: CHILDREN AT SCHOOL

' Two to Seven '
W. E. Williams
This evening's broadcast, concentrating as it does on the children aged from two to seven, touches upon an aspect of education to which an ever-growing importance is attached.
It has been said : ' Give me a child for the first seven years, and you may do what you like with him afterwards.' This axiom is becoming an integral part of modern education, though there is still considerable room for expansion in the realm of nursery schools.
An interested mother will be in the studio to question W. E. Williams on nursery schools and infant departments, and on the. type of work that they are doing.

: THE BBC ORCHESTRA

(Section D)
Led by Marie Wilson
Conducted by Clarence Raybould
Havergal Brian 's ' Doctor Merryheart' overture was composed in 1911-12 and first performed at Birmingham in January, 1913, under Julius Harrison ; later in the same year Wood performed it in London at a Promenade Concert.
In a prefatory note to the score, the composer describes Doctor Merryheart as ' a genial astronomer who advanced the strange theory that the universe is part of a vast diatonic scale, with its tonic in the centre of the Milky Way. It was difficult to believe that he wished to be taken seriously, for his deep reflections on the mystery of the universe were expressed to the accompaniment of a continuous series of smiles '.
At the very beginning is heard
Merryheart's whimsical whistle which provides the material for a series of mood pictures and dreams, amorous, heroic, and playful in turn.

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.
