: ARE THERE ETERNAL TRUTHS?

Talk by Sir Edmund Whittaker, F.R.S .
Emeritus Professor of Mathematics in the University of Edinburgh
Sir Edmund Whi-ttaker's distinguished Eddington Memorial Lecture, which was broadcast in the Third Programme, aroused great interest even among those who found the mathematical side of the arguments difficult to follow.
In this talk, which explores the same ground from a somewhat different point of view, Sir Edmund Whittaker analyses the basis of the belief that it is possible for science to arrive at eternal truth.

: THE THURSDAY CONCERT

Kathleen Joyce (contralto)
Frederick Stone (accompanist) Rubbra-Gruenberg-Pleeth Trio:
Erich Gruenberg (violin)
William Pleeth (cello)
Edmund Rubbra (piano)
Schubert's two piano trios were both written in 1827, a year before he died. No. 2 in E flat was performed in March, 1828, at the only public concert of Schubert's music given in his lifetime, in the hall of the Austrian Philharmonic Society. Vienna. Larger in scale and more heroic in mood than the more popular Trio in B flat, it was described by Schumann as ' an angry meteor which blazed forth and outshone everything else ,n the musical atmosphere of the time ' There are four movements: the sombre march-like theme of the slow movement (which is said to be that of a Swedish folk-song) recurs, with magical effect towards the end of the finale.

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.
