: 'THE ARTIST IN THE WITNESS BOX'

I-Introduction
Eric Newton and Herbert Hodge
This is the first of twelve talks in which, week by week, aspects of art will be examined under the eye of Eric Newton by leading exponents of the various branches of art. The series was already announced and in active preparation when war broke out, but was inevitably postponed during the first period of re-arrangement
No one is better fitted to represent the viewpoint on art of the man in the street than Herbert Hodge , who muses upon life, books, pictures and the passer-by from his seat on the cab rank puts his thoughts into books and expresses them so well at the microphone.
Today he will take part in a discussion with Newton.
In the next three broadcasts Newton, whose many previous talks on art topks will be remembered, will talk about artists in general.
During the New Year he will be at the microphone for discussion with a wide selection of people from the art world. ,
An excellently illustrated pamphlet with which the broadcasts can be followed is obtainable from the BBC or from booksellers, price one shilling (post free).

: TONIGHT'S TALK

' What Are We Fighting For ? '
The Rt. Hon. Herbert Morrison , M.P.
Members of the Opposition parties to have broadcast their views on the war have been the Right. Hon. Arthur Greenwood and Sir Archibald Sinclair , and the Rt. Hon. C. G. Attlee has spoken on the peace aims of the Labour party. Tonight it is the turn of the Rt. Hon. Herbert Stanley Morrison. He will broadcast not as Leader of the London County Council, the office with which he is nowadays most prominently associated in the public eye, but as a leading member of His Majesty's Opposition.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.
