'Rulers-3, Frederick Temple '
By the Rev. S. C. CARPENTER , D.D.,
Master of the Temple
IN 1830 an English boy, who had been born in Santa Maura, came to England with his parents, and his new home was a farm in Devon. His father went abroad again and died, and little Frederick Temple was sent to Blundell's School, Tiverton. In due course he won a scholarship at Balliol. One of the trustees, meeting him, said : ' Temple, I cannot say what you are going to be, but this I am sure of, that if you live long enough, you will be one of the greatest men in England.' Temple lived to be the second greatest headmaster of Rugby, Bishop of Exeter, Bishop of London, and Archbishop of Canterbury.
He was yet another great churchman to come under the influence of the Oxford Movement. Oxford also stirred in him a pity for the oppressed. Mill and factory hands were then doing a twelve-hour day for a miserable wage ; children of eight years old and under were employed in the mines ; agricultural labourers were crushed by poverty, isolation, and helplessness. That sympathy for the poor marked his life ; his work on the Schools' Enquiry Commission marked the beginning of a new epoch in education.

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.
