: Mr. H.T. Bush: Shrove Tuesday

SHROVE TUESDAY has now to such an extent survived Ash Wednesday - for which it was originally merely a preparation - that its observances must seem to many people meaningless. In the times, however, when Ash Wednesday opened forty days of real fasting for the bulk of the community, there was every incentive to make the day before it a festival, and it is of the curious customs that sprang up, in connection with this festival, in different parts of England, that Mr. Bush will talk to-day.


Speaker: H.T. Bush


The Piano Sonatas of Mozart

: Mr. EnWARD CRESSY: 'The Growth of Industry—(1) The Textile Industry.' S.B. from M'tmcltcater

THIS talk opens a new series by Mr. Edward
Cressy (who is already well known in London and the North of England) on the growth of industry—a subject a little knowledge of which makes it much easier to understand our complex industrial organization of the present day. hi this first talk he will deal with textile manufacture, which more than any uther wns revolutionized by the change from domestic production to large-scale factory organization reinforced by mechanical invention—which. of us does not remember reading of Hargreaves's Jenny and Crompton's Mule ?—and the coming of steam.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome
