Reginald Coupland, Beit Professor of Colonial History in the University of Oxford
Professor Coupland met Gandhi on several occasions when he was visiting England for the Round Table Conference some years ago. In the course of his talk, which will naturally deal with Gandhi the politician, he will also describe the impression made upon him by Gandhi the man -as he sat, for example, surrounded by undergraduates at Oxford, answering their questions with deadly point yet unfailing good humour.
Professor Coupland's two following talks in the ' Questions of Empire ' series will be entitled ' Wilberforce and Slavery' and ' Sir Stamford
Raffles and Singapore '.

: 'THE FORTNIGHT'S FILMS'

Matthew Norgate
Matthew Norgate has been BBC film critic since last October, has written on films, radio, and the theatre for the last seven years, and will be remembered by many for his weekly column on London cabaret life while he was on the editorial staff of the Evening Standard, from 1934 to 1939.
He started life as a junior clerk at
£1 a week in a publisher's office and gave it up for the stage, making his debut with the Birmingham Repertory touring company. From 1924 to 1929 he was Secretary to the Stage Society, and during this time both The Man with the Load of Mischief and Journey's End were produced. He was also Secretary to the Phcenix Society, which produced seventeenth-century plays. He has filled every rôle in the theatre from call-boy to manager.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
