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.

Leonard Salzedo's Divertimento for wind quintet was written last March for the Marsyas Wind Ensemble. It consists of seven movements: Introduction, Toccata, Air, Ostinato, Elegy, Gavotte and Musette, and Rondo.
Hindemith's Septet, which is in five movements, was first performed in 1948 in Milan by members of the Teatro Nuovo Orchestra.
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.

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

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.
