Over Mount Everest'
Lt.-Col. Blacker was a pilot of one of the aeroplanes of the Houston Mount Everest Expedition.

: English Literature-II

Readings from Shakespeare-1,
'Macbeth'
This term's course in English Literature falls into three sections. An informal series on 'Some
Books I like,' by Howard Mar shall, that includes such joyous reading as ' King Solomon's Mines ' and ' Tom Sawyer ,' takes turns with three talks by the Head Master of Rugby on ' Delight in Poetry,' and with three readings from Shakespeare of which the first is heard today. Thesenew arrangements have been made at the request of a large number of schools. Their aim is to stimulate the interest of children in books, poetry and the drama, with readings by speakers able to communicate their own personal enjoyment of what they read. It is suggested that teachers should ensure that copies of the books, the text of poems, and the story of plays from which extracts are read, should be made available to listening pupils.

: Sir WILLIAM BRAGG, O.M., K.B.E., F.R.S., introducing the series on Scientific Research

Sir William Bragg is Director of the Royal Institution and of the Davy-Faraday Research Laboratory. He first broadcast in 1926. and in March, 1931, he gave a National Lecture on Michael Faraday , at the time" of the Faraday Centenary Celebrations. He demonstrates afresh his belief in broadcasting as an important Agent for the spread of scientific knowledge by introducing tonight this new series in the ' Taking Stock' group of autumn talks. The series is in the hands of Mr. Julian Huxley. Its objet is to give an account of scientific research as it is affecting the social needs of the community. The talks will concentrate on the efforts of the scientists to provide better and more abundant food, improved buildings and roads, better industrial methods, and to arouse new attitudes to such social questions as education and the treatment of the criminal. The series opens next week with a conversation in which Professor H. Levy will discuss with Mr. Huxley the objects of the survey.

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.
