A debate on the motion
'That Land Settlement Offers an Effective Alternative to Mass Unemployment '
Chairman, LORD PHILLIMORE
For the Motion :
S. L. BENSUSAN and ROBERT ALDINGTON
Against the Motion :
C. S. ORWIN and F. S. MILLIGAN
This is one of the debates arising out of the series of talks which
Mr. Ben susan has given after a rural survey of the Midland counties. It is topical just now in view of the considered report made for the Carnegie Trustees on the subject of land settlement. Lord Phillimore is much interested in the subject, but will be an impartial Chairman. Mr. Orwin is Director of the Agricultural Economics Research Bureau of the University of Oxford ; he has been president of the Agriculture Section of the British Association, and has written a number of books, including the recent ' Back to the Land ', in which he collaborated with W. F. Darke. Mr. Aldington has been farming i n the Vale'of Evesham for about twenty years. He was formerly a railway guard. In the Labour interest he has contested the Evesham Division. Mr. Milligan comes from the North ; he has seen a good deal of urban unemployment in a social service centre on Merseyside.

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.

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.
