: Mr. CLIFFORD W. COLLINSON, 'The South Sea Islands '

THE South Sea Islands have been the scene of many a novel of adventure, but here-, once again, truth is stranger than most fiction, and the trader can tell better stories from his own
* experience than the novelist can devise from his imagination. Mr. Collinson has lived as a trader in the Solomon Islands, and his book, Life and Laughter 'Midst the Cannibals,' and his reputation cs a lectuier, are evidence that he knows how to tell his stories well.

: 'Prof. G. ELLIOT SMITH, ' The Movements of Living Creatures '

IN to-day's talk Professor Elliot Smith continues his discussion of the marvellous mechanism, involving supreme efficiency of the labyrinth and the brain, by which vertebrates can perform the most complicated acrobatic feats automatically, whilst their attention is free to modify their movements consciously. A simple example is to be found in the eyes of the dog-fish, which maintain their horizontal position automatically when its head is moved, as is shown in the illustration on this page.

: Worcester Dialect Talk, by Mr. GARGE Arranged by E. LE BRETON MARTIN.

THIS interesting talk, which has been arranged with the approval of the Worcester County Association, is, it is hoped, the forerunner of a . series in which the rich dialects of rural England will be illustrated by those who really talk them. In ' Mr. Garge,' who is a Worcestershire gardener, listeners will for the first time hear a genuine son of the soil at the microphone. The plan is for Mr. E. Le Breton Martin , who is himself a Worcestershire man, to give a short talk on the history and present character of the country, and Mr. Garge will then give a free translation into the vernacular of the same thing. Quite apart from the genuine ethnological and philological value of such a demonstration, it should be extremely interesting to the ordinary man who wants to know a little more of how the other half lives.'

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.
