A talk by W. H. G. Armytage
This week marks the fiftieth anniversary of the death of A. J. Mundella (July 22. 1897), who served as a member of the Liberal ministries of both Gladstone and Lord Rosebery. He is chiefly remembered for his tireless advocacy of compulsory education, and for his work towards legalising the Trades Unions. It is not so well known that he was one of the pioneers in the mass manufacture of fashioned stockings, and that from this period in his life can be traced most of his ' radical ' ideas. This view of him by W. H. G. Armytage , who is a lecturer at the University of Sheffield, also throws light on the financial scandal which drove him from office

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.
