Regional Geography
'The Andean Republics '-2
' Highland Basins '
L. DUDLEY STAMP , D.Sc.
Last week you heard about the Desert Coastlands of the Andean Republics; today you are to hear about the Highland Basins. You will travel by rail from Mollendo through South Peru. Dr. Dudley Stamp will show you the landscape on either side, changing all the time from arid desert to the grandeur of volcanoes. A wait at Arequipa, where you will see the most modern form of transport in the shape of aeroplanes with one of the most ancient in the shape of llamas, the beasts of burden used by the people of the Andes.
On again, the train ascending all the time until it 'reaches a level as high as the highest mountain in Europe. Then 'down to Lake Titicaca, which you will cross by steamer, leaving at night and arriving on the Bolivian side in the morning. So on to La Paz , where more than three-quarters of the population are Indians, and at last you will reach Oruro and visit one of the tin mines up in the mountains.

: ' SHAKESPEARE'

' The Scholar's Contribution to the Theatre'
J. Dover Wilson
J. Dover Wilson, Regius Professor of Rhetoric and English Literature at Edinburgh University and a prominent Shakespearean scholar, is to show how scholars in the library and producers and actors in the theatre are at last working closer together, with the result that performances are becoming much nearer what Shakespeare intended them to be. He is a trustee of Shakespeare's birthplace, and among his publications are ' Life in Shakespeare's England', 'The Essential Shakespeare ', ' The Manuscript of Shakespeare's Hamlet and the Problems of its Transmission ', and ' What Happens in Hamlet', while he has edited (with Professor A. W. Pollard ) 'The Stolen and Surreptitious Shakespearean Texts ', and (with Sir Arthur Quiller-Couch ) is editing ' The New Shakespeare '.

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.
