Ⓓ Interlude
2.5 Travel Talk
(g) ' A Summer Christmas in the Antarctic (South Georgia)'
A. H. LAURIE
On several occasions during the last eight years Mr. Laurie has visited the island of South Georgia in the Antarctic, where it is summer at Christmas and yet bittetly cold. He has been there to study the life history of whales on behalf of the ' Discovery ' Committee, which also operates the Royal Research Ships Discovery II and William Scoresby.
Today he is to tell you about a Christmas he spent there. He will talk of the peculiar ice-bound climate of an island no farther south than England is north, and of the astonishing profusion of plant and animal life in the sea surrounding one of Britain's bleakest possessions.
You will hear interesting and exciting things about seals, penguins, and whales, and about a marvellous climb there by Sir Ernest Shackleton which no man has ever been able to achieve since.

' Christmas is Coming '
Boys and girls from various parts of the world will tell what Christmas is like at home
Listeners are to hear something of the way Christmas is spent in other countries, and they are to hear it from representatives of those different countries. Four or five children or young people will be coming to the microphone: certainly a boy from Sweden and a young Nigerian girl who is at school over here. It is hoped that listeners will also hear people from Australia and from India, and perhaps from Canada, too. Music will be played typical of Christmas celebrations in the different countries or of other celebrations that are held at Christmas-time.

: ' SPRITES AND GOBLINS '

A Christmas adventure into the enchanted Kingdom of Faery
We are approaching one of the great seasons for sprites and goblins, fairies, and elves. If we get up early enough, rub our eyes with the right ointment, and go to the right place, what shall we see ?
Arranged by Desmond Hawkins
Produced by John Richmond
(Empire Programme)
This programme, compiled by Desmond Hawkins, who wrote ' The Nest of Singing Birds', broadcast a year ago, is as light as it should be attractive. Two small boys returning home from school see a strange light moving about among the trees and, on tracking it down, they are confronted with a goblin.f In subsequent dialogue the goblin reveals something of the manners and habits of his kindred, partly in prose and partly by means of selected poems and ballads. The whole is linked together with appropriate music.

G. H. Jones , Secretary of the Midland Miners' Federation ;
B. Whitaker , Manager of a Colliery in Kent
So far broadcasts in this series have. been concerned with coal and coal mining ; the nature of coal ; its discovery ; its effect on industry ; and so forth. But the last two broadcasts take on a more human note. There could be no mining without the collier ; and today listeners are to hear about his life underground-his work, skill, esprit de corps, and heroism. In the final broadcast next week they will hear about the collier in his home-his wife and children and surroundings.

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.
