Down to the Sea in Ships-2


We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
' Sea Harvests - 1, Into Deep Water
From April to June this year eleven talks on Sea Communications dealt with everything appertaining to the Mercantile Marine. Today the series ' Down to the Sea in Ships ' passes on to fishing, and in an introductory talk Mr. Wynn Thomas is to describe the three divisions of the industry : inshore fishing, herring fishing, and trawling. He will show how they are related to each other, and in discussing some of the problems of marketing, he will stress the point that in spite of the name Sea Harvests, it is a case of reaping what you don't sow ; on the other hand it is the most difficult harvest to bring to market...
Mr. Wynn Thomas started at the Board of Education; went to the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries ; became Principal in the Fisheries Department; and is now Assistant Secretary on the Agricultural side of the Ministry. He has been joint secretary to each of the two fishery commissions : the Committee of the Fishery Industry of the Economic Advisory Council, and the Sea Fish Commission which has just published its report on white fish.
Eight weekly talks by various experts are to follow today's introduction ; then a feature programme and finally a summary will bring ' Sea Harvests ' to a close on October 2.

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.
