The Weather House


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.
Electricity Supply'
IN HIS TALK tonight R. A. Watson Watt will discuss the electricity supply, and will show how the Cumulus cloud, the 'ordinary lift' of the Weather House, may develop into an ' express lift', Cumulo-Nimbus cloud, to the accompaniment of spectacular displays of electrical energy in the thunderstorm.
Some of the known facts about thunderstorms will be mentioned, as well as the many things we have still to learn about them. And a word may be said about the manner in which thunderstorms send out their own wireless signals.
In the second part of his ta!k, the anticyclone will be discussed, and stress will be laid on the difference between the ideal holiday anticyclone and the rather gloomy anticyclone of winter. Finally, there may be time to look at some further reasons why the forecaster's lot is not a happy one.

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.
