A Viking Settlement in Caithness
A. 0. Curie, C.V.O., LL.D.
Dr. Curie, who was formerly Director of the Royal Scottish Museum and the National Museum of Antiquities, has excavated widely in Scotland, notably at Traprain Law and in the Shetlands. His most recent discovery has been in Caithness and it \ " be of this principally that he /ill speak.


Its Meaning and Aims
The Rev. E. J. Hagan , O.B.E.
The World Conference on Faith and Order brings many distinguished churchmen to Edinburgh — from Scotland, England, Wales, Ireland, the Dominions, most European countries, the United States, and elsewhere. Listeners may wonder what precisely has brought these men to their midst. It will be the aim of the Rev. E. J. Hagan to satisfy their curiosity on this score. In the meantime, it is perhaps sufficient to quote as an illustration of their objective: We do not meet at Edinburgh as an international congress of theologians assembled to enjoy the intellectual stimulus of discussion. We meet as representatives of different Christian churches moved by a common determination to discover how far loyalty to truth demands that our disagreements on the subject of grace should continue to keep us from full union and communion with one another'.

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.
