Dr. C. DELISLE BURNS , D.Litt. (Stevenson Lecturer in Citizenship in the University of Glasgow): Conventions and Modernity '
DR. DELISLE BURNS continues his review of the changes in social life in the last thirty years, with a reasoned analysis of what will seem to many the most outstanding change of all. Conventions today seem very different from what they were last century. The position of children has altered.- Are the standards of conduct for ' Mrs. Brown ' being provided by ' Mrs. Smith ' to the extent that they were ? Are we being standardized or revolutionized ? Next week Dr. Burns goes on to discuss one of the chief factors in the changes of convention-the Woman's Movement.

A BRILLIANT student of the Royal
Academy of Music, where his principal instrument was the viola, Eric Coates soon found himself in the front rank of players, and was for some years principal viola of the Queen's
Hall Orchestra. He was a distinguished chamber music player, too. While still a member of tho Queen's Hall Orchestra, he had a good deal of his own orchestral music produced at its Promenade and other concerts. Since 1919 he has practically given up playing, and has devoted himself to composition. Much of his music is in lighthearted vein, graceful and melodious, and all marked by thoroughly sound workmanship and mastery of the resources of the orchestra. The names of his best known
Suites indicate quite clearly the direction in which he is happiest - the Countryside, Summer Days, Wood Nymphs , The Merrymakers : his music does indeed illustrate in a fresh and wholesome way the sunnier aspects of the world.
He has been no less successful as a song composer, and in that direction, too, his name is well and honourably known to listeners.

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.
