: Travel Talk: Life and Work: 4: Sheep-ranching in Patagonia

W. S. Barclay
Open your map of South America, look at the extreme south, and all of Argentina south of the Rio Negro, and all of Chile south of Chiloe is Patagonia.
Along the line on your map that divides the strip that is Chile and the wider portion that is Argentina runs the great mountain range of the Andes for a thousand miles. And a quarter of the way down Argentina you will see the Chubut river that rises in the Andes and flows out into the South Atlantic Ocean.
Here are sheep-lands about which Mr W. S. Barclay is to talk to you today. He will speak of the valleys and of the mountains; of Patagonia's thousand miles of coastline where the wind never stops blowing; of early explorers and modern settlers; of the world's largest sheep farms.

: THE AIR-DO-WELLS

In their Seventh Edition with BRIAN LAWRENCE
EFFIE ATHERTON
EVE BECKE
CLAUDE GARDNER
WILFRID THOMAS
RONALD HILL
JEAN COLIN
Devised and produced by MAX KESTER and BRYAN MICHIE this evening this popular concert party h to give its last broadcast in the present jeries, and in a medium of entertainment that so greatly depends for its success on team-work it is all to the good that five original members of the cast are available.
The company know each other so well that an intimacy gets over the microphone. There are no stars. Each is a solo and small-part actor in turn. If Ronnld Hill is cast for a tram conductor in a particular sketch, it doesn't matter that he has written the music of many of the numbers. Brian Lawrence can equally forget he is Quaglino's and Fred Hartley 's vocalist, if he must follow up a song with a portrayal of some minor character.
Effie Atherton puts on one side her cabaret fame, Claude Gardner gets his. laughs but steals nobody's, Eve Becke and Jean Colin meet as old friends who knew each other at the Duke of York's Theatre in Many Happy Returns. The Air-do-Wells are a success, and playing for one's side is the secret. Jean Colin will be featured in next week's ' People You Hear '.

: ' Song and Dance' PHILIP THORNTON

Mr. Philip Thornton returns to the microphone after an absence of half a year. He has been off on the unbeaten tracks of musical research-this time it was Morocco. Armed with his flute and tuning fork, he spent the autumn roaming about from one Moorish city to another, in search of musical information for the series he starts today. As usual he has brought back a host of strange instruments, all of which he has mastered-all except one, and he will doubtless tell you about it. It is a very primitive pipe from the Atlas mountains, and although he has noted down quite a dozen tunes for it, it has so far outwitted him.
During this series Philip Thornton will talk about the dancing and singing of people all over the world : illustrated with many examples collected by patient research.
You will be surprised to hear the strangely varying opinion of the world's mothers upon such subjects as ' What best puts baby to sleep '-almost as big a contrast as his selection of love songs that come from remote places on the earth.
Many of these examples he will sing himself, and he also hopes to illustrate some of the dance rhythms with his feet.

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.
