: The Life of Caroline Chisholm LINDA LITTLEJOHN

This morning listeners are to hear a talk about Caroline Chisholm , who was a sort of Forence Nightingale to British girls arriving in Australia in the 'forties.
It worried her that no arrangements were made for them ; that they arrived -at one time to the number of 600-and wandered about without suitable accommodation or work. She was an Englishwoman, whose early married life was spent in Sydney, Australia, where her husband, an army officer, was stationed ; and seeing the plight of these young women arriving in the colony, she appealed to the Governor, who referred to her as a ' lady labouring under amiable delusions '.
Mrs. Littlejohn-Australia's leading feminist and a noted broadcaster in the Dominion-is to tell listeners how seven years later the Governor reversed his opinion, and how, both in Australia and when she got back to England. Caroline Chisholm earned the title of ' First Minister of Emigration '.

'The Evening Rise'
Fly Fishing on the Test
A Descriptive Commentary broadcast from the River Bank near Romsey Here is rather more than a sports talk-listeners are to hear not only an angler and an observer talking together while the former casts a May-fly to catch a trout, but they will be able to visualise the peaceful atmosphere of a summer evening on the Test, and hear birds, the flow of the water, the lowing of a cow, the sound of the reel. Here' is something to appeal both to anglers and to lovers of the country.

'In Town Tonight' and The Radio Gazette
A Review of Events at Home and Abroad arranged by H. L. FLETCHER
This is the thirty-fifth edition of the Saturday Magazine and the hundredth edition of ' In Town Tonight'. Tonight's broadcast will be the last of the present series. It is hoped that both will be resumed in October.
Hundreds of interesting people have appeared in ' In Town Tonight' since it started in November, 1933. It has given name, fame, and publicity to many-among them Gypsy Petulengro, Gilbert Rumbold , and Mrs. Albert Rogers (the original Mademoiselle from Armentieres). Ruston and Steele, two public house entertainers from Limehouse, appeared in it at Radiolympia, memorised the show, and are now running a concert party made up of people who are all unemployed.

STUART ROBERTSON , CHORUS, AND ORCHESTRA
Thomas Wood 's choral work 'Merchantmen' was written in Essex and partly at sea in the North Atlantic on the way to Newfoundland and back again. The words of all five movements are by the composer with the exception of No. 3, ' Frankie's Trade ', which is taken from Rudyard Kipling 's ' Rewards and Fairies '. ' Roll and Go ' is an anchor song, technically correct ; ' Skerryvore ' is descriptive of a lonely rock off the Scottish coast. ' The Coral Sea ' is a personal recollection of sailing there and is inscribed ' In happy memory of I47°E. i8"S. and the men I sailed with and the ship we sailed in, through the Barrier and into the Pacific, January, 1932.' ' Waddle-0, a Frolic' is a variant of the North Country legend which tells how a seaman left the sea to follow the plough and regretted it.

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.
