9.20 Mr. CLIFFORD W. COLLINSON :
' Buried Treasures of the World ’—I
THE child in each one of us (unless we are exceptionally unlucky) never anite dies ; and so long as the least trace of childhood remains in us we shall continue to be interested in the idea of buried treasure. How keen is the general interest, in fact, was plainly demonstrated by the hundreds of letters that poured into the B.B.C. as a result of Dr. Thomas Gann 's recent talk on his adventures with the British Museum expedition to Central America. Comparatively few of us, however, are able to give rein to our wishes in this matter, which is probably as well. The present talk, which is - introductory to a series, is intended to pave the way for some descriptive story-telling by men who have gone on such expeditions after buried treasure. Some of the contributors to this ' Treasure Island ' causerie include Malcolm Campbell on Cocos Island, Paul Edmonds on the Tobermory Galleon, Granville Squiers on the adventures of Captain Kidd, and Clifford Collinson himself on Ladrone Island.
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.
