' School Life in Germany '
A. G. ELLIOTT-SMITH
Today's speaker, who is an English schoolmaster, spent three months last autumn teaching in a typical German school. While there he had ample opportunity to contrast the educational systems of the two countries in general, and school life in particular. This morning he is going to describe a typical day in the life of a German schoolboy. He will outline the aims that German education has in view, and show how the system as a whole is working.

At the present time of year the lovely moorlands that surround the parish of Thorwick are approaching their full summer splendour like those in other parts of the country. In this afternoon's broadcast you are going to hear some of the Thorwick folk and hear how they regard their moors, how they ' work ' them, and how they profit from them. You will also hear about peat, and the making of heather besoms, and about the making of the famous heather honey.

★ Daylight Rehearsal
The Assembly and Grand Finale from Rushmoor Arena .
There will be seven broadcasts this week from the Aldershot Tattoo. This afternoon (Regional, 2.40) and on Saturday (National, 9.45) listeners will hear a description of Changing the Guard. Today (Regional, 3.20) and on Saturday (National, 10.20) they will hear the Massed Bands. Today (National, 4.30) and on Saturday (National, 11.30) they will hear a commentary on the Grand Finale, with its inspiring theme, ' Steady and Strong ', combined with the picturesque legend of Drake's Drum, supposed to sound whenever England is in danger. The recorded voice speaking Newbolt's poem is that of John Snagge , who, with Michael Standing , will give the commentaries.
The seventh broadcast (on Saturday) will cover the exciting item, ' Co-operation ', showing three air troop carriers coming to the help of troops in action. It is hoped that S. J. de Lotbiniere will be in one of the aeroplanes to give his impressions.

Tattoo by John Snagge on page 8.

Joseph Jongen , the Belgian composer, was born at Liege in 1873. He studied at the Liege Conservatoire, where he was Professor of Harmony from 1901-1920, when he went to the Brussels Conservatoire as Professor of Fugue and Counterpoint. After five years he was appointed Principal there. His compositions show much poetic imagination.

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.
