Round the Countryside
'Owls'
C. C. CADDUM
Today C. C. Gaddum is to discuss that interesting bird the owl, and he will explain its characteristics-its soft feathers that make for noiseless flight, its alert sight and hearing, its partiality for the night, its manner of bolting its food and casting up the pellets. He will describe the two commonest owls to be found in Britain : the brown or tawny or wood owl that will perch in a tree outside your window and wake you in the dead of night with its eerie hoot; the barn or white or screech owl, so called because it roosts in barns or old buildings, is white underneath, and occasionally emits a weird loud scream as it glides through the dusk.
Finally, he will say something of the much maligned little owl, introduced into Britain rather less than a century ago, yet surprisingly common today.
Teachers will find it helpful to have illustrations of these three kinds of owls to show their class.

Kingsford-Smith Lost
KENNETH ADAM
Twelve months ago the world was shocked to hear of the disappearance over the Indian Ocean of Kingsford-Smith, famous Australian airman, in an attempt on his own record from the Mother Country to the Commonwealth.
In the year that has passed, the links in the Imperial air chain, which 'Smithy' in his gallant pioneering flights helped to forge, have been put to successful proof. The new weekly service to Australia and the twice-weekly time-table to South Africa, also new this year, have been supplemented by such record-breaking flfghts as Jean Batten 's and that of Scott and Guthrie. The ]one pilot, now the trails are blazed, still acts as a spur to commercial aviation.
In the same way Mollison's Atlantic
' hop ', as remarkable for the ease of its performance as for its daring, brings nearer the day of a regular Atlantic service, for which, indeed, tests are now being carried out.
Today Kenneth Adam will tell the story of the year's achievements in the air.

' Studying Cosmic Rays '
P. M. S. BLACKETT , F.R.S.
(Professor of Physics, Birkbeck College,
University of London)
Tonight Professor Blackett, Professor of Physics at the Birkbeck College, University of London, since 1933, is to give a talk on a subject which for thirty-three years has occupied hundreds of research workers all over the world. Cosmic rays are radiations having a shorter wavelength and greater penetrative power than any previously investigated, and so called because their source appears to be interstellar spaces.
Our ignorance about them is still tremendous, but what has been discovered is enthralling enough. It appears that the earth is bombarded in all directions by atomic particles. Where do they come from ? We do not know. How are they produced ? We know still less. Listeners are to hear all that is known about them, and just why they are interesting scientists everywhere.

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.
