This is a broadcast in the series of Friday Feature Programmes and Topical Talks in which, week by week, aspects of the modern world are explained to listeners.
This week's programme will be an imaginary visit to a shipyard, where a commentator will take the children on a tour of the yard. He will explain the various processes, and listeners will meet, as it were, various people connected with the building of different types of ships on the Clyde, from the time when the raw material is brought from the steel mill until the ship sails on her maiden voyage.
Records made in the shipyard will be played to add reality to the broadcast.

Scene : An empty house in the charge of caretakers
The production by Howard Rose
(Empire Programme)
A. J. Alan is famous as a story-teller, but this afternoon he figures in the programmes as a playwright. This little play, Fire !, was written more than ten years ago. It was first broadcast in November, 1926, and from then until July, 1927, it went the round of the BBC stations. Since 1927, however, it does not seem to have been broadcast at all.
The play tells of the adventures of two young girls-very competent young persons, luckily-who go to look over an empty house and are shown round by a respectable old lady who has only one weakness. All ends happily, but experienced listeners will be on the look-out for the author's characteristic ' twist ' at the end.

: 'WHAT MORE DO YOU WANT FROM THE SCIENTIST ?'

Longer Life by Hamilton Hartridge , F.R.S.
Professor Hartridge, Professor of Physiology at St. Bartholomew's Medical College since 1927, will discuss how far the proverbial three score years and ten, usually quoted as man's expectation of life, is really inevitable.
Within the last fifty or hundred years, as a result of scientific research, the chances of men surviving to the age of forty have been increased enormously, but our expectation of life beyond seventy has not increased. Will it ever be possible for science to find means whereby the average length of life may be increased? And what would be the effect of this on our social organisation? Professor Hartridge was Experimental Officer at Kings-north Airship Station (R.A.F.) from 1915 to 1919, and was Lecturer in Special Senses and Senior Demonstrator in Physiology at Cambridge University from 1919 to 1927. He has written a number of scientific works.

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.
