Sea Fever
I have twelve oxen
Spring Sorrow
The Soldier
JOHN IRELAND (born 1879) wrote a fair amount of music when he was in his twenties, but most of it he has scrapped. He has not been a facile, over-productive composer, but has taken great pains to forge and temper his own virile style. He has, however, written upwards of fifty songs; some of these have become really popular-most of all the first two on this evening's programme. In fact, all these four are as representative as could be, at any rate, of all but his latest work.
7.25 Dr. H. J. W. HETHERINGTON : ' The Meaning of Good—I, The Question. Is an Answer Possible ?' S.B. from Liverpool
THE question that Dr. Hetherington will attempt to answer in this series of talks is one that goes to the roots of all philosophy. All men seek and value some things-wealth, fame, private happiness, and so on—and know that certain things are better worth having than others ; thoughtful men have tried to estimate the relative values of different kinds of ' good,' and some philosophers have tried to define the supreme good. Today Dr. Hetherington will deal with the views of those who, on the contrary, aver that there is no answer to the question, ' What is good ? '

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.
