: LETTER FROM KYOTO

by D. J. Enright Kyoto, the cultural capital of Japan, is at the moment the centre of what Mr. Enright calls a ' cultural hubbub.' This hubbub, he explains, is the result of Germany, France, America, and England each reacting in characteristic fashion to the post-war Japanese enthusiasm for foreign culture.

: TALKING OF BOOKS

Philip Toynbee
The English have been described as a nation of travellers. After Napoleon's abdication in 1814, as in our own post-war period, large numbers of Englishmen took the opportunity of visiting the Continent once again. Among these travellers was the poet Samuel Rogers , whose recently discovered Italian Journal has been edited by J. R. Hale.

: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

Appeal on behalf of St. Martin-in-the-Fields' Christmas Fund by the Rev. Austen Williams
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to [address removed]
Every year the Vicar of St. Martin-in-the-Fields makes this Christmas appeal. It is an appeal by St. Martin's, but not an appeal for St. Martin's, for all the gifts received are distributed throughout the British Isles. Many people feel that Christmas is a time to make some personal gift to others who are in need through illness or misfortune, and for whom Christmas is a time of sadness rather than joy. The problem is how to find these people. St. Martin's knows them, knows where the need is greatest, and where the help is most required.

: Bernard Braden in ' SO LITTLE TIME'

A novel by John P. Marquand adapted as a serial in twelve parts by H. Oldfield Box
11—' Wonder 'spelt backwards'
Produced by Wilfrid Grantham
*
March 1941. And, as for many years past, Jeffrey Wilson has gone to Hollywood to doctor a film script for Hal Bliss. Marianna Miller is in Hollywood too, to star in the same picture. But Jeffrey has no intention of becoming involved in a love affair with her.
Later a telephone call from Madge in New York, telling him that Jim has enlisted, has entirely changed his attitude. Madge has deliberately encouraged Jim to enlist, taking advantage of Jeffrey's absence, so as to separate Jim from Sally Sales. Jeffrey determines to stay on in Hollywood, with Marianna, and try at last to write a play of his own.

: The Reith Lectures SCIENCE AND THE NATION

by Sir Edward Appleton ,
G.B.E., K.C.B., F.R.S.
6-Science and Education
In this last lecture Sir Edward Appleton discusses the more advanced training of the scientist by way of the alternative routes provided by technical colleges and universities. But, in either case, a specialist training is not enough; we must have regard to the development of the whole individual. The young scientist should learn to view his subject against the background of civilisation, past and present. But it is even more important that he should appreciate that science is limited as a guide to life itself: that it often offers a moral choice but itself provides no final guidance in choosing.

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.
