Interview with I-An Anglican
The Archbishop of York
Reported by HOWARD MARSHALL
Three years ago Howard Marshall toured the slums and distressed areas of Britain, and described them in a notable series of talks called ' Other People's Houses '. Now he is on a tour of Britain to find out the specific purpose of some of the thousands of churches and chapels. Are they there to make men and women holy ? Or have they some mission more closelv connected with our material lives and problems ? Or do both these ideals come in ? Marshall has already interviewed the Archbishop of York, and will interview the Rev. S. M. Berry (representing the Free Churches), the Rev. G. F. MacLeod (the Church of Scotland), the Rev. Vincent McNabb (the Roman Catholic Church), and Canon F. R. Barry (the Church bf England). He will come to the microphone every Sunday for five weeks and report what he has found out.
In his attempt to get direct answers on common problems, he would like to enlist the help of listeners. What sort of questions would they like him to ask ?

: (La Chanson Romande'

A recital of folk-songs of French and Italian speaking Switzerland from
Lausanne by THE 'CHANSON ROMANDE'
CHORUS of Radio Lausanne
Conductor, HANS HAUG
The ' Chanson romande' Chorus of Lausanne belongs, as its name implies, to French-speaking Switzerland, though it includes in its programme tonight some songs from Italian-speaking Switzerland as well. M. Haug , who is a well-known conductor in Switzerland, and is on the staff of Radio Lausanne, has made a collection of old songs, some of which were in danger of being forgotten before he re-discovered them and made them known again through the medium of the Chorus.

: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

An appeal on behalf of COLLEGE HARLECH, by Sir WILLIAM JENKINS , M.P.
Ten years ago it was decided to found in Wales a residential college for adult education where as many as possible could enjoy facilities for more continuous study after leaving school than is afforded by the classes provided by the University, the Workers' Educational Association, and similar organisations.
There are now thirty-five sessional students, including always a sprinkling of foreign students. In addition, twenty-five unemployed men are brought to the college every month from the occupational clubs of the South Wales coal valleys. They contribute part of their benefit, and are given training in music, drama, manual crafts, and gymnastics. Harlech College is sometimes called in Welsh ' The College of the Second Chance '.
The cost of the full-time students is only in small part met by public grants. Help is urgently needed to provide bursaries (£40 each), better library and reading-room accommodation, and personal expenses, such as clothing, boots, and playing kit.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to The Treasurer, [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.

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