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

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.
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.
