Regional Geography The Monsoon Lands
6 — ' Java '
ERNEST YOUNG
A year ago Mr. Ernest Young spent several months in the East Indies, pottering about from one island to another in a cargo boat. The first island he visited was Java which listeners will see clearly marked on the map on page 27 of the pamphlet.
He will describe where he landed and how he went to see the ruins of the Hindu temple shown on this page. He will explain why there are so many Hindu temples in Java when the Javanese are not Indians, but come from Malayan stock.
Then there are Arabs there and he will explain their coming-and the coming of the Dutch who were to transform Java. They lived, and still live, happily with the Javanese and inter-marry with them.
' The Dutch have, in fact, taken so much care of the welfare of the Javanese and the cultivation of the soil that Java is now one of the wealthiest and most densely peopled parts of the earth.'

Anthem, How beauteous are their feet
(Stanford)
How beauteous are their feet, Who stand on Zion's Hill,
Who bring salvation in their tongues, And words of peace instil.
How happy are our ears
That hear this joyful sound,
Which Kings and prophets waited for, And sought, but never found.
How blessed are our eyes
That see this heavenly light,
Prophets and Kings desired it long, But died without the sight.
But Lord makes bare His arm Through all the earth abroad, Let every nation now behold Their Saviour, and their God.
Hymn, The Son of Consolation (E.H.
222)

What do you Think ?
English Prisons a Belgian View, by M. PAUL CORNIL
Inspector of Penal Institutions in Belgium
It is part of an international scheme that year by year heads of the prison system in one country visit another to inspect the prisons there, and that the visit is returned.
Last year German prison officials visited England and British officials went out to Germany. This year it is the turn of Belgium. In September British officials are to return the visit which the Belgians are making to this country now.
M. Paul Cornil , Inspector of Penal
Institutions in Belgium, is one of a deputation of ten over here to visit British prisons, and he is to speak of what he has seen.

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.
