Mountaineering Today
N. E. Odell
It is generally agreed that modern mountaineering started in 1886, with the first ascent of Nape's Needle on Great Gable, Cumberland. Just a year ago-on April 12, 1936-W. P. Haskett-Smith repeated his pioneer ascent of fifty years before. This afternoon N. E. Odell will discuss the achievements and surviving problems of modern climbing. He is one of the best known of present-day mountaineers, and has had experience of climbing in many parts of the world. He was a member of the ill-fated Everest Expedition of 1924, when Mallory and Irvine-died on the mountain. During that expedition Mr. Odell spent a night on Everest completely alone at a height of 25,300 feet.

A series of talks about the countryside
Rooks and Rookeries
Eric Parker
Some rooks remain in their rookery during the winter, but most of them roost in deep woods. They pay occasional visits to their rookery early in the year, before beginning to build in earnest in March. They differ in habit from crows, and Eric Parker will tell listeners how to distinguish a rook from a crow. He will say something about the food rooks eat and discuss the question as to whether they do harm or good.

: THE FEDERATION OF BRITISH INDUSTRIES DINNER

The Prime Minister, the Right Hon.
STANLEY BALDWIN speaking at the dinner given in his honour, from Grosvenor House, Park Lane
Listeners are to hear the speech of the Prime Minister at the dinner at Grosvenor House given by the Federation of British Industries to him as a personal tribute. It is not to pay honour to the Rt. Hon.
Stanley Baldwin as a statesman, as a Prime Minister, or as a Conservative, but to pay tribute to him as a man. Lord Hirst, President of the Federation, has invited representatives of all sections of the business life of the country to associate themselves with the Federation in this rare compliment. The Federation represents the manufacturing side of British industry, but other sides will be represented at the dinner. Nearly a thousand people will be there, among them representatives of the Chambers of Commerce, the Chamber of Shipping, the Chairman of the Joint Stock Banks, the Bar (represented by the Lord Chief Justice, the President of the Bar Council, and the Chairman of the Law Society), Members of the Import Duties Advisory Committee, the Chairmen of the Railway Companies, and the Stock Exchange.

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.
