The Italian composer Gian Francesco Malipiero, who will celebrate his seventy-fifth birthday next year, has written nine symphonies to date. His fourth, subtitled In Memoriam, was composed shortly after the war for the Koussevitzky Music Foundation and dedicated to the memory of Natalie Koussevitzky. In a prefatory note the composer states that the work is not intended as an epitaph but rather to suggest a sense of personal loss.
Second of two talks by J. F. Holleman, Ph.D . Senior Welfare Officer. Bulawayo Municipality
Dr. Holleman speaks about the difficulties of adjustment of African women to living in towns, where circumstances demand that they fulfil primarily the two roles-those of wife and mother-in which in the tribal society of Southern Rhodesia their position is weakest. He considers that this is having a profound effect on the development of urban African societies as a whole.

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.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
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.
