A CERTAIN rocky stretch of tho South
Devon coast would bo even more perilous to mariners than it is but for the ever-watchful eyes of the men at the Hope Cove Coastguard Station. In this talk, Station-Officer Bryant describes the day's work there and the grand panorama of shipping that the look out man sees through his telescope. He also gives an exciting account of what happens when a ship is wrecked and the coastguards go to the rescue, and tells of somo of the wrecks ho himself has seen.

Professor JAMES RITCHIE , D.Sc. (Professor of Natural History in the University of Aberdeen): 'An Endless Warfare-The Fight between
Domestic Animals and Wild Animals'
(From Aberdeen)
IN the domestication of animals for his own various purposes, man has found staunch new allies in his long struggle for the mastery over wild nature. Domestic animals must be fed; so the large tracts of native forest disappear to give place to pasture and meadow, and the destruction of the forest implies in turn the destruction of the forest fauna. Professor Ritchie, continuing his series of talks for lovers of the countryside, here deals with the far-reaching effects of this interesting evolutionary sidelight.

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.
