Regional Geography

'Herdsmen of the Siberian Steppes'
BOSWORTH GOLDMAN
This is the first of three talks by Mr. Bosworth Goldman on People of Siberia, that vast stretch of country to the East of Russia associated in our minds with political exile.
Mr. Goldman knows this country well, and he will describe this afternoon the Kasak-Khirghiz of Central Asia. Look at your map and you will see Khirghiz Steppe running from left to right above the Caspian Sea and the Sea of Aral.
Here in a region of great mountains and dry plains, where the climate varies from intense heat in summer to bitter cold in winter, trade has changed the habits of the people. Mr. Goldman will say something about their lives-their flocks and encampments, where Elders are to be seen riding their bulls.

' Tadpoles, Frogs, and Toads '
ERIC PARKER
This afternoon Mr. Eric Parker is to tell you how and where frogs spend the winter ; how, when, and where they breed ; how frog-spawn develops into tadpoles, and tadpoles into frogs. Probably many of you have watched the process in a glass bowl. Out of the blobs of jelly appear little fellows with tails. And you go to the pond for weed for them, and submerge in the bowl a speck of meat on a thread, and change the water ; and when some of them grow and some of them disappear, you have a shrewd idea that the survivors are cannibals.
But it is quite exciting when their legs begin to grow and their tails drop off and at last they are frogs.
Mr. Parker will tell you what becomes of the young frogs every year, and how frogs feed.
He will show you how a frog differs from a toad, and frog-spawn from toad-spawn, and give you an idea of the length of their live.

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.
