: THE OTAGO WHEEL

A recorded conversation between Christopher Morley and Captain Sir David Bone about Joseph Conrad 's first command, the 500-ton barque
Otayo Jyst before the war Christopher Morley discovered that the Otago, no longer sea-worthy. was lying in a mud swamp on the Derwent River in Tasmania. In 1946 the wheel of the barque was brought to him in New.York. In ' The Shadow Line * Conrad used the wheel as the symbol of man's attempt to control his own destiny. Morley decided to present it to his friend of many years' standing, Sir David Bone. the Glasgow sea-captain with whom Conrad had sailed many times. He brought the wheel over from New York himself in August. Sir David in turn, with Morley's approval, presented it to the Honourable Company of Master Mariners at a ceremony on September 28 on board their headquarters ship Wellington at Temple Stairs on the Thames.
In this conversation, recorded at the time of the ceremony. Christopher Morley and Sir David Bone speak of the significance of the wheel and of Joseph Con- ad as they knew him.

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.
