TTISITORS to the seaside during the V summer may have noticed on the sands a crowd of young people assembled in a miniature sand cathedral, singing choruses and listening to addresses by speakers often garbed in most unclerical attire. This is one side of the work of the Children's Special Service Mission, which exists to show children that religion is no gloomy ' wet blanket' business, but the best way in the world of getting real happiness.

: THE FOUNDATIONS OF ENGLISH POETRY-VIII, Gray and Collins, read by Mr. J. C. STOBART

GRAY'S Elegy is perhaps the most famous poem in the English language. Certainly it has given more quotations to the vocabulary of the average educated man than any other poem ; its flowing and felicitous diction falls naturally into phrases easy to remember and apt to apply. Were it not for the Elegy, Gray might be no better known nowadays than his contemporary, William Collins , who wrote some fine odea in the Indian Summer of classicism, before the romantic reaction set in. His ' Ode to Evening' will form, with the Elegy, the matter of the reading this afternoon.

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.
