bv
H. G. WELLS
This radio adaptation of the first story of H. G. Wells ever to be broadcast was first produced on the air on January 9, 1933, and is an adaptation that the author had seen and approved. The story itself is one of the most famous of that long series of great short stories that Mr. Wells wrote in the ' nineties and in the first decade of this century, a period when almost every issue of the monthly magazines contained a new story by Wells, Kipling, Jacobs, Barry Pain or Conan Doyle , the bulk of which have now passed permanently into the collections. It is typical of his unique gift of combining an idea in itself fantastically original with a treatment so realistic and sympathetic as to carry entire conviction. The proverb says that ' In the country of the blind, the one-eyed man is king '. Tonight's story has a very different moral.
' The Country of the Blind' will be repeated in the Rcgional programme on Thursday night

: ' Freedom '-13

The Rt. Rev. the Lord Bishop of DURHAM
The Right Rev. Herbert Hensley Henson has been Bishop of Durham for fifteen years, but his connection with the cathedral and the city goes back further than that, for he was Dean of Durham for six years before he was Bishop of Hereford. He has a fine historic sense, as you would expect from the late Honorary Professor of Modern History in Durham University. When he was Rector of St. Margaret's, Westminster, his sermons had a reputation among some of the most thoughtful people in London. Among his other gifts, he writes the most perfect English without any effort whatever. That he should have been selected to wind up this notable series is altogether happy. Whereas in the old days he had a strong belief in a State Church, he has now come to believe that only through Disestablishment can the Church win its spiritual freedom.

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.
