: ' Religion and Social Realities* -I

MAURICE Reckitt
There are Christians on the one hand who say that the Church should not meddle with politics, and there are those on the other hand who say that the present order of society must be overthrown in the name of Christianity ; but between these extremes there is a very large number of Christians who feel permanently uncomfortable about such obvious iUs as unemployment and bad housing. It is hoped that they will get from Mr. Reckitt's fundamental examination of the problem the guidance that they seek.
Mr. Reckitt is to give the first of three talks on this subject today, and the remaining two are on May 24 and June 7.

: ' Spiritual Healing ' —

A practising medical psychologist
It will be remembered that on April 19 the Rev. J. Maillard gave the first talk of this trilogy on Spiritual Healing, and that on May 3 the Rev. J. P. Arendzen gave the second. Today a medical psychologist is to wind up the series. It should be understood that he is a professed Christian, whose Harley Street training enables him to speak with authority on this intricate subject.

: Chamber Music ESTHER COLEMAN (contralto) THE BROSA STRING QUARTET

Antonio Brosa (violin); Norman Chapple (violin); Leonard Rubens
(viola); Livio Mannucci (violoncello) Verdi's String Quartet in E minor was composed in 1873 while waiting for the production of Aida, which had been postponed. It is designed on purely classical lines. The first movement is dramatic in character and the first subject bears a certain resemblance to the music associated with Amneris in Aida. The second movement is simple and graceful and the principal subject foreshadows a passage in the first act of Falstaff. The movement in scherzo form has an operatic flavour with its melodramatic agitation. The last movement is considered the best of the four. ' In essence ', says Francis Toye, ' it consists of a single idea, treated and developed with marked ingenuity, which unmistakably suggests the rapid chatter of the women in Falstaff'.

: Living in the Past 'Having a Meal' ALICE RITCHIE

.Listeners have heard from Harold Child how our forebears went to the theatre, and from Arthur Bryant how they travelled'. Today Miss Alice Ritchie is to describe how they had a meal.
Ever since her Newnham College days Alice Ritchie has culled a harvest of interesting facts about manners and customs in days gone by, as listeners to her talks in ' Fashionable Crazes ' know. They will remember her three broadcasts on Pets, the Simple Life, and Gardens.

: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

An appeal on behalf of THE CHURCH LADS' BRIGADE, by Field Marshal Sir CLAUD JACOB ,
G.C.B., G.C.S.I., K.C.M.G.
The Church Lads' Brigade is the ' Church Missionary Society ' to adolescent lads, and employs uniform and drill both to appeal to their romantic sense, and to deepen the discipline it would inculcate in them. The Brigade does not aim at training lads for national emergency, and is not a cadet force.
It seeks to make good citizens only in so far as good Christians are always the best citizens.
Drill is but the framework of Company activities. The greater time is spent on physical training, games, sports, and other recreations. In the summer camps the same ideal is aimed at.

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.
