A play by L. du Garde Peach
David Livingstone , the Scottish boy who became a great missionary and explorer, educated himself while working at a mill near Glasgow. In this play you will hear how he discovered the Zambesi in 1851 and Lake Nyasa in 1859, how the American newspaper-man Stanley led an expedition to find him when he disappeared somewhere in the heart of the Unknown Continent, and how, two years later, he died while making further explorations to discover the source of the Nile. The play was first broadcast in March. 1938.

: 'UNDER NAZI RULE'

Talks and discussions about conditions of life in Germany
1-' Hitler's Germany: 1933-40'
C. W. Guillebaud, University
Lecturer in Economics and Fellow of St. John's College, Cambridge
This is the first of a new series designed to present listeners with various aspects of social life in Nazi Germany. Some of the speakers in the series will be Germans and others Englishmen well acquainted with the Germany of today. There will probably be more than one speaker at the microphone during each broadcast. So far six subjects have been decided upon, covering such topics as trade unionism, the Press,' sport, law, and so on. It is hoped that the series will be further extended.

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.
