The last of the series
The Murray
For Russell Braddon travelling the Murray -Australia's greatest river-offered an opportunity to rediscover lost feelings about his homeland.
He begins on foot, paddles his own canoe, then takes a ride on an assortment of boats - a miniature paddle-steamer, the Emmy Lou , then Paddy Hogg 's Merrilinda, and finally, the Murray Explorer.
'One hundred years hence,' says Braddon, 'Australia may have become Asian, or Russian, or unequivocally vulgar.... But the Murray will still be flowing unconcernedly from the mountains to her rendezvous with the indifferent sea.' Written and presented by RUSSELL BRADDON

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.
