Mr. G. K. CHESTERTON
Mr. G. K. Chesterton 'arrived' as a broadcasting personality at the first attempt. His voice, vigour, and intimate methods give an impression of one man talking confidentially to another about books. His independence, too, in a literary world overloaded with partisan cliques, gives the common reader' assurance of unfettered comment on the books of the hour.

: ' Our Debt to the Past '—X

Professor NORMAN BAYNES , F.B.A. (Professor of Byzantine History in the University of London): ' The End of the Ancient World—The Christian Empire and the Christian Church.'
Previous talks have outlined the legacies of Greece, Rome and Judea to the modern world. Tonight Professor Baynes describes how these traditions were fused in the Christian Roman Empire of Constantino the Great, and the ideal of the unity of the Roman world transmitted to us through the Middle Ages. The Roman Empire passed, but its ideal of universalism survived through the Christian Church. It is a fascinating story for all who know the importance of the past in the life of the present.

: To an Un-named Listener —VII

Mr. Evelyn Waugh: To an Old Man
Mr. Evelyn Waugh has rapidly* achieved a reputation as a savage satirist of the bright and young. Tonight he turns his attentions to a representative of the duller and older generation, happily un-named. The result should be invigorating.

: 'Family Tree'

By PHILIP WADE
Philip Wade is the author of two previously-performed radio plays, Boss and Oranges and Lemons, and a well-known and experienced radio actor. Family Tree is a drama of traditional loyalties. Newby Hall has belonged to the Ebbworths for three hundred years. Its stones, trees, gardens, servants have achieved a communal being, until the owners feel, far from the place belonging to them, that they belong to it. We glimpse the state of the house and the family at three periods, 1911, 1921 and 1931. Financial stress brings unwelcome sales; then Newby is let furnished ; at last, it is sold by auction. The individual drama of the characters is well worked out, but the author is chiefly concerned with the fortunes of the house and estate, symbolised in the play by a magnificent vine.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
