Regional Geography
The New World
South America-The Southern
Republics
' Cattle Lands of Uruguay and Central Argentina '
L. DUDLEY STAMP, D.Sc.
Talks last term dealt with that part of South America lying in the tropics. Talks this term will deal with the cooler countries in South America lying outside the tropics, Uruguay, Argentina, and Chile. This morning Dr. Dudley Stamp will describe the voyage from last term's stopping-place, Santos, the coffee Port of Brazil, to Montevideo, the capital of Uruguay. He will talk about the people and characteristics of the latter country, the coast lands and great cattle lands, and the chilling factories where they make ' bully beef '-the canned meat so well known (too well known, some of your fathers may tell you!) during the years of war.

: WORDS FAIL ME

Craftsmanship
Mrs. Virginia Woolf
In Virginia Woolf's opinion, craftsmanship is a word that can be applied to the making of pots and pans, but not to words in the way in which writers use them. There is a distinction to be made between the useful use of words and their literary use. The novelist and the scientist use words very differently. Mrs. Woolf is a believer in the importance of a large choice of words, but she deplores all attempts to teach people how to write. '

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.
