: 'COUNTRY PLOYS'

B. E. Silcock
At all festive seasons the country folk, at least in the old days, had their customs, diversions, and pranks that made life lively in a way incomprehensible to the modern city dweller with his more artificial means of entertainment. Mrs.
Silcock can look back upon a lifetime's acquaintance with Scottish country life, and she will probably have something to say about her girlhood days in rural Aberdeenshire.

: ' AM I MY BROTHER'S KEEPER ?

' Home and Family '
A discussion under the Chairmanship of Lord Wark
If the lesson of responsibility, which is the main theme of this series, is not learned by parents and taught to their children, there is little prospect that it may be learned in the wider sphere of life beyond the four walls of the home.
In his introductory talk Lord
Wark pointed out that in our restless modern society the influence of the home seemed to he waning. Instead of being the centre of the family life it was becoming more and more the place where people slept and sometimes ate. Pleasures were being taken elsewhere.
This subject has been reserved until now as being the most appropriate for Christmas. It is also the last to be discussed in this series, for next Sunday Lord Wark gives his farewell talk.

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.

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.
