This is a broadcast in the series of Friday Feature Programmes and Topical Talks in which, week by week, aspects of the modern world are explained to listeners.
This week's programme will be an imaginary visit to a shipyard, where a commentator will take the children on a tour of the yard. He will explain the various processes, and listeners will meet, as it were, various people connected with the building of different types of ships on the Clyde, from the time when the raw material is brought from the steel mill until the ship sails on her maiden voyage.
Records made in the shipyard will be played to add reality to the broadcast.

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.
