: Some Political Ideas of Today: Imperialism

Sir Edward Grigg, K.C.M.G., K.C.V.O., and Mr Kingsley Martin.
This discussion will inevitably range round the theory and practice of the British Empire, the outstanding example of Imperialism in the modern world. This Empire, acquired, in Sir John Seely's phrase, 'in fits of absence of mind,' has developed into the British Commonwealth of Nations, justifying its existence in the interests of the governed, with the ultimate aim of becoming a free association of self-governing sovereign States. Sir Edward Grigg, an exponent of the Milner school of Imperialism, has wide experience of Imperial conditions and affairs; he was Military Secretary to the Prince of Wales on visits to Canada, Australia and New Zealand; for three years Secretary to the Rhodes Trustees, and, from 1925 to 1931 Governor and Commander-in-Chief, Kenya Colony. His opponent, Mr. Kingsley Martin, will be remembered for his four vigorous talks on the Press in The Changing World series in January, 1932; he is Editor of the independent Socialist weekly, The New Statesman, a former lecturer in history and political science at Cambridge and the London School of Economics, and an acute critic of Imperial administration.

f The B.B.C. ORCHESTRA
(Section E)
(Led by MARIE WILSON )'
Conducted by VICTOR HELY-HUTCHINSON
There is only one thing really wrong with this piece of music, and that is one entirely misleading detail of its presentation. Let us look at it from another, not altogether imaginary point of view. Suppose an eighteenth century C. B. Cochran to have been in charge of the entertainment side of a kind of Viennese Trocadero and to have had under contract a brilliant young man whom he could count on to entertain his public as acceptably as today does, say, Noel Coward in another manner. This particular Herr Cochran would have made it clear to his patrons that solely for their entertainment he had commissioned young Mozart to compose yet another of his fascinating numbers to divert them while they ate, drank and amused themselves after the day's work. This is not at all an absurd supposition, and if listeners will persuade themselves that it is for the next hour still more or less the fact, they need pay no attention whatever to the academic Jabel which serves only to identify a sequence of the jolliest tunes imaginable.

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.

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