THE migrations of birds ' are not quite so much of a mystery as they used to be, but the more that is known of them, the more wonderful they seem. The bird-routes for the different seasons cross all Europe, Africa and Asia, North and South and East and West. In this talk Sir William Beach Thomas will describe these vast journeys, by which, for instance, a pair of swallows that nest in the eaves of a house in England may winter in mid-Africa.

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.
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.
