Ⓓ World History
' Goths and Huns '
' The Wanderings of the. Peoples'
HUGH ROSS WILLIAMSON
' The Huns wander about over the mountains and through the woods, training themselves to bear from infancy frost and hunger and thirst..... They wear linen clothes or else the skins of field-mice sewn together .... Their heads are covered with round caps and their hairy legs with goat-skins .... They can remain on horse-back night and day..... None of them ploughs nor even touches a plough handle..... They have no settled abode but are alike homeless and lawless, always wandering with their waggons which are indeed their homes. They seem to be ever in flight.'
This is what a man who lived at the time wrote about the fierce men from the East who brought so much trouble to the peoples of Europe in the fourth and fifth centuries A.D. You will hear how Theodoric, King of the Goths, joined with Aetius, a great Roman general, and stopped the victorious march of Attila, the King of the Huns.

: FARMING TODAY '

W. S. Mansfield
Today Mr. Mansfield is going to talk about poultry with his own poultry manager. On the University Farm at Cambridge there is a poultry farm consisting of some thousand head of laying hens. Many of the birds are moved about the fields, and the poultry department fits in with the general scheme of farming. However, as Mr. Mansfield said in his talk last week, the turnover from eggs is high but the profit is not what it might be, owing to the fact that even he is not independent of imported feeding stuffs. This problem of the rising cost of feeding stuffs has become so serious of recent years that any remarks Mr. Mansfield and his poultry manager make will be of general interest to poultry keepers.

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.
