' Peoples of the World '-9
' Native Farmers of West Africa '
A. VICTOR MURRAY (Professor of Education, University of Hull)
Originally the chief exports from the Gold Coast were gold and slaves; then, when the slave trade was stopped, palm oil and palm nuts, kola nuts, guinea grain, and monkey skins. About fifty years ago rubber came into the picture, but the industry was killed by competition in the East. But a considerable industry has grown up m timber, especially mahogany.
The chief export of the Coasts today is cocoa, and it is a curious fact that if a native of Accra had not set sail for the island of Fernando Po off the Cameroons and brought back a few seed pods, no-one might have discovered that cocoa would grow and nourish.
The first export of 8olbs. was made in 1891, and it fetched £4 ; in 1926 the export value was over £9,000,000. The industry was entirely built up by the natives, with the help of the government, it is true, but without a penny ot European capital.
Professor Victor Murray is to tell you what it is like to live in a small village and in a bush town, and he will say something about the secret societies.

Round the Countryside-9
ERIC PARKER : Owls '
Owls have always held a fascination. They hunt by night and utter unearthly cries. You may see them sitting about in daylight, or watch their flight by ' owl light '-dusk. They look solemn and wise ; an owl was the emblem of Minerva, goddess of wisdom.
They have been associated with witches. The so-called ' screech owl', which was probably the barn owl that 'often screams horribly as it flies along', was superctitiously believed to haunt the windows of the dying. But you country boys and girls may live too near a wood to be scared by an owl.
Owls bolt their food, and, after the manner of hawks, cast up the bones, fur or feathers of their prey. Their plumage is so soft that their flight is silent. They have large eyes to collect every ray of light, and big concave ears to hear the smallest sound.
Mr. Eric Parker will describe the appearance and habits of the four native British owls : the barn, or white owl, the brown or tawny owl, the long-eared owl, and the short-eared owl. And he will tell you how the little owl was introduced into this country from Holland, and with what result.

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.
