: MISSIONARY TALK

' Adisadel-A Triumph of African
Schoolboy Self-help'
The Rt. Rev. Alan J. Knight
Bishop of Guiana, till recently headmaster of the St. Nicholas Grammar
School, Accra, Gold Coast
Two years ago the speaker gave a broadcast talk on how the boys of the St. Nicholas Grammar School at Accra, on the Gold Coast, decided to erect their new school buildings themselves. The old ones were falling down, and they were not disheartened by his telling them that it seemed impossible to raise the F43,000 which new buildings would mean. The sixth-form boys replied by presenting him with a picture showing the building of Buckfast Abbey, and one of them remarked
/that it was built entirely by monks.
' Surely, if we tried, we could build our own school.' They did try, and succeeded. At the end of last year the Governor of the Gold Coast opened the new buildings of ' Adisadel ' as the school is now called, and the story of how this fine piece of self-help on the part of African schoolboys was carried through will be the theme of today's talk.
In June last the Rt.
Rev. Alan J. Knight was consecrated Bishop of Guiana, and the carrying on of the new school will now pass into other hands. But it is fitting that he, as the headmaster and inspirer of his boys, should himself tell the story of what they have accomplished.

: CHRISTIAN UNITY

' The Edinburgh Conference'
Sir Henry Lunn , M.D.
(From Edinburgh)
The first World Conference on Faith and Order was held at Lausanne, in Switzerland, in 1927, the object being the reunion of the churches of Christendom. Over 400 delegates were present, representing more than 100 Churches. They sat for nearly three weeks, and produced a report recording agreements and disagreements reached in the course of the discussions. The report was circulated. The responses of the churches began to come in. Steps were then taken to promote the joint study of outstanding matters of disagreement by theologians representing different churches ; and eventually a second World Conference was called. It met in Edinburgh on August 3.
This afternoon Sir Henry Lunn , who has been with the movement from the very beginning and has spent much of his life in trying to forward the cause of Christian reunion, is to give a short historical outline of the various efforts that have been made for Christian unity during the last ten years.
Next Sunday the Archbishop of York will broadcast his impressions of the present conference.

: 'AS I LOOK BACK'

C. H. Middleton
That large number of listeners who tune in regularly to C. H. Middleton's talks on gardening-many of them not interested in gardening itself, but in the humour and humanity of the speaker-will. look forward to his talk in this reminiscent series. Middleton stands out as he is, a man unashamed of his humble beginnings; simple, unaffected, astonishingly wise; a man who seems quite unaware of the success he has won in life: a very big success after all, for his name is familiar throughout the country.

: CHAMBER MUSIC

May Blyth (soprano)
The Menges String Sextet:
Isolde Menges (violin); Beatrice Carrelle (violin) ; John Yewe Dyer (viola) ; Alfred De Reyghere (viola) ; Ivor James (violoncello) ; Helen Just
(violoncello)
The second of Brahms's two sextets, begun in September, 1864, and completed in May, 1865, is to some extent a memorial to his love for Agathe von Siebold, daughter of a professor at Gottingen University. Brahms parted from Agathe in January, 1859, being unwilling to marry, but both appear to have suffered keenly from the breach for years afterwards. Speaking of the G major Sextet to Gansbacher, Brahms said, ' Here I have freed myself from my last love'. '. It will be noticed that at one point in the first movement the violins three times ' spell out' the nearest possible equivalent of Agathe's name: the notes A-G-A-D-H (i.e. B natural)-E.

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.
