AS readers of The Radio Times know, Mr. Scholes has recently been on a visit to the United States, where he addressed the Biennial Conference of Music Teachersâ€”3,500 of them-at a vast breakfast party in Chicago. The extraordinary vitality of, and keenness for, music that he found in America has vastly impressed Mr. Scholes, and, as he informs us by cablegram, he will recount his interesting experiences in this, his first talk since his return.
Why Government is necessary '
G OVERNMENT of some kind is necessary, for men move differently to the atainment of opposed desires. It is therefore necessary to maintain certain standards of conduct in the interests of peace. These rules make possible the life we know. They secure our health, our physical safety, our educational standards. But because the rules are the creation of experience it follows that we are in a large degree the creatures of the past. How far it is possible to change standards of conduct in the course of a generation Professor Laski will discuss in the second of his series of talks.
Listeners who want to follow up the subject are recommended to read some of the following books: ' The Great Society,' by Graham Wallas (Macmillan) ; ' A Grammar of Politics,' by H. J. Laski (Allen and Unwin); ' Social Theory,' by G. D. H. Cole (Methuen); 'The Modem State,' by R. M. Maciver ; and ' Introduction to Modern Political Theory,' by C. E. M. Joad (Oxford University Press); ' Liberty and Authority,' by Lord Hugh Cecil (Arnold), and ' Elements of Social Justice,' by L. T. Hobhouse (Allen and Unwin).
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.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
