: MUSIC AND THE ORDINARY LISTENER

Remark and Repartee in Music.
Sir Walford Davies
The series of talks ' Music and the Ordinary Listener', which was so successful last season, is now being continued from a fresh angle of approach. The present speakers have been invited to talk to listeners more as friends than as lecturers. They will each concentrate upon one of the varied pleasures of listening, which they themselves have found fascinating, and compare this experience with those of their audience.
Sir Walford Davies opened last week the series with six talks on ' Remark and Repartee in Music ' : the ability of every kind of melodist to ' make a musical remark ' and to clinch it with apt melodic repartee. Examples played at the piano during these talks will range from chants to symphonies, and from the ' Blue Danube ' to the ' Giant Fugue ' ; and listeners will be asked to cite relevant examples which they may desire to hear quoted in the course of the talks.

: ' MRS. GRUNDY COMES TO TEA'

by L. du Garde Peach
Scene 1 : The Back Door
Scene 2: The Park
Scene 3: The Drawing-Room
Produced by Lance Sieveking
A year or two ago that prolific and successful writer of plays, L. du Garde Peach, brought to life a real lady whose name was known to everybody — Mrs. Beeton, most famous recipe-maker of all time. Tonight he is to bring to life a character just as well known, even if she never existed in the flesh. Nine people out of ten, if asked, would probably say that this forbidding person Mrs. Grundy was imagined in the Victorian era. But as ' The Broadcasters ' pointed out last week, she originated in a play called Speed the Plough a century before. This new play about her, specially written for radio by Peach, is one of his most amusing comedies.

: WHAT MORE DO YOU WANT FROM THE SCIENTIST ?

Sir Henry Tizard , C.B., F.R.S.
Sir Henry Tizard will introduce this new series of science talks by asking the question ' What do you want that you can't get, however rich you may be ? '
Not many years ago the answers to the question might have included ' I want to fly ', or ' I want to speak at a distance ' ; and Sir Henry will show how ambitions like these have been met by the determination of a man, or a group of men, and by the inspiration science derives from it. There are few things of this kind, Sir Henry suggests, that could not be achieved if sufficient people were really determined to see them achieved.
The subsequent speakers in this series will deal with such problems as-Can life be prolonged ? Is there a limit to speed ? How can we get more efficient lighting ?

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.
