The Commonwealth of Nations-IX
Mr. JOHN J. HORGAN : 'The Irish Free State today'
In this interesting and stimulating series of talks, the intention of which is to present a picture of the British Empire as it is today, the Irish Free State-with all eyes upon it-takes its place to-night. The speaker will deal frankly and illummatingly with the situation in Ireland today, and will give an account of the aims and ideas of the present Government and of the opposition. He will start with a brief review of the relations between Ireland and the British Government since the Treaty of December, 1921, and will make an unbiased survey bf the situation as it exists at the present time. No greater opportunity to see all sides of a difficult and delicate problem, both as between the opposing political parties in Ireland, and as between Ireland and ourselves, has ever been given. Listeners, however knowledgeable, howsoever wise, must know more after this talk than they did before of something that is affecting the history of our times.


Unknown: Mr. John J. Horgan

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.
