CLIFFORD COLLINSON: Coco-nuts on Coral Islands
Most of you at some time or another have shied at coconuts and knocked one down. You know what the shell looks like, and how if you borrow a penknife you can pierce one of the ' eyes and get a drink of ' milk '. And you know-that the kernel is white and quite delicious...
This morning Clifford Collinson is to tell you, if George will let him, how the kernel is dried and broken, and then known as copra, which is exported for commerce. The next time you wash you will probably be making use of copra or coconut, for it is used largely in the manufacture of soap.
Today's talk is to be about coconuts on coral islands. And you will hear what the Solomon Islands are like.
One hopes there won't be a monkey there to throw down a coconut and biff George in the eye.

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.
