JOAN WOOLLCOMBE : ' To see a Children's Court at work in Paris '
THIS MORNING'S TALK, like the one last Monday, shows yet another out-of-the-ordinary reason for going abroad. Joan Woollcombe is a ' feature writer ', and, as she says, it is part of her business to lift the lid off unusual brews. She soon found that her passion for finding out how things work took her by air over a great deaf* of Europe-seeing things and talking to people ; chiefly seeing things not so easily seen by the majority of us, and writing about them in some fifty papers.
The ' behind the scenes ' of the Law when it deals with child offenders is not at all easy to see in any country unless the powers that be are persuaded you will not let them down by sensation-mongering. Mrs. Woollcombe visited both Holland and France with extreme rapidity by air recently, especially for these two broadcasts, her object being to describe just exactly what does go on behind the closed doors of the Children's Courts abroad.
Last Monday she dealt with Amsterdam ; this morning she will deal with Paris.

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.
