: THE ROMANCE OF THE AUSTRALIAN STOCK-WHIP

Lieut.-Col. Holman James
Colonel Holman James is one of the most accomplished exponents of the Australian stock-whip in the world. As is the lasso to the American cowboy, the hunting horn to the English foxhunter, and the sjambok to the South African, so is the stock-whip to the Australian rancher. Colonel James has given exhibitions with the stock-whip for many years -indeed, under the name of Fred Lindsay , with a horse, stock-whip, and false beard, he delighted audiences at the London Coliseum before the first Great War.

A serial version of a new novel by J. B. Priestley
Sixth instalment, read by Eric Gillett
In this instalment Mr. Hassock's show in Dunberry does come off, and then (because of the police and a small matter of licences for entertaining) it comes off before the end. Nevertheless the townspeople are with the troupe. ' I am warning you ' cried Tom Lees , ' and the bosses and snobs that sent you here. I am warning you all. Let the people sing ! ' ' Hurrah ' shouted Candover, ' Let the people sing', and they do in this first uproarious climax of Priestley's modern fairy tale.

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.
