Regional Geography
' The Monsoon Lands'— 'India '
12-' The Indo-Chinese Borderlands'
J. N. L. BAKER , Lecturer in Geography in the University of Oxford, and Sir
GEORGE DUNBAR , Bt.
This afternoon J. N. L. Baker will introduce to listeners Sir George Dunbar , the soldier-explorer. Sir George was a member of the 1912 expedition that set out to explore the source of the Brahmaputra. He has many interesting stories to tell. For over three years he was in the hills north of Assam. And all this time, as he will explain, he was never really dry once ! At a place called Cherrapungi the depth of rain over a period of twelve months was more than seventy feet. In the course of his duties Sir George learnt a great deal about the hillmen-tribes who can count only up to forty on their fingers and toes and have to use little bundles of sticks to calculate any further.

Discovering England
' South Lancashire'
3—'The People and their Work '
JOHN HILTON , Professor of Industrial Relations in the University of Cambridge
Ask the average Lancastrian where he is working, and, if he is lucky enough to be in a job, he will probably give one of four answers : ' Deawn t' pit', ' Up at t' forge ', ' In t' works ', or ' In t' mill '. For Lancashire is the county for coal, steel, machinery, and cotton.
This afternoon John Hilton will talk about these industries and the thousands of people who work in them. Many towns have spread so much that they run into one another, with not a green field between them. But the wise Lancashire folk can still find rugged moors from which the lark soars into the clear sky, lovely cuntry-side unspoilt by chimneys and smoke.

: World History - 12

' Europe spreads East and West'
EILEEN POWER, Professor of Economic
History in the University of London
Europeans sailed to distant lands centuries ago in vessels that would look pathetically tiny beside a small tramp steamer of today. It is probable that the Norse sea-rovers reached America long before Christopher Columbus's famous voyage of 1492. Every voyage was' an adventure. Yet there were always men who never hesitated to hazard their lives to explore and trade. And sometimes whole families emigrated to avoid political and religious oppression. In 1620, for instance, the Mayflower sailed from Southampton and arrived in the New World after an exciting voyage of sixty-five days. Europeans ventured eastwards, too, long before the formation of East Indian companies.

JOHN MCKENNA (tenor)
GWENDOLEN MASON (harp)
Gwendolen Mason is professor and examiner at the Royal Academy of Music and is well known in Britain and abroad as a gifted soloist. One of her great admirers is Dame Ethel Smyth , who has written for Miss Mason several elaborate harp parts in her operas and songs. Miss Mason has on several occasions played Ravel's Septet with the composer, notably when the degree of Doctor of Music was conferred on him by the University of Oxford.
John McKenna has given many recitals in London and has appeared at a number of important concerts, including the Royal Philharmonic Society in 1928, and for four years he sang in opera at Covent Garden. During the war Mr. McKenna served in France, and shortly after the Armistice he entered the Royal College of Music, where he studied for four years. He then went for two years to Italy and later to Germany.
At Leipzig he was engaged by Professor Straube, the Cantor of the Thomas-Kirche, to sing at the Bach Festival in 1931.

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.
