: THE DAILY SERVICE

From page 60 of ' When Two or Three'

: Inside and Out

Here is the second of a new series to show housewives that however dull and monotonous life may be on a Monday morning, they have infinitely less work to do, thanks to science, than had housewives three or four generations ago.
Professor Allan Ferguson , who is
Professor of Physics at East London College, will again give some examples of how housewives had little to help them in 1840. Whatever washing day may mean now, it was then a servitude. It is recorded that in a typical working class home dirt was thumped out with a mallet weighing six or seven pounds. Gas lighting was still being introduced into the streets of large towns.
In the last days of Victoria it is said that she refused to have gas lights in Buckingham Palace for fear of explosion. Hot water systems did not come into general use till the sixties, electric lighting in houses not till the eighties. And as for your cupboard-you made most things yourself: pickles, jams, bread, cakes. For housewives without servants there were no leisure hours.

: To the Unemployed

Question Time : A Service of Information
RICHARD CLEMENTS
This is the first of a new series which will provide a new and important service of information to unemployed listeners. Talks will be given explaining the rights of our citizens under our regulations and laws.
What rights have you as a tenant ?
Are you getting full compensation under your insurances ? Do you know the law and your rights in regard to hire-purchase payments ? These and similar points will be discussed.
Listeners are invited to send in their personal difficulties. Letters should be addressed to the B.B.C., London, and the envelopes marked with the letter ' U '. All such letters will be forwarded to the National Council of Social Service, who will, with the help of experts, be responsible for answering them.

: The Artist and his Public: 1: Starting from Scratch

Eric Newton
The object of this new series is to explain the significance of modern art and the reasons for the wide disagreement between modernist and traditionalist.
This evening and in five subsequent talks Mr. Eric Newton, art critic of the Manchester Guardian, is to discuss art in general and the aim and duty of the artist. In his seventh talk he will ask the man in the street what he thinks about it all, and in five remaining broadcasts he will put certain authorities of contrasting views in the witness box and examine and cross-examine them.
As so many references will be made in these talks to some particular works of art or some particular artist's technique, listeners would do well to read beforehand the new pamphlet "The Approach To Art", obtainable at the B.B.C. Publications Department, price 6d, 7d. post free.
Discussion Group leaders will find this series explained on pages 21 and 22 of the green pamphlet "Talks for Discussion Groups, Winter 1934-5", obtainable from the B.B.C. Publications Department, price 2d. post free.

: ' Youth Looks Ahead '-I

Here is the first of a series of twenty-minute talks in which young men of all classes, and perhaps some young women, will be given the opportunity to express their philosophy of life and their outlook on the world and on the future. After all, they or at least their generation will be directing our affairs sooner or later. It is absorbingly interesting to know their ideas ; both what they make of the world, and what they would make of it.

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.
