: Temperance Work Today

Talk by the Rev. T. G. Dunning, Ph.D., General Secretary of the Temperance Council of the Christian Churches.
The Churches have long been dissatisfied with the old methods of temperance work and have recently done a good deal of thinking about new methods. Among recent attempts was the calling of a standing conference of Denominational Youth Leaders and members of the Temperance Council of the Christian Churches' Executive. Examining the needs of the time, they drew up a four-point policy. This statement marks a new beginning in temperance work. Dr. Dunning talks about these four points and the place of temperance work in the modern world.

by Geoffrey Moore

He returned to England in rhe hope of clarifying his feelings towards both countries, and in this talk he describes what he found in America.

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.

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