' Sadhu ' means ' holy man ', and Singh, a common name among the Sikhs (disciples), means a lion. The Sadhu's name well interprets his personality. He needed all his courage. He possessed nothing but his saffron robe and his Bible. He wandered all over India, and very much further, trusting in God for food and shelter, and suffering dreadful conditions of climate and unheard of indignities from his fellow men.
His early days and his baptism at the age of sixteen after his successful discovery of peace or ' Shanti' on his conversion-the most thrilling moment of his life--are briefly dealt with in this broadcast. It is almost impossible to do full justice to this lion-hearted warrior who set out on his last visit to Tibet in 1929, at the age of forty, and was never seen again.

: Sunday Orchestral Concert

Seventh Season - I
The song-cycle 'Kindertotenlieder', in this Sunday Orchestral Concert, is one of Mahler's finest works. It was composed during the period 1901-2 when Mahler was at the height of his powers. Each one of these five settings of Ruckert are imbued with deep tragedy. The vocal lines are of great beauty and are deeply expressive of the emotional significance of the words. Nowhere in Mahler's music does he show greater genius for delicate and significant handling of the orchestral palette than in these five songs.








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.
