: Sir ERNEST GRAY, How English Laws are Made by King and Parliament-VI, Making a Law'

IN his first five talks Sir Ernest Gray dealt with the making of the machinery by which our laws are made. Now he comes to the working of the machine-the history of a legislative measure in its progress through three readings in the Commons, with amendments, divisions, and Committee, its journey to the Lords, and the Royal Assent that finishes its transformation into law.


Unknown: Sir Ernest Gray

: Mr. CLIFFORD W. COLLINSON, 'Let's Go Hound the World '—VI

THIS week Mr. Collinson carries the story on from China to the Philippines, and down to the Equator, under the heat of the vertical sun. Next week he will move southward again.

Sonata in A Flat (Op. 110), First and Second
HERE are many moods, all of them expressed witli wonderful power, and most of them immediately appreciable by anyone.
The FIRST MOVEMENT sings its benignant way in gentle grace, with engaging little touches of ornamentation.
The SECOND MOVEMENT is all brisk, almost brusque determination, as of a person who obviously knows where he is going, and exactly how to get there. It is spare, taut, cleanly energetic music.


Played By: John Petrie

: Prof. J. BARCROFT, 'The Art and Practice of Breathing-To Live is to Breathe '

CORRECT breathing is the foundation of health, and listeners who heard Dr. Winifred Cullis 's talk on the subject, in her recent series on ' Health and Commonsense.' will be particularly glad of the opportunity to go into it more fully. Professor Barcroft, who this evening starts a new series of six talks, is now Professor of Physiology at Cambridge, where he is a Fellow of King's College. He is a past-President of the Physiological Section of the British Association.

: Eye-Witness Account of the Senior T.T. Race by ' Ixion ' of The Motor Cycle. S.B. from Liverpool

FOR those who like thrills, there are plenty of places in which to seek them. Crook plays, the movies, steeplechasing, prize-fights— all provide their quota ; but for real genuine hair-raising excitement, one thrill following so fast on the next that one never gets one's breath back at all, nothing can beat the Tourist Trophy races in the Isle of Man, when racing motor-cycles flash along the roads and skid round corners at an incredible number of miles an hour. And, of course, the races serve a very useful purpose in providing a test for the manufacturers, and giving British riders and British machines a chance to show their powers in competition with their rivals from abroad. This eye-witness account will be given by an expert, whose name carries weight in all the circles where motor-cycle racing and production are discussed.

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.
