: 'OUR NEW LISTENERS'

During the last five months the BBC has undertaken an extension of its news service in foreign languages to the Arab-speaking countries and to the republics of Central and South America. This involves broadcasting to people in some twenty-five different countries and using three languages: Arabic, Spanish, and Portuguese.
The aim of this series of talks is to give listeners a bird's-eye view of the geographical and historical background of the people concerned.
The last talk, this evening, will be given by H. P. Smolka , on Mexico and Central America.

: The Chartists March

Episodes in the famous working-men's movement to establish their rights a hundred years ago by J. H. Miller
London, 1837: Bronterre O'Brien and William Lovett, The London Working-Men's Association
Glasgow: Meetings on the Green. Physical force (From Scottish)
Manchester: Fergus O'Connor and Rev. Reynar Stephens address the operatives
(From North)
Birmingham: 1839. The National Convention. Moral force. Julian Harnay (From Midland)
Wales: Prison Break. Physical defeat (From Welsh)
London: The convention dissolved. Finale
With a section of the BBC Men's Chorus
Music composed by Benjamin Britten
Production by John Pudney
The first movement for the betterment of working Conditions in Great Britain was something of a nineteenth-century bogey. Like the threat of 'Boney' a few years earlier, it was for a time a constant fear to those in possession '. Roughly a hundred years ago it hung over the industrial districts like an ominous, sooty sky which could not be dispersed...
From this distance of time, the People's Charter - with its demands for universal manhood suffrage, secret ballot, salaries for M.P.s. and general elections each year; that any person should be eligible to stand for Parliament; and that all constituencies should be of equal size - does not appear unreasonable. All the demands but one have since been granted in peaceful, progressive legislation. It is not easy now to understand why there should have been so much alarm.
The story of this nation-wide movement will be treated in this programme geographically, showing it as a force in men's minds not only in London but in Scotland, Wales, Manchester, and Birmingham. In words based on records and reports of the time, these districts will speak for themselves, unifying the common theme and bringing the action into dramatic and just perspective.

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.
