Mr. J. C. STOBART Readings from Four Rugby School Poets


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.
W. S. LANDOR (1775-1864). A. H. CLOUGH (1819―1861), MATTHEW ARNOLD (1822-1888),
RUPERT BROOKE (1887-1915)
ALL the four poets from whose works Mr.
Stobart—who is Director of Education of the B.B.C., and himself an old Rugbeian—Is to read tonight were Rugby men, and it is possible to trace a common quality in their style. All of them possess a certain precision of phrase that may or may not be due to that rigorous training in classical verse-writing which was the foundation of education at Rugby School when Landor went there at the end of the eighteenth century, as in Rupert Brooke 's schooldays in the present century. Listeners will be able to judge for themselves when they have heard the extracts that Mr. Stobart will read.

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.
