BRIAN LUNN: Snow Wings '
Here is a ski-runner's encyclopaedia, telling the tyro everything from what skis are, to what you do with them, and what you may expect them, or not expect them, to do with you.
It seems that it was the English who first made ski-running popular, bringing the pastime from the Norwegian valleys to the Alps not more than about forty years ago. Mr. Brian Lunn , an experienced ski-runner in a noted family, a brother of the well-known Arnold Lunn , and a member of the famous English Club-the Kandahar Club, with headquarters at Mürren— describes several different qualities of snow, so important to the ski-runner ; two types of avalanche ; and gives a vivid account of a typical day's tour over the Langenalm.
He has a love of the game and shows it in this talk. You seem to see the ' crouching figure, the hands almost touching the snow ... changing his direction like a trout in a stream;' and you wish you were there. You seem to hear the ' crack like a .pistol shot ' that tells you you have sprung a slab avalanche which will probably kill you ... And then it's more pleasant to be listening in a chair.

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.
