Lady Kennet, the widow of Captain Scott, married Lord Kennet in 1922, when he was Sir Edward Hilton Young. She is a sculptor whose work is known all over the world. The memorials to Captain Scott in Waterloo Place, to Lord Northcliffe in Fleet Street, and to Adam Lindsay Gordon in Westminster Abbey are only three examples of the important public monuments she has made. She has also been responsible for busts of Mr. Asquith, which can be seen in the Tate Gallery, and of Mr. Lloyd George, which is now in the War Museum, and her other subjects include celebrities like Bernard Shaw, Galsworthy, Colonel Lawrence, and Nansen. Her son, Peter Scott, is also an artist, who has specialised in bird studies.

Professor Walter Gropius interviewed by E. Maxwell Fry.
Professor Gropius, the distinguished German architect, who has been working in this country for the last two and a half years, has just been appointed to the Chair of Architecture at Harvard University. His influence on modern architecture in Europe has been very great and his presence in England has stimulated and encouraged many of our younger architects. Very shortly, before he sails for America, he is being given a farewell dinner by his colleagues.
E. Maxwell Fry, who is to interview Professor Gropius, is an architect of great reputation. Radio listeners will remember that last November he began a series of six talks on town planning in Northern Ireland.

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.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and

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.
