: CLEAR THINKING

Prejudice
R. W. Jepson
Here is another series of talks planned mainly for Discussion Groups, and R. W. Jepson has designed it with the aim in view that we should all of us think clearly and individually and test for ourselves the value of what we hear and read.
In today's talk, the second in the series, he will speak of prejudice: what it is and how it works. Do we let our likes and dislikes prejudice our judgment?
Listeners who are interested in forming or joining Discussion Groups are invited to get into touch with the BBC Education Officer in their area.

: A CHORAL CONCERT

(Section D)
Leader, Paul Beard
Conducted by Malcolm Sargent
Patrick Hadley 's symphonic ballad in A minor, The Trees so High', ', was completed in 1931 and was first performed by the Cambridge University Musical Society with the composer as conductor. It was first heard in -London at the last of six concerts of British music organised by the BBC in 1934. The work is divided into four linked movements, of which the first three are purely orchestral, the fourth being a setting for baritone, chorus, and orchestra, of the ballad which ends:
All the trees ,they do grow high, The leaves they are so green,
The day is past and gone, my love, That you and I have seen.
It is cold winter's night, my love, When you and I must bide alone, So fare you well, my own true love,
For ever.
Many of the themes of this work are derived from fragments of the music of the old ballad ' The Trees so High ', and the moods underlying the music were directly inspired by the poetic ideas of the ballad.

The Fitzsimmons-Corbett Fight,
1897
J. H. Squire
J. H. Squire , who has had adventures all over the globe, is to describe one of the greatest fights in the annals of the ring-the triumph of Bob Fitzsimmons , the redoubtable Cornishman, who challenged Jim Corbett , the fight taking place at Carson City, Nevada, in 1897, and resulting in a sensational victory for the challenger. By winning, Fitzsimmons became the first middle-weight to gain the heavyweight title ; he was also destined to become the last British heavyweight champion of the world when he knocked out ' Gentleman Jim ' in the fourteenth round with his famous solar-plexus blow.

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.
