: PROGRESS-2

Twentieth-Century Pessimism
Edwin Muir
The nineteenth century believed firmly in the reality and inevitability of human progress, and held hopes which were probably exaggerated. In the twentieth century there has been a reaction to a pessimism which is perhaps equally exaggerated. The purpose of this series of talks, of which this is the second, is to discuss what we mean by progress ; whether history does indeed indicate a trend towards a better and more satisfying human life; and, if so, how progress is achieved.
At the end of each talk Dr. H. A.
Mess will briefly link up what has been said with the other talks in the series. This, it is hoped, will make the discussion in the Discussion Groups more valuable.
Last week listeners heard about progress in the nineteenth century, about doubts and disappointments and the shadow of the European War. Today Edwin Muir , the well-known author and book critic of The Listener, will discuss the plunge into the abyss-the Great War and the reaction to it since.

: 'HOW I BEGAN'

John Hilton
One of the most striking life stories that appeared in the series ' People You Hear ' was that of John Hilton , who began three times. He was disqualified after winning a scholarship; he was without the money to renew the patent of an invention now in world-wide use ; his health broke down. No man ever rose so indomitably from humble beginnings ; no series of talks ever gave more cheer to a large number of listeners than his weekly ' This and That' to unemployed people. John Hilton has been Professor of Industrial Relations at Cambridge since 1931, but perhaps he is even prouder of his Chairmanship of the Advisory Committee of Fellowship House-a club that he started with others for the unemployed at Cambridge.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
