FROM his island of Jethou, Mr. Compton Mackenzie has, as it were, as good a view of the Channel Islands as a man might have. Fortunate, indeed, he is, to be able to enjoy these happy islands from the inside instead of, as with us poor occasional holiday-makers, from the outside. Who has not wished, when spring first comes, to be free to go where those fields are full of flowers and where already it is warm ? But it is the people who live in the Channel Islands of whom, also, Mr. Mackenzie will be able to tell us. And no one who has heard any of his broadcast talks will need reminding of the charm with which, by virtue of his retentive memory and 'sensitive style, he can invest his words over the microphone.

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.
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.
