Art and the Nazi

A talk by Ian Finlay
In his talk this afternoon Ian Finlay is to throw new light on a rather dark subject and reveal some amusingly interesting sidelights on Hitler's career. For instance, there is the suggestion that Nazism might have been born on the day that Hitler learned that he had failed in the entrance examination for the Vienna Academy of Arts - the Fuhrer's first failure! It is not only the art of painting that comes under scrutiny, but music too, and reasons are analysed for Hitler's passion for Wagner.

North of the Tweed

Talk by Ian Finlay
Ian Finlay, journalist, art critic, and broadcaster, steps into the monthly t Mdi lion of 'North of the Tweed' which has been, so competently built by George Blake. These soliloquies on Scottish affairs might be said to have touched the peak of good 'regional broadcasting', and those who have heard Finlay at the microphone will probably agree that he is just the man to maintain a standard of Scottish interest that is also acceptable ' South of the Tweed .
Finlay was born in New Zealand of Scottish parents, and was educated at Edinburgh. He has contributed to numerous periodicals and journals, writing chiefly on Scottish art, the importance of form and design in industry, and - his favourite subject - the infinite possibilities of museums in popular education.

' John Paul Jones ' : talk by Ian Finlay
Smuggler, slaver, pirate, buccaneer, admiral, founder of the United States Navy, Paul Jones is today most generally known only as a vague character after whom, for some obscure reason, a dance has been called. John Paul of Kircudbright in Scotland was far from a vague character. At an early age he was forced to run away to sea owing to his having been mixed up with a smuggling gang and being in danger from the ' Redcoats '. Born a nobody, he worked his way up through a life of gay adventure to a position which found him the friend of Lafayette and Louis XVI, comrade of Benjamin Franklin, and the first sailor of the U.S. Navy.

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.
