11.0 Announcements and Singing
11.5 Round the Countryside
What to look for and how to see
Country schools are filling up with children from urban districts, and this herd of city youngsters is being let loose, in many cases for the first time, on rural England. Many teachers are taking parties of young people on country rambles, and these talks will help the little newcomers to get the very most out of the wild life of field and woodland.
11.15 The Story of Theseus. The life of a Hero of Ancient Greece—1
Few of the heroes of the Ancient World stand out more nobly than the mighty Theseus. Charles Kingsley has immortalised him, and the story of his wanderings in the labyrinth of Crete in search of the dreaded Minotaur must rank as one of the most exciting in history.
Today's is the first of three dramatised episodes on the life of this great hero. Episodes 2 and 3 will be broadcast on Tuesday and Wednesday at 11.15.
11.35 Music and Singing

2.40 The Story of Socrates, the wise man of Ancient Athens
One of the greatest thinkers of the Ancient World, and probably the greatest Athenian of his day, was the philosopher Socrates. The story of his life, as seen through the Platonic dialogues, is the story not only of a wise thinker, but the tragedy of a brave man. This afternoon you will hear some dramatised episodes of his life.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
