Tracing History Backwards
4-' Leisure '
K. C. BOSWELL
Last week Commander King-Hall spoke of leisure nowadays, when more and more work is being done by machinery, and people have more spare time than they had in the past. This morning Mr. K. C. Boswell is to go back to the days when most people at any rate had very little spare time indeed, and even less in mediaeval times when there was no artificial fighting as we know it, to make enjoyment possible in the winter evenings.
The British people have always known how to enjoy their holidays and sport, and Mr. Boswell will tell listeners how people did enjoy themselves in the past in the time of Eliza- beth, in the eighteenth century, and again in the nineteenth. He will say something of the origin of our national holidays and festivals, and describe the rise of modem sport in the nineteenth century.

: Nature Study Round the Country-side 6—'Making and Keeping an Aquarium' C. C. GADDUM

This afternoon Mr. Gaddum is to tell listeners how to make an aquarium, and the cheapest possible way to set about it. He will tell them how to keep the water fresh. There are animals that will live peacefully together and there are those that will kill each other if placed in the same aquarium. Mr. Gaddum will talk about both, and about the fish called the stickle-back and the curious nest it makes. Finally, he will give a short account of other curious pond animals, which can easily be made to live in captivity.
Teachers will find it helpful to have illustrations or specimens of pond-weed, water snails, stickle-backs and a horse-leech to show their class.

: Down to the Sea in Ships Sea Communications The Question at Issue Sir ALAN ANDERSON, G.B.E.

This evening Sir Alan Anderson , of the Orient Line, is to describe the romance of the evolution of shipping in the last hundred years. He will take as his text the cost that enters into the plans of every problem of sea trade— the revenue and profit and loss. ' Rather a sad text today,' as he says, ' because shipowners are in the grip of deep depression '. In his talk today, and in a second talk next week, Sir Alan will explain the reasons for this deep depression-bad trade-the failure of competitors enabling new owners to buy ships at bankrupt prices and enter the competition at cut rates -the fortunes spent by various nations on uneconomic competition.
And finally, he will discuss the question of subsidies which no one pretends are a cure for the disease, though ' the experience of one year has shown that the tramp shipowners have learned the lesson of adversity and have been helped by their subsidy to enforce co-operation, and discipline in their own ranks '.

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.
