2.5 Travel Talks
In the Rain Forest (Guiana)
Talks this term will follow the summer sun and will be given about those places where days are lengthening while ours in Britain grow shorter. Listeners will sail to the tropic seas and reach the insect-haunted gloom of the South American forest, and then come out into the glaring sunlight of the campos. They will climb the High Andes and go down to the Pacific, and when they have travelled the whole length of South American plains, they will take to the son again and hear how the longest summer day of December is spent in the Antarctic.
Last week listeners were in the tropic seas ; today Clifford Collin son, a favourite with schools, and Paul Richards , one of the naturalists of the 1929 Hingston Expedition to British Guiana, are to conduct them through a 'rain forest '. They will meet land crabs, Howler monkeys, sloths, and humming birds, and explore the two different worlds in British Guiana-first on the ground, and then among the tree-tops.

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.
