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.
rpHIS is tho second of the series of talks in which three distinguished psychologists — Professor J3urt, Dr. Crichton-Miller and Dr. Potts—are to discuss the development of mind and character, with reference, in tho first half of tho series, to the child. Professor
Burt, who gave tho first talk last week, is
Psychologist to the London County Council, and the author of ' The Young Delinquent,' one of the most important books on child psychology. In this talk ho deals with tho scientific investigation of overwork, its causes and how it can bo prevented.

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.
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.
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.
