' Tackling the Suburbs '
A discussion between G. M. BOUMPHREY and JOHN CADBURY
A feature of this discussion is that each of the chief speakers will have the opportunity of calling upon an experienced suburban resident (both of them doing social work) to speak in support of his case. Mr. John Cadbury is one of the younger members of the Bournville firm and first broadcast last year on Midland Youth Hostels. He is treasurer of the Birmingham Youth
Hostel Regional group and a member of the National Council of the Association

: A Violin Recital by EDA KERSEY

The process of Stravinsky's musical development has been rather un! common since he began as a Romanticist, encouraged no doubt by the influence of Rimsky-Korsakov, with whom he studied, with a leaning towards realism which gradually dominated his entire outlook, and then finally within the last few years Stravinsky has repudiated all his old aesthetic ideals and become what is known as a neo-classicist, that is to say, he is now solely interested in music as music and not as an illustration of literary ideas or as an expression of emotion. Stravinsky does not believe in being hampered with rules other than those he cares to lay down for himself: dissonance and consonance are merely relative terms to him and, therefore, he will use the most ' advanced ' discord or the most obvious concord, according to the effect he feels to be necessary.
Stravinsky's neo-classical tendency also shows itself in his fondness forr resuscitating old music. We have, fo instance, the Suite on Themes of Giambattista Pergolesi which is particularly interesting because of the way in which Stravinsky treats the tunes of this celebrated and prolific eithtcenthcentury Italian composer.

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.
