: 'THE CHILD'S WORLD'

Mrs. LETTICE RAMSEY 'Real Life and Make-belief '
EVERY child loves 'pretending' : and this, like all its activities, is useful to its development. Make-belief gives the child an outlet for its feelings which it might not have in real life, and thus makes its adjustment to real life easier. Also it can exercise its ingenuity and imagination in this pretence world.
A normal child does not mix up the real world with the pretence world, if care is taken ; he must not be led to think that fairy stories are real. Mrs.
Ramsey will explain all this, with examples, and give suggestions on how to foster the pretending ' instinct in children in the best way.

: ' Can Democracy Survive?'—II

Mr. Leonard Woo1f
Have we a. Right to Happiness, and are we becoming Happier ?
THE early democrats said that everybody had an equal right to happiness, and that to promote this right was the tirst duty of a Government. However reasonable this may seem, it was a new idea when it was promulgated, and is clearly beset with pitfalls now. Mr. Leonard Woolf this evening will compare, firstly, Government provision for happiness, and secondly, actual enjoyment of happiness in various classes of the population in 1900 and in 1931. From the point of view of obtaining happiness, the question of occupying leisure time arises. Next week Mr. Woolf will discuss whether everyone really ought to bo treated as equal.

: A Recital

by MARIAN ANDERSON (Contralto)
LIKE her fellow-artist, Paul Robeson ,
Marian Anderson was born to a heritage of such singing as originally inspired the ' Spirituals ' ; and where others have recourse to ' interpreta tion,' she has but to call upon her instinct. And, again like Robeson, this instinct carries Miss Anderson smoothly into the difficult field of lieder-singing, and again she triumphs. It is when we are privileged to hear such artists as Mr. Robeson and Miss Anderson that it is most strongly borne upon us how slanderous it is to attribute to the same source as the 'Spirituals' that item of American exports known to ' Boachcomber ' and his readers as swarnpstuff.'

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.

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.
