: 'Buried Treasures of the World' —IV, Mr. CLIFFORD W. Collinson.— 'The Islands of a Thousand Sails'

IT was Mr. Clifford Collinson , listeners will remember, who opened
. this romantic series of talks on buried treasure. Tonight he is to tell us the exciting story of tho treasure that lies buried on the Ladrono Islands—sometimes known as ' Tho Islands of Thieves' or ' Tho Islands of a Thousand Sails.' Secrecy, as we aU know, is a very proper attitude when buried treasure is under consideration, and wo are not going to spoil Mr. Collinson's story for him (or for you) by giving it away beforehand—except, perhaps, to say that the Ladrono Islands lie just north of the Equator, that. about a hundred years ago a British naval officer stole a Spanish treasure ship, that ho hid tho booty on the volcanic Pagan Island (one of tho Ladrone Group), and that he was caught by tho Spaniards. From all of which anyono can see that Mr. ColliMon has a very pretty talo up his sleeve for you.

: A MILITARY BAND CONCERT

WALTER. GLYNN (Tenor) The WIRELESS MILITARY BAND
Conducted by B. WALTON O'DONNELL
THE drama by the Norwegian poet Bjornson, Sigurd Jorsal far, is a tale of Norway in tho time of tho Crusades. Sigurd and his brother Eystein, sons of the great Harald, are fierce rivals, each reigning over part of Norway. At the end of the play they become reconciled and dedicate themselves jointly to the service of their country.
Grieg wrote incidental music for the production of the play, afterwards recasting several of the movements in the form of a very effective Suite, second in popularity only to the two Suites from his music to Ibsen's Peer Gynt. The names of the three movements in this Selection make it clear to what part of the story they belong, and are vividly picturesque in the way we expect from Grieg.

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.
