: 'The Way to God'

Section I-' What is Man ? '
' Human Nature' by the Rev. J. S. WHALE
For those listeners who were unable to hear the introductory talk by the Religious Director on October 7 one can best sum up this series by quoting a passage from the Archbishop of York's foreword in the new pamphlet ' The Way to God '.
' The series entitled " The Way to
God" starts with familiar facts of experience ; it proceeds to questions that almost everyone is concerned to ask ; it states the answer which the Christian Church exists to proclaim ; and it ends by showing the claim which that answer makes on us today and the manner of life that corresponds to that claim.'
Today the Rev. J. S. Whale , one of the greatest of living preachers, who is to lecture in the first section ' What is Man ? ', will talk on ' Human Nature ', and on November 4 he will lecture on ' Man's Need of God '. Questions arising out of these two lectures should be sent in as soon after each lecture as possible, addressed to the Religious Director, Broadcasting House, and on November 18 Mr. Whale will answer them over the air.
The series is to last until July next year, and dates of all broadcasts and the fullest information are to be found in the pamphlet The Way to God', obtainable from the B.B.C. Publications Department, price 6d., 7d. post free.

: The Week's Good Cause

Today's appeal is to be made by the distinguished actor, George Arliss , for the foremost and representative charity of the theatrical profession in Great Britain. Its objects are to help old and deserving actors and actresses, and to relieve the needs of those who, by ill-health and misfortune, have fallen by the way.
As its last president, the late Sir Gerald du Maurier, was never tired of saying : actors and actresses give their services for every charity under the sun. This is their charity. The profession was always uncertain and precarious, and never more so than in the last ten years. In no other calling can the apparently successful be so suddenly and unexpectedly reduced from a moderate living to absolute want. The fund disburses, in regular weekly allowances, nearly £4,000 annually to its pensioners alone. Its assured income falls far short of this. By giving generously, listeners will be helping those who have entertained them.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to George Arliss , Esq., Actors' Benevolent Fund, [address removed]

Relayed from
The Park Lane Hotel At the pianoforte, J. A. BYFIELD
' The Lost Chord' was sketched by Sullivan at the deathbed of his brother Frederic. It was published a month or two later and became in less than a year one of the best-sellers of all time. Nearly every famous contralto singer over half a century has made it one of the first things in her repertory. It has been stated that the first phonograph record ever played in England was this song. The Prince of Wales (later King Edward VII) was present on that occasion.

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.
