Regional Geography
' Peoples of the World'-I
' Forest Peoples of the Amazon Valley '
J. DUVAL RICE
This term these interesting talks will deal with the simpler communities in North and South America. Today Mr. J. Duval Rice is to describe the life and customs of the tribes that inhabit the dense forests of the Amazon valley. They live by fishing and hunting, for little or no cultivation is possible where impenetrable jungle creeps down to the water's edge.
There are some, such as the Tembé tribe, who have made contact with civilization; there are others, such as their neighbours, the Timbiras, who shun all contact with the outer world, and are dying out in consequence.

Nature Study
' Round the Countryside '-I
' Dawn and Evening Song '
NOBLE ROLLIN
Those who wish to hear the dawn chorus of birds at its best should go before daybreak to some wooded spot and wait in the cold and silence while night draws to an end. Then, as dawn comes, one after another, birds begin to call and sing as if to greet the coming day ; and as the light increases, their voices mingle in one great chorus, the dawn chorus of birds.
Which bird begins it ? The skylark is very often the first of the day singers, though the restless peewit may call long before. Later come the black-birds and thrushes, the mainstays in the mingling of voices. Without their help much of the effect would be lost.
In the evening the chorus is repeated as the light wanes, but the thrill is not the same. It is the song to a dying-day.....
Mr. Noble Rollin devotes his life to the study of birds at his bird research station in Northumberland, and Schools will remember the two talks he gave last term, ' Feathers ' and ' Young Birds '.

Part I: Forces that Mould our Lives
2-' Instinct '
H. A. MESS , Ph.D.
Man inherits strong tendencies to behave in specific ways. His instincts are modified by thought, but remain powerfully operative. They are expressed not only directly, but in many indirect ways. Pugnacity, for example, can express itself in games and in propaganda. Curiosity is the root of science.
The instincts vary very little from generation to generation, but the mode of expression can vary a great deal. We are free, within wide limits, to alter human behaviour.
Such is the synopsis of the second of Dr. H. A. Mess 's six talks in which he is examining some of the social factors influencing our conduct.

In their Eighth Edition with CLAUDE GARDNER
EFFIE ATHERTON
BRIAN LAWRENCE
JEAN COLIN
RONALD HILL
MARION DAWSON
WILFRID THOMAS
THE B.B.C. VARIETY ORCHESTRA
Under the direction of KNEALE KELLEY
Devised and Produced by MAX KESTER and BRYAN MICHIE
This is the eighth edition of this popular concert party, which may be said to be home-grown. Clever artists, team work, and originality of material have combined to make it one of the most likeable of the regular broadcasts.
It was first produced in July last year, and Claude Gardner , Effie Ather ton, and Ronald Hill have never missed a show. Marion Dawson , appearing tonight for the first time as a member of the regular team, broadcast with them once before as a guest artist. She is a very popular North Country comedienne.
Many of the new songs that have been given have afterwards been published and have become big successes. Much of the material has been selected from the abundance sent in. Tonight there will be three or four new sketches.
The Air-do-Wells broadcast in the Regional programme last night

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.
