' Should Blood Sports be Abolished ? ' a Discussion between the Countess of Oxford AND ASQUITH and Air Vice-Commodore
L. E. O. CHARLTON
Talks arranged for 9.20 on Saturdays have a big reputation to live up to. The Saturday series are always chosen for their ' popular' quality, since Saturday's broadcasting attracts perhaps the largest audience of the week. Series to date have included ' Hazard,' ‘Escape,’ ‘ Consider your Verdict,' and a number of talks by the late Edgar Wallace. The title ' Should they be Scrapped ? ' will cover a series of frank and hard-hitting debates on questions of the day. Following tonight's discussion on Blood Sports, there will be discussions on Advertising, Betting, Death Duties, Night Clubs, and Scientific Research.

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.
