: 'WHAT I'M READING NOW'

A talk about books by Harold Hobson
Few broadcasters have made their radio debut as a result of a challenge, but Harold Hobson , on being so challenged while he and his friends were listening to a broadcast talk, took it up on the spot and wrote the synopsis of his talk while the broadcast was still going on. He sent it up and it was at once accepted. He gave the talk in May this year.
The other week he gave an amusing broadcast on talking to stars, in which he showed how inept he was as an interviewer. He graduated at Oxford and is on the editorial staff of the Christian Science Monitor. He is now engaged on a study of Bernard Shaw for a book to be published in the autumn.

: ' SCOTT IN THE ' ANTARCTIC '

Compiled from the records by Val Gielgud and Peter Creswell
Produced by Peter Creswell
During the last war a soldier wrote from the trenches to Lady Scott saying how the heroic story of Captain Scott had inspired him and his fellow soldiers in their own task. Certainly in all the history of British heroism there is no story greater than that of the almost superhuman feat accomplished by Scott and the members of his Polar expedition in 1911-12. Foiled. as they were of the triumph of being first at the South Pole, they achieved in a sense a greater feat by their triumph over, defeat itself.
Tonight's programme has been broadcast before. It is a reconstruction from documents, letters, and diaries, of the story of the Scott expedition from the moment it was planned until its tragic conclusion in the little tent, so near and yet so far from the safetv of the expedition's base.

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.
