THE ARCTIC TODAY

Synopsis

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.
Twenty Years of British
Exploration
3—'Young Men and Dogs '
Charles Elton
A new stage in Arctic exploration began early in the 1920's, when a party of young men, still at Oxford, turned their attention to the large island of Spitsbergen. A large part of their problem was organisational in the way of stimulating public interest, collecting funds, and so on, before the expeditions could actually take the field.
The man largely responsible for this work was George Binney , with whom in the North were several other men who later became well known, most of them in the world of science. One of these is the present speaker.

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.
