' White and Black in East Africa '
A Discussion between Sir EDWARD GRIGG , K.C.M.G., K.C.V.O., and Dr. J. H. OLDHAM
APPROXIMATELY 15,000 white settlers live in Kenya and 3,000,000 Africans, 40,000 Indians, and 10,000 Arabs. How shall these races live side by side to their mutual advantage ? That is the question to be discussed in the broadcast this evening.
Sir Edward Grigg ,- D.S.O., M.C., has sat as National Conservative member for Altrincham since 1933. After a brilliant university and journalistic career, he joined the Grenadier Guards in 1914, and achieved something unprecedented by rising within three years from ensign to G.S.O.i of the Guards Division. Amongst many other activities, he was Private Secretary to Mr. Lloyd George from 1921 to 1922, M.P. for Oldham 1922-5, and Secretary to the Rhodes Trustees , 1923-5. He was Governor of Kenya Colony from 1925 to 1931.
Dr. J. H. Oldham has been secretary of the International Missionary Council since 1921 ; Administrative Director of the International Institute of African languages and cultures ; a member of the Advisory Committee on education in the Colonies ; of the Institut Colonial International ; of the East Africa Commission on Closer Union from 1927 to 1928.

: Enquiry into the Unknown

Sir OLIVER LODGE : ' Do we Survive ? '
IT is no reflection on the distinguished speakers who have already broadcast in this series to say that tonight's talk has been eagerly awaited, for they themselves will almost certainly be among the most interested of listeners.
Sir Oliver Lodge , by his illustrious achievements and brave beliefs, is known outside the world of science. To the man and woman in the street his name is familiar.
As he himself puts it, those who have come before him in this series have discussed facts, and he is to jump at once from facts to the conclusion to be drawn from them. Do we survive ?
This question can never be far from the thoughts of us all. This man believes, that man doubts, another hopes, yet another denies. Sir Oliver Lodge , with the simplicity of a great man, will tell listeners of communications he believes that he has had with members of his own family, and he will deal with communications believed to have been received from various people after their death.

: Quarrel Island

IN THIS PLAY is presented the unvarnished story of the last years of the Emperor Napoleon's life in captivity on the island of St. Helena. Here, with all his 'conquests, glories, triumphs, spoils shrunk to this little measure' of Longwood and its petty estate, the Emperor is revealed as an essentially human personality, playing the chief part in a tragi-comedy in which he is supported by the loyal but exasperating members of his little court, the faintly sinister, yet pathetic, figure of Sir Hudson Lowe, his jailer, and the officers of the English garrison. Norman Edwards, the author of Quarrel Island, contributes a short introductory article on the story behind the play on page 622.

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.
