2.5 Travel Talk
' Northern Nigeria: on the Edge of the Desert'
C. D. FORDE , Ph.D.
Dr. Forde is Professor of Geography and Anthropology in the University of Wales. It was he who actually planned all the Travel Talks scheduled in the Schools syllabus for this year. What is even more important in connection with this talk is that he spent a considerable time in Nigeria in 1935. So that he will have much to tell of the peoples who live under British rule on the edge of the desert. He will take you with him over the most recently opened section of the imperial airway, the branch that connects Khartoum, on the great England-to-Cape route, with Kano, capital of Northern Nigeria.

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.
