The Last Movement is bold and full of nervous energy.

: Professor HAROLD J. LASKI: Social Purpose No. III, The Importance of Government'

WE live in a big world about which, at our peril, we have to find our way. And we find our way in so far as the mechanisms of society make increasingly possible, for an increasing number of people, a response to their desires. Every part of our social system—its religions, its way of holding property, its method of government-is an attempt to this end. Since it is Government that ultimately controls all the mechanisms, it is fundamentally important in social theory to understand its nature. These are the points that Professor Laski will make in his third talk.

Personally conducted by JACK PAYNE

: A DEBATE

between
Sir ERNEST BENN and Mr. JAMES MAXTON , M.P.
' Riches and Poverty-Are They Necessary?’
N° more interesting spokesmen of two contrasted social theories could be found to debate this vital subject than Sir Ernest Benn , the publisher, author of ' The Confessions of a Capitalist,' and the leading spirit of the Individualist Bookshop, and Mr James Maxton , the chairman of the Independent Labour Party. and the most prominent of the group of Clydeside Socialists who came into Parliament in 1922. They have, in addition, met on more than one occasion in platform debates, and they are therefore all the better fitted to undertake the difficult task of debating before the microphone.

Suite, ' Famous Beauties '
PERCY FLETCHER , well known for many years as Conductor at His Majesty's Theatre, is largely a self-taught musician. He is best known, perhaps, for his incidental music to spectacular plays, such as Cairo, produced at His Majesty's.
He has written four Orchestral
Suites and a good many popular Choral pieces, besides some Pianoforte and Chamber Music.
He is one of the few composers of today who have written large-scale works for the Brass Band. His Epic Symphony was written as the test-piece for the chief competition at the annual Brass Band Festival at the Crystal Palace.
His Suite Famous Beauties, contains three pieces, thus entitled : (1) A Vision of Aphrodite ; (2) In the Palace of Old Versailles; (3) At the Court of Cleopatra.

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.
