' Group Listening'


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.
J. H. NICHOLSON , Professor of Education at Armstrong College, Newcastle-upon-Tyne
Though this important feature of the B.B.C.'s work has been in existence for five and a half years, there must be many who do not know exactly what it is. It is in essence this : There are a certain number of people who want to make the best use they can of the series of educational talks, and with this end in view, they meet each week under a leader to listen to the talks and discuss them afterwards. Since this feature was innovated, the B.B.C. has been experimenting with discussion groups. This experiment came to an end in July.
Beginning in October, three series of talks a week will be broadcast. They have been specially arranged to meet the needs of discussion groups. Professor Nicholson has played a prominent part in the movement during the past five years and is already well known to all those who have attended any of the B.B.C. summer schools for wireless group leaders. This evening he will discuss the value of group listening and will make some suggestions for the guidance of group leaders.

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.
