She compares her present life with her former years on the wrong side of the apartheid barrier. Compiled and produced by Peggy Harper See page 10

: 20,000 LEAGUES

UNDER THE SEA by JULES VERNE freely adapted as a serial in eight parts by Lance Sieveking
Part 8
It is now the middle of July 1867; and Professor Aronnax, Elbow, and Ned Land have been Captain Nemo's prisoners on board the Nautilus for ten months, and have travelled hither and thither under the sea-nearly eighteen thousand leagues, which is approximately fifty-four thousand miles.
There is a queer feeling of aimless-ness. They have long ceased to be astonished at anything the strange Captain Nemo does. He has shown them mermaids swimming among the ruins of the sunken continent Atlantis. He has nearly wrecked the submarine under the ice at the South Pole. With Nemo they have walked in submarine forests: dressed in the breathing-machines he invented, and with electric guns have hunted horrifying monsters.

Appeal on. behalf of UFAW
Universities Federation for Animal-Welfare by the President of the British Veterinary Association and of the Veterinary Section of UFAW, Sydney Jennings, m.R.c.v.s.
Contributions (preferably by crossed postal order or cheque) will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to Sydney Jennings [address removed]
The main object of UFAW is to enlist the services of professional people and of students in promoting kindness to animals, including those used in experiments, and in carrying out scientific investigations for the benefit of animals. It is helped in this work by eminent scientists. UFAW campaigned against the gin trap (now made illegal), saved dogs from pain, due to wrong methods of electrocution, and opposes cruel poisons and the wounding of deer by 'incompetent shots' and poachers.

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.
