: ' FOUR WALLS IN AFRICA'

Merlin Minshall
Merlin Minshall has done a great deal of unconventional travelling, particularly in Africa, from which he brought back a notable series of photographs, many of which have recently been reproduced in The Listener. Mr. Minshall is an architect by profession. This afternoon he is going to talk about the huts and shanties in which the African native lives-how they are made and how they appear to a Western eye accustomed to more elaborate construction.
Mr. Minshall's amusing comments on native architecture are full of shrewd, but not over-technical, observation.

: A Sonata Recital

Bessie Rawlins (violin)
Reginald Paul (pianoforte)
One of the greatest of Beethoven's violin sonatas is the Sonata in C minor, Op. 30, No. 2. It is sometimes known as the ' Eroica '. Certainly the music, particularly in the first movement, possesses much of the heroic spirit. It is beautifully written for both instruments and the balance between them is well calculated.

Conducted by SIR HENRY J. WOOD
' La Mer consisting of three symphonic sketches (' esquisses symphoniques') was begun in 1903 and completed in 1905, when Debussy was at the height of his musical and imaginative powers. It is scored for a large orchestra.
In the opening of No. 1, 'From
Dawn to Noon at Sea ', there is a suggestion of the slow and rhythmic surge of the sea and the sombre greyness and half lights of early dawn.
No. 2, ' Waves , is entirely constructed ' out of enchanting little wisps of melody and fluttering rhythmic figures, which vividly suggest the froth and spray of curling waves and the dazzling flashes of sunlight on the undulating sea.
No. 3, ' Dialogue of the Wind and the Sea is a perfect musical representation of its title complete with the whine of the wind and the muffled roar of the waves.
Hindemith's Neues vom Tage (News of the Day) appeared in 1929. The story is the gayest and most inconsequent nonsense, poking fun, in a real spirit of farce, at the restless conditions of modern life. The orchestra required is an unusual one ; in addition to the usual wood winds, there are an E flat clarinet and an alto saxophone. Two pianos are needed also, one of them for two players, and besides a big array of percussion instruments (including three electric bells), there are parts for mandoline and banjo.
Tickets can be obtained from the British Broadcasting Corporation, Broadcasting House, Portland Place, W.1., Messrs. Chappell's Box Office, Queen's Hall, Langham Place, W.1, and the usual Agents. Prices: 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.
