By CATHERINE CARSWELL
Answered by Sheriff J. G. JAMESON
This is the first of a series of talks in which a number of good haters and ' bonnie fichters ' have been invited to attack various revered and well-founded institutions of modem life. The ritual centring round January 25 has a long tradition behind it and bids fair to endure as long as Scotsmen read Burns. Catherine Carswell wants to abolish it: Sheriff Jameson will enter a plea for its retention. Mrs. Carswell, with commendable prudence, is speaking from London. The result should entertain the listener as much as it stimulates his interest.
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.
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.
