: AN ORGAN RECITAL

by ARTHUR R. SAUNDERS
Organist and Director of the Choir. St. Mark's.
Hamilton Terrace, N.W.
Relayed from St. Mary-le-Bow Church

: Mr. ERNEST YOUNG and Mr. J. A. WILLIAMSON : ' Empire History and Geography '

IN-the second of this term's series on ' Empire
History and Geography ' Mr. Williamson will tell the story of the Union of South Africa and how it came about, and Mr. Ernest Young will describe the winds and rains and the natural regions into which the sub-Continent is divided. In the short political history of white South Africa-for a century ago that history had barely begun—geographical factors have played a very large part, and nowhere in the Empire is an interdependence of history and geography better illustrated than here.

: Mr. ALLEN WALKER, 'London's Great Buildings—II, The Tower of London as a Prison'

LAST week, Mr. Allen Walker talked of the Tower of London during the earlier part of its long and chequered history, when it alternated between being'a fortress and a palace.
Today he will continue the story in the later i part of its existence, when, from being a State prison where the most formidable rivals to the crown were caged, it sank gradually into its present position of a mere relic-a dummy fortress, a museum of the antique and a peepshow for sightseers on the trail of the past.

: Mr. G. A. ATKINSON, ' Seen on the Screen'

MORE than ever in 1928, the movies are one of the symptoms of the way our civilization is going. No longer a crude device, interesting only for its novelty, or a ' trick ' entertainment designed by the intelligent, the cinema as an art and as a cultural force has come to stay ; and its importance as propaganda and as an industry is attracting the serious attention of legislators all over the world.
The films come pouring out of Hollywood in their thousands, and out of the English and Continental studios in their hundreds. No layman can see them all, but no one can afford to miss the significant ones. Hence the importance of listening to Mr. Atkinson's expert and witty reviews of current productions in his fortnightly talks.

: THE FOUNDATIONS OF MUSIC

BRAHMS' MACELONE LIEDER
Sung by MARK RAPHAEL (Baritone)

: THE MASTER OF BALLIOL (Dr. A. D. LINDSAY), ' Philosophy and our Common Problems-II. Philosophy in Water-Tight Compartments.' (Relayed from Oxford)

ECONOMICS—politics—ethics—each of the three puts forward its. own scale of values. and claims for it sole importance to the exclusion of all else. But life is not all a matter of buying-and-selling, or commanding-and-obeying, or choosing between right and wrong, and we can never get our social problems resolved until we settle finally the weight that should be given to each of these claims. This is the argument that the Master of Balliol will develop in the second of his series of talks.

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.
