' The Fen District-I, The Fenlands '
HARRY GODWIN , Ph.D
You have heard in this series about the downland of Wiltshire, and about the valleys and mountains of the Lake District. Today you are to hear the first of four talks about the Holland of Britain.
A country that was once wide marsh-land but which has now been drained and cultivated. Mr. Harry Godwin is to take you today for a walk through the peat fens. You will see the landscape, and note its characteristics. Flat. No hedges, banks, nor trees; no hills, nor woods.
He will tell you about the ditches that have been dug and the trees that have been planted ; about the soil and the fields, the roads and the rivers. You will hear how the Fenland people cope with the problem of too much water; and what peat is and tht use they make of it. You will heai about silt and sedge-crops, and in this first talk of Mr. Godwin's get a very good idea of the Fens.

: ROYAL INSTITUTE OF BRITISH ARCHITECTS' CENTENARY BANQUET Speech by the President,

Sir GILES-GILBERT SCOTT , R.A.
Relayed from
The Guildhall, London
The guest of honour tonight will be H.R.H. the Prince of Wales, and about a thousand guests will sit down to the banquet. When Sir Giles Gilbert Scott 's speech is relayed, listeners will hear one of the most distinguished of living architects.
He is famous for having won the Liverpool Cathedral Competition at the age of twenty-two, and he has been building the cathedra! ever since. It is doubtful if it will be completed in his lifetime. He also designed the building which houses the Battersea Power Plant and the new Waterloo Bridge. He has just completed the new buildings in Clare College, Cambridge, and the Cambridge University Library, which was opened last month by H.M. the King.

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.
