: Mr. ERIC PARKER : ' Out of Doors from Week to Week-X, Early Nests '

: Miss VIOLET BRAND: Something New from Something Old: The Family Hats-Straws'

BUYING a new hat is well known to be one of the groat comforts and refreshments of the feminine mind, but there is a subtler and a rarer thrill in making a now hat out of, an old one. In this talk Miss Violet Brand , who has already imparted much useful information about trousers and carpets and what not, will explain how this economical pleasure can be enjoyed.
With regard to Miss Brand's talk of last week, you will find the diagrams which she mentioned on page 567-

: Mr. R.S. Lambert: Pioneers of Social Progress: IV: Lord Shaftesbury and the Saving of the Children

It is a startling thought that so recently as 1847 children of any age from five upwards were still working over ten hours a day in insanitary and uninspected mills, factories, and mines. The conditions of labour which are so vividly described in Mrs. Trollope's 'Michael Armstrong, the Factory Boy,' wore the inspiration of Lord Shaftesbury, the great philanthropist and social reformer, who, in addition to many other campaigns, was responsible for the Mines Act of 1842 and the Ten Hours Act of 1847. He has, however, an even more rare and striking monument in one of our few really popular songs:-
And such a man as that was Lord Shaftesbury, A good man and a true friend of the poor.

: TRAVELLERS' Tales : Miss STELLA BENSON, ' Out-of-the-way Places in China '

THE literary traveller ' who rushes round
Belgimn or the French Riviera with a notebook and a camera and then comes home and produces a book about it, is becoming a curse. Luckily, his vociferations cannot quite drown the quieter voice of the real travellers, real observers, and real artists in words, such as Miss Stella Benson , who is to broadcast tonight. Readers of her books —' The Little World,' for instance, or ' Sketches of Travel '—will know what to expect from her when she has so wonderful ' a subject as China, that interesting land of paradoxes, in which she has lived for several years.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
