Travel Talks
Southern Europe-7
' The Bay of Naples '
CLIFFORD COLLINSON
In contrast to the plains of Lombardy and the Campagna which were the subjects of the last two Travel Talks, today's talk on Naples will cover one of the most densely populated plains in Europe, called by the Italians Terra di Lavore, or the land of labour -a title which speaks for itself. Here is a patchwork of fields under intensive cultivation, where wheat and vegetables grow side by side. The compact towns, dotted about the plain, are a feature of the landscape, and listeners will see them through the eyes of Clifford Collinson and his doughty companion George. George, by the way, is to climb
Vesuvius. The mule-boys persuade their mules up the mountain with loud imprecations (and at the same time get a pull up by hanging on to the animals' tails).

J. B. S. HALDANE , F.R.S., Professor of Genetics in the University of London
Sixth Form listeners will remember
Professor Haldane's'interesting talk on ' Plants and Animals in Human History' on February 7. Today he is to discuss the physiology of keeping cool. How do you keep cool-in hot weather in England, in the tropics, in a stokehole ?
He has had personal experience of great heat, for he served in Mesopotamia during the War.
Professor Haldane has been Professor of Genetics at University College, London University, since 1923, and has been head of the Genetical Depart-i ment at the John Innes Horticultural
I Institution since 1927. 1

: In your Garden

C. H. MIDDLETON
Possibly, C. H. Middleton has introduced no more popular broadcaster to the microphone than A. E. Burgess , and the reason is not far to seek. Nearly everyone has a lawn. It may be pocket-handkerchief size, but it is still a lawn, and there is no greater authority on making lawns and keeping them in order than A. E. Burgess , who is Horticultural Superintendent to the Surrey County Council and their lawn expert.
For those who have just moved into a new house with a small or large garden, there are two ways to begin-laying turf, or sowing seeds. The method of sowing by seed is infinitely preferred by C. H. Middleton , who devotes no less than twenty-two pages to lawns in his popular text book, * Outlines of a Small Garden '. Listeners wishing to make lawns should do two things: (1) Read his advice; (2) Listen to his discussion this evening with A. E. Burgess.

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.
