: Mr. ALLEN WALKER

: London's Great
Buildings-V, Southwark Cathedral'
SOUTHWARK CATHEDRAL is probably better known, even to Londoners, as the source of broadcast organ recitals than it is by sight, for it has been surrounded by buildings, railways and wharves until it has earned the title of London's least known Cathedral. But it is a beautiful Early English building with a long and interesting history. Gower, Fletcher and Massinger are amongst the famous men who are buried there, which Mr. Allen Walker will recall in his talk this afternoon.

: Miss E. M. HEWITT : ' Shrove Tuesday '

QHROVE TUESDAY has long ceased to have much actual meaning for an age that has forgotten how to fast and for which Ash Wednesday has no rigours in store. But there are still some pleasant old customs associated with the day, and the Westminster pancake-tossing is as typically English an institution as the Mardi Gras celebrations are typically French. Miss Hewitt will describe some of the Shrove Tuesday traditions in to-day's talk.

: THE MASTER OF BALLIOL (Dr. A. D. LINDSAY): ' Philosophy and our Common Problems-V, Morals as the Basis of Society.'

(Relayed from

IN last week's talk the Master of Balliol dismissed the claim of the economist that buying-and-selling relations can alone constitute the basis of a society. To-day he will examine the similar claims of the moralist that even economic relations should be based on ethical values, and meet it by the just distinction between goodness or rightness of purposes and cleverness or efficiency in the power of achieving them.

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.
