Travel Talk: Southern Europe—: 10: Through the Gulf of Corinth to Attica


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.
W. K. Duckett
Today Mr. Duckett is to take listeners on a Greek steamer through the Gulf of Corinth. On their right, on the north coast of Peloponnesus, or Southern Greece, they will pass Patras, from which currants and wine are exported all over the world. As the voyage continues, Mr. Duckett will point out the beautiful scenery, narrow fringing lowlands and steep mountain-sides, hill pastures and olive groves ; and so he will bring them to Corinth and take them on to Athens. He will show them the Acropolis, which is possibly over 3,500 years old, and he will talk of modern things too.


Speaker: W. K. Duckett

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
