Schoolchildren and others who are listening to these talks will find at the end of them that they have learnt a lot of geography in a singularly enjoyable way.
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 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.

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.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
