2.55 Junior English
@ A Poetry Programme
For the first time this term poetry is to take the place of prose, and teachers especially may like to know the poems that are to be broadcast: ' Love the Baby' by James Elroy Flecker ; ' The Bells of Heaven ' by Ralph Hodgson ; ' Milk for the Cat' (a vivid description of a cat drinking its fill and then going to sleep) by Harold Monro ; ' Jenny Wren ' (pointing out how queer it is that the smallest bird of all has such a large voice) by W. H. Davies ; ' Pibroch of Donuil Dhu ' (ballad of a Scottish chieftain) by Sir Walter Scott ; and Mrs. Kamschatka's ' Washing Day ', a humorous rhymed story, by E. J. Coning. It is of interest that this last is taken from Aunt Judy 's Magazine, one of the earliest of children's magazines.
3.15 A talk on next week's Ⓓ broadcast music
3.35 Talk for Sixth Forms
@ World Affairs
These talks bring Sixth Forms into contact with acknowledged authorities on a number of different subjects. Broadcasts are being given this term on World Affairs, National Movements in Literature, and Problems of Democracy.
Today Sir Frederick Whyte will deal with some aspect of foreign or Imperial affairs which is topical just now. Sir Frederick was President of the Legislative Assembly of India from 1920 to 1925. Last year he gave ten talks to Sixth Forms on Foreign Affairs. He gave a talk this term on World Affairs on January 28 and he is to give yet another on April 1.

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.
