A Discussion between
Mr. S. P. B. MAis and Mr. HOLT MARVELL
THIS series of discussions, of which the first is to be broadcast to-night and the second on Thursday evening, marks a new departure in this branch of the Talks programme. Two well-known broadcasters will be responsible for the whole series of six which are to be given on Mondays and Thursdays during the next three weeks Messrs. Mais and Marvell are to discuss in a lively, conversational manner a subject which is of some importance to us to-day, namely, whether, under the influence of the baneful and seductive slogan ' Safety First', the spirit of adventure is dying out among us. In the course of their comparison between the adventurous spirit as manifested in modern man and in his forefathers, they will recall in brief many stories of adventure, both famous and obscure.
Mr. S. P.
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.
