The Rt. Hon. THE EARL or GOSFORD, M.C. :


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.
'China—I, An Englishman looks East-The New China '
THIS series of twelve Thursday talks will deal with a country whose problems, racial, social, political, and economic, are the concern of every thinking man or woman today. ' East is East and West is West' is an aphorism that has become more and more questioned as civilization has tended towards its present international aspect. Hard to understand, easy to romanticize, China needs, more than almost any other country, the searchlight of clear think. ing before it can be understood by Western races. The series will aim at giving listeners a detailed idea of the cultural and historical background of this huge country and at providing an intelligent understanding of its contemporary problems. Lord Gosford, who is a Director of the American Tobacco Co. (China), Ltd., is opening the series.


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.
