Travel Talk
' In the Bird Islands of Peru'
HILDA G. ERVINE
Last week Hilda Ervine talked to you about the mountains of Peru; today she is to tell you about the coast and the islands and the sea, about mists and fog and almost an entire absence of rain and a multitude of birds. She will explain how the same thing-an ice-cold rurrent -keeps away the rain and brings the mist and the fog and the birds. You will see if you turn to your pamphlet how abundant they are, and you will hear all about guano, which fertilises the great farms of Peru. She will show you how one thing depends on another thing, and that thing on something else ad infinitum. Listen towards the end of her talk to her version of the nursery rhyme 'This is the house that Jack built', as applicable to the bird islands of Peru. ' Here is the ocean vast and deep-'. '. It is worth hearing.

: THE BBC ORCHESTRA

(Section B)
Leader, Paul Beard
Conducted by Clarence Raybould
Ania Dorfmann (pianoforte)
Bronwen is the third of the trilogy composed by Josef Holbrooke on the text of T. E. Ellis (the pen name of Lord Howard de Walden). The three dramas (the first two are The Children of Don and Dylan) together form an epic of Wagnerian dimensions entitled The Cauldron of Anicyn, founded on Welsh mythology. The first of the trilogy was produced in London in 1912, and performed later in Vienna and Salzburg (1923) ; Dylan was produced in London two years later at Drury Lane Theatre; and Brontcen was given its first performance by the Carl Rosa Company in 1929. The story of the trilogy is tragic and passionate, and the music is in keeping with the strong, darkly-painted moods of the text. The overture to Brontcen is often separately played in the concert room.
Bloch's Poems of the Sea
Originally written for the piano, and composed at Cleveland, U.S.A., in 1922, Bloch's 'Poems of the Sea' were later scored for full orchestra. The three pieces are prefaced by a quotation from Walt Whitman. the first contains a motif which occurs in Rimsky-Korsakov's Sadko, and is descriptive of the- ocean depths. In ' Chanty',the composer has expressed the nostalgic quality that characterises sailors' songs, and the atmosphere throughout is one of tranquil meditation. The third, ' At Sea', is more vigorous, and works up to a fine climax reflecting the spirit of Whitman's lines:-
In cabin'd ships at sea
The boundless blue on every side expanding
With whistling winds and music of the waves, the large imperious waves.....

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.
