IN this period, each Thursday, thero will be broadcast the various notices of general application which, though not strictly news of the day, have hitherto been included in the General News Bulletins.
The B.B.C. does not broadcast private notices or publicity for matters not of national inportance, but an exception has for some time past been made in favour of the Annual Reunions of the larger Service units, particularly in cases where old comrades cannot otherwise be communicated with owing to the absence of addresses. These
Reunion notices will now be given in this period, together with the various general notices connected with Government and other Public Services, such as Postal Arrangements, Civil Service examinations and Regulations which are of concern to the general public.
Postal, Traffic and other similar notices of purely local application will continue to be included in the various Regional and Local News Bulletins.

: ' Can Democracy Survive ? '

-XII Tho Rt. Hon. Lord EUSTACE PERCY : ' Our Problem Today '
LORD EUSTACE PERCY concludes tonight the series on democracy which he and Mr. Leonard Woolf have shared.
Last week he pointed out that, a common element in experiments of the kind of Fascism and Communism is the conception that citizenship involves certain definite sacrifices. The supremo question of the present day is whether a nation can revive this conception of sacrifice without abandoning the British tradition of representative government. Tho British citizen has different responsibilities in home, imperial, and international affairs today as compared with those ho had in 1900. How can political, social, and economic organization he adapted to discharge these responsibilities ? On January 7, Lady Passfield (Mrs. Sidney Webb) gives the first of threo talks on ' The Diseases of Organized Society,' which servo as a preliminary basis for talks on Parliamentary and world Government by Professor W. G. S. Adams and Sir Arthur Salter respectively.

WILLIAM PRIMROSE (Viola)
THE WIRELESS SINGERS
Conductor, STANFORD ROBINSON
IN the latter part of the fifteenth century the French Chanson had an influence on the music of the whole of Europe, which could not easily be exaggerated. But France, as its frontiers define it today, cannot claim the whole credit; there was then no real dividing line between Northern French and Flemish music, and the precise historian of tho period is careful to speak of the Gallo-Belgian school. Its chansons had a tremendous vogue, and many of them found their way into print, not only in France, but in Antwerp and Louvain, and even as far from home as Nuremberg and Venice. They began, too, quite early in the following century to have a big influence on instrumental music ; many were adapted as pieces for the lute, or for keyboard instruments.' As listeners will hear in these examples, their gaiety and unaffected grace are easily recognizable as foreshadowing the qualities which the rest of the world has ever since thought of as distinctively French.

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.
