Regional Geography
'The Monsoon Lands'. India.
7-' Hyderabad '
J. N. L. BAKER , Lecturer in Geography in the University of Oxford
Today Mr. Baker is to talk about the State of Hyderabad, and he will tell listeners how it has two very different portions, the rocks and climate of the North-west or Maratwara differing from those of the South-east or Telan-Hina, and the peoples even speaking different languages.
He will explain how the Indians grow millet for their own use, and also grow tor sale (in the North) cotton and wheat, and (in the South) rice, for these are crops they can turn into money and they cannot afford to consume them. Finally, listeners will hear about the city of Hyderabad, which is the fourth largest city in India and was founded in the sixteenth century.

Colin Macleod Campbell , who is a member of a distinguished family of soldiers and sailors, was born in London in 1890. He studied at the Royal Academy of Music under Frederick Cordcr , and later took his Mus.Bac. at Oxford. In 1921 Campbell won great success with his one-act opera, Thais and Talmaæ, which was produced by the Carl Rosa Company in London and the Provinces. The Fantasy Suite, which was originally written as a children's Christmas ballet, is characteristic of Campbell's delicate fancy and charming melodic invention. (Soloist, E. BELL )

: FOR THE SCHOOLS

Discovering England
' The South-east Corner '
3-' The Sussex Downs '
S. P. B. MAIS
Last week Mr. S. P. B. Mais discussed the South-East coast in general ; today he is to take listeners to the South Downs, clearly marked on the map in the pamphlet above Arundel and Brighton. He will talk of their sheep and shepherds, their birds and flowers; he will describe a view from Chanctonbury Ring, and he will talk of juniper and yew. Then he will have something to say about the Downs before history began ; about British camps and flint mines and dew ponds. He will give a picture, on the one hand, of the town of Arundel with its magnificent Norman castle, and, on the other hand, of a downland village.
And the talk over, the younger listeners will have made their notes, and in the evening they can get out their survey books and put their thinking caps on. Is there a dew pond where they live ? Is there any outstanding landmark ? Why not make a sketch of it ? Are there any stone circles near their homes, and is there a legend about them ?
Then what about sheep ? If any, what breed are they ? How do they feed—in fields, hurdled in root crops, or do they roam over downs ? Has the listener ever talked to a shepherd ? What kind of man was he ? What is his life like ?

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.
