' Some Signs of Spring '
RICHARD MORSE
Although we are still in the very middle of winter, the signs of spring are growing in number almost every day. Already the sun rises a little earlier, sets a little later, and climbs a little higher in the sky at noon. It therefore gives a little more of its warmth to our part of the earth.
Already, too, the plants and animals in the fields are showing in a multitude of ways that spring is drawing near. Tree buds are swelling, seeds are beginning to sprout, and birds are changing their habits, their voices, and their plumage.
About these signs of the spring with its promise of new life and fresh, lovely days, Mr. Morse is to tell you in this, his first talk of the new term.

: 'Goodbye, Mr. Chips '

A Radio Play by JAMES HILTON. and BARBARA BURNHAM
Based on the novel by JAMES HILTON
,
Colley 1, 2 and 3 LAURI LANE and RODNEY MILLINGTON and The Scene is Brookfield School in the Fen Country
Production by BARBARA BURNHAM
This play is the saga of a schoolmaster-one Mr. Chipping, commonly known as ' Chips '. He comes to Brookfield School in 1870, the year of the Franco-Prussian war. a young man of no great ability, of no outstanding personality, a very ordinary young man. He survived the Boer War and the Great War. What happened to him, how he hung on, how his character grew and his appearance declined, until at last through fate he came to -be Head of Brookfield, identified with it, inseparable from it, is told in the play-a play in which the story matters least of all. ' Chips ' is what matters : an individualist and a character, and one that may well win radio fame.

: 'India'

The Rev., C. F. ANDREWS
After a distinguished career at Cambridge, tonight's speaker joined the Cambridge Brotherhood, Delhi, in 1904, and was a Fellow of Punjab University in 1908. In 1931 he joined Rabindranath Tagore 's Institution at Santiniketan, Bengal, of which he is now Vice-President. He went to South Africa to help in the Smuts-Gandhi Agreement, 1913 to 1914, and to Fiji concerning the Abolition of Indentured Indian Labour in 1915 and 1917. He was Adviser to the Indian Delegation at the Kenya Conversations held in London in 1923, and he went to South Africa again in 1925 to help in the Indo-Union Agreement, which was signed in January, 1927. Two years later he visited British Guiana with reference to East Indian settlers.
It will thus be seen that the Rev.
C. F. Andrews has devoted his life to India. He is the first speaker in this series who has made India his home. Among numerous publications, he has written three books on Mahatma Gandhi , whose personal friend he is : ' The Indians' Problems ', ' India and the Simon Report' published in 1930, and ' Sadhu Sundar Singh ', published last year.

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.

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.
