' Round the Countryside '—7
' Knowing Birds by their Flight'
Richard MORSE
Although most birds are able to fly, they do not all fly in the same way. Some move their wings so quickly that you can actually hear them whirring as the birds fly near to you, whereas the wing-beats of others are so slow that it is easy to count how many there are to the minute.
Then, too, there are noisy fliers and silent fliers, straight fliers and zigzag fliers, rapid fliers and lazy fliers, quivering, hovering and wheeling fliers, and many more that are equally interesting.
By learning to distinguish some of the different kinds of flight it is often possible to identify a bird that is a long way off, or one that is seen only in the dusk or twilight, and in this way we can make our country walks much more enjoyable.

: 'Youth looks Ahead '—5

WILLIAM KENWORTHY
The talk that listeners are to hear tonight is remarkable for several reasons. It has simple sincerity. It was sent unsolicited to the B.B.C. out of the blue. The young man who wrote it and who is to speak it is on the dole.
William Kenworthy started his education at an elementary school in Manchester in 1914, and finished it at an elementary school in the Midlands in 1922. For twelve years-from 1922 until the summer of last year-he had jobs in offices and factories.
Six months ago he would have staked his life on getting work inside a month. All the sharp enduring of a man who would work if he could is his. Rebuffs; long waits with hundreds of others, no replies to letters. Idleness-in the way at home-everlasting failure. The spectre of tomorrow-next year.
He looks at his world, and that of the millions like him, in which no light, no hope gives any promise for tomorrow. What is to become of him and of them ? In what lies their salvation ? Youth looks ahead-and tries to find it.

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.
