K. C. BOSWELL
For this course for the current year Commander King-Hall and Mr. K. C. Boswell have drawn up a programme which has as its central idea the way England is governed. During the autumn term, while Commander King-Hall is in America, the talks will be given by Mr. Boswell.
In his opening talk last Thursday,
Mr. Boswell told schools all about the Monarchy as it is, today he will discuss with Baron Rollo and Mr. Pepys the Monarchy as it was, and schools will hear an outline of the changes that have taken place in the course of centuries, modifying the power of Monarchy from the absolute position it once held to the constitutional position it holds today.
Next Thursday Mr. Boswell. will discuss the Mother of Parliaments.

C. STANLEY EKE: 'Stowing Away'
In this new series some of the world's adventurers are to come to the microphone with episodes from their own real life stories that should make good listening.
The man known as a rolling stone has certain characteristics as denned as the stripes of a zebra-a restlessness, a love of roving and adventure and excitement, and an inrooted dislike of authority and everything in the way of routine.
Not for him is the steady job and the gradual climb, the suburban house and a garden, the 8.50 up in the morning and the 7.10 down at night. He is a romantic fellow. The moon rises and suggests how much lovelier it will look on the African veldt, and he must go there ; or he is working contentedly in Chicago when the face of a girl reminds him of one he last saw in Croydon, and he must throw up everything and jump a train to New York on his journey home ; or, as in the case of the opening talk to-day, he is doing odd jobs in New Zealand when he hears that his brother in England is to be married in six weeks' time. Hey presto ! Mr. C. Stanley Eke stows away under the boilers of a cargo boat and almost suffers hell's fires in pursuit of an idea.

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.
