An appeal on behalf of THE DIABETIC ASSOCIATION, by H. G. WELLS , D.Litt.
A Diabetic Association has been formed, under the Presidency of Mr. H. G. Wells , to safeguard the social and economic interests of diabetics throughout the country, and to promote the study of the causes and treatment of diabetes.
Although the Association is still in its infancy, much valuable work has been done, including the provision of holidays for poor diabetic children; owing to the necessity for special diets and insulin injections, these children would otherwise have been unable to obtain a holiday.
Two small grants have been made to workers engaged in diabetic research, and it is hoped that in the future it will be possible to endow a Research Fellowship. Contact has been made with similar organisations in different parts of the world, including the New York Diabetes Association.
Mr. Hugh Walpole is the Editor of the Diabetic Journal, which is published quarterly, and sent direct to all members of the Association.
Contributions will be gratefully received, and should be addressed to H. G. Wells , Esq., D.Litt., The Diabetic Association, [address removed]

Seventh Season-19
(solo violin)
(Section B)
Conductor, Sir ADRIAN BOULT Conducted by THE COMPOSER Bliss's 'Colour' Symphony was composed for the Three Choirs' Festival and was first performed in Gloucester Cathedral in 1922. The idea of using colours to denote the moods of music may appear arbitrarily fanciful rather than significant, but here the scheme is more than usually applicable. For example, one could readily associate the first movement (Purple) with pageantry, royalty, and death ; the second (Red) with revelry, courage, and magic ; the third (Blue) with deep water, skies, loyalty, and melancholy ; and the fourth (Green) with joy, youth, and victory. In
1932, however, Bliss revised the ' Colour' Symphony, including its orchestration and excluding the third movement.

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.
