: Mrs. C. P. TREVELYAN, ' How to Improve our Villages-Preservation of Beauty in the Countryside '

TRANSPORT and sanitatioh and the other material amenities will not alone suffice to revive the departed glories of English village life unless the country remains as attractive as the English countryside has always been. If the corrugated iron shack, the raw brick villa, and the flagrant petrol pump are allowed to disfigure the landscape, country life will lose its chief advantage over life in town. Mrs. Trevelyan, the wife of the. ex-President of the Board of Trade, will discuss this aspect of the question in her talk this afternoon.

: SUSSEX DIALECT TALK, arranged .ty Mr. E. Le BRETON MARTIN

T ISTENERS who are interested in English dialects will remember several dialect talks arranged by Mr. le Breton Martin some time ago. This evening's talk, which will be on similar lines, is devoted to the most famous of all the county dialects of England-the broad speech of Sussex, which has become familiar to Londoners in many a roadside inn, which has been celebrated in song by Hilaire Belloo and reproduced in the novels of Sheila Kaye-Smith .

: Mr. KINGSLEY MARTIN, ' What Society Means -Propaganda and Proper Geese ' S.B. from Manchester

SUGGESTIBILITY, on a vast scale, is a feature of modern civilization. The headline, the news story, the advertisement, and the cartoon all work their effect on vast masses of people all of whom have, nowadays, an influence on public affairs. In this talk Mr. Kingsley
Martin will analyze modern propaganda and how it succeeds.

: Ourselves as Others See Us: Herr Lion Feuchtwanger looks at us

THIS is the second of a number of talks in which certain foreign observers of especial perception and wit will tell us how our country, our manners, and our civilization generally impress them. Today's talk is being given by a German author whose name leapt into fame hero with the publication of a translation of his great novel, 'Jew Süss' - a monumental story of the eighteenth century that caused a real sensation amongst the critics and the reading public. Herr Feuchtwanger, unlike some authors of monumental works, has a keen sense of humour and a very nimble mind, and the mirror that he holds up to us tonight will probably give us more than one surprise.

: 'TILLY OF BLOOMSBURY'

A Comedy in Three Acts, by IAN
HAY
Adapted from the Author's
Novel, ' Happy-go-Lucky '
Arranged and Abridged for
Broadcasting
Produced by GORDON MCCONNEL
(For full particulars see page 421.)
IN 1913 Ian Hay published a novel called
' Happy-Go-Lucky.' It was in his most characteristic vein—astory of a Bloomsbury boarding-house, of pathetic pretensions and shabbygentility with the bailiffs in. Its popularity as a book brought about its dramatization, and, as Tilly of Bloomsbury, it was produced at the Apollo in July, 1919. It ran for over 400 performances, and was revived at the Strand in 1922.








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.
