' The Golden Age of Hindu India '
EILEEN POWER
(Professor of Economic History in the University of London)
India possesses one of the oldest civilisations in the world, and this afternoon Professor Eileen Power is to talk about the most interesting period in the history of the great country-India's ' Golden Age '. She will tell you about the Indian people between A.D. i and 1,000 ; about the Gupta
Empire in the north (A.D. 320 to about 470) ; and the great part played by India in the civilisation of the whole
East.
You will also hear the interesting story of how Indian mathematics was carried by the Arabs to Europe; how Buddhism spread eastward from India, and about the Pallavas in South India. The Pallava kings were very powerful, and their influence lasted until the tenth century A.D. The Pallavas were noted for their love of art, especially sculpture and architecture, and also for their work as colonisers.

: The Artist and his Public—10

A Discussion between ERIC NEWTON and R. H. WILENSKI
This evening listeners are to hear a clash between Mr. Eric Newton and Mr. R. H. Wilenski , artist and art critic. Mr. Wilenski's ' The Modern Movement in Art', published in 1927, is accepted as a brilliant exposition of the modernist movement ; he is a past contributor to THE RADIO Times, and has recently contributed two articles on Twentieth Century Style to The Listener.
Mr. Newton, counsel this evening for the old school, is to cross-examine an art critic who has sympathies with the new one. The older generation will be interested to hear the expert champion the modern movement. It seems it does not matter from the modernist point of view what the picture is like, so long as the artist's intentions are original. But Mr. Newton, and the older generation, expect the picture to give pleasure of some kind. They are not concerned with the artist's intentions. Mr. Wilenski does not look at a picture and say, ' Do I like this?' He looks at it and says, ' What is this ? What sort of activity has produced it ? '

: Jack Barty's Party

to which he has invited several guests including
THE B.B.C. VARIETY ORCHESTRA
Directed by KNEALE KELLEY
This is the second of Jack Barty 's hilarious parties. He ' threw ' the first the week before last, and the third is to follow on April 5. They provide an opportunity for listeners to hear more of this popular comedian than they can in an ordinary Variety show.
Jack Barty is a very popular provincial comedian and is well known for his work in White Horse Inn and Casanova at the Coliseum. He spent the first half of last year filming in Hollywood and came back to broadcast in ' Off for the Holidays '. He plays the part of a talent scout in the In Town Tonight film, shortly to be released. And those who heard him broadcast in Music-Hall last month will not forget his singing of ' Roast Beef of Old England '.

: A Pianoforte Interlude

by ERNEST LUSH
When Schumann reviewed Chopin's second Ballad, he referred to the first in G minor as ' one of the composer's wildest and most individual compositions '. Chopin told Schumann that his four Ballads were inspired by the poems of Mickiewicz, to which Schumann adds: 'a a poet, again, might -easily write words to them. They move the innermost depth of the soul'.

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.
