Regional Geography
Peoples of the World-3
' Cultivators of the East Indies
The Rt. Hon. W. Ormsby-Gore , M.P.
Schools were told last week by Dr. Bryant Mumford about Java—her music and peoples; and to-day the Right Hon. W. Ormsby-Gore is to tell them about Java's dense population, and how they are dependent on the land-a land of rich soil and outstanding beauty.
They will hear about the influence of China, about the rice terraces about the'coming of Indian civilisation. Then about Arab traders and Islam, the Dutch and the spice trade, about sugar-cane, quinine, coffee, rubber, and tea-all the rich produce of Java through the years down to the present day.

Nature Study
Round the Countryside-3
Understanding the Cat'
Richard Morse
Although the cat has been man's familiar companion for so many centuries, it is still largely a mystery. Its behaviour is often strange and inexplicable, and utterly different from that of a dog. Probably the best way of understanding some of the more interesting of the cat's daily habits is to learn something of the past history of its race-of the ways of cats which never came under man's influence-for in spite of its long domestication the cat is still very largely a wild animal. Most of its familiar traits were probably well established while its ancestors still roved the fields and woods.
One of the greatest tributes that can be paid to it is its position in law. Ten years ago the owner of a pigeon sued the owner of a cat that had killed it. But the cat and its owner were held to be blameless because it was in the nature of the cat to kill the pigeon.
With the ancient Egyptians the cat was sacred ; with us it is privileged. It has been said of it that it is nobler than ourselves, for we depend on civilisation, whilst the cat makes use of it, but could go on living without it.

BOYD CABLE : ' Swagging it in Australia'
In this entertaining talk by Mr. Boyd Cable listeners will hear a very detailed account of a swagman's requirements on the track in Australia, the sort of country he's likely to walk through, and the kind of reception he's likely to meet.
The lonelier parts of the country seem fine for a swagman, for it is the custom to give the traveller sufficient tea, flour, and sugar to carry him over the next stage of his route. Neither are you asked for references, nor is previous experience demanded of you when you apply for a job.
A good life it seems when you are bored with sleeping between sheets and have a regular job— for this last seems anathema to rolling stones. A swagman, by:the way, is merely a person who carries his blanket rolled across his back.
Mr. Boyd Cable gives an account of ' panning ' for gold and a vivid story of being bitten by a poisonous snake, which is the big act, as it were, of his talk, and a very thrilling one.

: 'India'

The Rt. Hon. STANLEY BALDWIN ,
M.P.
Tonight Mr. Stanley Baldwin is to reply on behalf of the Government to his distinguished critics of last week, and in doing so he will give the Government's views on the future of India, and wind up this important series.
Mr. Baldwin is one of the best known figures in public life. He has sat for the Bewdley Division of Worcestershire since 1908, has been Prime
Minister twice. and Lord President of the Council since the formation of the National Government in 1931; but he has become almost equally well known as a broadcaster. He has made many appearances at the microphone, and many listeners still remember his introduction to the series on ' The National Character' as one of the most notable of broadcast talks.

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.
