Peoples of the World—5
'Island People of the Pacific Ocean'
RAYMOND FIRTH , Ph.D.
This afternoon Dr. Raymond Firth is to talk about the inhabitants of an island called Tikopia, in the Solomon Islands Protectorate. Dr. Firth spent twelve months on the island, for nine of which he did not see a single white man. Tikopia has only about 1,200 people, who are extremely primitive-in fact, they are about the only really primitive Polynesians left. They practise their old religion and are quite isolated. No traders go there. Perhaps a missionary boat puts in once a year, and a Government boat once in three or four years.
Yet they flourish on this beautiful volcanic island, surrounded by its coral reef. The natives' clothing is made of bark cloth and their houses of sago thatch. They grate coconut for pudding and cook it with hot stones. They dance on the beach like children, and at night they go out in their outrigger canoes and net flying fish by torchlight.

' How Birds help the Farmer'
RICHARD MORSE
When farmers shoot the birds they see feeding among their crops, they often unknowingly shoot their best friends. Not many men care to work for sixteen hours a day, but birds do that willingly, destroying insects, grubs, and other creatures in countless numbers.
Unless these pests were kept in check, the farmers' crops would be ruined. Nor does the good work of the birds cease at the coming of darkness. It is then that such hunters as the owls and the nightjars come from their hiding places, and chase and destroy the enemies of the crops white the farmer is sleeping.
This, in brief, is what Mr. i...chard
Morse is going to talk to you about this afternoon.

ERNEST READ, F.R.A.M.
Today Mr. Ernest Read is to deal with another kind of tune-making. He will encourage you to move in the scale by seconds, and so produce an easy, flowing melody. Movement by seconds means that you go from one step of a scale to the next, either above or below.

' This and That'
JOHN HILTON
Listeners will remember John Hilton 's talk a few weeks ago about the possibility of giving pensions to men at the age of sixty in order to let younger men take their places. He invited you to draw up your own Act of Parliament with all the clauses indicating what should be done, and suggested that you gave your ideas of how strictly the law should be enforced, of where the money was to come from, and of how effective the scheme was likely to be in reducing unemployment.
He was delighted to receive over 300 letters in response. He has now analysed them, and this afternoon he will devote his talk to them. John Hilton will be featured next week ip ' People you Hear'.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
