: MISS E. M. HEWITT, ' Lost Houses '

FAMOUS houses live longer than the people who made them famous, but the march of time takes them too in its course. Mimi Pinson 's cottage on Montmartre; Warwick Priory ; the Kim House at- Chelsea; the 'Folly' on the Thames: Mrs. Siam's India House; the home of Dr. Johnson's friends, the Thrales—these arc some of the vanished houses of which Miss Hewitt will talk today.

: Talk on International Affairs by Dama RACHEL CROWDY (under the auspices of the League of Nations Union): the League protects Women and Children.

THE most amazing document yet published by the League of Nations was the ' first part of the report on the traffic in women and girls, and the second part, which is not to be published until it has been communicated to the Governments concerned, will be more amazing Btill. The two reports together form a terrible indictment of modern civilization, and show the enormous scale of the evil that the League is attempting to stamp out. To succeed, it must be supported by public opinion, and Dame Crowdy, who is now Chief of the Social Questions section of the League Secretariat, will attempt to inform publio opinion in this evening's talk.

: Prof. V. II. MOTTRAM, 'My Correspondence '

LAST January and February, aa most listeners will remember, Professor Mottram gave a series of talks on ' Present-Day Problems of Food,' in which lie discussed diet from the point of view of health. These talks aroused extraordinary interest, and ever since the series closed, Professor Mottram has been deluged with letters asking questions and raising new points. Many of these are worth answering in detail, and this is what Professor Mottram will do in this evening's talk.

With explanatory descriptions by Mr. FILSON YOUNG
Relayed from the Town Hall, Manchester
DR. KENDRICK PYNE , from the time
DR. KEXDRIOK PYX!', from tho time that he was appointed organist in 1863, at the age of eleven, to All Saint's Church, Bath, has had a career crowded with experience of cathedral and organ music, and to-day at the age of seventy-five his name is an International one in musical circles and his powers remain unimpaired. He may truly be called the ' grand old man ' of the organ world. Though he made a name for himself in the South of England. in the United States, and in Brussels during appointments which he held there, he will always be chiefly identified with the Korth of England, having held the positions of organist at Manchester Cathedral from 1876 to 1898 and at the Manchester Town Hall since 1877.
Additional interest will bu lent to Dr. Pyne's programme tonight by the special accompanying descriptions of the music and the setting to' be given by Mr. Filson Young , who was himself once a pupil of the organist.
An article by Mr. Filson Young which will help listeners to understand and to enjoy the broadcast will be found on page 70 and a picture of the Manchester Town .Hall Organ will be found on page 89.

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.
