From the Marble Arch Pavilion

: Mr. T. R. SCOTT: Rocks and Fossils: Fossils-I'

LAST term Mr. Scott gave a short series of talks on the geological structure of England, that served to introduce many listeners to the interesting study of the ' story of the stones.' In the two talks, of which this afternoon's is the first, he will give them some instruction in the practical side of the subject, which will be very useful to those who are setting out with hammers and specimen-boxes to test their conclusions for themselves.

: Mr. HOLT MARVELL: Holidays Abroad : France-I, Southern France '

rpHREE talks on Italy and two on Spain
A have given listeners a very good idea of the advantages of spending a holiday in Granada or Seville, San Remo or Perugia, Venice or Capri. Now, France is to be similarly dealt with, and, as in Csesar's time (any schoolboy can tell you), all Gaul was divided into three parts, so all France will be divided into three talks. This afternoon Mr. Holt Marvell , the novelist, will describe that sunbathed Paradise where the Mediterranean laps the rocks of the Cote d'Azur, a region in which he has lived for many year?. He will deal not so much with such crowded resorts as Monte Carlo and Cannes as with the lovely little villages that lie off the petrol-laden track.

: Mr. ALEX J. PEARSE: Wit and Humour in Books-II, Charles Lamb '

No English man of letters has been better loved than Lamb; his contemporaries and their posterity vie with each other in a tender, protecting fondness for the humorist whose own life was so full of tragedy, the stammerer who was the wittiest talker of his age. And the peculiar quality of his humour remains unique to this day. In this talk Mr. Pearse will try to analyze the charm of his personality and the appeal of his wit.

To-night he starts his consideration of the railways, which have for so long been supreme amongst modern forms of transport, and which stand in an intimate, but peculiar relation to the State. As a former official on the headquarters staff of one of the big railway combines, he has an unrivalled knowledge of how they work.

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, and programmes to purchase from BBC Store and other providers.

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.
