" This Evening's Programme."
During the course of the programme, Sir GEORGE McLAREN BROWN. K.B.E., European Manager of the C.P.R.. will broadcast a message on "Dominion Day."
"Sing me a song of her fertile prairies,
League upon league of the golden grain ;
Comfort housed in the smiling homestead -
Plenty throned on the lumbering wain,
Land of contentment ! May no strife vex you,
Never war's flag on your plains unfurl'd,
Only the blessings of mankind reach you-
Finding the food for a hungry world! "
(Robert Reid. )
Sir George McLaren
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.
