: Mr. ROGER FRY: ' The Meaning of Pictures'

ROGER FRY who iis giving this important series of talks on pictures, is among the few critics who are also artists of distinction. His best-known work, perhaps, is Vision and Design, and many listeners will be familiar with his trenchant and extremely individual artoriticisms in the Press. The series is intended to give some idea of what those who are most interested in the great masterpieces of art find in them, how they look at them, what they look for, and what they know it is useless to look for. Two of the pictures discussed by Mr. Fry in his first talk are Luke Fildes ' Doctor and a ' story picture' by Giotto ; the point emphasised being that the much greater skill of representation of the former does not compensate for the absence of other qualities which have made tho Giottc a joy through many centuries. The vision of everyday life, the vision of the ' ordinary ' man, is practical; the vision of the artist, however, is contemplative and disinterested—them is the key to Mr. Fry's analysis.
The pictures discussed week by week will be found reproduced in the current issue of The Listener.

: The Rev. FRANK L. JENNINGS: ' Tramping with Tramps'

MR. JENNlNGS, who is the author of 'In London's Shadows,' has made an exhaustive and first-hand study of the vagrancy question. This summer he lived the life of a vagrant for a month, tramping the roads, sleeping in casual wards, and making the acquaintance of hundreds of ' down-and-outs.' No one, even in the casual wards where he slept, discovered his identity. He tramped for 300 miles, from spike ' to ' spike,' begging his food and doing odd jobs by the way. Mr. Jennings, who has become known as the 'Doss House Parson,' broadcast some two years ago on the subject of vagrancy in the East End. In his talk tonight he will describe some of his racy and illuminating experiences during his most recent tour of the underworld.

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.
