: THIRD WORLD CONCERT

from
The Dutch East Indies
Arranged by N.I.R.O.M.
(Nederlandsch-Indische Radio
Omroep Maatschappij)
The National Anthem of the Netherlands Adhan and Bedoeg (Summons to
Prayer)
The adhan, the summons to prayers, is daily repeated at the mosques. The large drums-bedoegs-are used where the voice of the priest might not be heard.
AMBONESE FLUTE ORCHESTRA
Soetjikanilah Kani Toehan (Cleanse us, 0 Lord)
The Ambonese cut flutes out of bamboo, and tune them to correspond with soprano, alto, tenor, and bass. The flute orchestra is composed of Ambonese soldiers.
KATJAPI (Zither) ORCHESTRA
Oedan Mas (Golden Rain)
Members of the katjapi orchestra play native instruments including a stringed sound-box (struck with the finger nails), a bamboo flute, and a Javanese violin.
GAMELAN (Javanese) ORCHESTRA
Ladrang Srikaton I (Songs of Katawang Laras Mojo ) Welcome)
The gamelan is the age-old Javanese orchestra that takes a very special place in native art in the Indies. Numerous instruments are employed, but the bronze gongs predominate and give the bewitching sounds for which the gamelan is famous.
ANGKLOENG (Pipe) ORCHESTRA
Angkloeng music
The angkloeng is an instrument cun- ningly devised with bamboo pipes that move to and fro in slots and are shaken to produce sound. The orchestra that will broadcast is composed of four angkloengs, four drums, two cymbals, and two wind instruments.
SUMATRAN ORCHESTRA
Mati Diboenoe (Murdered)
Five of the musical instruments used in Sumatra will be heard, the most important being the gamboe, a guitar of foreign origin, and the most picturesque, a large drum covered in goatskin and beaten on both sides, and a small drum covered with untanned goatskin and beaten on only one side.
KRONTJONG (Guitar) ORCHESTRA
Stamboel Satoe (Ode to the Moon) Patjar Merah (Market Song)
The krontjong, a small five-stringed guitar, was introduced into the Indies by the Portuguese and is much loved. It originally accompanied folk songs, but of late years the music has been influenced by jazz and Hawaiian melody. ' Stamboel Satoe ' is said to be the oldest krontjong melody.
TONG-TONG (Percussion)
This instrument is made out of a hollowed tree-trunk. It is used as a danger-signal and a time-signal. Every village has its tong-tong. Double beats resound in case of flood ; alternate single and double beats if someone runs amok ; alternate triple and double strokes in case of robbery ; a series of regular beats, from loud to soft, and then loud again in case of fire. The tong-tong is also used to summon believers to prayer.
The National Anthem of the Netherlands

: FOR THE CHILDREN

' Christian England '
8—'The Seven Bishops '
-By Alec Macdonald
The cast includes
Marcus Barron
Henry Hepworth
Ian Dawson
Ann Stephenson
Produced by Geoffrey Dearmer
The Rector and Michael are on a visit to Worcester Cathedral, where they find the famous gravestone in the cloister with the one word Miserrimus—most wretched. Michael establishes contact with the unhappy chooser of the epitaph-the minor canon, Thomas Morris , who was ejected for his refusal to take the oath of allegiance to William and Mary in 1690. From him he learns about the struggle of the Church of England against James II's efforts to restore Roman Catholicism, culminating in the trial of the Seven Bishops and the ' English Revolution ' which brought William III and Mary to the throne.

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.
