: Mr. H. M. TOMLINSON, 'Men and Cities-Islands'

THE romance of islands is inexplicable, but very real. From the mysterious isles of the Odyssey—the islands of Circe and Calypso-to the island of Robinson Crusoe , the literature of adventure bristles with islands. Mr. H. M. Tomlinson is a writer who has the gift of making the real world far more romantic than most of the adventure-story writers can make their world of fiction. He is a traveller who knows the Indian Ocean and the Malay Straits as taxi-drivers know the West-end, and he has written some of the finest travel-books in the language. Readers of ' Tidemarks,' ' The Sea and the Jungle,' and 'Old Junk,' or of his novel, ' Gallion"s Reach,' which created a remarkable impression amongst the critics when it came out this year, will know that when Mr. Tomlinson talks of islands in the Eastern seas, ho is likely to be in his very best form.

: EDNA THOMAS

(The Lady from Louisiana, singing Negro
Spirituals and Creole Negro Songs)
THOSE listeners who have been to the London Coliseum, for instance, when Edna Thomas was singing there will well remember the atmosphere of sincerity that enveloped her ' turn.' After the slick elliciency, the brilliant artifice of the music-halls, her Negro Spirituals seemed quite unmistakably the real thing, and the crinolined figure, swaying to their lilt, to have coma straight from some old 'colonial ' mansion of the swampy South, through whose long windows came stealing the melancholy songs of tho slaves. Miss Edna Thomas sings her songs with real feeling, derived from her knowledge and understanding of the people by whom they were made, and that is the secret of her charm.








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
