This evening he will begin to examine the claim of economics, inquiring how far it is true that buying-and-selling relations are the only ones that matter, and how much force there is in the economic interpretation of history.

mHE Statutory Commission, under the Presidency of Sir John Simon , is just about to start its work in India, and the future of India hangs, to some considerable extent, upon its findings and the spirit in which they are received. In this talk Sir Frederick Whyto who, as President of the Legislative Assembly from 1920 to 1925, has had a unique experience of Indian politics, will discuss the many problems with which the Commission is confronted, and the particular field it was appointed to investigate.
His talk will be followed with the greatest interest at a time when India and Indian affairs are looming so large in the minds of all men who are concerned with the future of our Indian Empire.

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.
