: Mr. FRANK MoRLEY, ' How a Whale is Caught '

SINCE we all began reading ' Moby Dick ' again, the epic grandeur of the whaler is no longer a secret to us. Even in these days of steamships and up-to-date harpoons, whaling is still a stern and thrilling business, and a trip in a whaler would bo adventure enough to satisfy most of us. Mr. Frank Morley (who is an American who came here as a Rhodes Scholar and has stayed as a writer and editor) took such a trip in a Shetland whaler not long ago, and described his experiences in his contribution to that interesting book, ' Whaling North and South.' In this evening's talk he will describo how the biggest creature on tho face of the earth is caught.

: Mr. H. CHARLES WOODS, ' Capitals of Europe -Sofia, Bucharest, Tirana '

THE capitals of the Balkan States may not always be so imposing as the groat cities of Western Europe, and some of them are, as capitals, comparatively new, but even these make up for their lack of a longer history by the number of exciting things that have happened in them in tho last few years. Mr. Woods knows this part of tho world well. Ho was Special Correspondent of The Times in the Balkans in 1911, and later ho was Special Correspondent in tho Balkan War for The Evening News.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
