: 'We have reason to believe'

A study of the relations between psychology and religion by a medical psychologist
I - 'The Scope of Psychology'
'Religion and Science' is a headline to which, from the days of the Darwinian controversy, we have become well used. Today the words 'Religion and the Sciences' would better represent the issue, into so many sub-divisions has 'Science' been split.
One of the youngest of the sciences is psychology, and - from the point of view of religion - it is perhaps the most important of all.
Many nineteenth-century scientists assumed that 'Science' contradicted religion; some of their successors, who represent one school of psychologists, claim that psychology does not so much contradict religion as explain it away. This is obviously a more dangerous form of attack.
The medical psychologist who is to give a series of five lectures with the title 'We have reason to believe' is not of this school. He has studied both psychology and religion, and after carefully defining the two terms, he will explain the relations that, in his judgment, should rule between them.

: 'Can we be Materialists ? '

By KENNETH INGRAM
This afternoon, in the first of a new series of five talks, Mr. Kenneth Ingram proposes to examine the philosophy of materialism, and the possible results of its impact on civilisation. He will inquire whether, and how, our Christian civilisation can be strengthened and adapted, so as to withstand the attacks of a materialist philosophy of life. Mr. Ingram is the author of ' Modern Thought on Trial ' and other books on the social philosophy of religion.

An Appeal on behalf of THE
CHILDREN'S COUNTRY HOLIDAYS FUND, by SEYMOUR HICKS

8.45 THE WEEK'S
GOOD CAUSE
An Appeal on behalf of ' THE ROYAL SURREY COUNTY Hos
PITAL, GUILDFORD by Canon H. R. L. SHEPPARD ,
C.H., D.D.
The Royal Surrey County Hospital, Guildford, is the county hospital for the county of Surrey, and this year celebrates its seventieth birthday. Founded in 1865 with only sixty beds, it now possesses 184 beds. This gradual trebling of its size corresponds with the ever-increasing population of the county due to the expansion of the southern area of London itself, and to the facilities in transport which today enable many of those working in London to live in the country.
Once again the hospital is faced with the necessity of adding to its beds, and a new ward of thirty-two beds is to be erected immediately. This has been made possible by a gift from a local resident, but funds have to be found to provide extra equipment and staff for this new ward.
In order to pay its way, the hospital will be compelled to find an additional £7,000 to maintain its, work. There are about 200 people waiting for admission, some of whom have been on the waiting list for nearly a year.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to [address removed]

: THE MARGATE MUNICIPAL ORCHESTRA

Leader, REGINALD BOOTHROYD
Conductor, HERBERT LODGE
FRANK TITTERTON (tenor)
Relayed from
The Winter Gardens, Margate
Herbert Lodge began his musical carter as a double-bass player. Having won a scholarship at the Royal Academy of Music at an early age, he studied under Charles Winterbbttom. Before long he was playing in the Covent Garden Opera Orchestra and in 1919 he joined the London Symphony and Royal Philharmonic Orchestras. He has given double-bass recitals in London and the provinces and over the air. But, like Koussevitzky, Lodge was not content to remain a double-bassist ; he aspired to the baton. Even at eighteen he was conducting an amateur operatic society, and during the War he ran a symphony orchestra of his own. In 1929 he succeeded Bainbridge Robinson as musical director of the Margate Municipal Orchestra.

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.
