: ' The Enjoyment of Novels '

Mr. L. A. G. STRONG
At a time when many listeners must be searching the shelves for ' something light' with which to ballast the holiday suitcase, Mr. Strong's likes in fiction may prove useful as well as entertaining. This week he talks about novels dealing with social conditions, a source of inspiration to many enjoyable writers besides Dickens, Galsworthy and Bennett.

: FESTIVAL OF MUSIC AND DRAMA

Organised by the Friends of Canterbury Cathedral
AN ORCHESTRAL CONCERT held in the Cathedral, Canterbury
Relayed from Canterbury Cathedral
Since its first performance as a ballet, by the Camargo Ballet Society in 1931, Vaughan Williams 's musical interpretation of William Blake 's remarkable series of pictures of The Hook of Job has come to be recognised as one of the finest of the composer's works, and, in its rigid adherence to the spirit of Blake, combined with the complete independence of expression wa have come to expect of Vaughan Williams , accepted as a master work of British music. It has been well remarked that the artistic visions both of Blake and Vaughan Williams have a great deal in common, though their periods are separated by a century of intervening development in art. To quote from a recent article in The Radio Times : 'They are strong men careless of critics and contemporaries, belonging to no " school "... To each his own work is deeply significant, and it is conceived-as such work should be conceived-with pain and ecstasy. It is not highly finished work; it bears still the mark of the chisel, and herein lies some of its strength and individuality. These are men alien to their periods, yet belonging to no other.'

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.
