: EVENSONG

Relayed from WESTMINSTER ABBEY

: Mrs. G. M. TREVELYAN: 'The Growing Generation—I, Play Centres '

THE series of talks, of which this is the first, will deal with half-a-dozen different aspects of the same thing—what can be done, and what is being done. for the growing generation. This afternoon Mrs. Trevelyan, the wife of the well-known historian, and herself a writer and speaker, well known in this sphere, will talk about Play Centres, a subject in which much interest has been taken of late, and future talks in the series will deal with such topics as Nursery Schools, the care of babies, fresh air and sunlight, and food for the growing child.

: Mr...T. C. SQUIRE: Poet Adventures '

IN the first of this series of talks, last month,
Mr. Squire (the poet, essayist, and literary critic) talked of Byron. This time, his subject is Sir Philip Sidney-as different a typo as can be imagined, considerirg that, like Byron, he was a poet and an arisioorat who died in war. To the popular mind, Byron is tho type of the wicked nobleman amongst poets, as Sidney is of the scholar-gentleman. How much truth there is in this view will emerge from Mr. Squire's talk this afternoon.

: Prof. W. CRAMP : ‘ A Hundred Years of Electrical Engineering-I, What was known 100 years ago.' Relayed from Birmingham

A HUNDRED years ago electrical engineering as a science was in the cradle, and as a profession it was still unborn. Now, of course, it is one of the most important of the applied sciences and a profession that attracts more recruits every year.
In this series of talks Professor Cramp (who, besides b iig Professor of Electrical Engineering at Birmingham University, is a consulting engineer of many years' experience) will trace this astounding progress, beginning this evening with tho state of knowledge as it was in 1827, after the achievements of Franklin, Coulomb, Volta, and Ampère—which, in the case of the last two, had left their names inscribed in the electrical vocabulary for all time.

: Men and Cities - Albania, the Land of the Eagle

Mr. HENRY W. NEVINSON:
ALBANIA as an independent State is a very recent newcomer to the society of nations, but her short history is studded with stirring events—wars and revolts, frontier incidents and treaties revised and revised again. Before this last development, Albania was for centuries tho mountain home of a race of wild and hardy hill-men, whose allegiance to the Ottoman Empire was never more than nominal, and both the country and its inhabitants are pre-eminently picturesque. Mr. Nevinson is one of the foremost literary travellers of this century; his long record of service as a war-correspondent in all parts of the world has given him experience and observation without ever dulling his appreciation of new things, and his very fine prose style gives his writing a permanent place in the literature of travel.

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.
