Mr. J. H. DRIBERG : 'The Proper Study of Mankind : An Introduction to Anthropology'


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.
THIS is the second of Mr. Driberg's three talks on the fascinating science of anthropology the study of man's culture at different stages of development, so many of which coexist side by side in the world of today. This afternoon he will discuss what constitutes, from the anthropological point of view, the organic unity of any society ; how far the common element is to be sought in bodily structure, language, custom, belief, social organization, and so on. We are requested to state that the two illustrations to Mr. Driberg's talks reproduced in the pamphlet on Special TaJks to Secondary Schools (pp. 13 and 14) are the work of Miss Pearl Binder, and are taken from her illustrations to Mr. Driberg's forthcoming book, ' The Peoplo of the Small Arrow.


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.
