Dr. C. DELISLE BURNS , D.Litt. (Stevenson Lecturer , in Citizenship in the University of Glasgow): The Woman's Movement'
(From. Glasgow)
LAST week Dr. Delisle Burns reviewed the changes in conventions that the last thirty years have produced. In his talk this evening he outlines the history of the Woman's Movement, a primary cause of those changes. Modern conditions have caused women to form definite organizations for specific purposes. Women's Institutes are signs of the times. All over the world, indeed, women are playing a larger part in public affairs.

: The B.B.C. Orchestra

(Section E)
Conducted by B. WALTON O'DONNELL
NEWTON LEES (Baritone)
F this once popular opera of Auber, one of the best of all
Opera Comique composers, only the Overture is now played. There are four bars of stirring prelude, and then the clarinet has a wistful little tune which the woodwinds and strings together carry on. That is followed by a broad melody for strings and horns, repeated by the whole orchestra, and then a more vivacious movement follows with two light-hearted tunes alternating one with the other. They are interrupted more than once by a tender melody played first by strings and woodwinds together, but the mood of the Overture grows in energy to finish on the whole strength of the orchestra.

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.
