The Return of Discovery II
Towards the end of May, Discovery II arrived back at St. Catherine's Dock, London, from her fourth voyage to the Antarctic on behalf of the Discovery Research Committee acting on behalf of the Falkland Islands Government. Mr. Clowes, who went to the Antarctic as hydrologist on her last voyage and has been studying in his laboratory what was,brought back in 1935, will tell listeners why the Discovery goes to the Antarctic, what the voyage is like, what everyone does, and what clothes they take with them. He will have many interesting things to say about whales, and adventures, and the joy of getting home. He was at the dock the other day to welcome the Discovery back, and will tell some stories about this last trip, in addition to bringing to the microphone the Chief Officer of the Discovery, and also a scientist whose special study has been whales. Finally he will tell about the work that begins after her return-collating and studying specimens in the Natural History Museum.

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.
