Third of six programmes devised and edited by Peter le Huray


Conductor: H. K. Andrews
Edited By: Peter Le Huray


Second of two talks by John Buckatzsch
The change in economic method from classical economics which is really a ' branch of philosophy ' to the study of national income and actual situations gives a hope that economics may become useful as an applied science. This was the question to which John Buckatzsch was devoting his attention during the last year of his life. These talks were recorded shortly before his death in August 1954.

A broadcast version of the sermon given at the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church of Ireland last year by the retiring Moderator, Principal J. E. Davey.
One of the strangest parables in the New Testament concerns the unscrupulous dealings of a servant who is about to lose his job. The parable concludes with the comment ' and the lord commended the unjust steward.' Principal Davey maintains that it was Jesus who commended him, and explains why.
The parable read by Robert Speaight (The recorded broadcast of May 12)

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.
