'The Future of the Cinema '—I: Mr. SIDNEY BERNSTEIN


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 these days the cinema attracts greater notice even than the theatre. The series of talks which Mr. Bernstein opens tonight is, therefore. certain of a wide and attentive audience. Two years since, it might not have been possible to discover seven leaders of our home film industry to give such a series on ' The Future of the Cinema.' The chaotic days are now happily past. British films are well established and beginning to challenge America and Germany on their own ground.
Tonight's talker, Mr. Sidney Bernstein , is ' a man of ideas.' Though he has for years been keenly interested in the production side of the films (he was one of the original founders of London's Film Society), it is not in this sphere, as it happens, that his ideas have found most concrete expression. The presentation side has more largely claimed him. He has built cinemas, experimented with special programmes for children, circulated questionnaires in order to test the likes and dislikes of his audiences—done much, in fact, to insure that films are properly enjoyed.

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.
