: 17th Annual Conference of Educational Associations

Presidential Address by The EARL of LYTTON, P.C., G.C.S.I. on Some Aspects of the Problem of Education in India'
From the Great Hall, University
Collego of London.
THE education question in India is one of an importance that can hardly be exaggerated, and one that presents enormous difficulties. A vast country full of different races, different religions, different, languages, where large sections of tho population have no tradition of education and on the other hand. the universities are crowded with students eager for knowledge, provides the educationist with new set of problems. Lord Lytton has been Governor of Bengal, so he has had exceptional opportunities of judging tho situation about which ho will talk tins afternoon.

: Mr. S.C. Roberts: Introducing Dr. Johnson

Whether or not he was largely a creation of Boswell's peculiar literary gift, the Dr. Johnson we know is a great character, who repays any amount of study. That study must necessarily be conducted chiefly in the paces of Boswell's ' Life,' but for the benefit of those who have not yet tackled that bulky work, Mr. Roberts - who has written several books about Johnson - will introduce the great man in this evening's talk.

: '1928-1929'

A YEAR may be an arbitrary division of time, but there is (for most of us) a real and unique experience in the passing from the Old Year to the New. In these few moments of transition, we run through the whole gamut of emotions-reminiscence, always a little solemn, of the year that is going, with all the joys and sorrows that it has brought ; recollection of old friends, again only too often tinged with sadness ; the thrill thit comes with the moment when the New Year is born, and the wild hilarity that always springs up to greet it. Some such swift sequence of moods will find its reflection in the programme that will usher in 1929.








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.
