2.5 (-2.25) Life and Work in the British Empire-7
Life on a Cattle Ranch '
SCHOOLS know well enough that this talk this afternoon cannot be other than entertaining when it is to be given by Clifford Collinson , for, whether as himself or as that cheerful idiot ' George he is a personality.
Schools are to hear today that Collinson owns a wheat farm on the prairies of Saskatchewan which he wants to get rid of, and no doubt it was when he was fed up with wheat that he made a note or two on Canadian cowboys. He is going to tell you all about chaps (not yourselves, but furry leggings to pull over trousers) ; about lariats (ropes) ; and brightly-coloured neckerchiefs (to keep the sand from .the throat when riding a gallop).
And lots more about cowboys by a man who has been everywhere and done everything. A copra trader in the Cannibal Isles ; a shooter of alligators in the tropics, and of rapids in America ; a rider of surf-boards in the South Seas; a lecturer and entertainer to Schools.

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.
