal.

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.
