' Sea birds '
C. C. GADDUM
In his last talk of the term Mr. Gaddum is to speak about sea birds, as many of his listeners will be going to the seaside for their holidays. He will describe the life of the common herring gull, and will speak about his experiences on an island that was colonised by these birds. Then he will talk about the sea-swallow or tern, most graceful of sea birds, although very pugnacious when disturbed while nesting ; finally, he will discuss that curious, sinister-looking bird, the cormorant.

: 'APRIL TO JUNE*

A series of talks about the countryside
Glow-worms ; Cuckoo-spit;
Silver Fish Eric Parker
In the last talk of this series, Eric Parker will discuss one of the most delightful manifestations of insect life-the light given out by the glow-worm. How does it shine? He will go on to discuss the immature plant lice that hide themselves in their own frothy secretion known as cuckoo-spit, and he will deal with the strange superstition of game-keepers that this is dangerous to young birds. Finally he will speak about that strange and ancient form of insect life, the silver-fish, so-called because of the silver glitter of the scales covering its tiny body, and belonging to the order Aptera which includes centipedes, millipedes, spiders, and other wingless creatures.

: ' AMERICA TODAY'

' Economic Problems'
Geoffrey Crowther
In previous talks in this series listeners have seen America depicted against a background of history. Today that well-known broadcaster and economist Geoffrey Crowther is to discuss her economic history in the last twenty years, and particularly in the last seven and a half years. He will speak of her unrivalled prosperity and then of her unrivalled depression.
' In 1928 Mr. Herbert Hoover was elected President of the United States on the slogan of "two cars
.. in every garage and a chicken in every pot".' .Few could believe it when the golden period came to a sudden end in the autumn of 1929, and shares slumped, and banks closed, and unemployment was to reach the appalling figure of six millions.
Crowther will discuss the reasons for the depression and speak of the determination of the American people that such a depression shall never occur again.

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.
