Mr. R. S. LAMBERT: ' Pioneers of Social Progress-VI, William Lovett and the Discontent of the Under-dog '


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 Industrial Revolution that began in the -L latter part of the eighteenth century, generated, amongst its by-products, an intense and bitter discontent in the minds of the masses who suffered by it. This discontent, worked upon by different influences, manifested itself in different ways-the exploits of the Luddites and the machine-breakers, the campaigns for Parliamentary Reform, the Bristol Riots, and Chartism. In this talk Mr. Lambert will survey the evolution of the industrial masses, through friendly societies, trade unions, co-operative movements, and political leagues, from ill-directed violence to constitutional reform. Ho will deal particularly with the Chartist Movement, which at one point seemed almost capable of plunging England into a revolution such as those in which half the countries of Europe were involved at that time.

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.
