Out of the Depths
Kenneth Adam
On April 20, 1936, the rescue was announced of two men, Dr. Robertson and Mr. Alfred Scadding , from their entombment in a gold mine at Moose River, Canada. For over a week, rescue parties had toiled feverishly to reach the imprisoned men. This afternoon Kenneth Adam will recall this incident, which aroused wide interest throughout the New World and in Europe, and will also talk about other near escapes and adventure thrills of recent times.

Eric Parker will discuss hedgehogs, badgers, and otters — animals that existed before man. He will speak of the habits of hedgehogs, their courage and confidence, their absolute fearlessness of ourselves. As for badgers, he will speak of their cleanliness and homeliness, their diversity of diet, the probability that they are more numerous than people think, and the question as to whether they do any harm. Finally, he will speak of otters, wild as well as tame, and some tame otters he has known.

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.
