' Districts of England '
' The South-West Corner-I, The
Cornish Scene '
In this series, planned by Miss Charlotte A. Simpson , Schools heard last term all about the Wiltshire Downs, about the Lake District, and the Fen District, and now, in the first three talks tor this new term, they are to hear about Cornwall. There is no county in Britain more individual ; and nobody knows it better than that well-known Cornish-man and Cornish writer, A. K. Hamilton Jenkin, who is famous for his Cornish broadcasts.
He is to give all three talks, and in this, his first, he is to set the scene
Schools will get a bird's-eye view ot that romantic county and its characteristics, which are so very different from any other. They will be able to compare their own county with it. Is it dryer or more wet ? Do the flowers they find come out earlier or later-?
Are the stiles the same ? Are they made of stone ? And what about the trees ? In what, parts of Cornwall are they found growing to their natural heights, and in what parts are they dwarfed Do they vary like this in your own county?

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.
