'The Story of Roast Pig'
A play by JEAN SUTCLIFFE
This afternoon's play is based on an idea taken from Charles Lamb 's famous essay, ' Dissertation on the Origin of Roast Pig '. How much of the story is fact and how much fable will probably never be known, though Lamb himself claimed that it was discovered in an ancient Chinese manuscript. At all events, it is the naive and whimsical story of how, in long-ago China, Bo-Bo, the loutish son of Ho-ti, was left at home to look after a sow which had just farrowed. Bo-bo, fond of fire, plays with it once too often on this occasion, and the house goes up in flames. Anxiously endeavouring to haul the burnt and blackened sow from the inferno, he repeatedly licks his fingers to cool them ; the taste is delicious, and the result one in which, for many weeks to come, the whole countryside burns down its houses whenever it wants to taste roast pig.

: HAROLD SANDLER AND HIS VIENNESE OCTET

Harold Sandier , brother of Albert Sandier , the famous violinist, is by now well known to listeners, having been broadcasting for approximately eighteen months with his Viennese Octet. He is also a popular figure in many of the leading West-End hotels and restaurants, of which his characteristic gypsy and Continental music are a feature. He decided to form the Viennese Octet after spending some time on the Continent, when he was struck by the possibilities of bringing to England many of those gay and carefree tunes typical of Central Europe.
Like his brother, Harold Sandier plays the violin. His Octet consists of two violins, one viola, cello, bass, two clarinets, trumpet, and piano. The use of two clarinets enables him to obtain a vivid contrast in solos, and, together with the trumpet, a fullness which is very effective.

: 'ADVANCE IN THE AIR'

' How the Aeroplane is Changing the World'
Nigel Norman
Tonight's talk will be of a general character, surveying the various social and economic changes which have been wrought by the aeroplane, and speculating as to future probabilities. Modern commercial advantages might be illustrated by the speed with which it is possible to write to and get a reply from Australia, while social change may be shown in predicted plans whereby week-ends in North Africa for Englishmen may shortly be a possibility.
Nigel Norman , himself an enthusiastic pilot, takes a keen interest in the effect of aviation on society. He was responsible for the construction of Heston Airport, which has been much praised as an example of forward-looking aerodrome design. The speaker is also chairman of the Aviation Committee of the London Chamber of Commerce.

: THE BBC ORCHESTRA

(Section E)
Led by Manus O'Donnell
Conducted by Herbert Menges
In 1909 Vaughan Williams composed an overture and incidental music for a production of Aristophanes's comedy The Wasps. The overture is based on some of the tunes of the choruses in the play. The music, particularly in the opening, graphically suggeMs the angry buzzing of the wasps. The principal subject of the overture, heard on the solo clarinet and bassoon, is imbued with the spirit of comedy.

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.
