: ' Living in Cumberland'

Mr. WILFRID ROBERTS
(Newcastle Programme)
THIS MORNING Wilfrid Roberts is to talk about the horsemen of the farm, those picturesque figures to be seen against the skyline ploughing their furrows, or perhaps with the day's labour over, riding bareback along the lane in the gnat-hung sunset or the dusk.
They plough, they cut the hay, they make the cornstacks ; skilled labour for which they are paid 38s. a week in return for long hours. But most of these horsemen are young and amazingly skilful. They can thatch a rick, set a plough, or ' pike ' hay, and they take a pride in their craft.
This talk will discuss their life and environment. Many hire themselves out, live in the farmhouse, and, being paid half-yearly and saving, become farmers thereby. And it will show something of their recreations, of hound trailing, of country dances, of occasional visits to Carlisle to see the pictures : to resume work next morning, with seagulls from the Solway getting their fill from the upturned soil.

'A Day in the Life of a Japanese
Soldier'
TONIGHT'S TALK will be broadcast by a speaker who wishes to remain anonymous. In discussing the daily life of the Japanese soldier, he makes an interesting comparison between Japanese soldiering and our own.
The British recruit says ' So long, mother ' travels on a warrant to the nearest depot, and becomes a Tommy ; but it is not so in Japan. His family go with him, the villagers wave them to the station with flags, a sort of garden party follows at the barracks, where he changes into uniform and becomes at once a member of the most honoured profession in Japan. His Company Commander tells his admiring relations that he himself will be an elder brother to their boy. What would the British Tommy say to that ?
But with the departure of his relations, life is very strange to the young Japanese. On all occasions he has sat on the floor he must now sit on a bench ; he has slept on the floor, he must now sleep on an iron bed-cot.
Football and cricket take no place in his recreations; the wrestling and fencing he has been taught on parade he indulges in on warm summer evenings ; his officers speak to him roughly, he answers in the most polished manner. He may drop out on a route march and be left to die-he has failed in his duty, and his relations will approve ; or for minor offences he may be appealed to with the greatest kindness-there is no C.B. His iron rations are not biscuit and bully beef, but cold boiled rice kneaded into a cake with a pickled plum in the centre, and it stays him for hours. How these, and other characteristic differences, are the reasons contributing to the conscript Japanese army being one of the most efficient and mobile in the world will be shown in this interesting talk.

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.
