: Things I Remember ' CHARLES COOK-A Country Labourer

This morning, Mr. Charles Cook , who is seventy years of age and a country labourer, is to tell listeners some of the hardships and humours of his early days. A bed of sacking and rope, a meal off a knob of bread and a knob of dripping. Sixpence a week for minding the cows. Promotion to three and sixpence for driving three horses, and three and a half miles to walk to his job and back. Those were the days. And he didn't keep anything of his three and sixpence either, but had to hand over the lot to his parents. But a farthing was returned to him to be spent on sweets. ... But Mr. Cook has no grudge against life, though he once worked from three in the morning until seven at night to pay off his mother's debt to the baker.

JACK McLAREN : 'I take to the Wilds '
In this talk of real and really thrilling first-hand adventure, Mr. Jack McLaren will describe how he was once shipwrecked on a Cannibal beach in New Guinea, and how, though he might have been killed the first time, he returned to the same spot to trade copra with the natives.
He will tell of his narrow escape from a blanket fish in Torres Strait; of his experiences as a recruiter of native labourers in the wildest parts of the Solomon Islands ; of an adventure in West Papua ; and finally of the strange way in which he took up writing. Among other exciting books from his pen are ' Blood on the Deck' and ' My Crowded Solitude.'

MARGUERITE NATALIA
(soprano) Othello' is one of three overtures originally intended as movements of a symphony suggesting the ideas of childhood, youth, and manhood. Othello shows us manhood and the working of love in life. We may take it that the composer did not set out to depict Shakespeare's tragedy in symphonic poem fashion, but that he is concerned more generally with its motive of passionate love.

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.
