' Early Days in the Canadian North-West Mounted and British Columbia
Police' by ' 160 ' and ' Old Timer '
This morning two veterans are to talk about the stirring days when, as young men, they enlisted in the North-West Mounted and British Columbia Police, respectively Old Timer' and '160'. ' 160 ' is eighty-five years of age, but he can still hit the trail, though it leads to Broadcasting House and not across the Canadian Prairies.
He was among the first thousand to enlist in 1874, joining B troop in Toronto, entraining from there and detraining at Eargo in North Dakota; riding onto Dufferin, with the wagons sticking in the mud ; making the land of the Blackfeet and the Bloods and the Piegans-those Indians of story ; sighting the Cypress hills and buffalo; riding on in red tunic and white helmet on his brown horse.
He will tell of a stampede inside a corral of wagons ; of a demonstration by the Blackfeet in all their war paint; and of hunting down whisky traders and horse thieves in those days long ago... ,
Then seventy-year-old ' Old Timer will take his place at the microphone and tell of duties no less hazardous, with the water police on the Yukon, where, if you were to survive, you needed the ears of an owl and the eyes of an eagle and the swiftness of a snake ; and even then something more. For ' Old Timer' owed his life more than once to a one-part dog and three-part timber wolf named Laddie, of whose cleverness and stoutness of heart he will talk for hours.

British History-6 ' Turnip Townshend'
RHODA POWER
In 1701 the famous Berkshire farmer, Jethro Tull , invented the drill and, prior to 1713-the date of the Peace of Utrecht-he introduced turnips into the field in King William's reign ' ; but ' the practice did not travel beyond the hedges of his estate ' till after that year.
Lord Townshend, whose estates were in Norfolk, was one of the first great landlords to make extensive use of root crops such as swedes, mangolds, and turnips—especially turnips. That is why people nicknamed him ' Turnip Townshend '. Today you are to hear something about him and about other famous farmers of the eighteenth century.

BIRMINGHAM
A Concert in the Town Hall
Birmingham is a busy musical city. It possesses a first-rate orchestra of its own-the City of Birmingham Orchestra, which, helped by a grant from the City Council, has held winter seasons of concerts for several years. Adrian Boult was its former conductor and k
Joseph Lewis was assistant conductor for six years. It gives weekly concerts every Sunday in the Town Hall and a season of symphony concerts from October to April ; also popular concerts and Children's Concerts. There is also a very good string orchestra called the Birmingham Philharmonic String Orchestra, which gives Midday Concerts throughout the season.
Choral music is represented by the Festival Choral Society, conducted by Harold Gray. Dr. Boult was also its former conductor. It is the oldest choral society in the City, and originally formed the nucleus of the chorus of the now defunct Triennial Festival. Then there is the City of Birmingham Choir, conducted by G. D. Cunning ham, who is also City Organist. This younger society was formed by Sir Granville Bantock , and its first conductor was Joseph Lewis. It has done excellent work, especially in modern choral music.
Finally there is the Birmingham
Police Band, a fine combination that gives numerous concerts in the parks and halls of the city.

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.
