Regional Geography
'The Monsoon Lands: China and Japan-China: 4, The Red Basin
G. B. BARBOUR, Ph.D.
The highway to the Province of the Four Streams lies up through the Yangtze Gorges, where the river may rise 200 feet at flood-water, and where boats are man-handled up rapids by half-a-hundred coolies straining at bamboo hawsers. Beyond lies the 'Garden of West China' at the foot of the ranges of West Szechwan. Near by are the famous salt-wells, some of which took three generations to drill ; the brine is led through bamboo pipes to cauldrons, where it is boiled by natural gas. Our Chinese friend,
Mr. Ch'en, will recite the sonnet of the exile from Szechwan, written by the famous poet, Li Po, in A.D. 750.

: World History—

' The Industrial Revolution'
EILEEN POWER, Professor of Economic
History in the University of London
Industrial Revolution is the term given by historians for convenience to that process whereby Britain was turned from a country that was mainly agricultural to one that was mainly occupied in the production of manufactured goods for export to the whole world. It coincided with the development of steam power and the invention of new types of machinery, and led to the sudden growth of great industrial areas and to many complicated economic problems that have never been finally solved. This afternoon Professor Eileen Power will deal in detail with the causes and the results of the Industrial Revolution, and explain why it happened first of all in Britain, and why it spread so rapidly to the continent of Europe, to America, and finally to Asia.

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.
