WARS and massacres abound in human history, but nowhere can one find any so grim as the annual massacre that goes on in the bee-hives at this season every year. The drones-for thousands of years the type of idleness in the literatures of the world-have had their summer of ease and luxury; now comes their hour of reckoning. How this tragedy is worked out Miss Kennedy Bell will explain in this evening's talk.

: Major HERBERT NOYES : 'A King of Big Game.'

A WAY in the virgin jungle of Malaya lives an animal—the Seladang—that is asserted by , those who have hunted him to be the most dangerous quarry in the world. It is not merely that he stands six feet high and has horns six feet or more in length; what makes him so particularly formidable is the fact that, unlike most big game, he is apt to attack unprovoked, and, when attacked himself, he fights his hunter to the death. ' Either you get him or he gets you.' Major Noyes will describe some thrilling incidents in which hunters have either got, or been got by, Seladang.








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.

Welcome to BBC Genome
