An Introduction to Geology ; i 'THE story of the stones' is a fascinating one to read, and in this talk Mr. Scott will explain how it can be read, and how the' superposition of strata, the wells and springs,' and all the work of water, can be disentangled into a continuous story of geological change.
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.
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.

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.
