Dr. C. DELISLE BURNS , D.Litt. (Stevenson Lecturer in' Citizenship in the University 'of Glasgow) : ' The Youth of Today'
DR. DELISLE BURNS continues his twelve-talk review of the social changes of the last three decades with an account of the differences between the young of today and their parents thirty years ago. Last week he talked about the new spirit symbolized by the Scout ' and ' Guide ' movement for boys and girls, a movement which is independent of tho older educational movements. There is a similar spirit abroad amongst the young men and women of today. ' Youth Movements ' exist in many countries, consciously and elaborately organized attempts of the young to secure a greater naturalness and freedom for themselves. These organiza- . tions do hot exist in every country : there is no international movement like tho Scouts and Guides. But the same spirit is abroad in young people of every country, ' young ' meaning, say, ' between the ages of eighteen and twenty-five.' The young today are making their own experiments and not taking the authority of their elders for granted. Dr. Delisle Burns will describe the various Youth Movements and consider the question as a whole, and will deal sensibly with the phrase 'revolt of youth,' about which so much nonaenso has been talked.

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.
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.
