: Northern Eloquence-3

The Opening Speech of the Midlothian Campaign delivered by the Rt. Hon. W. E. Gladstone at Edinburgh,
November 25, 1879
EACH INSTALMENT of ' Northern Eloquence' is devoted to a reading—or rather a dramatic recitation--of a speech by one of the great Northern orators. Gladstone was born in Liverpool and died at Hawarden, although the eloquence manifested in the speech to be broadcast tonight is European rather than distinctively' North Country'. The first of the Midlothian election addresses, it was originally made at the St. George Street Music Hall, Edinburgh. It lasted for over three hours. But by judicious cutting it has been found possible to compress it into twenty minutes. Mr. Lloyd Pearson will broadcast the speech in the proper Gladstonian baritone.


Unknown: W. E. Gladstone

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.
