THERE seems to be little connection between the strenuous delights of winter sports in winter sunlight, when the keen dry air sets the blood tingling in one's veins, and 'the morbid science' ; but, as Manchester listeners know, Professor Pear is particularly expert at relating psychology to the less morbid facts of life. He is himself a keen skater, and as for his reputation as a psychologist, there is no need to enlarge upon that.
AT the end of the year out thoughts-if we are at all apt to be sentimental — turn even more to the experiences of the Old
. Year than to anticipations of the New. So, even while Savoy Hill hums with plans for making 1928 a record year for broadcasting, it is not out of place to recall the past triumphs of 1927. The English-man's memory is notoriously short, and oven such outstanding events as, say, the Boat Race broadcast may not be very vivid in it by now. But tonight's programme will bring back in all their freshness the keenest emotions that the faithful listener experienced during the year.

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.
