Considering the accessibility of Germany, and the variety it offers to holiday-makers, it is no wonder every year sees it more and more popular. Take, for example, the Black Forest. Little more than a day's journey from London, it offers as complete an 'escape' from the workaday life of Western Europe as can be found. With Freiburg as centre - its lace-spired cathedral dominating everything - one can make excursions into the pine-covered hills, climb the Feldberg in the south or the Hornisgrunde in the north, visit villages where the peasants still go dressed in their gay native costumes, or accept the ready hospitality of the hill-side farmers whose carved verandas look out over the green hills they so diligently plough. Tired, one returns to the amenities of Freiburg, with its Opera House, its concerts, and theatres, its gay streets, and its university life, to be refreshed against the next adventure into surrounding hills.
FOR the last of his present series of talks, based on personal adventures among birds, Mr.
Massingham takes us to such favourite haunts and sanctuaries as Blakeney, where, on the low stretches of the East Anglian coast, the best possible insight is obtainable into the ways and habits of terns and merlins, gulls and red-shanks, and hosts of other seashore birds. In addition to these, Mr. Massingham tells of some more unusual frequenter of the coast-buzzards, ravens, and wagtails, to name only a few.
8.0 8.30 (Daventry only) Mr. NORMAN WALKER: ' Next Steps in Biology-VI, The Ventilation of our Bodies.' Relayed from Leeds
MR. WALKER'S series of biological talks-whose aim has been to help listeners to learn something of science at first hand, by performance of experiments, and by making direct observations-comes to a close with this talk, on the ventilation of our bodies. The experiments with blood that were begun on May 28 are continued ; we learn how the blood reaches the living tissues, and we watch the work of the red blood-cells. We all understand, these days, the importance of ventilating our rooms ; but the ventilation of our bodies, through the great windows of the lungs, is still too infrequently given the serious consideration it demands.
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.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
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.
