: Prof. GEORGE GORDON: .'More Companionable Books-IT, " The Pilgrim's Progress " '

To the present generation ' The Pilgrim's
Progress ' is apt to seem a grim, forbidding book, the relic of an age when people read the Bible and knew Foxe's ' Book of Martyrs ' by heart. But anyone who has the courage to read it will find that it is indeed a companionable book ; one of those stories in which you follow one character—Christian—through a series of adventures and tribulations, and feel a real affection for him at the end. Quite apart from its quality as the epic of Puritan religion, ' The Pilgrim's Progress' is as human a story as any of those of which Professor Gordon has talked.

: THE ENGLISH SINGERS

FLORA MANN , NORMAN STONE , NELLIE CARSON , NORMAN NOTLEY , LILIAN BERGER ,CUTHBERT KELLEY
THE English Singers have just returned to this country after a phenomenally successful tour in the United States. America prodtices singers like The Revellers, who are probably unrivalled in their singing of syncopated songs, but They have no one to compare with The
English Singers in the singing of Madrigals, Folk. Songs, and the like, which call for finished artistry both in conception end performance. This English invasion of America was wholly successful, and we are glad that tho first public performance of the Singers after their return-like the farewell on October 6, before they went—will be broadcast from The London Station.

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.
