: The New Christendom

'Thy Kingdom Come'
By His Grace THE LORD ARCHBISHOP
OF YORK
Relayed from York Minster
With this talk, the Archbishop of York concludes the ' New Christendom' series of monthly talks, which began last September. The series was opened by Sir Evelyn Wrench , who gave a general survey of the world today with its many problems and its clashes between nationalism and internationalism, between materialism and a spiritual view of the universe, which the modern missionary movement has to face. In subsequent months authoritative speakers, representing the Established, Free, and Roman Catholic Churches in Great Britain have spoken on various aspects of missionary work today, indicating its aims, scope, and methods. The growth of the younger churches overseas and the age of co-operation with the older Christian communities of the West have also been dealt with. This afternoon, the Archbishop, who as Bishop of Manchester took a leading part in the Jerusalem Meeting of the International Missionary Council in 1928, will survey the ground that has been covered, and will speak of the promise as well as the difficulties of the future.

: Chamber Music

THE LYRA QUARTET:
Gordon Walker (flute); David Wise (violin) ; Anthony Collins (viola) ;
John Cockerill (harp)
JOHN ARMSTRONG (tenor)
The Lyra Quartet is a unique chamber music combination. Gordon Walker , the founder of the Quartet, is principal flute of the London Symphony Orchestra, and was for ten years principal flute at Covent Garden. He has appeared as soloist in Mozart Concertos at the ' Proms and also with such famous singers as Selma Kiirtz, Lily Pons and Toti dal Monte.
The violinist, David Wise , is well known as a chamber music player-he was once a member of the Brosa String Quartet-and he is often heard in recitals over the air. Anthony Collins is principal viola of the London Symphony Orchestra and a composer of some distinction, having written, r.mong other works, two quartets for the Lyra Quartet. John Cockerill is one of the finest harpists in the country, and is principal harpist of the London Symphony Orchestra.
The chief aim of the Lyra Quartet is the providing of first-rate performances of neglected music written for unusual combinations of instruments.

: 'Hans Christian Andersen'

PAUL LEYSSAC
As a boy, Paul Leyssac , actor, author, and lecturer, loved Hans Andersen 's fairy tales. His Danish mother used to read them to him as nobody else could, for she had heard them told by Hans Andersen himself. Grown to manhood, Leyssac translated many of these stories and fairy tales into French. In Paris he recited them at concerts and ' at homes '. They attracted attention, and his translations were published in 1928. Mr. Leyssac also made a special English version which he uses in all his readings and lectures, and which is shortly to be published. What he is always stressing is the fact that Hans Andersen was much more than a children's writer. He had a strain of pungent irony and satire that could at times be almost as effective as that of Dean Swift himself.

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.
