There are only two ways of seeing the country: one is to walk, the other to cycle. Myfanwy Evans chooses the latter means of propulsion, and this afternoon she will try to convey the enjoyment she had when she recently made a cycling tour of the Chilterns. The expedition started with an empty haversack, which soon began to swell and bulge with odds and ends, some of which will be shown on the television screen. She met some interesting people, too, and one or two of them will be with her today in the studio.
Myfanwy Evans is the wife of John Piper, who has given several television talks in the past. She studied English at Oxford where she was president of the University Women's Swimming Club. Now she is editor of Axis and a contributor to periodicals such as Time and Tide and The New Statesman.

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.
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.
