Towards the end of May, Discovery II arrived back at St. Catherine's Dock, London, from her fourth voyage to the Antarctic on behalf of the Discovery Research Committee acting on behalf of the Falkland Islands Government. Mr. Clowes, who went to the Antarctic as hydrologist on her last voyage and has been studying in his laboratory what was,brought back in 1935, will tell listeners why the Discovery goes to the Antarctic, what the voyage is like, what everyone does, and what clothes they take with them. He will have many interesting things to say about whales, and adventures, and the joy of getting home. He was at the dock the other day to welcome the Discovery back, and will tell some stories about this last trip, in addition to bringing to the microphone the Chief Officer of the Discovery, and also a scientist whose special study has been whales. Finally he will tell about the work that begins after her return-collating and studying specimens in the Natural History Museum.

: RESPONSIBILITIES OF EMPIRE

The Rt. Hon. David Lloyd
George, M.P.
To attempt to summarise the life and achievements of David Lloyd George within the space of a note is as impossible as it seems unnecessary. He may be a Welshman, Caernarvon Boroughs may have returned him to Parliament for forty-seven years, but he is a national and international figure, his name and features known to everyone.
Some know him banally as the 'Wizard of Wales ', some may have forgotten that he has been described as a greater War Minister than Pitt ; all can tell of his eloquence ; but the thing apt to be overlooked in this man, who in power of place was second to none in the world in 1918, is the fact that a quarter of a century ago he was the driving force behind every social reform of our time.
Four years ago he broadcast in the notable series 'Whither Britain?'; tonight he is to speak in a series as notable ; and surely no man carried the burden of ' Responsibilities of Empire' through such an anxious period of the Empire's history.

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.
