Regional Geography
' The Monsoon Lands '. India
8—' Bombay and the Western Ghats ' J. N. L. BAKER , Lecturer in Geography in the University of Oxford'
This morning Mr. J. N. L. Baker is to discuss the Bombay Deccan, the Ghats (or mountain ranges), and the coast, where the heavy rainfall is in striking contrast with the slight rainfall inland, with very different effects on the vegetation.
He will tell listeners about the difficulties of navigation on the west coast, and describe Bombay Island and its harbour, the construction of the modern port, and the vast trade of the city. The railways up to the Ghats and the hydro-electric power the Ghats supply, the industries of Bombay which is the gateway of India from the West-these and many more things of interest will be discussed by Mr.
Baker.

' The Mogul Empire in India '
EILEEN POWER , Professor of Economic
History in the University of London
It was Babur who was the first monarch of the great Mogul Empire in India. He began his life of conquest by defeating the forces of the Delhi Sultan. He gained this important victory despite the fact that his troops were vastly inferior in numbers. When he died in 1530 his territory stretched from the Oxus to the frontier of Bengal and from Gwalior to the Himalayas. This afternoon Professor Eileen Power will tell listeners all about him and his successors-and the eventual collapse of the Empire.

: Ways and Means-7 ' What Do We Spend Our Money On ? ' GEOFFREY CROWTHER

The question that Geoffrey Crowther will try to answer this evening involves important economic issues. The greater part of the nation's expenditure, of course, goes to provide the necessaries and the minor luxuries of life. Food, rent, and clothing are still the largest items, but significant changes in family budgets are now making themselves felt. Geoffrey Crowther will emphasise that if the standard of living is to be maintained, the nation must see that it also spends part of its income on maintaining and extending its stock of capital goods, such as roads, and power and manufacturing plant.

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.
