: 'Coal v. Oil' A Discussion

A MOTION in Parliament is to be promoted by Ernest Brown , M.P.,
Minister of Mines, to give a preference for home-produced light oil. The bill not only provides for a preference in respect of light hydrocarbon oils manufactured in the United Kingdom from coal, shale, or peat indigenous to the United Kingdom or from products produced from these substances ; but provides for the collection of information as to the production of such oil.
This evening's broadcast discussion will deal with some of the issues that this motion is likely to raise.

THIS SONATA has not only a title, but a programme—the only one of the sonatas that has-though considered as programme it is altogether lacking in interest 'and substance. It was written for an occasion-as a musical tribute in fact, to his patron the Archduke, with whose political troubles Beethoven was in sympathy. Rudolph was under orders to leave Vienna, but it was hoped he would quickly return. The whole programme, therefore, is contained in the words ' departure, exile, and return '. It is true some attempt has been made to illustrate. the feelings conjured up by these words, but the sonata, as music, is not in the least affected by the programmatical side issue.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
