: To Unemployed Clubs

An Introductory Talk
The Right Honble. GEORGE LANSBURY,
M.P.
(From Manchester)
The object of this series is to provide talks to listeners in Unemployed Clubs, of which there are nearly 2,500 in the country. Many of them are equipped with wireless sets and have eager listeners.
The series will consist of three talks a week-on Monday and Tuesday mornings, and Friday afternoons. Those on Monday will deal with industrial subjects that have a special interest to the unemployed, such as conditions of unemployment in other countries, how affairs abroad affect our own trade, the question of machinery and labour, and so forth.
Tuesday talks will deal more specifically with club activities, while on Friday afternoons John Hilton will give a weekly commentary on current events and affairs in general. These talks are especially for Unemployed Clubs and the B.B.C. hopes that their members will not hesitate to write in with suggestions and criticisms.
Mr. George Lansbury , who is a respected figure in public life, will open the series this morning.

: 'Poverty in Plenty'-1 ' Placing the Field' GRAHAM HUTTON

It is the aim of this Discussion Group series to examine a number of questions arising out of the complexities of the economic position in the world today. The purport of the series can be summed up in the question : In what does the ' economic problem ' consist ?
Mr. Graham Hutton (Assistant Editor of the Economist) will act as ' 'Editor' throughout. He will introduce the series this evening, and will also come to the microphone at the end of each single talk by the various experts and give a short summary of the important points that have been raised. In this way Mr. Hutton will link up each talk with the preceding and succeeding ones, and to the general theme of the series.
Leaders and members of Discussion
Groups should write for the pamphlet, ' Talks for Discussion Groups, Winter 1934-5 ', obtainable from the B.B.C. Publications Department, price 2d., post free.

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.

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.
