: ' The Book of Books'

Four Hundred Years of the Printed
Bible
By the Rev. A. H. WILKINSON
This year has been marked by two important centenaries connected with the Bible. In the year 735 Bede made the first translation into English of the Gospel of St. John. In 1535 Coverdale, later Bishop of Exeter, produced the first printed English Bible. From Coverdale onwards the Bible has gained an increasing hold on the minds of Englishmen until today, and millions of copies of the whole or part of it are printed every year. Mr. Wilkinson is one of the two Secretaries of the British and Foreign Bible Society, which has done more than any other society to make the Bible known throughout the world.

THE KUTCHER STRING
QUARTET:
Samuel Kutcher (violin); Frederick Grinke (violin) ; Raymond Jeremy (viola) ; Douglas Cameron (violoncello)
When Smetana composed his Quartet in E minor, ' Aus meinem Leben ', he said he intended that the form should not follow orthodox procedure, but should be the outcome of the subject, the subject being ' The story of my life'. The first movement portrays Smetana's early days-his love of art, romantic disposition, and yearnings. The second ' recalls memories of my gay life in youth, when I used to write dance music and gave it away wholesale to other young people. I was myself an enthusiastic dancer '.
The third movement' recalls the bliss of my first love for a girl who afterwards became my faithful wife.' The fourth movement depicts the joy of creating a national music, and ' the interruption of the catastrophe, the beginning of my deafness, a glimpse into the melancholy future'. We hear the persistent note with which his ears were for ever haunted.

: The Empire at Work—10

This evening the last broadcast for a while will be given of this popular series, which was designed to show the Empire at Work by means of talks at the microphone by various Empire workers. In the initial broadcast on January 6, the Bishop of the Arctic spoke of Arctic Canada, and a policeman on the Gold Coast, a tea planter in Assam, and a schoolmaster in Jamaica, each described his life and experiences. Such infinite variety set a precedent for the broadcasts that followed, and tonight Canon Peacock will describe a school for African boys in Nigeria and recount some good stories of the superstitions of the natives, while another talk will be about life on the loneliest cattle out-station in Australia.

: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

An Appeal on behalf of THE ALL-HALLOWS' COUNTRY Hos
PITAL, DlTCHINGHAM, NORFOLK, by LORD ELMLEY, M.P.
All Hallows' Hospital, Ditchingham, is on the Norfolk-Suffolk border, in Lord Elmley's constituency. It serves a large and poor agricultural district. A small hospital of only twenty-five beds, it does not share the publicity given to its larger sisters.
Situated at Ditchingham for over sixty years, and owned and partly staffed by the Community of All Hallows, the Hospital has no foundation capital and every major expenditure has to be met by a special local effort. An increase of staff is the outstanding need and Lord Elmley, in his appeal, will show how pressing that need is.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to [address removed]

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
