Stories that are History
Tartar Invaders
Commanders, elders, and common people, know that God has given me the empire of the earth from the East to the West. Whoever submits to me shall be spared but those who resist, they shall be destroyed, they and their wives and children and servants.'
That was how Chingis Khan , or Ruler of the Tartars, wrote to his enemies. He meant what he said. He and his fierce people galloped and conquered their way right across Asia from their homes in the Far
East, as their kinsmen the Huns had done more than 800 years before.
Today's broadcast will tell you something about the terrible Ghingis Khan and his Tartar empire.

@ Extermination of Animals by Man
H. MUNRO Fox, F.R.S.
It was necessary to exterminate wolves in Britain because they were dangerous to men and cattle, and it would be a good thing if we could exterminate rats. But it is a thousand pities that birds such as the dodo and the great auk were exterminated. Seals and elephants have been saved by laws, and it is hoped that whales will be saved by a new agreement to protect them. In the past men did not care whether animals were exterminated or not ; nowadays people do not want wild animals to die out. This is the outline of Munro Fox 's talk today.

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.
