: ' Three Common Graces '

The Rev. Father VINCENT McNABB ,
O.P.
2-' Kindness '
This is the second of three talks by Father McNabb. On July 19 he spoke on truthfulness; this afternoon he is to speak on kindness ; and on August 16 he is to speak on courtesy.
Father Vincent McNabb is one of the best-known preachers of the day. He frequently appears on the Roman Catholic platform in Hyde Park, and he has a wide and sympathetic following both within and beyond his own communion. The late G. K. Chesterton , who was an ardent admirer of Father McNabb, wrote of him: 'I will say briefly and firmly that he is one of the few great men I have met in my life ; that he is great in many ways, mentally and morally and mystically and practically..... Nobody who ever met or saw or heard Father McNabb has ever forgotten him..... He is really a popular speaker, in the rare sense of having real popular sympathies; and no man in modern politics has so firmly and even fiercely loved the people.'

: Imaginary Biography ' The Children of Inchkeith ' DONALD CARSWELL

This is the imaginary biography of the two children who, as babies, were put by James IV of Scotland on the island of Inchkeith with a dumb nurse in order that they might teach themselves speech without being taught, and that he might discover the first language of the world. In due course they were taken off the island. Some say they spoke good Hebrew, but of that an old Scottish historian says, ' I can't say '. No one knows what happened to these children. This evening Donald Carswell, a well-known Scottish journalist is to give his conjecture.

: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

An appeal on behalf of THE CHURCH ARMY by a mother and daughter who have just come back from a fortnight by the sea in a Church Army Holiday Home
Tonight a mother and her little girl, who have just returned from a fortnight in one of the eight Church Army holiday homes, are to appeal on behalf of the Society's Fresh Air work. The mother will speak of life from a poor mother's point of view, and of her holiday experiences. Her little girl is to describe her own.
Last year the Church Army was enabled to give holidays at the sea or in the country to over 5,000 mothers and children. This year a new holiday home for mothers and children of the North has been opened at Southport, and an experimental home at Weston-super-Mare will be opened on August 1.
This appeal is confined to the Church
Army's Fresh Air work, but the Society has over sixty other branches of work, which touch life at every stage from babyhood to old age. Prebendary Carlile, founder and Honorary Chief Secretary of the Church Army, will be happy to give fuller particulars if anybody cares to write to him, at [address removed]
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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
