Mr. BONAMY DOBRÉE , O.B.E.
For the next three months Mr. Dobrée will alternate with Mr. R. Ellis Roberts in broadcast criticism of new books. The now critic is a delightful writer and talker, known most widely as the author of Restoration Comedy.
Commander STEPHEN KING-HALL and Mr. N. F. HALL (Head of tfie Department of Economics, University College, London)
The economic crisis has driven everyone into discussion of its causes, seeking the reason why jobs are scarce, wages low, and prices high. Commander King-Hall, armed with listeners' questions, bombards an economist before the microphone. The putting and answering of these questions leads beyond economics to an inquiry into the basic assumptions of the modern way of life, and these exchanges between economic witness and ' counsel for the public ' should provide thoughtful as well as lively broadcasting.
Mr. N. F.
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.
