: Miss JOAN KENNEDY : ' The Riviera'

ENGLAND is a great country, and the heart of a great Empire, and so on ; but at certain times of the year very few of us would stay in it if we had our choice. Every winter, in fact, the Riviera is besieged by crowds of those English people who. being beyond the necessity of working for a living, can spend their time on the trail of the hot sun and blue skies that do, despite the recent epidemic of snow and sleet, favour the Riviera more normally than our own shores. This afternoon Miss Kennedy will regale us with a word-picture of that happy coast famous in the gossip columns, the illustrated papers, and the novels of international, crime.

: Mr. Rupert Lee: 'How to appreciate Sculpture '

Appreciation of sculpture is probably even less widely diffused than appreciation of painting, and the terrible statues that disfigure so many of our public places have done much to propagate an impression that the function of the sculptor is to decorate street refuges with lifelike effigies of incompetent bronze generals and sooty philanthropists in top-hats. Mr. Rupert Lee, who in this talk will explain what sculpture is and suggest what is the right way to look at it, is himself a practising sculptor and president of the London group.

: ' Travellers' Tales': Mr. H. M. TOMLlNSON : ' The Rediscovery of Manhattan '

TRAVELLERS' talcs vary from the delicious but totally inaccurate stories of Sir John Mandeville to the informative but arid narratives of so many modern explorers. Mr. Tomlinson is one of the few living writers who can make a true account of travel in the East-in Malayan jungles or Indian seas-as thrilling as a romance. This evening he will talk not of the mysterious seas of the East, but of the triumph of man's occupation of the face of the earth-the towering buildings of New York. from which he has recently returned.

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.
