: 'MEN TALKING'

' Living in the Country'
Reginald Arkell and A. G. Street
Reginald Arkell and A. G. Street are both West Countrymen and both know the countryside well. But their paths in life have diverged enough to give them different points of view. Mr. Street, though he has written books and lectured at universities, has been a farmer all his life. With the exception of a year or two in Manitoba, he has spent his whole life on the farm where he was born. Mr. Arkell's career has been that of a journalist and author of revues and musical comedies, but he has always preserved a warm affection for the countryside of his boyhood.

Part 2 from Queen's Hall, London
(Sole Lessees, Messrs. Chappell and Co. Ltd.)
Arthur Fear (bass-baritone)
The BBC Symphony Orchestra
(ninety players)
Leader, Paul Beard
Conducted by SIR HENRY J. WOOD
This gay, picturesque music, eloquent of sunlit Spain, was introduced to London audiences by the Russian Ballet in 1919. It is founded on a tale by Alarcon, wherein a pompous Corregidor seeks to seduce a miller's virtuous wife, only to meet with defeat at the hands of the lady and her watchful spouse.
In the first number the miller's neighbours have gathered about his house to dance, while the wine cup passes round. It is the eve of St. John's Festival. The second is danced by the miller himself, and the music presents an unmistakable picture of his sturdy figure and firmness of purpose. At the opening of the third dance, all is confusion. The dance itself is a brilliant Jota—one of the oldest and most popular traditional dance forms of Northern
Spain.
Tickets can be obtained from [address removed], and usual agents. Prices (including Entertainments Tax): 7s. 6d., 6s., 5s. (reserved), 3s. (unreserved), promenade (payment at doors only) 2s.

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.
