Talk by Terence Prittie
Manchester Guardian correspondent in Germany
(The recorded broadcast of July 22)

Talk By: Manchester Guardian


The Deller Consort:
April Cantelo (soprano)
Eileen McLoughlin (soprano) Alfred Deller (counter-tenor)
Alexander Young (tenor)
Eric Barnes (tenor)
Norman Platt (baritone)
The London Consort of Viols:
Harry Danks (treble viol)
Stanley Wootton (treble viol) Desmond Dupre (tenor viol)
Jacqueline Townshend (tenor viol)
Henry Revell (bass viol)
Several Elizabethan composers wrote madrigals for voices and viols based on the shouts and cries of town and country life. Gibbons' composition is based on an In Nomine given out by the treble viol dgainst which the voices (singly, in twos and threes, or all together) proclaim the rival merits of lily-white mussels, hot apple-pies, ripe walnuts, silk garters, and many other wares. The example by Thomas Ward is a part-song in which is heard the cry of the ' knocker-up,' hunters calling their dogs, someone whistling a folk-tune, and the call of Harvest home.'

Talk by Ronald L. Meek
Lecturer in Political Economy at Glasgow University
Is the labour theory of value founded on some sort of ethical or political premise? How does Marx's theory of value differ from the theories of Adam Smith and David Ricardo ? Dr. Meek's reflections on these questions are prompted by the recent appearance of three books: a reprint of Bohm-Bowerk's ' Karl Marx and the Close of his System ' and Hilferding's reply, an English translation of selections from Marx's ‘Theories of Surplus Value,’ and an edition of ' The Works and Correspondence of David Ricardo. '

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.
