Why is it that the United Nations has never managed to focus as much popular attention or get the same popular support in Europe as the old Geneva League? Why does no one talk about ' the New York spirit '? Max Bcloff, Fellow of Nuffield College, Oxford, considers such questions in the context of Dr. A. Loveday's recently published Reflections on International Administration.
by E. J. King Bull from ' The Dream of the Red Chamber ' by Tsaoh Hsueh-Chin and Kao Ngoh as translated from the Chinese by Chi-Chen Wang
Music composed and conducted by Peter Crossley-Holland
Production by E. J. King Bull
Characters in order of speaking:
with Felicity Askew , Diana Campbell and members of the BBC Drama Repertory Company
The Dream of the Red Chamber, the first Chinese novel, provides a vivid picture of aristocratic life during the flowering period of the eighteenth century, in the foreground of which unfolds the love story of Pao-Yu and Black Jade.
In writing the music the composer has made use of the Chinese five-note scale, using unusual combinations of woodwind and percussion to suggest features characteristic of oriental music.

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.
