: 'THREE MEN AND A PARSON'

First of a series of discussions in which three men ask a parson some of the questions that are in many people's minds these days
Tonight, and for the next three nights at this time, three men-a working man, once a miner, then unemployed for nine years and now a postman ; an employer in the engineering trade ; and a young man recently a student at Oxford-are to ask a parson some of the questions that are puzzling so many today.
The three laymen are greatly impressed by the spirit of endurance shown today ; but, like a number of others, they are wondering what is going to happen when the war is over, and whether the Church has anything useful to say about it. They will state their difficulties frankly and without reserve, and the parson, Canon F. A. Cockin , will give as honest an answer to their questions as he can.
Further details will be found in the article by Dr. J. W. Welch on page 3.

Leader, Paul Beard
Conductor, Sir Adrian Boult
Mozart, who died on December 5, 1791, dated the first page of the Requiem 1792. This, which at first strikes us as a slip, may be correct after all, if at the time when he lay in his unmarked grave his Requiem, was being written down by his pupil Sussmayer, from instructions given before his death. It is almost established that Sussmayer did not finish the Requiem himself, as it used to be thought.
Whoever was ultimately responsible for its final form, it is a great and inspiring work.

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.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
