: 'Life as I see it'

THE MARCHroNESs OF READING
THIS IS THE first broadcast of a new series of talks, or reflections, on life and men and affairs, on women and homes and happiness, on obligations. Individuality of view, the experience that comes from being alive and noticing (for one can be alive and notice nothing) will colour Lady Reading's talks at the microphone. She has been everywhere, done everything, seen everything. From 1921 to 1926, she was in India on the Viceregal Staff of the Marquis of Reading, whom she married in 1931. But Lady Reading is speaking not only as the wife of a famous man, but as a woman who is Chairman of the Personal Service League. She is working actively every day for the unemployed, controlling the collecting, remaking, and distributing of clothes for those in dire need of them. Her wit has sympathy behind it; her opinions carry weight; she puts precept into practice.

The Navy Yesterday and Today
The Navy Before the Great War (B) in Peace
Admiral Sir HERBERT W. RICHMOND,
K.C.B.
THIS EVENING'S TALK will deal with the Navy before the Great War-in peace. Admiral Sir Herbert W. Richmond will survey the whole question of what the Navy had to do, the purpose it served by way of police and public duties. He will deal with the growth and development of the Navy from the time of Waterloo; the invention of the ironclad, and of the submarine ; the reason for the Two-power Standard and its meaning ; the rise and menace of the German Navy, and the effect it had on the size and cost of our own. In this way he will prepare the ground for his next broadcast on January 24, on the Navy in and after the Great War.

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.
