: ' SICKNESS IN THE HOUSE'

' Flowers in the Sick-Room'
Marguerite James , F.R.H.S.
When we hear that anyone is ill our first thought is to send them flowers-and flowers, that essential of the sick-room, is to be the subject of today's talk by the author of 'The Family Garden'. Marguerite James is a Fellow of the Royal Horticultural Society ; she lives in the country and for her garden. Next week Mrs. Marian Cutler , who has already given two talks in this series, will give the first of three talks on the care of old people.

: * EFFICIENCY AND LIBERTY'

' Russia'
Mrs Sidney Webb
How far can a nation combine the maximum of national efficiency with the maximum of individual liberty ? This is probably the central problem in European politics today, and every Friday evening in this important series authoritative speakers are discussing it. So far, the systems of government at work in Italy and France have been surveyed. Tonight, Mrs. Sidney Webb is going to speak on Russia. In recent years, as most people know, Mrs. Sidney Webb and her husband, Lord Passfield, have made a close study of the Russian experiment. After Mrs. Webb has spoken Mr. Wilson Harris will question her on what she has said.

: THE BBC CONCERTS OF CONTEMPORARY MUSIC-5

(Twelfth Season)
To be given before an audience in the Concert Hall, Broadcasting House
May Blyth (soprano) Bernard Shore (viola)
The BBC Orchestra
(Section D)
Leader, Marie Wilson
Conducted by Constant Lambert
Darnton's ' Swansong ' was written in 1935 and is the composer's most ambitious and important work. It was written specially for May Blyth after he had heard her sing Maria in the BBC's concert performance of Alban Berg 's Wozzeck. Listeners will note many distinctive features about the scoring ; for instance, the third song is scored for two unaccompanied bassoons almost throughout.
The poems by Robert Nichols were first published in 1920 in a volume, entitled ' Aurelia and Other Poems', which was dedicated to Philip Heseltine. 1. The poet proclaims his swansong. No sound disturbs the winter's wood but ' Death's hushed footstep drawing near '. 2. ' 0 Nightingale, my heart, How sad thou art!' No more will it sing. 3. ' It is still under the pines ... The heart beats heavily, sad, and slow '. 4. Memory, Solitude and Sorrow are invoked in turn. 5. The poet's soul is bidden to put by the sun, the wine, the rose, ' the courteous tire ' and the lute and to take leave of friends ...

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.
