ON the storm-swept and uninhabited islands off the north and west coasts of Scotland the grey seal breeds, and these island nurseries are a wonderful sight to see on the not too frequent occasions when they are accessible by boat. Mr. Seton Gordon , who is well known as a naturalist and nature photographer, with a particular interest in the wild life of Scotland, has a very special knowledge of the breeding-grounds of the seal, as he was Admiralty Patrol Officer for Argyllshire and the Inner Hebrides during the War.

: Mr. D. C. SOMERVELL, Europe throughout the Ages : Modern Europe-The Rise of Democracy '

THE series on ' Europe throughout the Ages,' which began last November, has traced the course of Western civilization from its dawn in ancient Greece, through its eclipse in the Dark Ages and its re-emergence in the Middle
Ages ; the change that came with the Renaissance and the Reformation, and the age of (more or less), enlightened despotism. This evening Mr. Somervell will conclude the series by describing the rise of modern democracy-first in aspiration, later in concrete form, in the Scottish Kirk and the English Levellers, in the writings of Rousseau and the achievements of constitution-makers in the United States and in revolutionary France.

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.
