HAZEL WINTER: Early Days in Virginid
2.25 Interval
2.30 Dramatic Reading
' X=O ' by John Drinkwater
This afternoon schools are to hear the reading of an ironical play, showing the folly of war. The scene is set in the tenth year of the siege of Troy. Helen's beauty has long ceased to inspire, the soldiers on either side-they don't know what they are fighting for. But from time to time a Greek is ordered to go -out on night patrol and kill a Trojan, just as a Trojan is ordered to go out and kill a Greek. Neither the one nor the other has any wish to kill.
On the Greek side Pronax, who would be a statesman, leaves his friend, Salvius, who is a poet, reading, and goes out into the darkness, whilst on the Trojan side Ilus, who would be a statesman too, leaves his friend Capys, a young sculptor, on guard, and glides out into the night from the Trojan wall.
Schools will hear what happened and may not go back in their minds as long ago as the siege of Troy. They may remember hearing that men went out on just such patrols between 1914 and 1918. 2.50 Interval

A. J. CRONIN
Dr. Cronin, who made his bow this autumn as one of the regular broadcasting book critics, has followed the path of such distinguished writers as Conan Doyle , H. de Vere Stacpoole , and Somerset Maugham, the path that leads from the medical profession to the world of letters. It is, perhaps, surprising that so few have followed that path, seeing that the opportunities for studying human nature that come to a general medical practitioner in the course of his daily round are such as come to few men in other walks of life.
Dr. Cronin's first novel, ' Hatter's
Castle ', in addition to being a full-blooded melodrama, was a subtle and absorbing study of a megalomaniac degenerate, such as only a medical man could have drawn with the necessary insight. The book, which was published early in 1931, won instantaneous and wide popularity. It has since been followed by other novels, ' Three Loves ', ' Grand Canary ' and ' Kaleidoscope in K ', all conspicuous for a clear-cut intellectual outlook on life and mankind, and a strong sense of vivid drama.

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.
