RECEPTION TEST
2.5 (-2.25) ' Life and Work in the British Empire 6 Canada
Mr GEORGE BINNEY: 'Life at a Hudson's Bay Company s Post
IN HIS BROADCAST this afternoon George Binney will trace the history of Hudson Bay from its discovery by the English navigator and explorer, Henry Hudson , in 1610, down to the present day. In 1670 Charles II gave a Charter to the Hudson Bay Company, and they were given a vast expanse of land round this great inland sea, and they started there and then to trade for furs with the Indians, to search for gold, and to look for safe and quick routes to China.
In this land of ice and cold they built a trading port at the mouth of one of the rivers, and proceeded to carry on. George Binney went out with three expeditions to Spitzbergen in 1921, 1923, and 1924, the last two of which he led, and spent five years working for the Hudson Bay Company. He will tell schools that one trading port has grown to two hundred trading ports at the present day.
He will speak of Red Indians and canoes; of river ice and bales of fur; of the settlers that went out there, and of how the posts became the centre of villages, and the villages became towns. He will talk of Eskimos ; of the Indians' fear of the sea, and of the Eskimos' love of hunting in it; of seals and polar bears and walrus ; of snow houses and dog teams.

Miss MARGERY PERHAM : ' British Rule in Africa-The Machinery of Government'
THE TALK this evening will show the two schools of administration that have emerged in Africa as a result of the attempt to fit the framework of the twentieth century States over a patchwork of thousands of independent tribes, and sub-tribes, mostly in a primitive state of development.
Margery Perham had a distinguished career at Oxford, and has travelled not only in East Africa, which is so much in the limelight, but in West Africa which, by comparison, is so little known.
She will be remembered for two broadcasts she gave last year: in June, 'The Result of Abolition in West Africa' in the Slave Trade series, and in September, 'Bechuanaland'.
She is to sum up the present series on March 23, in a broadcast 'What of the Future ? '

Dame EDITH LYTTELTON , G.B.E.:
' Premonition and Prevision '
IN HER BROADCAST this evening Dame Edith Lyttelton will stress the power of the unconscious part of our mind. It has power not only over our bodies. It can gather information of events in the past, or at a distance, or even in the future.
She will mention the three kinds of mind within us: mind pictures, or visualisation within our mind; warnings and irresistible impulses. But the main matter of her talk this evening will be confined to the faculty of the mind, namely, the occasional power to know something which is going to happen in the future.
Dame Edith Lyttelton , G.B.E., is
President of the Society for Psychical Research, and the author of several books and plays.

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.
