'Native Farmers of New Zealand'
RAYMOND FIRTH, Ph.D.
Last week Dr. Raymond Firth told you about a Polynesian people who live in a tropical climate, in the island of Tikopia. Today he is to speak about a section of this great Polynesian race, the Maoris, who live in a temperate climate in New Zealand, to which they came in canoes hundreds of years ago.
Today they are mainly dairy farmers.
Dr. Firth will tell you about their clothes, their food, their love of the land. He will discuss their tribal pride and the influence of their chiefs ; their native Dance ; their slight contact with the outside world and their friendliness nevertheless with Europeans.

' Rooks and Rookeries'
ERIC PARKER
Rooks are crows, but crows aren't rooks, and there's a world of difference. Both belong to the crow family, but so do magpies, jays, and ravens. Rooks are friends of the farmers, but crows are their enemies, for the first eat grubs that destroy the crops, while the true crow loves nothing better than eggs and chicks.
Though there are grey or hooded crows to be found in Britain, the crow more commonly seen in England is the black or carrion. And one of the things Mr. Eric Parker is going to point out to you today is that the black crow and the rook, that are so wide apart, are very much alike to look at. But true crows are unsociable birds and build isolated nests, whilst rooks, as you know, love crowds. They go about in crowds ; they nest in crowds ; at evening the sky may be black with them.
The same old nests ; perhaps a stick or two more. The same old colony in the same old tree. The same old cawing. It is of the benevolent rook and his massed family life you are to hear this afternoon.

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, and programmes to purchase from BBC Store and other providers.

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.
