: 'THE WORLD'S WARIEST QUARRY'

Martin Stephens
Which is the most difficult animal to stalk ? The number of big-game hunters who have hunted in four continents is comparatively limited, but Martin Stephens is one of them, and so he is. able to make his comparisons at first hand, and to award the palm after discussing most of the little-known species.

' The Orient-In Cairo '
K. H. HUGGINS
K. H. Huggins who today gives the first of two travel talks on Egypt is in charge of the geography broadcasts for Scottish schools, and is a lecturer in geography in the University of Glasgow. Cairo is one of the many cities in which East is said to meet West, and is therefore a fitting point from which to start a year of travel talks on the Orient. Mr. Huggins will take his listeners with him past mosques and through bazaars into the narrow by-ways of the city, and from Cairo itself to the wealthy suburbs by the banks of the Nile, a few miles beyond which the desert starts.

Commander A. B. CAMPBELL
(Reminiscences of ocean travel inspired by the launching of the Queen
Elizabeth)
Today Commander A. B. Campbell will take the opportunity afforded by the launching of the Queen Elizabeth to indulge in a few reminiscences of a lifetime afloat. From the days when he served in the Orient, the first steam ship to carry mails to Australia, Commander Campbell has sailed on almost every sea. He has been through the Suez Canal sixty-three times, crossed the Equator seventy times, and travelled three times round the world, each time in a different way, and has seen the change from single-screw to twinscrew ships, the growth of the refrigerator system from the days of salt pork and bully beef, and the gradual replacement of reciprocating machinery by turbines.

V. Sackville-West
V. Sackville-West, who is today giving the last talk in this series, is of course well known not only as both novelist and poet, but as a great literary devotee of the countryside. She has been described by Hugh Walpole as ' a woman with every sort of talent', which no one can doubt who has read works so greatly different as ' The Edwardians ' and ' The Land ', her great poem of the countryside. Many listeners will remember the talks she gave recently on gardens in the West of England.

: ' MY BEST PICTURE STORY'

Charles Holliday
The photographs of the German occupation of Brussels that appeared in the London Press a few days after the event, made, as many will remember, news-picture history, in August, 1914. They were indeed unique since they were taken by a raw young photographer without a single foreign word at his command, and after the expulsion of all foreign newspapermen by the Germans. Today Charles Holliday comes to the microphone to tell the story of the nerve-racking three days in which he took these pictures — history recorded from behind Venetian blinds, from behind window curtains, and from under a mackintosh.

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 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 find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

This is a historical record of both 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.
