'The Inn Sign Exhibition'
MONTAGUE WEEKLEY
Next week an Inn Sign exhibition is to be held at the Building Centre in New Bond Street-the first of its kind, it is believed, since Bonnell Thornton 's Sign Exhibition in 1762. On the Committee are Sir Edward Lutyens ,
Sir Guy Dawber , Professor A. E. Richardson , A.R.A., Basil Oliver , and other leading architects and artists.
This exhibition arose out of a suggestion made by the Council for the Preservation of Rural England, which pleads for the amenities of the countryside. It was thought a pity that picturesque and historic inn signs were being done away with. Rather, they should be treasured, and first-class artists should be encouraged to design inn signs embodying some of the history and character of the houses to which they are attached. Artists all over the kingdom have taken the idea up, and there will be over 200 suggested signs for inns on show at the exhibition.
This afternoon Montague Weekley , from the Department of Circulation at the Albert and Victoria Museum, is to say something about this exhibition and about inn signs generally-and shop signs, too.

H.A. Mess , Ph.D.
This is the fourth talk in Dr Mess's series, "Living Together", designed for Discussion Groups. He has already dealt with man as a social animal, with family life, and playmates and neighbours. Now the children grow older and go to school - some of them on to college. They begin to feel the power of tradition. Their school is the best school. They learn esprit de corps. Class differences are stamped upon them; they are beginning to grow up.
Dr Mess will discuss the chief characteristics of the chief kinds of English schools, the influence of games upon conduct and ideals, education, and so forth.

: ' Strange to Relate '-No. 2

In which Radio Brings to Life Curious Anecdotes of the Past and Present including
' Believe it or Not' by RIPLEY
Material collected by LESLIE BAILY , ROBERT RIPLEY. , and CHARLES BREWER who introduces the programme
Supported by THE BBC VARIETY ORCHESTRA
Conducted by CHARLES SHADWELL
The original ' Strange to Relate ', in which music, history, and personalities combined to tell their own anecdotes, was broadcast in April. Letters poured in from listeners, one enthusiast saying : ' Strange to relate, but we want more '.
One who was interested was
Robert Ripley , whose ' Relieve it or not' programmes are outstanding radio features in America. (He broadcast, by the by, in the very first ' In Town Tonight' on November 18, 1933.)
As a result of his interest, Ripley offered Charles Brewer the use of his library of coincidences. There are to be three ' Strange to Relate ' programmes-tonight's, and one each in November and December-and in each will be included one or two of Ripley's curiosities, and also material collected by Brewer and Baily, of ' Serapbook ' fame.
Here is a chance for listeners to have some strange incident in their own lives put on the air. Those who think they have material that justifies inclusion in these programmes should submit their contributions to Charles Brewer , c/o BBC, Broadcasting House, London, W.i, but contributions should be limited to 300 words.

Gabriel Faur é (1845-1924) was one of the greatest composers that France produced during the nineteenth century. Yet the curious fact remains that, generally speaking, he has been a prophet only in his own country. His position abroad is similar to that of our own Elgar, but his art is as dissimilar to Elgar's as anything could be.
Grace, delicacy, and charm characterise all Faure's music, but nowhere more than in his songs.
10.17 QUARTET
Quartet in D minor, Op. 7, No. i (in one movement) Schönberg
Schönberg String Quartet No. i in D minor was completed in 1905. Although this work is in one movement, the music falls into four linked sections corresponding to the usual four movement plan with it? allegro, scherzo, adagio, and Rondo-finale. The thematic material of the entire work is stated in the first allegro section.

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.
