' King, Barons, and People '
HUGH CHESTERMAN
Today's broadcast deals with the time of King Stephen, when anarchy reigned around the barons and their castles. The story of the sufferings of the people during this lawlessness and of the barons' defiance of King
Stephen is told in two dramatic interludes. A third interlude contrasts the justice of those days with that of today.

Symphony No. 4, in B flat Beethoven
1 Adagio-Allegro vivace. 2 Adagio. 3 Minuetto : Allegro vivace—Trio : (Un poco meno mosso). 4 Finale: Allegro ma non troppo
' The Fourth Symphony in B flat said Schumann, ' stands like a slender Greek maiden between two N giants.' Indeed, the music is full of grace and charm, and the slow movement is one of Beethoven's most beautiful inspirations, of which Berlioz said : ' The being who wrote such a marvel of inspiration as this movement was not a man ... Such must be the song of the Archangel Michael as he contemplates the world's uprising to the threshold of the empyrean '.
In the earlier portion of Bax's ' The
Garden of Fand ' the composer seeks to create the atmosphere of an enchanted Atlantic completely calm beneath the spell of the Other World. Upon its surface floats a small ship adventuring from the shores of Eirinn beneath a sky of pearl and amethyst, until on the crest of an immense, slowly surging wave it is tossed on to the shore of Fand's miraculous island.
Here is inhuman revelry unceasing between the ends of time, and the voyagers are caught away, unresisting, into the maze of the dance. A pause comes, and Fand sings her song of immortal love enchanting the hearts of her hearers for ever. The dancing and feasting begin again, and, finally, the sea rising suddenly overwhelms the whole island, the immortals riding in rapture on the green and golden waves, and laughing carelessly amidst the foam at the fate of the over-rash mortals lost in the depths. Twilight falls, the sea subsides, and Fand's garden fades out of sight.

: FARMING TODAY

F. Rayns
F. Rayns , who will conduct the ' Farming Today ' series of talks this autumn, is a director of the Norfolk Agricultural Station and well known to East Anglian farmers both for the valuable fanning experiments he has conducted and for his practical achievements at the Sprowston farm, where trials dealing with problems of particular interest in Norfolk farming are carried out. The speaker is a pioneer of sugar-beet farming and an unremitting champion of the claims of barley for consideration in British farming. Few educationists have more inspired the confidence of practical men, and a Norfolk reputation in particular is perhaps the best qualification for a speaker on farming in general.

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.
