6—' The Kirk Session then'
G. S. PRYDE
The object of this talk is to explain how Scotland, hampered by narrow conceptions of governmental responsibility, permitted and encouraged the Reformed Kirk to cater for such social needs as were then recognised. The Kirk Session was a convenient administrative unit; it was popularly elected, it was trusted ; there was approximately one to each parish, and there was, owing to the defective machinery of local government, no possible alternative. But the Disruption of 1843 destroyed the universality and efficiency of the Kirk-Session system. Other arrangements had to be made. Poor relief in rural districts was entrusted to parochial boards in 1845, that were transformed into parish councils in 1894. Education was put under popular elected school boards in 1872, Episcopalian and Roman Catholic schools being left to their respective denominations. Schools boards survived until 1918, parish councils until 1929.

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.
