Second of three programmes
Talk by A. Clark Smith
David Hume began his challenge to religion by questioning the arguments that were used in the eighteenth century to prove the existence of God. He does not deny the existence of God, but shows that the arguments for his existence are invalid. Mr. Clark Smith examines the Dialogues, The Natural History of Religion, and other studies, showing how Hume makes his case against religion-a case that has never been finally answered.
Talk by Sybil Wingate
The writer today has abandoned the public themes of the thirties in favour of the private theme, of which the Victorians were the great masters. The speaker believes there is a danger that instead of making a critical use of the past we shall merely furnish a certain number of ivory towers with the fashionable Victorian mahogany.
V. Sackville-West speaks about the writing of Orlando, the book in which Virginia Woolf was inspired by her own conception of the Sackville family, of Knole their family home, and of Miss Sackville-West herself. In the course of her talk Miss Sackville-West reads a passage from Orlando which does not appear in the printed version.

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.
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.
