RESPONSIBILITIES OF EMPIRE

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.
The Rt. Hon. David Lloyd
George, M.P.
To attempt to summarise the life and achievements of David Lloyd George within the space of a note is as impossible as it seems unnecessary. He may be a Welshman, Caernarvon Boroughs may have returned him to Parliament for forty-seven years, but he is a national and international figure, his name and features known to everyone.
Some know him banally as the 'Wizard of Wales ', some may have forgotten that he has been described as a greater War Minister than Pitt ; all can tell of his eloquence ; but the thing apt to be overlooked in this man, who in power of place was second to none in the world in 1918, is the fact that a quarter of a century ago he was the driving force behind every social reform of our time.
Four years ago he broadcast in the notable series 'Whither Britain?'; tonight he is to speak in a series as notable ; and surely no man carried the burden of ' Responsibilities of Empire' through such an anxious period of the Empire's history.

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.
