House Management : Rotherham

Estate Manager -
Nearly a quarter of the dwelling houses in Rotherham are public property. The borough was one of the first towns to prepare a scheme for the total abolition of its slums, and it was one of the first to employ women as managers of its housing properties.

2.5 Round the Countryside
' Brock the Badger '
C. C. Gaddum
This afternoon C. C. Gaddum is to tell his listeners something about a creature that most people know by name but have very rarely seen-the badger, often nicknamed by country people ' Brock '. He is a nocturnal animal, very shy and retiring, only coming out at dusk in search of food. Mr. Gaddum will talk about his own personal experiences with a badger family, which he discovered and watched during a whole summer in a wood near his home.
Teachers might with advantage have an illustration of a badger to show their classes.

: THIS WAS NEWS

' Polar Discovery'
Sir Hubert Wilkins
A year ago today Lincoln Ellsworth and Hollick-Kenyon arrived in Melbourne in the Discovery II, which had taken them off the Ice Edge after their famous flight across the Antarctic continent.
This afternoon
Sir Hubert Wilkins , who was in command of the Wyatt Earp , the expedition's base ship at the time, will discuss the general question of polar exploration. What have recent expeditions contributed to our knowledge of the Poles ? What still remains to be done ? No one is better qualified by practical experience to answer these questions than Sir Hubert, who was with Stefannsson in the Arctic and with Shackleton in the Antarctic, and who has himself led many notable expeditions.

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.
