: CONVERSATION IN THE TRAIN

What is best worth having in Life?
Mabel Constanduros
This is the third conversation in a train by the editress of our Letter Page this week. The characters are four: a girl, who believes in her career ; a young man, who believes in work for work's sake; an elderly North-Country man, who believes in money; and a mature woman, who believes that the best things in life are a husband and child-the latter character being played by Mabel Constanduros.
She has been rehearsing this week in her own play, Three for Luck, which is to be produced next Monday by the Newcastle Repertory Company. She came up to London today especially to broadcast and will return on the last train tonight. Her first novel, ' Poison Flower ', which has just been published, is on the same theme.

: COAL

1, The Mineral and the Mine
. Contributors
T. David Jones , Professor of Mining at the University of Wales F. J. North, Head of the Geological Department of the National
Museum of Wales
Wesley Hancock , Lecturer in Mining in the University of Birmingham
Robert Gee
This is the first broadcast in an important series that has been planned to give listeners a bird's-eye view of the physical conditions of coal and coal-mining. It will begin with an account of what coal is, and will end with an account of the collier. It was a problem how a subject covering the British Isles could be dealt with from London, because no complete picture could be given without bringing to the microphone men who know the industry in the North and West and East. As the broadcasts had to be limited to five, the duration of each has been extended beyond the usual time allotted to talks, and three or more speakers will contribute to each broadcast.
Tonight listeners are to hear about the nature of coal 'and the difficulties that had to be overcome before it was first mined ; also an account and explanation of what a coal-mine is.

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.
