: REINDEER HUNT IN SOUTH GEORGIA

Kenneth Bradley describes a day spent hunting reindeer in South Georgia, not far from the Antarctic Circle
Kenneth Bradley is perhaps best known generally as the author of ' Diary of a District Officer,' written during his Rhodesian Service, Lut since that period he has acted as Colonial and Financial Secretary, Falkland Islands, and as Under-Secretary, Gold Coast.
It was while he was serving in the Falkland Islands that he paid a visit to South Georgia, and the reindeer hunt described in this talk took place. The reindeer were imported by Norwegians attached to a whaling station and are the only animals of their kind to be found in the Southern hemisphere

'A Clouded Star '
A play by Bea Howe based on the book by Anne Parrish
Violinist. Pauline Elmitt
Production by May E. Jenkin
Dark was the Negress Harriet Tubman, but a star indeed. She smuggled Negro slaves to freedom ninety years ago. in America, before the emancipation, when to be caught escaping to the North meant death. Moses (as she was known) knew the ways and means of the secret Underground Railroad, the friends and foes of the swamps and forests in the gigantic trek to Canada. This story of a little Negro boy and others whom she led to freedom is a faithful adaptation of Anne Parrish's recently published novel. It is the true and excitmg story of a great woman, and is in itself the final tribute to her memory.

From the novel 'Is He Popenjoy?' by Anthony Trollope
Dramatised for broadcasting by H. Oldfield Box
Produced by Wilfrid Grantham
2 — ' Lord George Entertains an Old Flame'
Cast in order of speaking:
(Continued in next column)
Mary Lovelace, only child of the Dean of Brotherton, has married Lord George Germain, brother and heir of the Marquis of Brotherton, and with him has gone to live at Manor Cross, the gloomy old mansion that is the absent Marquis's family seat. But Lord George, fourteen years older than his lovely young wife, is dull and narrow-minded. The sisters, who share the house, are sternly critical of the young bride. Mary, who has married largely to please her father, is not at all happy; and the Dean begins to wonder whether he did wisely to encourage the match.

: I SPEAK FOR MYSELF

Some reflections by Denis Johnston
Denis Johnston has recently returned to Dublin via London after a year in the United States. Perhaps it is the contrast between life in the United States and life in Eire and in this country that has caused him to review his own philosophy. ' We have no need,' he says, * to envy our grandfathers the peace and prosperity of the nineteenth century if we accept the advantages of the times we live in realistically.'

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.
