: Miss MARGARET RADCLIFFE, 'Medieval v. Modern Credulity ' (in the form of a Debate)

WE moderns araapt to make merry over the gullibility of the Middle Ages, when men believed that certain savage tribes had heads that grew under their shoulders and eyes in the soles of their feet, that the Hand of Glory cast people into an impenetrable slumber, and that somebody would one day find the Philosopher's Stone. But, quite apart from the question of how much truth there may be in some of these strange ideas-and they are doing things now with the atom that make the transmutation of metals seem quite a simple affair-are we ourselves really quite so free from credulity as we make out This is the question that Miss Margaret Radcliffe will debate in the third of her amusing talks 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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
