: ' Christianity and its Critics '-1

The Rev. D. 0. SOPER, Ph.D.
This is the first of five talks by Donald Soper , famous for his Wednesday meetings on Tower Hill. On a May morning nine years ago he got up on the wall and clapped his hands and drew critics of Christianity round him, and he has been doing it ever since. Every Wednesday at one o'clock he is to be seen there, in sunshine or rain, in wind or hail or snow, answering the questions that are flung at him.
In this new series he is to deal with people first and problems second ; to put the case for organised Christianity to those men and women who at present find it impossible to accept it; to state as fairly as he can the point of view of some typical critics whom listeners have all met.
The critic who is concerned about himself and his destiny, and is ' incurably religious ' ; the critic who has no use for organised Christianity and all the ' mumbo-jumbo ' of ritual, though he accepts pageantry in trooping the colour, and even at his own wedding; the critic who says : ' It doesn't matter what you believe, it's the way you live that matters ' ; the critic who complains of a lack of charity in various Christian communities and says it is worse than their doctrinal differences ... each will be dealt with and answered. And in his fifth talk Dr. Soper will reply to listeners' questions.

: Chamber Music

GEORGE ACKROYD (flute)
THE STRATTON STRING
. QUARTET:
George Stratton (violin); Carl Taylor (violin); Watson Forbes (viola);
John Moore (violoncello)
An attractive example of Sir Donald Tovey 's style as a composer is the Variations on a Theme by Gluck. The theme is a ballet from Gluck's Armide and is stated as it stands in Gluck's score with its pizzicato accompaniment, its viola and 'cello in octaves without double bass, and its occasional holding notes.
The six variations are faithful to the form and phrasing of the theme, but are independent of the surface melody, for which they substitute many different ideas, some of the variations or sections being double, that is to say, representing each repeat, by a. different kind of variation. The whole work being in G minor, the fifth variation is a slow cantabile in G major, with ornamentations which become the subject of a fluttering fugue for muted strings in the sixth and last variation.

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.
