Mr. Cecil Lewis: Across the Alps

The Alps have always been a formidable obstacle to travellers making for Italy by land. Now the railways have tamed them, but there are still adventurous wayfarers who prefer to cross by road, in the tracks of the Gauls and Goths and Carthaginians and any number of notable personages from Brennus and Belinus to Mr. Belloc on his way to Rome. Mr. Cecil Lewis recently did the journey in a light car, and he will describe its more exciting incidents in his talk today.

Cecil Lewis: Old Rothenburg

In Rothenburg, that thousand-year-old city of Bavaria, as in the palace of the Sleeping Princess, time has stood still. The city stands with its walls and castles, its moats and bastions, but it seems to have been forgotten since the fifteenth century; and now wise people have embalmed it as a national treasure. Mr. Cecil Lewis will try to convey the atmosphere of this city of cobbled streets and deep gables - of the dusty palace of bygone princes and the log fires of hospitable inns.

Mr. Cecil Lewis talking on Pictures.

I— ' The Man with the Big Cigar '
Mr. Cecil Lewis starts off by explaining the object of his six talks on film making. This week he deals with the distribution end of the film industry : the organisation of film combines; how pictures are marketed; how what the public wants influences what the public gets.

'Through the Looking Glass'

With the exception of Shakespeare and Dickens, no writer has enriched everyday English thought and everyday English speech with a wider range of Jiving, universally known characters than Lewis Carroll. Alice herself, the Queen of Hearts, the Mad Hatter, the Dormouse, the Cheshire Cat, the White Knight-all these are as familiar to us as Falstaff and Pickwick themselves.
There may be greater lyric poems than ' The Walrus and the Carpenter ' in the English language, but, as Tweedledum himself pointed out, it is one of the longest, and it is certainly one of the most often quoted. It will be included in this radio version of ' Through the Looking-Glass ', along with ' Father William ' and ' Jabberwocky '. And, of course, you will meet again all the famous characters in this nursery classic. This is the second revival of Cecil Lewis 's faithful adaptation.
This play was broadcast in the Regional programme last night

'The Magnificent Charlatan'

CHRISTOPHER COLUMBUS was born at Genoa during the middle of the fifteenth century and died in 1506. He is said to have gone to sea when fourteen years of age, but five years later he was engaged in the family business of weaving. During the next fourteen years he gradually conceived the idea of an extended voyage of exploration to Asia, and after considerable opposition finally secured the backing of Queen Isabella of Castile.
Columbus set forth on his first voyage on August 3, 1492, returning after six months, having discovered Cuba and several of the islands of the West Indies. On September 24 he embarked on his second voyage to the West Indies; on May 30, 1498, began his third voyage, during which he landed in South America ; and on May 9, 1502, he set out on his last great voyage to ' the New World '.
Cecil Lewis 's The Magnificent Charlatan is the ' history of the fortunate Christopher Columbus who, in 1492, set sail for Asia and discovered America'. Says the First Speaker: ' Destiny and Chance, Fate and Providence: these invoke and murder all Adventurers. This is our theme '.
This programme will be repeated by all Regionals except West on Thursday night

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.
