: THINGS I CANNOT Ⓓ EXPLAIN

' News from Nowhere '
J. D. Beresford
Is it possible that under certain conditions we may receive messages from a source unknown to science ? In his talk this afternoon J. D. Beresford , the distinguished novelist, will give an account of two strange communications within his personal experience—just ' news from nowhere ' that apparently served no useful purpose.
Every Thursday at this time a different speaker who has had some extraordinary experience which he cannot explain will describe it before the microphone.

The Close of the Tennis Season
Star v. Rabbit
A discussion by Peggy Scriven and Freddie Grisewood
Listeners should hear a lively debate between an enthusiastic : rabbit ' in the shape of one of the most popular of broadcasters, F. H. Grisewood , and the Wightman Cup tennis player, Peggy Scriven. Many a time when they have played together in tournaments and private games Grisewood has contended that the ' rabbit ', or mediocrity, gets all the worst of it in tournaments and everywhere else, but Peggy Scriven won't have it so. Now they are to argue it out before the microphone.

: BOOK TALK

Doughty, Lawrence, and the Near East
Sir Ronald Storrs ,
K.C.M.G., C.B.E.
Sir Ronald Storrs , whose talk on Kitchener was a feature in the ' I Knew a Man ' series, has had a distinguished career in the East, dating from 1904, when he entered the Egyptian Government, Ministry of Finance, to 1932, when he had been for four years Governor and Commander-in-Chief of Cyprus. He was then appointed Governor and Commander-in-Chief of Northern Rhodesia, an appointment he held until 1934, when he was invalided from tropical service.
In his broadcast this evening he will discuss some great books about the Near and Middle East, including Kinglake's ' Eothen ' and Doughty's ' Arabia Deserta ', and he will conclude his talk with a reference to ' The Seven Pillars of Wisdom ' and give some personal memories of Lawrence of Arabia.
Sir Ronald was Oriental Secretary to the British Agency in Egypt in 1909 and was Lawrence's link with that country.

: SAVING WILD LIFE. 2

H. G. Maurice , C.B.
The path of human progress is strewn with wrecks, and the destructive arm of man has fallen most heavily upon wild life-animals, trees, and plants. In this series of talks that was introduced last week by Julian Huxley , the tale of destruction will be told so far as it affects animal life ; and the efforts which are being made in various quarters of the Empire to avoid the extinction of rare animals will be described.
Tonight H. G. Maurice , Fisheries
Secretary at the Ministry of Agriculture, will show how man alone is responsible for the disappearance of the quagga, once counted in thousands on the South African veldt.
He will speak of the lovely biaubok that has also vanished before the invasion of man ; of the Greenland right whale, now very rare, and of the blue whale, the largest animal the world has ever known and probably the most unoffending, which is in grave danger.

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.
