Mr W.S. Chadwick: Tales of the Elephant Trail


We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
At some time or other, most boys pass through a stage in which the 'mighty hunter' - the Allan Quartermaine of fiction - represents their ideal man. Mr Chadwick has a strong claim to the title. A Londoner by birth, he went to South Africa in 1900, during the Boer War, and spent the next eight years in various bodies of mounted police. In 1909 he was trading and hunting in Matabeleland; in 1911, in the Belgian Congo; and 1914 found him in Barotseland. After the war (when he fought in German South-West and German East Africa) he rode, hunted, traded, and explored in Nyasaland, Portuguese East Africa, Rhodesia, and Angola. Since 1926 he has been a journalist, author and lecturer, and he has recently been lecturing in Copenhagen.

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.
