' What do you Think ? '-3
JOHN BROWN
This afternoon John Brown is to speak of his experiences among the unemployed in the new Germany. He will say what it is like at the Labour Exchanges and in the Labour Camps. He will discuss the daily programme and describe life in a Storm Trooper's home.
He will compare being ' on the dole' in Great Britain with German conditions, and say something about the new centres for girls, the Labour Service Corps, and what the women think of the changes.
John Brown is a labourer who was for over two years ' on the dole ' in the North of England, from 1929 to
1931.
Later he went to Durham University,
Ruskin College, and has lived among workers in various countries. He is the author of two books, ' I Was a Tramp ' and' I Saw Myself '.

Part 2
'The Public Social Services'-2
John Smith , his Father, and Grand-father
A. D. K. OWEN
This evening A. D. K. Owen continues the history of the Smiths. Listeners who heard the previous talk already know a good deal about this typical but mythical working-class family. They have been introduced, for instance, to John Smith 's house on the municipal estate outside a large industrial town in the North 'of England. And they have heard enough about John to visualise the type of man he is : a fitter's mate, earning not much more than two pounds a week; The wife, Mary, too. She has been married ten years or so, and was once employed in a jam factory. Then there are children and relations to complicate the scene. How this family manages to keep going and take advantage of the Social Services provides an abundance of interesting material for this talk and the talks that follow.

Tonight Nelson Keys opens the New Year with the January Revue of 1936. ' Bunch ' Keys is the most individual revue artist of our generation. The stage revues in which he has played are as many as their names are familiar : Listeners will remember his brilliant work on the air in Songs from the Shows, Music-Halls, and Nine Days' Wonder at Radiolympia two years ago.

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.
