2.5 Travel Talk
Ⓓ In the Parklands (Guiana) '
HECTOR ELWES
Last week listeners heard about the ' rain forest' in British Guiana. Today they are to hear about the savannahs or parklands. Hector Elwes will tell listeners how he once went right up on the savannahs in the interior of the country, up near the Brazilian border, to look at cattle reared on the ranch there. He will describe the journey by steamer up a river called the Berbice until rapids made it necessary to change to a canoe. He will describe the country and the birds and animals he saw ; and will relate how he and his party slept each night on the shore in Indian hammocks, and how they eventually reached the cattle tracks and took to horseback. Listeners will hear of the tropical forest they passed through, and of the ranch they reached at last, and how Mr. Elwes returned with a herd of cattle to take down to the coast.

: PUT TO THE TEST-3

Arranged by S. E. Reynolds and John Richmond
(Empire Programme)
Three separate items will be broadcast in the third and last of these programmes arranged by S. E. Reynolds and John Richmond and broadcast to Empire as well as to British listeners.
Railway Rolling-Stock
A visit will be paid to the London, Midland, and Scottish Railway's research station at Derby, and listeners will hear something of no fewer than five of the many tests of materials for rolling-stock that are carried out there. They will hear the sound of a half-inch steel plate being tested for endurance properties as influnced by weld ; the sound of a ' mechanical seat' being tested for its wearing properties ; the sound of a pre-arranged accident taking place on a toy railway to test the effect of couplings on an overturned carriage. (Will it pull over the carriage it is coupled to ?) ; and next the sound of the ' rail and wheel ', a machine that reproduces the actual effect of the friction of the wheel on the rail and vice versa. Listeners will hear the wheels taking a curve at high speed and the speed called out. Finally, there will be a short talk on the ' weatherometer ' which tests the endurance of paint under the influence of artificial rain, sunlight, frost, and an acid-saturated atmosphere.
Aeroplane Engine Testing
Next, a visit will be made to an aeroplane factory in the West of England to hear something of the work that goes on there. It will not be possible to broadcast the full sound of the engine, for the noise is devastating, and the microphone will probably have to be placed a hundred yards away. It is hoped that listeners will hear the final test-that of the 'plane fitted with the engine taking off to be tested in flight.
Miscellaneous Testing
Finally, it is hoped that Dr. Fox, Government Chemist in charge of the Government Laboratory which tests more than half a million samples of all kinds of substances every year, will say something about the history of testing.

: The BBC Concerts of Contemporary Music — (Twelfth Season) SZYMANOWSKI MEMORIAL CONCERT

Antonio Brosa (violin)
The BBC Orchestra
(Section D)
Leader, Paul Beard
Conductor, Sir Adrian Boult
Concert Overture in E, Op. 12 Violin Concerto No. 2, Op. 61
Movements from the Ballet, Hamasie, Op. 55
Karol Szymanowski, who died early this year at the age of fifty-three, was one of the leading figures in contemporary music and was -certainly the greatest Polish composer since Chopin. Szymanowski received his musical education in Warsaw and began his career as a composer by following in Chopin's footsteps.
He has, however, aptly been compared with our own Arnold Bax , born in the same year. Both have the same romantic, lyrical kind of temperament ; both are fond of great profusion of detail ; and both are moderate modernists as regards harmony. Like Bax, too, Szymanowski is equally at home in all forma from the symphony and the large-scale choral work to the song or short piano piece. But he has also invaded a field left untouched by Bax who has written no operas, whereas Szymanowski has written two.
The three works to be heard this evening, particularly the Violin Concerto, represent the composer's orchestral style at its best.

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.
