: TOWN AND COUNTRY

' Country into Town '
F. G. Thomas
This is the third of the new series in which F. G. Thomas is reviewing the very real problems of population drift in Britain today.
The towns themselves are spreading farther and farther over the countryside, and ribbon development is changing the face of the land and the lives of the people. The relationship between the townsmen and countrymen is constantly changing, and it is probably true that the two, year by year, come to know each other better.
In the studio this evening
F. G. Thomas hopes to have with him a number of town and country dwellers. These people will discuss why the city attracts the young countrymen, what is lacking in village life, and what kind of rural reform might be successful in keeping the English countryman on the land.

: NATIONAL SERVICE RALLY

at the Royal Albert Hall
Speeches by Sir Frank Bowater , the Lord
Mayor of London and The Right Hon. Sir John Anderson , G.C.B., G.C.S.I., G.C.I.E., M.P., Lord Privy Seal
In the Royal Albert Hall tonight will be gathered together representatives of the Metropolitan Boroughs, representatives of big commercial interests in London, and detachments of A.R.P. workers already enrolled to hear speeches by the Lord Mayor of London and the Lord Privy Seal, the Rt. Hon. Sir John Anderson. Both of these will be broadcast. Though the occasion may appear to be of interest to London only, the speeches will be directed to a much wider audience and their appeal will be nation-wide.
There will be music and community singing: the former arranged by Sir Walford Davies and played by the London Fire Brigade Band and the Metropolitan Police Band ; and something of this may be heard by listeners, together with a description of the scene. The Lord Mayor is due to speak at 8.15, and the Lord Privy Seal at 8.20. Among the distinguished audience present will be the Minister of Labour and the Rt. Hon. Herbert Morrison , Leader of the L.C.C.

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.
