: The Meeting of the British Association at Leeds

Presidential Address by Prof. Sir ARTHUR KEITH, M.D., LL.D., F.R.S.
'Darwin's theory of Man's Descent as it stands today'
Relayed from the Majestic Cinema, Leeds
THE annual meetings of the British Association bring together savants from all the branches of science, and the papers read before its assemblies, if they do not often publish any new discoveries of epoch-making importance, usually sum up the year's progress in scientific research. Tonight listeners will hear the presidential address of Sir Arthur Keith , the famous anthropologist and anatomist, on the position of the Darwinian theory today. It is nearly seventy years since first ' The Origin of Species ' fluttered the Victorian dovecotes, and in the meantime-especially of recent years-much evidence has been discovered that goes to modify the original theory as Darwin announced it then. It will bo particularly interesting to hear the present position reviewed by Sir Arthur Keith , whose opinion on all anthropological questions carries such weight.








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.
