' The Changing World '
2-' The Peasants' Revolt'
RHODA POWER
Two of the most important figures in the Peasants' Revolt of 1381 were Wat Tyler and John Ball. Tyler was largely responsible for the spread of the rising over Kent and the subsequent march to London that ended so disastrously for the rebels. John Ball , a lesser-known figure, was by far the more remarkable personality. He was an English priest who preached the doctrines of John Wycliffe and boldly advocated social equality after his release from prison by Tyler. His views involved him in trouble with the authorities on several occasions. One of his inflammatory speeches to the rebels included the famous coup)et:—
' When Adam delved and Eve span,
Who was then the gentleman ? '
In today's dramatic episode listeners will be taken into a fourteenth-century ale-house to hear about this ill-fated revolt.

—2 ' The Human Heart'
By R. C. GARRY , M.B., Ch.B., D.Sc., Professor of Physiology, University College, Dundee, the University of St. Andrews
The human heart weighs ten to fifteen ounces. When a man is resting quietly, the heart beats sixty to eighty times a minute. Each time it beats it forces through itself about two ounces of blood.
In strenuous exercise, however, much more blood must be passed through, and the heart then beats 150 to 180 times a minute, and each beat forces through seven ounces of blood. Thus, as Dr. Garry is to explain today, the heart adjusts itself to the needs of the body. He will pay particular attention to the action of the heart valves, and will name the more important parts... Another feature of this talk is that a record of the heart sounds will be broadcast.

: London Scenes-4 Hyde Park CLOUGH WILLIAMS-ELLIS

To the Londoner the thought of Hyde Park conjures up a succession of colourful scenes : the Row with its riders of all ages and degrees of skill ; the sun gleaming on the Serpentine, its surface ruffled by ducks, Lido bathers, and rowing-boats ; the drone of traffic ; nursemaids and children and barking dogs and down-and-outs ; music from the bandstand punctuated by the ' ping ' of ticket-collectors' punches. Clough Williams-Ellis , a well-known architect, will give his impressions of these scenes, and lively impressions they are, too. He will talk about everything that has to do with the Park, from the historical seizure of the grounds of Westminster Abbey by Henry VII to the present-day problems of upkeep and organisation.

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.
