: The Empire at Work

Once again four of the Empire's workers are to show the Empire at work, from their personal experience.
Life in an Indian State
This Empire worker lived for six years in Hyderabad, working in the Indian Civil Service. One night he might be attending a party given by an Indian prince in conditions of inconceivable opulence; next day—150 miles off-he would be overhauling the accounts of a native co-operative society, a third of whose members were sunk in debt beyond hope.
Tobacco in Nyasaland
This worker had to supervise the seed, sowing, cultivation, grading of the leaf.
A district as big as Hertfordshire, about 7,000 natives growing, tobacco. He will tell of the curing of tobacco over open wood fires. Striking camp, his porters natives. On the march, high grass depositing ticks in his arms and legs. Day after day-through most of the year.
District Officer in Malaya
This speaker will describe work in a district that has vast areas of dense forests, and a dozen rubber estates; the smallholders Malays, the labourers mostly Chinese. An infinite variety of work, from administration of justice to assisting at a major operation on an elephant.
Tea Planting in Ceylon
In Ceylon, as opposed to Assam, there are no seasons of cropping. Tea is plucked and manufactured all the year round. A Ceylon tea planter is to describe an average day's work. Checking accounts, magistrate to his coolies, going round the fields, inspecting the factories, attending the mail, visiting the estate hospital.

: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

An Appeal on behalf of THE SUSSEX EYE HOSPITAL
By LEONARD NEVILLE
In commemoration of the centenary of the Sussex Eye Hospital three years ago, it was decided to build a new one adequate to the needs of the county it serves. The old building has only two wards-a men's and a women's.
It has no lift, no ward for septic cases, no children's ward, no proper accommodation for the nursing staff. In the new hospital, to be opened this year, all these necessary things are provided, and in addition, a paying ward for people who cannot afford nursing home fees.
This hospital is the only eye hospital in Sussex, and answers the call of visitors to Brighton and Hove from all parts of the country. Every effort has been made to pay off the debt on the new building before it is opened ; large sums have been contributed, but there is still needed a further sum of £7,000.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to [address removed]

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
