Mrs. SYDNEY. WEBB : Reminiscences of Herbert Spencer


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 name of Herbert Spencer seems to recall all the memories of the mausive intellectualism of the Victorian age, so remote from tho temper of tho post-war world ; and it is true that Spencer was born over a century ago. Yet he died so recently as in 1903 (his career overrunning tho reign of Victoria at both extremes) and, though his ' Social Statics ' appeared in 1850, his great ' Synthetic Philosophy ' was only finished in 1890, and Spencer was still in the full vigour of his powers within the lifetime of most of us. Mrs. Sidney Webb , who gives this talk, is well known as an economist and an authority on social history.

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.
