'The Hansa Towns-(I) Salt Herring '
THIS is the first of a series of six fort. nightly Talks on one of the most interesting political combinations known to European history-The Hanseatic League formed in the thirteenth century by the most important trading towns of the North German and Baltic coast, which increased in wealth and power until it was at one time stronger than the Holv Roman Empire itself. The History of the Hanseatic
League reveals in a striking way the whole economic and political conditions of Europe at the time, which made it possible for this combination of towns to influence European policy and practically to monopolize north European trade. Mrs. Gee Nash knows the Baltic, as it is now, at first hand, and in her previous literary and travel Talks for the Bournemouth Station she established her reputation for griphic and convincing word pictures.
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.
