: Travel Talk: Life and Work: Tin from Bolivia

Ivor Thomas
You will find Bolivia - country without a coast - on your map hemmed in by Peru and Brazil, with Chile, Argentina, and Paraguay to the south. This afternoon Mr Ivor Thomas is to describe Bolivia, and its capital La Paz, the highest capital in the world. He will show the contrast between tin mining in such a place as Oruro, Bolivia's tin mining centre, and in Malaya, and tell you why Bolivia sends her tin to Britain for smelting. You have seen llamas at the Zoo. In the mining districts of Bolivia they are used as pack animals. Mr Thomas will tell you about a mountain peak half as high again as Mont Blanc, and of a lake 12,000 feet above sea level on which Indians go afloat in a native boat made of bulrushes.

: THE NATIONAL ALLOTMENTS SOCIETY DINNER

Lord PHILLIMORE will propose the Toast of the ' NATIONAL ALLOTMENTS
SOCIETY '
The Right Hon. Sir FRANCIS DYKE ACLAND, Bt., M.P., will reply
Relayed from The New Corn Exchange, Brighton
Allotment holders began to organise about thirty years ago, but it was during the War that the movement spread to town as well as country, and in 1920 1 1/2 million allotments were under cultivation in England and Wales.
Afterwards allotments began to decline in number, and in ten years about half a million were taken for building and other public purposes. A good deal of the land thus lost was, of course, used for council-house gardens, so it did not all go out of cultivation. In 1930, in view of the increasing demands of the builder and the very insecure tenure of allotments, the original Agricultural Organisation Society and the National Union of Allotment Holders joined forces and were amalgamated as the National Allotments Society, which is holding its annual banquet tonight.
The Society, in conjunction with the Society of Friends, is working the Government's Allotments for Unemployed scheme, and it is appropriate that Lord Phillimore, who is so interested in allotments for the Unemployed, should propose the toast this evening. It will be replied to by Sir Francis Dyke Acland, the first and present President of the Society who has provided a Challenge Cup that will be awarded to the area making the greatest advancement in the course of the year.

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.
