: Can Democracy Survive?: X: Patching

The Rt. Hon. Lord Eustace Percy
Tonight Lord Eustace Percy discusses the first of two alternative remedies for the political and economic deadlock of today. The social ideals of the nineteenth century have been discredited by recent experience: can we make a fresh start? Modern society is weak in initiative. The organizations built up during the era of the pursuit of wealth are rigid in structure. Limited liability companies, trade unions, and political parties are all instances of over-organization threatening mental petrifaction. Present-day polities consist of continual attempts to patch up temporary compromises between rigidly organized interests. The League of Nations is an example of the same sort of effort at compromise in international affairs. Is this the way to solve present problems? Next week Lord Eustace Percy discusses the possibility of scrapping the whole system of present-day politics.

: ' What I would do with the World '—IX

The Very Rev. W. R. INGE , K.C.V.O., D.D.,
Dean of St. Paul's
DEAN INGE'S talk in this series was originally arranged for October 15, but the stress of the election period made it necessary to postpone it. Dean Inge is a modern representative of the Church, and a philosopher whose views on the world in general are of widespread interest. His three previous talks-in the ' Points of View ' series two years ago, in the ' Science and Religion ' series last December, and his intro-duct ion last month to the current ' Modern Dilemma ' series—have all shown him to be a brilliant broadcaster. He is well known to the general public as a controversial journalist of decided and individual opinions and an excellent preacher ; he was Professor of Divinity at Cam-bridge from 1907-11, and is an authority on mysticism. His best-known books, ' England ' and ' Lay Thoughts of a Dean,' were published in 1926.

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.
