: TALK TO TEACHERS

Ⓓ 'The Use of the Piano'
Ann Driver
Many teachers whose children enjoy the Friday-morning broadcasts in * Music and Movement ' have written to Ann Driver asking her how they can find suitable piano music for their ' follow-up ' lessons. This afternoon she will try to show how the teacher of modest keyboard technique can adapt melodies for the piano in such a way that they call forth a rhythmic response from the children.

: SONGS BY MICHAEL HEAD

sung and accompanied by the composer
Green Rain
The King of China's Daughter Fallen Veils
Three Cotswold Songs :
1 Cotswold Love. 2 Mamble. 3 A Vagabond Song
Foxgloves
The Garden Seat The Blunder
Michael Head is a well-known figure of the microphone, having broadcast in the early Savoy Hill days in this country,' and also a great deal in Australia and New Zealand.
In his broadcast this afternoon he will be singing a number of songs which he wrote last year. Of these 'Mamble' is set to John Drink-water's poem of that name ; ' The King of China's Daughter' to the poem of that name by Edith Sitwell ; and ' The Blunder ' to Jan Struther 's delightful poem.
Michael Head 's favourite setting is the one he has made of D. G. Rossetti 's ' Fallen Veils' which will be heard this afternoon. Head is now devoting himself to more serious work than in the past, and his songs this afternoon are of a more unusual character than his usual nature' poems.

: Scrapbook for 1909

What happened thirty years ago?
Who was in the news?
What tunes did we whistle?
A varied hour of melodies and memories, including:
'We Want Eight and We Won't Wait'
Suffragettes Raid the Commons
Musical Comedy at its Zenith
Discovery of the North Pole
Bleriot Flies the Channel
The Lloyd George Budget
Mystery of the Waratah
'Yip-i-addy-i-ay'
These and other memories recalled by notable personalities of the year
Compere, Patric Curwen
The BBC Revue Chorus and Variety Orchestra
Conducted by Louis Levy
This is a revised version, with new features and songs, of the Scrapbook originally broadcast early in 1934. It was then the second in the Scrapbook series of programmes, which was launched in 1933, and with tonight's programme reaches its twenty-second edition.
Several interesting people who played their part in the history of thirty years ago are to speak in this revised programme.
Muriel Matters, now married to a West-End doctor, sailed as an ardent suffragette in an airship over the House of Commons, flaunting 'Votes for Women'.
Captain G.P. Phillips, who served as an apprentice in the Cutty Sark and retired last May as a commodore of the Clan Line after forty-six years' service, was in 1909 First Officer of the Clan Macintyre and the last man to exchange signals with the Waratah, whose disappearance off the east coast of Africa was one of the great mysteries of the sea.
Inspector J.H. Jarvis, who arrested Mrs. Pankhurst for smacking his face outside the House of Commons, will re-enact the scene; and Arthur Wimperis, well-known lyric writer, will recall The Arcadians, produced in the same vintage year as Our Miss Gibbs and The Dollar Princess.
'Scrapbook for 1909' will be broadcast again on Thursday (Regional, 6.0)

: 'THE PRESS TODAY'

' Gentlemen of the Press '
Tonight's broadcast in the series that is telling listeners the interesting story of the modern newspaper is rather different from those that have gone before. In previous broadcasts various well-known pressmen have come alone to the microphone to talk about their jobs.
Tonight will see a whole company of journalists assembled in the studio in a kind of Fleet Street edition of 'The World Goes By' with F. H. Grisewood acting as compere. The company will include a sub-editor, a leader writer, a compositor, a press photographer, and a circulation manager ; each of these will give a brief account of his daily, or nightly, job and discuss its trials, its humours, and its particular interest.

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.
