: Programme Summary; followed by: The Pattern of 1936

A review of trade, unemployment, etc., in the form of a discussion between John Hilton and Cecil Lewis.

Nearly five years ago John Hilton, Professor of Industrial Relations at Cambridge University, helped to form a club for the unemployed, Fellowship House. The members are the keenest critics of his weekly broadcast talks. Few men can better understand the outlook of the unemployed; and few men have done more than he to cheer them up. As a listener once wrote in a letter to him, he has "happy knack of making life seem extra good".
In this interview with Cecil Lewis, Professor Hilton will show, with charts and figures, the probable trend of unemployment during the coming year. He will answer such questions as "What will the reduction amount to?"; "In what industries and places is improvement experienced?"; "Will the Depressed Areas remain so as the boom develops?"; and "How much has the armaments boom contributed to improvement?".

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.
