: ' SCIENCE OF SHAVING'

By ' 'Scientist'
Pogonotomy (or, to give the process its ordinary everyday name, shaving) was practised by the ancient Egyptians and Babylonians. The profession of barber was recognised by the Greeks as long ago as 400 B.C. and the Romans frequently shaved. Yet it was not until 1873 that the first safety guard was fitted to a razor. And it was only in 1931 that the subject of pogonotomy (or common shaving) began to be studied scientifically.
The report of seven years' scientific investigation of shaving at the Mellon Institute, Pittsburgh, U.S.A., has just been published and this afternoon listeners will hear something about the results.

8.20 Dance Rhapsody, No. 1 Delius
In his recollections Rachmaninoff tells us that his Third Piano Concerto ' was written (in 1909) especially for America, and I was to play it for the first time in New York under the direction of Walter Damrosch. As during the previous summer I had not found much time for practising and was not familiar with some passages, I took a dumb piano on the boat with me and practised during the journey. I believe it is the only time I have resorted to this mechanical toy, which, however, at the time, proved very useful.'
This Concerto, containing some of Rachmaninoff's finest music and written with superb mastery for the soloist, was extremly well received, and a second performance immediately followed under that famous conductor and composer, Gustav Mahler.

William Walton 's 'Façade' was written in 1923 when the composer was twenty-one years of age. It was originally conceived as a series of poems by Edith Sitwell to be recited through a megaphone with musical accompaniment, for flute, clarinet, saxophone, cello, trumpet, and percussion. These accompaniments are mostly in the form of very clever and witty parodies of popular dance tunes, ranging from the polka to the foxtrot.
In 1926 Walton revised this work and also arranged an orchestral Suite for concert use, consisting of some of the most popular numbers. Its great success has now encouraged him to bring out a second Suite, which will be heard for the first time this evening.

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.
