: Louis LEVY and his ORCHESTRA

From the Shepherd's Bush

: FOR SECONDARY SCHOOLS: Mr. DESMOND MAcCARTHY : ' Modern Men of Letters—III. Loo Tolstoy '

THE greatest of Russian authors has been called also the greatest of all novelists. His political activities, only really remarkable when considered in relation to his aristocratic birth and upbringing, have perhaps tended to interfere with unfeigned appreciation of his literary masterpieces, though lack of adequate translations is an equally great contributory cause.

' Should Married Women Work ? '
A Discussion between Dame BEATRIX LYALL ,
D.B.E., and Mrs. E. D. Simon
THE question to be dealt with in this, the third in the series of short discussions of ' Questions for Women Voters,' is one that is constantly arising nowadays and is always a subject of vehement controversy. The protagonists this evening are both women well known in public life. Dame Beatrix Lyall , who will support the view that married women should not take up paid employment, is a prominent member of the London County Council, and Mrs. Simon, who will argue that women should be free to choose for themselves, is one of the leading women speakers in the Liberal party, a strong and consistent feminist, and the wife of one of Manchester's leading citizens and its former Lord Mayor.

: Professor B. IFOR EVANS: Nineteenth century Novelists-V. George Meredith.' S.B. from Sheffield

THIS evening Professor Evans comes to a novelist admittedly difficult of complete understanding. George Meredith suffers nowadays from a tendency towards ' unreadability ' ; he requires great concentration from the reader if he is to be appreciated properly. Professor Evans shows how in his early novels Meredith displays the great variety of his work, and discusses his idea of comedy both in his novels and in his philosophy.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
