: Dr. G. G. COULTON, ' England in the Middle Ages-V, Trade and Travel'

Any survey of medieval life must come to the consideration, sooner of later, of the Guild System. Dr. Coulton's review of medieval trade necessarily brings guilds into his survey, since guilds were the trade unions of those days. Dr. Coulton's view of guilds is that they were partly a prehistoric natural growth and partly produced by inter-action of the Lordship from above and the Trade Union from beneath. From trade to travel is not a far .cry, and the second part of Dr. Coulton's talks will consider the difficulties of mediaeval travel, the adventurous Normans, the impulse to travel and commerce given by the Crusades, and some of the early missionary priors and merchant adventurers.

: ORGAN MUSIC

Played by JOSEPH BONNET
Relayed from the Bishopsgate Institute
ONLY two of tha composers represented in M. Bonnet's programme are at all woU known to us aa organ composers -Handel and M. Bonnet himself.
Couperin, to most of us, suggests the harpsichord, but Francois, like other members of hia great musical family, was himself an organist, gaining the appointment of 'Organisto du Roi' in open competition in 1693 when he waa twenty-five years of age. From then until his death, forty years later, he was always an organist, although his fame as a performer on the harpsichord, and composer for it, has wholly overshadowed his organ music.
The misfortune which prevented Schu. mann's becoming a great pianoforte virtuoso made it equally impossible that he should excel as an organist, but he was keenly interested in the instrument, and, as has often been pointed out, a profound admirer of Bach's organ music.

: Plato's Description of the Death of Socrates

Road by RONALD WATKINS
THE crime of Socrates, that wise philosopher of ancient Greece, was too groat freedom of thought: he died because he would not be false to his beliefs. The story of his end, as Plato tells it, is as moving as anything in all literature. Mr. Watkins' reading tonight begins with the conclusion of Socrates' speech in court after his judges had condemned him to death, and then continues with the story as put into the mouth of an eye-witness of his last moments in prison.

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 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 find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

This is a historical record of both 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.
