Men Talking-9


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 speaker in this series this evening is well known to listeners not only as a contributor to THE RADIO TIMES, but as a broadcaster over many years, for he made his début on the air as long ago as 1924, when he gave an organ recital from St. John's, Regent's Park, the church by Lord's cricket ground. He has since given over 200 broadcasts.
C. Whitaker-Wilson was a professional organist until four years ago, when he turned to writing and met with immediate success. On the air he was the author of Christopher Wren , in which he acted, also of Mozart, in which he played the part of Haydn. He wrote the second of the famous trials, that of Lord Lovat, and played the Narrator, and also the fifth trial, that of Lady Lisle before Judge Jeffries. He has written the Trial of Mary Queen of Scots, to be broadcast next year, and is now preparing the Trial of Titus Oates. In addition to all this, he is, of course, a well-known radio journalist, and the author of a number of successful books.

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.
