: Mr. R. S. LAMBERT : ' Pioneers of Social Progress-I, John Howard and the Cleansing of the Prisons'

THE 'civilization of today may not seem a very beautiful or graceful spectacle, but we have only to took at the satirists of a century ago to realize the magnitude of the horrors from which we have already escaped. In this series of talks Mr. Lambert will survey some of the great achievements in social progress-John Howard's crusade to cleanse the prisons ; Wilberforce's campaign against the slave trade ; Owen's attempts to reform industry; Shaftesbury's attack on child labour; and the lesser-known activities of Chadwick and Lovett. This evening's talk will deal with the greatest feat of all, and many listeners will no doubt be startled to learn of the revolting conditions that obtained in our prisons before Howard's time.

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.
