: HEINRICH SUTERMETSTER

Die jodelnden Schildwachen
(Fantastic March for orchestra) played by the City of Berne Orchestra
Conducted by Christoph Leitz
(Recording made available by courtesy of Schweizerische Rundspruch Gesellschaft)
Heinrich Sutermeister, who was born near Zurich in 1910, studied at Basle Conservatoire and later in Munich under Pfitzner. His Fantastic March for orchestra, ' The Yodelling Sentries,' takes its inspiration from a ballad of the same name by the Swiss writer Carl Spitteler, who lived from 1845 to 1924. It tells how a certain army major posted three sentries outside a powder magazine. Later he heard a distant sound of yodelling and realising it was the sentries he rode off and demanded an explanation; they said they were yodelling for joy at serving their country. The major reprimanded them but was later heard to express his admiration for an army in which soldiers could rejoice in doing their duty. Deryck Cooke

: SOME CONTEMPORARY MOVEMENTS IN THEOLOGY

The Liberal Tradition by Charles Raven ,
Emeritus Professor of Divinity in the University of Cambridge
Noserious theologian doubts the immense comribution liberalism made to theology in the nineteenth century. It was the liberal tradition thac enabled religion to meet the challenge of science without evading the issue. But there are many who believe that this tradition belongs to the past and is now dying. Canon Raven, who has all his life beeu a liberal theologian in the English rather than in the Continental sense of that term, speaks about the permanent contribution of the liberal tradition to theology He believes that the liberals of twenty-five years ago asked questions no Christian can properly evade. He gives some account cf liberalism today and indicates the direction in which its influence is likely to grow.

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.
