2.5 Round the Country-Side Ⓓ ' How Seeds Travel'
C. C. GADDUM
Mr. Gaddum will talk about the various ingenious means that plants have adopted for the dispersal of their seeds. First he will deal with the fluffy seeds of such plants as the dandelion and thistle, which depend on the wind for their distribution ; next he will talk about the seeds of the burdock and goosegrass, which rely on animals for their transportation ; and finally with various foreign plants which have been brought back to England as botanical specimens, and are now spreading all over the country. Teachers will find it useful to have specimen seeds of the dandelion, goosegrass, sycamore, and burdock to show their classes.

: PROMENADE CONCERT

Part 1 from Queen's Hall, London
(Sole Lessees, Messrs. Chappell and Co. Ltd.)

Myra Hess (pianoforte)
The BBC Symphony Orchestra
(ninety players)
Leader, Paul Beard
Conducted by SIR HENRY J. WOOD
(Solo pianoforte, MYRA HESS)
The first movement of Schumann's Piano Concerto, composed in 1841, was intended at first to stand alone as a Fantasy. Four years later the other two movements were added to complete the concerto as we know it now. It is one of the finest piano concertos in the repertoire, and it contains all those features that a -good concerto should: deep musical feeling, virtuosity, and contrast.
Unlike the simple Fifth Symphony of Schubert, which was probably written more or less for amateur performance; the No. 9 in C major is designed on very much more elaborate and imaginative lines.
The latter was written a few months before he died in 1828 and rehearsed in his lifetime, but laid aside as too difficult. It was then taken off the shelf ten years later by Schumann, and first performed under Mendelssohn at a Gewandhaus concert in Leipzig in 1839. Finally, it was brought to London and laughed out of the rehearsal room in 1844, and did not receive its first performance until 1856 at the Crystal Palace.
It may be well to remind listeners that the' C major Symphony used to be known as No. 7, but last year the BBC decided to renumber it as No. 9, as it was written after No. 8, the ' Unfinished '.

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.
