Regional Geography
The Monsoon Lands
'7—' Borneo, Sumatra, and Celebes '
ERNEST YOUNG and TOM HARRISSON Sumatra, Borneo, Celebes-these islands of the Dutch East Indies lie in this order from west to east in the South China Seas, and are the subject of Mr. Ernest Young 's talk this morning. He is to describe his landing at Macassar in the island of Celebes after going on from Java (described last week) and he will tell listeners about the coral islands near this part of the coast, and about the peak 10,000 feet high overlooking the low, flat shore with its villages and rice fields.
Large parts of these islands have never been explored — mountains, forests, deep swift rivers make travelling almost impossible. But Mr. Young is to bring to the microphone this morning Mr. Tom Harrisson , who achieved the feat of penetrating into the heart of Borneo.

Sin" joyfully unto God our strength ; Sina loud unto the God of Jacob.

For this is a statute for Israel, and a law of the God of Jacob.

Heinrich August Marschner (1795-1861) was, next to Weber and Spohr, one of the most important of the German ' romantic ' school of opera-composers. Though he had written earlier operas, The Vampire (produced at Leipzig in 1828) was his first work in the new Weberian vein. Its subject was very much in the popular taste for ' raw heads and bloody bones ', and it had an enormous success. It was produced in English at the London Lyceum in August, 1829, and ran for sixty nights.
D'Indy 's Karadec Suite is drawn from his incidental music to a play of Breton life produced at the Theatre Modcrne, Paris, in 1892. Scored for a small orchestra, it is one of d'lndy's most attractive minor works.

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.
