: Sir W. BEACH THOMAS : ‘ Familiar Birds and Beasts of the Countryside '-I

ONE of the chief joys of the English outdoors is the delightful variety of its native birds. It is fitting, therefore, that the bulk of this series of talks by Sir William Beach Thomas , the well-known writer on Nature subjects, and author of 'The English Year,' should deal chiefly with the songs and habits of the birds. In the last two talks, however, he will travel to the four-footed animals by way of that strange hybrid, the bat.

: Dr. CYRIL BURT: ‘Development of Mind and Character-Changes in Temperament and Character '

THIS talk resumes the series on ' The Development of Mind and Character ' given by three distinguished psychologists last summer. Then, Professor Cyril Burt , Dr. Crichton-Miller and Dr. Potts dealt specifically with the problems of the child ; in this second part of the series they will discuss the adolescent. All of them are not merely academic experts, but men of experience in practical psychopathy. Professor Burt-who gives the first two talks-has been since 1913 Psychologist to the Education Department of the London County Council, and has all their information with which to test theoretical conclusions. Dr. Potts is Psychological Expert to the Birmingham Justices, and Hon. Physician to the Tavistock Clinic, and Dr. Crichton-Miller is Hon. Director of the Clinic, which is a well-known institution for the treatment of functional nerve cases. Listeners interested in the practical aspect of psychology have, therefore, in this series an opportunity to hear it expounded by psychologists who have had every opportunity to verify their ideas.

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.
