Mr. J. C. SQUIRE : ' A Modern Poet (Robert Bridges) '


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.
IN pronounced and perhaps conscious contrast to somo of his predecessors, the present Poet
Laureate is the most silent of contemporary poets. He has consistently refused to be drawn into expression by public events such as inspired the ' Ode on the Death of the Duke of Wellington ' and the ' Charge of the Light Brigade,' and that although his Laureateship, starting in 1913, has covered national crises such as Tennyson never knew. He is, in fact, probably better known by his great anthology, ' The Spirit of Man,' than by his own poems, which are, however, as distinguished as the work of any living poet. Mr. Squire, the poet, essayist and editor of The London Mercury, will do something to spread understanding of the genius of Dr. Bridges in his talk this afternoon.

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.
