: Ⓓ Sports Talk 'Out with the Teasers ' H. E. TOWNER-COSTON

This evening H. E. Towner-Coston , the fishery expert, is to describe how he was initiated into big game fishing in New Zealand waters. In his first encounter he battled for forty minutes with a monster that another monster won ; in his second he was successful in landing a shark.
Swordfish, marlins, broadbills, king-fish, he has caught them all-great fish scaling nearly 1,000 pounds. ' Teasers ', by the way. are contrivances for teasing the giants to the surface when they are withdrawn in favour of the baited hook. Towner-Coston was most things in New Zealand for years. He is now back in England and the manager of a well-known fishery on the Test.

: ' SIR THOMAS MORE '

Sir Thomas More. first lay Chancellor of England, was born in 1477-8, the only surviving son of Sir John More , a barrister living in Cheapside. School in Threadneedle Street ; Oxford for a time ; then back to London and called to the Bar. The most witty and cultured man of his day met his future master when Henry, afterwards Henry VIII , was a boy of nine, who blushed to receive a poem, little knowing that he would have anything worse to blush for.
In 1504 Thomas More became a Member of Parliament ; in 1509 Henry became King. In 1521 More was knighted. In 1523, he was elected Speaker of the House of Commons. The remainder of More's life depended on Henry's insistence to divorce Catherine of Aragon and marry Anne Boleyn. His attitude on the Oath of Supremacy further incurred the displeasure of both Henry and Cromwell. In 1534 he was committed to the Tower where he remained until his death on Tower Hill the following 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
