' Housing-The Last Decade and the Next.
An Explanation of the Present Position
By Captain R. L. REISS
Broadcasting tackles a fundamental social problem in this series of particularised reports on housing conditions in different parts of the country. In spite of enormous building activity tince the war, slums and overcrowding are rife. Mr. Howard Marshall , who opened the series with his talk last week, is to travel about the country investigating housing conditions, and he will report once a fortnight; and in the intervening weeks there will be discussions of various aspects of the problem. Captain Reiss, who reviews the position in tonight's talk, is a well known authority on housing, and a member of the Housing Committee of the L.C.C.

A census of composers would reveal a considerable number who claim, or of whom it is claimed, that they are self-taught-a curious phrase which cannot, of course, mean exactly what it says. However, Ernst Toch is described as a self-taught musician who profited so by this instruction that, in his twenties, he carried off not only the famous Mozart and Mendelssohn Exhibitions, but won the annual Austrian State
Prize for Composition on four separate occasions. Toch was born in Vienna in 1887. Today he is known as a distinguished teacher and a composer of some highly individual chamber music. Ha has written also for the orchestra and the stage.

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.
