: CHILDREN'S HOUR

For Children of Most Ages
' Snow Treasure '
A book by Marie McSwigan made into a serial play by Eve Howland
3—' Alarms and Excursions '
Produced by Frances Campbell
For three weeks the children of Riswyk have been sledging down to ' The Snake' with their secret loads of gold bricks, and the Germans have done nothing to stop them. Day by day about twenty snowmen are built along the edge of the hidden fiord, and every night Uncle Victor and Rolls creep ashore from the camouflaged Cleng Peerson to collect the treasure buried under them.
The plan is working well, but slowly, and for the first time in the history of Riswyk nobody wants spring to come-for a thaw would put a stop to sledging, and there is no other way of getting the gold to the ship. Imagine their dismay when the weather suddenly breaks and they hear a rain-storm beating against their windows!
5.35 Westward Across the Sahara by Owen Tweedy
3-Lake Chad
Grilled but intact, Mr. Tweedy and his two friends have now rolled into Fort Lamy, the capital of French Equatorial Africa, and only eighty miles to the north lies lonely Lake Chad where the great Shari empties its waters at the end of its long seven-hundred-mile journey.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
