A Discussion in Cockpit Form
Eight anonymous voices will express different views on spending and saving. A schoolboy, for instance, has peculiar worries. Even an accountant finds the problem difficult. One of the speakers has saved hard all his life. Another (a mother) believes in spending. A young engineer counts every penny. A professional woman is determined to have a good time. A father believes he should sacrifice most things to assure his son's future, and an employer, at the age of fifty, who lost his fortune, will tell listeners what he thinks about it all.
Mildred Dilling (harp): Arabesque No 1 (Debussy)
Marcel Moyse (flute): Le Rossignol en amour (The Amorous Nightingale) (Couperin-Fleury)
Edith Penville (flute): Air and Hornpipe (Purcell, arr. Revell)
Leon Goossens (oboe): Piece (Faure); Le Cygne (The Swan) (Saint-Saens)
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.
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.
