: Mr. J. C. Stobart and Miss Mary Somerville, 'Some Rooks Worth Reading: "Round the World in Eighty Days''

Like Fenimore Cooper, Jules Verne is one of the authors dearest to the hearts of the boys of a generation or two ago. Amazingly prolific, one of the first authors to realize the fascination of science, gifted with an imagination that forestalled - in some respects with strange precision - the submarine and the helicopter, and a natural story-teller, he was an ideal author for boys. In 'Round the World in Eighty Days' he did not use his scientific imagination so freely as in, for instance, 'From the Earth to the Moon' or 'Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea,' but he wrote a rattling good story that still makes good reading when eighty days is time enough to make quite a leisurely journey round the world.

: Prof. V. H. Mottram, 'Present-day Problems of Food: (5) Our Daily Ration'

THIS is the fifth of Professor Mottram's series of talks on the scientific aspect of food.
To-day he will discuss the selection of the daily ration with a view to food values, and it is interesting to know that one can get a hundred calories by eating one medium-sized potato, half an ounce of butter, four-fifths of an ounce of cheese, half a glass of milk, one banana, six lumps of sugar, two small slices of white bread, half an-inch thick, or no fewer than a dozen oysters, if one's taste tends that way.

: DISCUSSION

on UNIVERSITY MEN IN BUSINESS between
Mr. ERNEST WALLS and Mr. J. MAYNARD KEYNES with Sir ERNEST BENN in the Chair
THE subject of this discussion is one of real importance at the present day, when University men are invading the domains even .of retail trade, and all those taking part are particularly qualified to discuss it. Sir Ernest Benn , who himself was never at a University, has built up a great publishing business by methods that he has described in that interesting book, ' The Confessions of a Capitalist.' Mr. Ernest Walls , who is now Managing Director of the enormous firm of Lever Brothers, was at Oxford, and Mr. Maynard Keynes is, of course, a complete University man; ex-President of the Union at Cambridge and a Fellow of King's College there. Besides being one of the leading economists of the world (his book, ' The Economic Consequences of the Peace,' had a real political influence on both sides of the Atlantic), and the chief proprietor of the Nation, he can speak with authority on the modern business world, as he is Chairman of the National Mutual Life Assurance Society.

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.
