: THREE CHRISTIAN VIRTUES

' Chastity'
The Rev. Father Vincent McNabb ,
OP.
Last year Father McNabb gave three talks on ' Three Common Graces’— Truthfulness, Kindness, and Courtesy. This year, on three consecutive Sundays beginning today, he is to give talks on three more specially Christian vittues-Chastity, Humility, and Obedience.
Father Vincent McNabb is one of the best-known preachers of the day. He has a wide and sympathetic following both within and beyond his own communion. The late G. K. Chesterton wrote of him: ' He is one of the few great men I have met in my life.... great in many ways, mentally and morally and mystically and practically ... Nobody who ever met or saw or heard Father McNabb has ever forgotten him.'

: CHAMBER MUSIC

Miriam Licette (soprano)
The London String Trio:
Jean Pougnet (violin) ;
William Primrose (viola) ;
Anthony Pini (violoncello)
Jean Francaix belongs to the postwar generation of French composers. He was born at Le Mans in 1912, but later went to Paris, where he studied at the Conservatoire under Nadia Boulanger.
' Francaix's particular competence', writes Alan Frank , ' is revealed in the layout and balance of his works, which are planned and scored with meticulous care. The string trio is a medium fraught with dangers. The main difficulty is its bottom-heaviness, in that viola and cello overpower one fiddle. Francaix rather evades the issue by liberal use of double-stopping and by keeping the viola in its higher register.'

: AS I LOOK BACK

Maurice Healy
Nephew of Tim Healy and godson of William O'Brien , Maurice Healy was naturally brought up to take an interest in politics, and when he looks back he sees in the far distance of memory a tiny figure who was taught to say ' Boo for Balfour' before he could say ' Papa ' or ' Mama '. But by no means all his memories are political. He can look back, for instance, to the occasion when he sang ' The Wearin' of the Green ' to Cardinal Mercier. A great number of listeners will look forward to this talk by an amusing and expert broadcaster.

: A RURAL RIDE RENEWED

An exploration by S. P. B. Mais of one of William Cobbett 's rides in Wiltshire
One hundred and twelve years ago William Cobbett wrote of one of his ' Rural Rides ' in the heart of England, ' I never before saw anything to please me like this Valley of the Avon.' Today S. P. B. Mais , who, with his gusto, his curiosity about life, and his extensive knowledge of the countryside of England, has something of William Cobbett in him, is going to explore this valley again with a volume of Cobbett in his pocket. In this short programme he will not only speak himself, but it is hoped that he will be able to bring to the microphone the voices of some of the people living in the Avon Valley.

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.
