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.

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.

The Highlanders of bygone days put amongst their most valued possessions their weapons and accoutrements, which combined artistry and practical use to a remarkable degree. Ian Finlay, Assistant Keeper in the Art Department of the Royal Scottish Museum, Edinburgh, speaks of an outstanding example of such craftsmanship - pistols made between the middle of the seventeenth and the beginning of the nineteenth centuries in the little village of Doune, at the foot of the Grampians.

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.
