: Mrs. L. GRANT : 'Amulets and Mascots in North Africa and Elsewhere'

IN all countries and all ages, people have resorted to amulets and mascots to bring them luck or ward off evil chance, and the savage's necklace of human teeth is the direct ancestor of the horseshoe ovor the door and the swastika in a modern woman's brooch. Mrs. Grant has travelled much in the wilds of North Africa, and learned a good deal about the customs of its little-known inhabitants, but her talk today will cover many other parts of the world.

: Mr. Halford Ross: Suez

It is hard nowadays to realize that not so very long ago the sea route to India lay round the Cape of Good Hope, and the Far East was even farther from Europe than seems possible now. The story of how the isthmus that separates the Mediterranean from the Red Sea was cut through, amidst the aspirations, manoeuvres, and intrigues of statesmen, financiers, and engineers, is one of the great episodes of the nineteenth century in politics, engineering and finance. Mr. Halford Ross, who will tell it, is a worldwide traveller who has just published a record of his wanderings, entitled 'By Devious Ways,' and has long been known as an acute observer of the manners and customs of foreign peoples.

: Sir William Bragg: How Faraday Made Wireless Possible

It may seem a far cry from the magneto-electrical discoveries of Faraday in the earlier part of the last century to modem wireless, but the chain of invention and discovery is continuous. and Faraday's work is one of its essential links. Sir William Bragg. who will give the talk, is not only a scientist of the highest qualifications (Fullerian Professor of Chemistry to the Royal Institution, and Director of the Davy-Faraday Research Laboratory) but a lecturer whose powers of interesting listeners with little technical knowledge have been amply proved by the extraordinary success' of his lectures to children at the Royal Society.

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

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.
