: 'MEN, MONEY, AND THE MINISTRY'

The Rev. M. Gresford Jones
The object of this talk is to put forward a plea for economic reform in the Church of England. Mr. Gresford Jones will mention some of the present inequalities, pointing out that neither the sources of income, the spending of income, nor the tenure of office command real moral assent ; it will be suggested that if the Church's revenues could be redistributed more equitably a great release of spiritual power would follow.

: 'I KNEW A MAN'

' Lord Fisher'
Admiral Sir William Goodenough ,
G.C.B., M.V.O.
In one of his somewhat rare moments of reminiscent expansion Lord Fisher said that one of those who had encouraged him when he was a young gunnery lieutenant was Captain J. G. Goodenough , then Captain of the Minotaur. Admiral Goodenough, who will speak of Lord Fisher, is his son. The Admiral's earliest memory of Lord Fisher is a memory of being taken to the circus, as a small boy, by Lord Fisher. He recalls the excited amusement mingled with awe with which he heard Lord Fisher exchange jokes and repartee with the clown in the ring. It is of sterner and more important matters that Admiral Goodenough will speak when he attempts to put before his listeners a description of the very complex character of a man to whom this country owes a great debt.

: THE BBC ORCHESTRA

(Section F)
Led by Marie Wilson
Conducted by Clarence Raybould
Mary Jarred (contralto)
Elgar's song cycle ' Sea Pictures ' consists of five songs for contralto voice and orchestra, and dates in order of composition between the ' Enigma ' Variations and The Dream of Gerontius. They were first produced in 1899 at the Norwich Festival and were sung by Madame (now Dame) Clara Butt , to whom they were dedicated. Their delicate beauty has made them popular with almost every type of audience, and they rank rather with the more ambitious choral works than with Elgar's songs.
These five songs show Elgar's delicate poetic feeling and his mastery of orchestral effect. ' Sea Slumber Song' is a setting of a verse by Roden Noel ; In Haven (Capri) ' is a setting of a pleasing little poem by Elgar's wire ; ' Sabbath Morning at Sea' is from a poem by Elizabeth Browning ; 'Where Corals lie' is a setting of a poem by Richard Garnett ; and the words of the last song The Swimmer' are by Adam Lindsay Gordon.

: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

An appeal on behalf of THE SHAFTESBURY SOCIETY by Sir CHARLES SANDERS , K.B.E.
The Shaftesbury Society (inc.), founded in 1844 as the Ragged School Union with Lord Ashley (Shaftesbury) as its president, promotes the religious education of the poorest children, chiefly of the metropolitan district, and seeks their mental, moral, and physical well-being through 190 associated missions and their manifold activities, through six residential schools for physically defective children, eleven homes and camps, its cripple department with 7,300 names on its register, and its benevolent and clothing funds.
There are 6,000 voluntary workers in this up-to-date organised effort to supplement the work of Church and State by bringing to necessitous children and their families in crowded industrial areas the help and hope of practical Christianity. Its total income last year was £78,000, more than half being derived from voluntary gifts and bequests. Its Council is composed of evangelical laymen and women.
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.
