'Wheels in Spring'
NEVILL WHALL (Hodites)
Handy to the cathedral city of Wells, where the swans in the moat ring a bell for their dinner, rise the green Mendip hills; and on another side lies Cheddar. Ten miles away runs the Cheddar Gorge, with the highest limestone cliffs in the country. Between them, up a wonderful winding road, one may ascend to the summit of the Mendips.
Wookey Hole may lack the stalactites of the Cheddar Caves, but it is more unique because it still has water in it. Three miles south of Cheddar is Wedmore, where Alfred made peace with the Danes in 878. And near Black Down, the highest point of the Mendips, is Charterhouse-on-Mendip, with the remains of Roman lead-mines and amphitheatre.
This is the country that is the background of Nevill Whall 's talk this evening. To cycle over it must be child's play to one who has cycled with zest over the Stelvio Pass-the highest road pass in Europe. The approach of Easter marks the beginning of the cyclists' touring season, and if it is a time when those out of training get ' Easter knees', it is surely the best time to see the country.
Nevill Whall is the Assistant Secretary of the Cyclists' Touring Club, and writes for the C.7'.C. Gazette and for Cycling. His pen-name ' Hodites ' is familiar, and listeners will remember his sports talk last November, ' Cycling in High Places'. '.

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.
