' High Teas and Suppers '
Elizabeth Hughes Hallett
In Scotland, where midday dinner is fairly general, high teas and suppers call for a good deal of attention from the housewife, and to them Elizabeth Hughes Hallett has thought fit to devote a whole talk in this series on Scottish cookery. Mrs. Hallett was formerly a teacher at the College of Domestic Science, Atholl Crescent, Edinburgh, and is known as the author of a guide to hostesses. She recently gave listeners some wrinkles on how to prepare for the Christmas season.

This evening listeners will hear the first of a series of stories by a great Scottish writer-R. B. Cunninghame Graham. He was a great personality and his death in March, 1936, was a loss not only to literature but to the world in general where great personalities are all too few.
All the stories in this series are taken from the collection ' Rodeo ', made by A. F. Tschiffely , the author's friend and biographer. The story to be read this evening is a masterpiece of fidelity and atmosphere. It describes the lonely Christmas spent by an old German couple who have migrated to the New World.
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

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.
