We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
From the Studio
Conducted by the Rev. C. F. Andrews, M.A.
Order of Hymn, 'Jesu, Lover' of my soul ' (A. and M. No. 193)
Bible Reading - St. John xi
Hymn, 'When I survey the wondrous Cross' (A. and M., No. 108):
Address by the Rev. C. F. Andrews, M.A.
Hymn, 'O Love that will not let me go' (A. and M., No. 699)

As an interpreter of the East and of the West to one another, few men have done more in our generation than Mr. C. F. Andrews, who will give the address in the broadcast service tonight. After a time as Vice-Principal of Westcott House, Cambridge, and as a member of the Pembroke College Mission, Walworth, he went out to India, in 1904, as one of the Brothers of the Cambridge Mission to Delhi. Today there is no Englishman more trusted in India by Indians, from the least peasant to the two celebrities, Tagore and Gandhi, who are his close personal friends. On several occasions he has been chosen by Indians as a spokesman for their country, and only last year the Viceroy, Lord Irwin paid a tribute to him for his great, though unofficial part, in helping towards the solution of the Indian difficulty in South Africa. Reconciliation is the keynote of his life and work. He has written several books, chief of which are the 'Renaissance in India,' and a book on social problems, entitled 'Christ and Labour.'


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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
