: Travellers All: Among the Mountains on India's North-West Frontier: I

Mrs. E.O. Lorimer
This morning in the first of four talks on the North-West Frontier Mrs. Lorimer is to describe how she and her husband twice made the arduous journey from Rawalpindi to Hunza, four days' march beyond Gilgit, among the immense mountains of the Hindu Kush and Karakoram-a journey by train and boat and pony, over passes very nearly as high as Mont Blanc, through heavy rain or snow.
For four years Lt.-Col. Lorimer was Political Agent in Gilgit, and Hunza was one of the provinces under his care. When he retired in 1924 he devoted five years to writing a book in three volumes on the Burushaski language; and two years ago a Leverhulme Research Fellowship enabled him to return to Hunza in a private capacity. He and Mrs. Lorimer were the first white man and white woman to learn the language, and in this interesting talk Mrs. Lorimer is to tell listeners how the women and children of Hunza became her friends.

' ... I left the city of Granada on the 12th day of May, in the same year of 1492, being Saturday, and came to the town of Palos which is a seaport: where I equipped three vessels well suited for such service : and departed from that port well supplied with provisions and with many sailors.....'
This is a translation of part of a letter written by Christopher Columbus to King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella of Spain when he set out to cross the Atlantic.
Todiy listeners will hear of his discovery of a ' new world ' and what this was to mean to the ' old world'.

: ' Almonds and Raisins'

A Jewish Revue
Devised by JOSEPH G. HALTER
Cast includes
MONA LEE , EUGENIE HARRIS , RYINKA FELCZER, HENRI MONDI, AL BURNETT and THE JEWISH REVUE CHORUS and THE BBC VARIETY ORCHESTRA
Conducted by JOSEPH G. HALTER
Here is a special feature—music, artists, chorus all Jewish ; many of the words in Yiddish. But in case those who do not understand Yiddish might hesitate to tune in, let it be said that everything in Yiddish will be explained by the compere, and everything will be understood.
The music is of all kinds-the more serious traditional melodies will be contrasted with humour. There will be a medley of Jewish folk songs sung in the language of the country-Russia, Rumania, Poland, and so on, and these will be sung by a Hebrew girl, Ryinka Felczer , who has broadcast with the Cafe Colette. A new tenor, Henri Mondi , is to make his radio debut. Much of the music has been composed by Joseph G. Halter , who has devised the programme.
A Jewish revue chorus has been specially got together. The title Almonds and Raisins has been chosen as it is the name of a well-known traditional Jewish melody.

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.
