' Trade Unionism comes of Age '
H. L. BEALES (Reader in Economic History at the London School of Economics)
THE DRAMATIC INTERLUDE last Thursday brought the history of Trade-unionism up to the Sheffield Riots in 1867, which were to culminate in the legislation of 1871 and 1875 defining and securing the legal basis of trade-unionism.
This evening Mr. H. L. Beales is to carry on this history with a general survey over the years from 1867 up to 1913, the year before the war. The growth under review in these fifty years lifted trade-unionism into one of the most powerful organisations in the land, but the fight to achieve that position had to be waged relentlessly, stern opposition to be overcome, set-backs to be ignored.
Gradually trade-unionism gathered more and more groups of industrial workers. Joseph Arch brought in the agricultural labourers ; the extension of the franchise in 1867 gave town labourers the vote, and changed the history of England.
So, gradually but incontestably, the movement gained power. The Dockers' Strike in 1889 brought in the unskilled workers. The Trades Union Congress was founded, a general staff acquired; long struggles over recognition and function ensued, but the Trades. Disputes Act (1906) and the Osborn Judgment (1913) gave trade-unionism a clearly defined status which the pioneers of the movement could never have imagined in their wildest dreams.

HENRI TEMIANKA (violin) ANDRES SEGOVIA (guitar)
TEMIANKA, though of Polish parentage, was horn in Scotland. He made his debut in New York in 192S, and has toured extensively since. He has broadcast to British listeners on more than one occasion.
BEFORE Segovia gave his first recital in a London concert hall some years ago, few realised how dignified and beautiful an instrument the guitar can be in the hands of an expert player who is also an artist. That first recital was a revelation. Segovia has such a command over his instrument, his execution is so fertile in range and colour and his artistry so imaginative that his popularity is not difficult to understand.

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.
