CHRISTIAN AND LIBERAL VALUES

A series of four talks
3-The Christian Faith and Liberal Values
by Canon Charles Raven
Canon Raven takes up some of the points made last week by Sir William Hamilton Fyfe about the reasons why liberal values teem to be losing their hold over the people of our generation. He examines these reasons and shows that they are iargely out of date, indeed that a return to Christian standards is beginning. This should involve acceptance of the Christian faith and the renewal of energy and unity in the Christian Church. Canon Raven is himself a liberal theologian and has made notable contributions to the understanding of the relation between science and religion. He brings this wide knowledge to bear on the intricate problem of the relation between Christian and liberal values.

THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

Appeal on behalf of Queen Elizabeth's Training College for the Disabled, Leatherhead, and St. Loyes College for the Training and Rehabilitation of the Disabled, Exeter, by Peter Scott, M.B.E., D.S.C .
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to [address removed]
Since these two Colleges opened (the first of their kind in this country) in 1935 and 1937 respectively, some 6,000 men, women, and juveniles, all physically handicapped, most of them with major disabilities, have been trained to hold their own in industry. They are thus helping to increase productivity, which is vital to the nation's recovery and well-being.
The Colleges are voluntary undertakings, deriving no benefit from the National Health Service. Funds are therefore urgently needed to meet rising costs, enable the Colleges to continue their constructive and humanitarian work. and expand their activities to meet the needs of every type of disabled person; but above all, to give an ever-increasing number of handicapped people a chance to become self-supportingi

CHILDREN'S HOUR

' Tarn, short for Tamburlain': a new series of stories, written and told by Mary Patchett. 2 — ' The Yearling'followed by ' The Keys of England'
A serial play in six parts by Aubrey Feist
' He who holds the Tower of London has the Keys of England in his hand '
3 — ' The Water Dungeon '
Production by David Davis
There is fascinating detective work to be done at the Tower of London. Old books tell of secret passages and whispering galleries like the one from which Martin and Nicholas spied on Father Pole, but some of the darkest and most sinister corners have disappeared for ever. The terrible Flint Tower (Lytle Helle) has been twice rebuilt since Armada Year; and although, if you visit -the fortress, you will still find a Develin Tower, in 1588 this name belonged to what is now the Devereux. Tradition says that between these two towers-the Flint and its neighbour, the old Develin — lay that black and noisome water-dungeon known as the Pit.

3 — ' The Painted Bit'
Characters in order of speaking:
Incidental music arranged by Marr Mackie
Beauty Cecil, of Queen Victoria's First Life Guards, has seemingly retrieved his fallen fortunes by winning the Grand Military Stakes on his famous grey, Forest King. But his weakling younger brother, Berkeley, is still in deep financial waters, and from an old promise Beauty must try to help him. The only way in which he can do so is to enter Forest King for the Prix de Dames at Baden, backing himself to win with everything he possesses. Meanwhile his secret flirtation with Beatrice, Lady Guenevere, has been continuing. They have gone for a moonlight drive through Richmond Park-and Beauty's carriage-horses (ex-hunters) have scented the Richmond stags and run amok and are making wildly for the river and certain death. Can Beauty hold them, and if there is an accident how can he avoid publicity for his clandestine affair with the famous society hostess?

BBC SCOTTISH ORCHESTRA

(Leader, J. Mouland Begbie )
Conductor, Ian Whyte
Leonard Cassini (piano)
Vitezslav Novak (1870-1949) adopted music as a profession on the advice of Dvorak, to whom he wem for composition lessons. His Piano Concerto was written when he was nineteen, and he himself played the soio part when he graduated at the Prague Conservatoire as both composer and piamst. The work was played in public in Prague in 1915, but believing it to be immature, Novak discouraged further performances. Leonard Cas-sima holds the opinion that the Concerto, though romantic in style and unlike, Novák’s later music, is well worth revival. Harold Ruilsnd

THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

Appeal on behalf of Dr. Graham's Homes, Kalimpong, India, by Rumer Godden
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to Rumer Godden , [address removed]
From poverty and despair to the love and care of a Christian family, and training to become a valuable citizen-this is the hope that Dr. Graham's Homes in Kalimpong hold out to 500 of India's poorest Anglo-Indian children.
Founded in 1900 by this great missionary, and one-time Moderator of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland, the Homes still need £ 60,000 a year for their vital work, and of this £ 23,000 must come from private subscriptions and donations.






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.
