9—' More Errors and Some
Dishonest Tricks'
R. W. Jepson
Since October 5, R. W. Jepson , Headmaster of Mercers School, Holborn, since 1929, and author of many publications, including How to Think Clearly ', published this year, has been broadcasting a weekly talk in this series. He has spoken about habits of thought, prejudice, ambiguity, propaganda, sweeping statements, and so forth. In his talk today he will discuss false reasoning* prejudiced inferences, and unfair conclusions, and he will give some advice about dealing with opponents whose arguments are sophistical or unsound.
There are two broadcasts in this series still to be given. Next Tuesday listeners are to hear an imaginary conversation devised by Robert H. Thouless , and on December 14 there is to be a summing up by Leonard Woolf.

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.
