: ' A VISIT TO CHINA'

Christopher Isherwood
Christopher Isherwood , who has been hailed by many critics as the most brilliant of our younger novelists, recently paid a visit to
China with W. H. Auden , poet and dramatist. They returned a month or two ago, and in his broadcast this morning Christopher Isherwood will describe many of the things he saw in China, how he went to the battle-front at Hankow, to the Yellow
River and South Eastern fronts, and how he met among other notabilities
General and Madame Chiang Kai -Shek. The talk will be non-political in character, and will aim at presenting a picture of China as seen through the eyes of a writer in search of material for a new book.

(Section D)
Led by Laurance Turner
Conducted by Clarence Raybould and Eric Coates
(First nerformance, conducted by the composer)
The ballet, The Enchanted Garden, is one of Eric Coates 's most ambitious works. The chief theme of the story. is the conflict of the Spirits of Light and Darkness. After the opening orchestral introduction the curtain goes up to show the Prince setting out on a journey, bidding farewell to rhe Princess and leaving her in the care of the animals and birds of the garden, who to cheer her each bring an offering of flowers and fruit, which they lay at her feet.
During the ballet the influence of the Evil Spirit of the garden breaks in from time to time and after gaining in strength he and his brood enter to a tarantelle. The animals surround the Princess to protect her, and the Evil Spirits in their turn, surround them to try to capture the Princess. The dance becomes faster and faster with the Evil Ones getting closer and closer to the Priacess, and just as she is within their grasp the Prince returns holding a flaming sword in his hand with which he disperses the Evil Spirits, after which all is rejoicing and the garden once more settles down to its peaceful aspect.

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.
