Travel Talk
' Earthquakes and Peaches in Chile '
JOHN CANDIA
Listeners will remember John Candia 's talk on the Great Hunting Ground a few weeks ago, for it brought from listeners a rousing welcome. He followed it up with talks on ' Summer in the Pampas' and ' In the Southern Andes '. Today he is to describe an ordinary train journey that he took from Santiago to Valparaiso, and an actual earthquake that he experienced.
Mr. Candia is a partner in a big fruit-broking businfss in the City and lived for many years in Chile, to which he often goes back. He will speak at first hand of the fruit-growing industry ; of the ranch people ; and the Indians. And he will relate a common occurrence in a restaurant in Valdivia, which, if it took place in this country, would create a sensation.

: FAMOUS LONDON BUILDINGS

' The Story of Southwark
Cathedral'
A pageant of the history of the Church of St. Mary Overy, by London Bridge, from its foundation to its inauguration
Compiled by D. F. Aitken
Produced by John Richmond
(Empire Programme)
In this dramatic feature listeners will hear about the history of the Church of St. Mary Overy, by London Bridge, and about legends concerning it that fill in the gap where history is lost. They will hear how it is said it came by its name ; about fires and marriages ; accidents and desecrations ; and disaster causing three thousand deaths. Again and again it was threatened, stricken, but survived. The Priory Church of St. Mary Overy became in due course the Parish Church of St. Saviour, and then, after the passing of centuries and only 32 years ago, the Cathedral Church of the new diocese of Southwark.

History in the University of London
G. L. D. de Vere, W.E.A. Tutor
R. T. Evans. Economic Adviser
G. H. Jones , Secretary of the Midland Miners' Federation
This is the second broadcast in this new series, and it will deal with the history of coal: showing what happened when it was first discovered in the eighteenth century ; how development took place ; how landlords reacted ; and how labour was recruited. It will give a bird's-eye view tracing coal as a nerve-centre in the development of industrial Britain in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, and will show .how the great industries of railways, shipping, and so forth grew up dependent on the mining of coal, and how coal thus led to Great Britain's supremacy and control of the seas.

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.
