: Miss NIGHTINGALE, ' Village Life in Other Lands—II, America '

THE first of this series of talks dealt with Jugo-Slavia, where, both socially and agriculturally, the village is still an important unit. The point about the village life of the United States, from which Miss Nightingale has just returned, is that there is none. The village is practically non-existent; American rural life is organized around the small town on the one hand, and the isolated farm on the other. The' reasons for this lack of an essential and historic feature of old-world society, and its results, are full of interest, especially to anyone who is studying the problems of the countryside.

: My Programme

by A Musical MAN-THE-STREET
THE identity of the latest contributor to the series of 'My Programmes' is shrouded in the deepest mystery. His idea of a perfect evening's programme was sent to Savoy Hill in an unsigned letter. So far as the B.B.C. knows, he may be a banker, a burglar or a bandmaster. Listeners will be able to deduce from tonight's programme what are its author's age, tastes and profession.








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.
