Travel Talk
The Swing of the Seasons Madagascar, Home of the Lemur
A. M. CHIRGWIN
' Madagascar is a land of contrasts. Within an hour's motor-ride of the capital with its well-lit shops, its large churches, and its French officials, you can be amongst primitive forest tribes living in tiny huts made, of woven bamboo and thatched with banana leaves. '
The above is an extract from a talk to be given by a man who has travelled through Madagascar on foot, by car, by canoe, and in a filanjana, or carrying chair. You will hear among other things how children, wading through the shallow rivers on their way to rice-fields or to school, scare the crocodiles away.

: "THE BARTERED BRIDE'

A comic opera by Frederic Smetana
Libretto by Karl Sabina English version by Rosa Newmarch

The scene of The Bartered Bride is laid in a Bohemian village on the afternoon and evening of the Patron Saint's Day. The action takes place during the first half of the nineteenth century. The outline of the story is as follows: Marenka, the pretty daughter of a peasant couple, is promised in marriage to Vashek (son of Micha, a wealthy farmer) whom she has never seen. She objects to the suit because she is already in love with Jenik, whose doubtful parentage and position make him a less desirable match.
The marriage-broker Ketsal intrigues on her parents' behalf to bring off the union between Marenka and the rich but stupid Vashek. As these two have never met, Marenka easily contrives to conceal her identity and put Vashek off the track.
But meanwhile the marriage-broker persuades Jenik to relinquish his chance of obtaining Marenka by accepting a bribe to give her up-on condition that her bridegroom shall be Micha's son. The usual complications follow, but in the last act Micha recognises in Jenik his long-lost elder son, and as the marriage-contract only calls for Marenka to marry ' the son of Micha ', she is now free to choose between Jenik and Vashek, which she does to everybody's satisfaction.
The Bartered Bride will be broadcast again next week on Tuesday evening, February 22, in the Regional programme.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
