: PLAY TO SCHOOLS 'ROBERT E. LEE' (John Drinkwater)

THE champion of a losing side usually suffers oblivion regardless of his merits. Robert E. Lee , the Confederate general in the American Civil War, has been luckier than most. His brilliance as a soldier and the nobility of his character have been recognised by historians, and Mr. John Drinkwater , the author of the play that made Lee's great rival, Abraham Lincoln , familiar to the British public, went on five years later to make a: drama of the career of Lee himself. This play, a broadcast version of which will be performed this afternoon, was produced at the Regent Theatre in 1923.

HOFFNUNG (Hope) is a very brief aspiration. The labourer dedicates to Hope all his toil, with cheerful belief in its fruition some day.
An einc Quelle (To a Pool). A lover begs the pool that mirrors his beloved's face to keep for him an image of her. When she herself is near, he cannot utter his love, but to that vision of her he will reveal it.
Jdgers Abendlied (Huntsman's Evening Song).
He pursues, not his usual game, but one whom at present he must follow afar, who bewitches him with her sweet enchantment.

AN APPEAL BY EARL JELLICOE
In previous years the special appeal for Poppy Day has been made by the Prince of Wales.

: Tendencies in Industry Today

Lord MELCHETT : The Rationalisation of Industry
EARLIER in the year a series of talks on 'Finance in the Modern World' gave listeners a chance to hear the financial problems of today discussed by experts of the first rank. This evening Lord Melchett opens a new series on the industrial tendencies of the present and the future. He himself is, of course, one of the outstanding figures in the most Olympian circles of British industry ; as Sir Alfred Mond he carried through the enormous amalgamation that produced Imperial Chemical Industries (and, incidentally, one of the biggest buildings in London), and he is chairman of that, and of a great number of chemical and colliery companies. He stands for trustification on the largest scale and the scientific control of industry. Ho will be succeeded in this series by speakers so different in outlook as Mr. Walter M. Citrine , Mr. H. D. Henderson, Major Walter Elliot , Miss Lynda Grier , and Sir Herbert Samuel.

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.
