: Mr. A. G. STREET: ' Not exactly Idle Thoughts'

MR. STREET'S ' Idle Thoughts ' have for long been one of the most popular broadcast features with country listeners. This week, Mr. Street introduces a new series of autumn farming talks by experts by summarizing the many grave problems with which agriculture is beset. The talks that follow will explain adopted or prospective Government measures, the results of the latest experiments in food distribution, and in general give farmers a service of expert information that aims at being really practical and useful.

: ' THE LAW OF THE LAND '—II

The Right Hon. Lord MACMILLAN: ' What the Law is—11, The Sources of the Law '
T ORD MACMILLAN gives his second talk on the general philosophical and historical background of the law. After defining last week the law as the science and art of human relations, he turns to its sources. Law is derived from custom, from the decisions of judges, from legal commentators, and from legislation. It is the complex of rules by which society has agreed to live. Intelligent discussion, observance, or attempts at reform can only be based on knowledge of the sources, and for the first time in the history of broadcasting a great legal authority has come to the microphone to give a clear statement of the theory and practice of the law in this country.

: ' The White Blackbird'

By LENNOX ROBINSON
'THE White Blackbird ' closely follows the successful broadcasts of the same author's
' The Clancy Name ' and ' The Round Table.' Lennox Robinson 's intelligent dialogue, acute characterization, and quiet, thoughtful type of social comedy make his work peculiarly suitable for broadcasting, as effective in its way as that of Oscar Wilde has proved in ita own vein. ' The White Blackbird ' is described as an 'ironic tragedy,' but although, as in all his plays, there is no facile use of Irish idiom and local colour, comedy remains in spite of this description. The action revolves around the unsuccessful attempts Qf a strong, silent man to cope with a feckless family. He is the ' white blackbird.' of the play's paradoxical title, ' neither white nor black, rather dirty-looking ... always alone and always awfully busy.'.

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.
