: ' HUNGARIAN RHAPSODY'

' Gypsies, Castles, and Budapest'
Count Alfred A. Hessenstein
Though Count Hessenstein is technically a Hungarian and is of German descent, his family has for generations been practically English. His grandfather was a morganatic son of one of George Ill 's sons-in-law, the celebrated Elector of Hesse who supplied the Hessian mercenaries for the American War. Count Hessenstein, who has made a special study of Central European affairs and modern European history, contributes frequently to British newspapers. He gave a broadcast talk on ' Old Vienna ' on April 5.

: THE BBC ORCHESTRA

(Section C)
Led by Laurance Turner
Conducted by Joseph Lewis
Gerber's Rhapsody ' Balaton ', dedicated to the composer's wife, is the first of his compositions to be broadcast. The music is descriotive and relates the story of a Hungarian peasant. We hear him playing to his people and bidding them farewell. He wanders from his native plains with his violin to seek his fortune as a strolling player. For a while he is content with the countryside, but soon he is drawn into the turmoil of life in a great city. Bewildered by stress and strain and mentally maimed and disillusioned, he dreams of the serenity of his native land. The last section of the work portrays his love of home and the immediate urge to return to it.

Anona Winn recently went to Devon for a holiday before starting a hard three months on the halls. But her holiday was not altogether a rest cure. She woke up one night to find smoke and flames coming in at her window ; the room below hers in the hotel was on fire. From then on the night was arduous, though no harm was done in the end.

: DOMESTIC SERVICE

A Discussion
This evening mistress will meet maid at the microphone and exchange views. Taking part will be a young modern mistress, a servant of long standing, a young servant and a woman who has been both mistress and maid
(Scottish Programme)
Why are so many girls unwilling to enter domestic service? Are they fairly treated when they do ? When there is a fault, is it always on the side of the mistress ? Is the accommodation with which the maid is provided comfortable? Has she as much personal freedom as girls in other jobs ? Should there be a fundamental change in the relationship of mistress and maid ? These are some of the questions that will be thrashed out by tonight's speakers, each of whom views the problem of domestic service from a different angle.

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.

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.
