: For The Schools: Regional Geography: New England

G.B. Barbour, Ph.D.
The whole of North America in four hours! That is the actual amount of time Dr. George Barbour will be on the air for the geography of a country eighty times the size of Great Britain.
It can't be done, he says; and yet after all, we know a good deal about
Canada and the United States already, for many of the people in the New
World are our own folk and left the 'old country', comparatively speaking,' only a few years ago.
Last week Dr. Barbour introduced New York City; today he is to talk about New England. He will talk of the Pilgrim Fathers and of the poor rocky soil they found. It was a far cry from Plymouth, Eng., to Plymouth Mass., to find England - a new England for them.
He will also talk of conditions today on the one hand of the thinly peopled highlands, worked-out farms and immigrant labour, and on the other hand of prosperous apple-orchards, dairy-farms, tobacco-fields. He will talk of whaling and fishing ports, water power, paper mills; shoe, textile, and small metal factories; of Boston and the New England tradition.
On September 18 the Tercentenary of Harvard University was celebrated. In honour of the event, Dr. Barbour is to bring to the microphone a Harvard man to say something of the New England from which he comes.

'Roads'
Illustrated Talk written by HUGH Ross WILLIAMSON
Before the Roman came to Rye or out to Severn strode,
The rolling English drunkard made the rolling
English road.
A reefing road, a rolling road.that rambles lound theshire,
And after him the parson ran, the sexton and the squire;
A merry road, a mazy road, and such as we did tread
The night we went to Birmingham by way of Beachy Head.
Listeners will hear today how straight roads were first made in England instead of ones like that described by G. K. Chesterton. They will hear how the Romans built them and what they used them for when they were built; and about the goods and people who passed along the road, where they came from, and where they went.

: Book Talk George Moore

by DESMOND MACCARTHY
George Moore is best known as the author of ' Esther Waters ', a book famous for its realism and human sympathy, and of ' The Brook Kerith ', an imaginative reconstruction of the life of Joseph of Arimathaea. He was an Irishman, a great stylist, and a great story-teller-also a great character about whom Charles Morgan has recently written a most entertaining essay.
As Hone's life of George Moore was
.published at the beginning of this week,, Desmond MacCarthy is taking the opportunity to talk about his books, and about the man himself as he was at his home in Ebury Street, where MacCarthy was a frequent visitor.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
