: Mrs. H. A. L. FISHER,' Before and After the War—A Hundred Years Ago '

IN today's talk Mrs. Fisher continues her discussion of the effects of the French wars on English history, social, political, and economiceffeets very profound and far-reaching, that can still be clearly seen in, for instance, the Catholic Emancipation Act of 1829, the first Reform Act of 1832, and the repeal of the Corn Laws in 1846.

: Mr. CHARLES FFOULKES, \The Tournament '

THE tournament of tho sixteenth century, with which this talk deals, was a highly-organized and formal trial of skill, bearing about as much resemblance to the sanguinary, promiscuous fights to the death of the Middle Ages us a modern inter-Varsity boxing match does to an old-fashioned 'battle-royal.' The tournaments in which Henry VIII competed are notable chiefly for their rigid rules and the amazingly elaborate armour worn, and Mr. Ffoulkes, who is Curator of the Tower Armouries, and the author of many works on armour, has much of interest to say on these points.

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.
