Missionary Talk'INDIA TO-DAY'


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.
Missionary Hopes and Fears
Basil J. Mathews , Professor of Christian World-Relations in the University of Boston, Mass.
One of the interesting features of this talk is that Professor Basil Mathews is to speak of a conversation he had with Mahatma Gandhi less than two months ago. And he will speak of Christian outcaste villages in which the faces of men and women, boys, and girls were somehow different from those of their fellow-outcastes in the non-Christian villages he had passed. On the former was some degree of happiness ; on the latter not even a glimpse of hope. He will speak of all that the Christian Church in India has done for the ' untouchables '
(and is still doing in spite of difficulties), as Mr. Gandhi agreed.
Basil Mathews , well known in this country as the author of ' The Clash of Colour ', ' Paul the Dauntless ', and other books, is just back from a three months' visit to India. He stayed with the poet, Rabindranath Tagore , toured Indian villages, and talked with Indians and Britons on many spheres of work.

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.
