Edited and introduced by James Fisher
Great Crested Grebes
Discussion by Arnold Boyd

These long-necked, exotic-looking birds are a familiar sight on lakes and reservoirs for many months of the year. In 1860 there were fewer than fifty pairs known to breed in Britain. Their recovery in numbers and their curious display ceremonies are the subject of today's discussion.

: GIRL IN THE GALLERY

by Mary Chubb
Miss Chubb's theatre-going started disastrously at the age of four in the Dress Circle, but she remembers with more pleasure visits to the Gallery in the 1920s, particularly to those musical comedies and plays with music that caught her fancy, such as The Beggar's Opera, a D'Oyly Carte season, and some shows in which Jack Buchanan was the star.

: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

Appeal on behalf of the Ranyard Mission by the Chairman, Redford Crosfield Harris
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to Redford Crosfield Harris, Esq., [address removed]
The Ranyard Mission celebrates this year the centenary of its foundation by Ellen Ranyard , a pioneer in religious social service. Her conception of combining physical care with Christian teaching led to the formation of the Ranyard Nurses, which now operates-under the aegis of the London County Council-a modern district nursing service covering one-fifth of the Administrative County of London. Voluntary contributions are urgently needed to enable the Mission to continue its two-fold ministry of healing and to provide it with adequate headquarters.

from John Galsworthy 's
' A Modern Comedy ' freely adapted for broadcasting by Muriel Levy
PART 2
Production by Robin Midgley and Val Gielgud
Soames Forsyte , the Man of Property, recalls the past and his unavailing struggle to hold his first wife, Irene. Now he is almost as possessive about his daughter Fleur, who is married to Michael Mont while her heart is still very much with her former love, Jon Forsyte , son of Irene and Jolyon.
Fleur is a modern product and a ' collector ' of people, including Wilfred Desert. Although Soames's time is taken up with business headaches he is never too busy to keep one eye on Fleur.

: The Reith Lectures: Russia, the Atom and the West: 5: The Non-European World

by George F. Kennan, Professor of History at the Institute for Advanced Study, N.J. Princeton
There are certain conditions in the non-European world which, says Mr. Kennan, favour the expansion of Russian influence. The best way to counteract this influence is by clarifying the Western attitude to the under-developed countries and recovering the dignity of the Western position.
Next Sunday: Anglo-American Relations
These Lectures are being printed in The Listener.

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.
