7.25 Professor W. W. WATTS: The Origins of Life-VI, Man the Hunter, the Fisherman, the Shepherd, and the Farmer, in his relationship to his environment ' /
PROFESSOR W. W. WATTS , whose contributions to the recent series of science talks, ' How the World Began,' will be fresh in listeners' minds, is giving the concluding talk in the present scries. He is Professor of Geology, Imperial College of Science and Technology, South Kensington. His talk this evening is in the nature ot a rounding-off ' of the survey of the origins of life, as revealed in fossils, etc., up to the time of early man. The occupations of primitive man, dictated by his relationship to his environment; the clearing of forests and the gradual growth of towns; the harnessing of natural resources and the final establishment of lines of Communication and transport, are among the phases of this far-away history that Professor Watts will discuss.

(Daventry only) Dr. WILLIAM BROWN, "Mind and Body
—VI, Vital Psychology.'
'KNOW THYSELF' is a familiar and ancient dictum and there is no doubting the benefits of honest self-examination when not carried to morbid excess: not until recently, however, has this tricksy business been systematized into a science. Psychology may be the stripling among the sciences, but it has a great future. What exactly that future may bo is part of the subject of Dr. Brown's talk tonight, which brings to a conclusion a series the aim of which has been to show us something of the science that is the study of the mind and of the mind's relationship to the body. Dr. Brown will also summarize the series and give a statement of the conclusions to which it has given rise.
RESPIGHI, one of the present-day Italian composers, and Principal of the Liceo of St. Cecilia in Rome, was first made known to us in this country by the Ballet La Boutique Fantasque (The Fantastic Toyshop'). Themusic is taken from some of the light pieces, chiefly written for pianoforte, which
Rossini composed in his last years, and Respighi has arranged them to make a delightfully fresh and dainty ballet. On the stage the dolls in the shop come to life and dance, and the story centres round a love affair between two of them. The several movements of the Ballet are first a Cossack Dance, lively and strenuous, a Nocturne, in quiet mood and quite short, n Polish Mazurka, an Italian Tarantella, a Waltz, in slow time, a boisterous Can-Can, and an energetic Galop.

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.
