: Col. P. T. ETHERTON: Flying down to Rio'

Colonel P. T. Etherton , who is to give this interesting talk on a trip by airship and aeroplane to Rio, and thence over the Andes, has led an exciting and adventurous life. Born in 1879, he served in Kitchener's Fighting Scouts during the South African War, and later was transferred to the Indian Army. In 1909-10 Colonel Etherton crossed Asia from India to England through the Pamirs, Chinese Turkestan, Mongolia, Siberia, Russia, and Germany. Furthermore, he is one of only five white men who have ever penetrated into the sacred Moslem shrine of Ordam Padshah in south-west China. During the War Colonel Etherton served in France, Egypt, the Sinai Peninsula, and Mesopotamia, and in 1918 was sent on a special commission to Central Asia. For five years he was H.B.M. Consul-General and Political Resident in Chinese Turkestan and Additiona I Assistant Judge of H.B.M Supreme Court for China.
On his return to England, Colonel
Etherton commanded the 5 1st (London) Anti-Aircraft Brigade until 1929, and in 1933 he was appointed hon. organising secretary to the Houston Mt. Everest Flight. He has written several important books on travel and frequently contributed articles to the Press on sport and travel.

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.
