Gladys Young in readings from 'THE AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF MARGOT ASQUITH'

Synopsis

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.
Volume 2
Arranged for broadcasting in twelve episodes by H. Oldfield Box
Produced by Audrey Cameron
PART 11
Part 10 told how on the morning of November 29, 1917, Mr. Asquith showed his wife the now famous Lansdowne Letter, in which Lord Lansdowne listed the points he thought might make peace talks acceptable to Germany. It also told of the opening of the German Spring Offensive in 1918, and of the series of amazing German successes between March 22 and April 1. At the urgent request of Lord Haig and Lord Milner, the Supreme Command of the Allied Forces was taken over by Marshal Foch. Statements in the House of Commons by Mr. Lloyd George on April 9 satisfied the ignorant but terrified the army; and on May 7, General Frederick
Maurice-the Director of Military Operations-published a letter categorically denying the accuracy of the Prime Minister's statements. Mr. Bonar Law, speaking for the Prime Minister in the House of Commons, suggested there should be an enquiry, but the Government, at the instigation of Mr. Balfour, changed the motion and the enquiry was turned into a vote of censure.

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.
