Child-centred Education by G. H. Bantock Reader in Education
In the University of Leicester
Mr. Bantock believes that the progressive' tendencies of education represented by the term ' child-centred' may have gone too far in some of our schools. The fallacy. of the Rousseau-Froebel line of thinking can, to my mind, be shown from the fact that they were not able to live up to their own precepts.'
A topical programme on the arts, literature, and entertainment
Three speakers comment on whatever seems of most immediate interest in the world of the various arts: exhibitions, new productions in the theatre, new films and books.
The programme includes a contribution on the play Summer of the Seventeenth Doll by the Australian playwright Ray Lawler.
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.
