Regional Geography

Tropical America from Mexico to
Brazil
' The West Indies '
L. DUDLEY STAMP , D.Sc.
This morning L. Dudley Stamp is to tell the story of a voyage he made from England to the West Indies on a modern banana boat. Something about the trip ; Barbados and its sugar plantations; Trinidad and its cocoa and oil ; Jamaica and its great banana trade-all will be described in this talk, to say nothing of the journey home. Not-the least interesting, if ironical, part of it was that though Mr. Stamp came back with a cargo of ten million bananas, he couldn't get one to eat.

2.5 Your Home and Mine
' How shall we build our House ? '
GEOFFREY BOUMPHREY
Last term Geoffrey Boumphrey talked chiefly about houses of the past, and revealed something of the long story that lies behind our own houses. This term he is going to explore all the different parts of a house and discover the different ways in which each is made.
You must not think that Mr.
Boumphrey is going to do it all. He can't possibly visit every home in the land. So he wants you to help him by keeping your eyes and ears open and by always thinking ' Why? ' If you come across anything especially interesting, he hopes that you will write to him about it, and even send him a photograph.
He hopes he is going to know more about houses, as well as about you, before the year is ended!

' Pushkin and the Russian Novel'
Desmond MacCarthy
Just a hundred years ago-on February 8, 1837-Alexander Pushkin was mortally wounded in a duel fought ' in defence of his wife's honour'; two days later he died. Thanks to an anonymous letter-writer, the greatest figure in Russian literature was killed at the age of thirty-eight.
The well-read Englishman has at least a nodding acquaintance with Tolstoy, Dostoevsky, Turgenev, and Tchekov; novels and prose plays are translatable. But Pushkin, who bulks larger than any of these in the history of Russian literature as a whole, is known to a much narrower circle, mainly because a great proportion of his work was in verse. He was equally a master of the poetic play, the dramatic sketch, the novel, the short story, the narrative poem, and the tiny lyric, and it is typical of his versatility that of his two best-known novels one, ' Eugene Onegin ', is a contemporary story in verse, while the other, ' The Captain's Daughter', is an historical novel in vivid prose.

: ' SHAKESPEARE'

' The Theatre from Then till Now'
Harold Child
Last week, in the opening talk of this new series, listeners heard how Shakespeare was acted in his own day. This evening Harold Child is to carry the story on through the eighteenth century (when David Garrick played Shakespeare in what was then modern dress) to the colour and spectacle and pageantry of Irving's and Tree's productions.
Harold Child , has been a writer on The Times and The Times Literary Supplement since 1902. He was dramatic critic to The Observer from 1912 to 1920, and has contributed to ' The New Cambridge Shakespeare ' and to publications of the Royal Society of Literature and the Shakespeare Association.

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.
