: Mr. GEORGE F. ALLISON: The Cup Tie : Next Saturday's Semi-Finals'

This season's Cup Ties have been remarkable for the early elimination of the highly-placod and most-favoured clubs, and the persistent survival of the lesser lights of the game. Mr. Allison sums up the chances of the last four survivors in the last stage but one of the great football tournament. A Running Commentary on the Final at Wembley will be broadcast.

: Music-Hall

New and old stars of the ' Halls' glitter in tonight's bill. Memories of the past will be stirred by Gus Elen , the veteran coster comedian, and by Marie Lloyd Jnr. , singing the songs of her mother—the greatest music-hall artist of them all. The New Trix Sisters, original Josephine and new Helen, successfully revive a popular duet act. George Lacy , a grand comedian with a style of his own, comes fresh to the microphone from his 'Dame' triumphs in Daly's Mother Goose pantomime. Leslie Sarony has no rival in writing or singing the nonsense songs of jazz. Laddie Cliff and Phyllis Monkman are so versatile there's no telling what they'll do, but. ' Co-Optimist ' memories are sure to be revived. -Mussi, a new-comer, is the ' mystery-turn ' of trie programme.

: ' SHOULD THEY BE SCRAPPED?'

Should the Public Schools be Abolished ?
A Discussion between BERTRAND RUSSELL and Dr. ALINGTON
This debate may solve a thorny problem that has perplexed the nation for too long. Before the Public Schools can be scrapped they must be denned. If they are to be scrapped, it is likely that the sale of the more distinguished old school ties will drop suddenly, and that there will bo a rush of institutions to disclaim a title they had' eagerly sought. Public schools have been praised for their character-training, physical training, decency, and indefinable something ' : they have been abused for their snobbishness, deification of the athlete, corruption, and complete failure to educate. Tonight, the Head-master of Eton defends the "system of which he is so distinguished an ornament against Bertrand Rusell , one of the most radical and practical educational reformers of today.

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.
