: ' The Growth of the Child '—in. Dr. C. W. SALEEBY : " Health and Exercise " '

DR. C. W. SALEEBY , whose name has become allied in the public mind with the advocacy of ' Sunlight means Health,' and who is Chairman of the Sunlight League, will continue the series of talks on ' The Growth of the Child,' with some simple advice on ' 'Health and Exercise.' It may be true that America pays far more heed to these things than we do, but tho implied criticism is increasingly less true; and Dr. Saleeby's talk will probably convert many more to tho gospel of good health.

THE Baroness Margareta Palm stierna, who is daughter of the Swedish Minister, will give listeners an intjnate account of Lfe and customs in her native country, Sweden.

: Dr. LIONEL GILES: 'China — III, Historical and Political Development'

THIS contribution to the series of talks on China deals with the historical and political development, from the mythical and legendary periods of Chinese history to the unification of China under the First Emperor and tho stability under the Han dynasty. As interpreter to this difficult and (to Western minds) sometimes fantastic history, Dr. Lionel Giles is an admirable choice, since he is Deputy Keeper of Oriental Printed Books and MSS. in the British Museum and the author of ' Sun Tzu on the Art of War' and other translations of the Chinese Classics.

: JACK HULBERT

(The Famous Revue Artist)
THE London theatre is at present the loser by the absence of Jack Hulbert who, however, is maturing a new show for production in the West End. He is one of the most energetic people alive. Not only does he play in protean fashion
. a large part in the shows he presents, but he acts as producer and also arranges and rehearses the dances. Tonight we are to have a proof of only one of his many talents-as a light comedian. It was in this rolo that Robert Courtneidge saw him before the war in a London matinee of a musical play performed by the Cambridge Foot-lights Club-and as a light comedian London has known him ever since. In Lido Lady we saw him as an incorrigible ne'er-do-well who ' didn't mind going to work to work and didn't mind coming back-it was the little bit in between he didn't like.'
In Clowns in Clover he was chief clown and owner of that prodigious greyhound ' Sarsaparilla Bodkin.'
There may be an echo of these past successes in his programme tonight.

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.
