: 'Living in Cumberland '

Mr. WILFRID ROBERTS
(Newcastle Programme)
TRIS MORNING Wilfrid Roberts is to talk of an estuary in' a beautiful part of Cumberland which is little known. Here one may stand on English soil and look at Scotland over the water. On the Northern side, at the point, the granite range called Criffe!l stands sentinel to the Irish Sea, and on the far side, too, rise hills behind a village and a town linked with the names of two of Scotland's most famous sons: Carlyle, who was born at Ecclefechan, and Burns, who died at Dumfries.
And perhaps standing here with one's eyes on the firth, one recalls that winter morning in 1792 when a young customs officer, sent to watch a smuggler that had got into low water, wrote ' The Deil's awa' wi' the Excise-man
On the Cumberland side of the water is agricultural land, dotted with small farms. Salmon are caught in the tidal estuary with beams and ' haaf ' nets-one of the few places in England where nets are used for salmon.
Marsh flats, white sands ; a place of wild beauty ; for the very name of the estuary is beautiful. Solway Moss. What lovely names there are in Cumberland. Wilfrid Roberts will also speak of' Sowdy Powdies '-quicksands ; and he will tell of hapless horses and cattle that have got into them, and of how they are got out.

: ' The National Character'

'Modern Industry and National
Character '-I
Lt. Col. Sir HERBERT AUSTIN , K.B.E.
THIS EVENING'S BROADCAST is to be the first of four talks on the same subject, but each will be given from a different point of view. Over a period of four weeks the problem of the effect of Industry on National Character is to be discussed by an employer of industry, a working man, a working woman, and a social worker.
Lieut.-Col. Sir Herbert Austin is
Chairman of the Austin Motor Car Co. Ltd., and of the Wolseley Machine Co. Ltd. He served his apprenticeship to engineering at Langlands Foundry, Melbourne ; managed several small works there ; came over to England in 1890 to control the manufacture of the Wolseley Sheep Shearing Machine ; and was made a director in 1900. It was not until 1905 that he manufactured the first motor-car on his own account, at Longbridge Works, Northfield, Birmingham, but there is no one who has not heard of the Austin car today.
Next Monday a working man is to give his views.

Mr. N. K. ROSCOE : 'The Japanese
Farmer'
THE JAPANESE FARMER will be shown in this vivid talk as an individual and wholly admirable figure, skilful, industrious, scientific, and incredibly patient.
Even in England, where farms are small compared to America and the Dominions, one thinks of a farm of 200 acres as being of average size, and the tenant of it has to work from cockcrow to dark to keep the family going. It seems incredible, then, that seventy per cent. of Japanese farms run to no more than two to two and a half acres each, and the farmers and their families are able to subsist on them.
There is practically no pasture. The flats are paddy fields, the hills are mulberry orchards. Mulberry leaves feed the silkworms, an important asset to every farmer, requiring attention day and night. Imagine the patience of those people transplanting rice seedlings one by one for hours on end, having to stoop in mud and water to do it.
A picturesque person, the Japanese farmer, in his tunic and trousers of blue, wearing a mushroom hat and mackintosh of grass to keep off the rain.
N. K. Roscoe spent sixteen years in Japan, and eleven of them were connected with agriculture. He travelled over 54,000 miles throughout the whole Empire, meeting and lecturing to farmers. He speaks and reads Japanese.

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.
