: THE DAILY SERVICE

From page 12 of ' When Two or Three '

: Week-Ends at Work

The London Telephone Service and the Underground Railways
LONDON TELEPHONE SERVICE. The speaker is a supervisor at the International Exchange at Faraday Building in the City of London. She is in touch with almost every country in the world. Here at the busiest hours 134 operators are on duty on international calls, and over fifty in the peak hours of the week-ends. She and the girls under her carry on throughout the daytime of Saturday and Sunday, men taking over at night. They may be in conversation with any part of the world, with ships at sea. She finds telephone work never dull, but pays tribute to the operators in the small exchanges who are just as essential if those who live in a small town wish to speak oversea. Without the telephone, modern life would lose one of its chief characteristics, and what with changes in our weather altering plans, last-minute shopping, week-end sport, and so forth, telephone operators are at their busiest during the week-end.
The UNDERGROUND. The speaker is employed by the Transport .Board as a Power Signal Linesman on the Underground. At the time when the world thinks of play he takes up his duty in a secluded- depot underneath Piccadilly Circus. Trains are running at 1 to 2 minute intervals ; news comes to him over the telephone of a defect with the signals somewhere on the lines. He makes for the spot and it is in the ordinary course of events to detect the defect and put it right within three minutes.....
When the last train has gone through the tunnels they become a hive ot industry-men testing the signals, gauging and examining the train stops, cleaning and oiling the gear. On Saturday nights all big renewals and alterations are done because on Sunday mornings trains start later. This talk will show how every device known to science and ceaseless vigilance have won for the Underground a reputation for speed and complete safety.

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.
