: THINGS I CANNOT EXPLAIN

' Cape Town Miracles'
Frank Worthington
The adventure which befell Frank Worthmgton in Cape Town started by his doing a good turn to a stranger. The bread he cast upon the waters came back to him in the shape of a strange privilege; that of being allowed to witness the mysterious happenings of which he tells in his talk. We have all heard of the remarkable powers of Eastern fakirs and holy men. Perhaps it has not fallen to many Europeans to see so complete a range of their wonders as Mr. Worthington beheld that day.

: CIRCUS ACTS IN TRAINING

Mroczkowski puts the Liberty
Horses through their paces
With a description by F. H. Grisewood from Bertram Mills 's Winter
Quarters at Ascot
See the drawings and note by Steven Spurrier on page 10
Few things interest us more, from childhood on, than a circus ; and this broadcast, that is a kind of trailer to the one to be given vof the circus in action, from Olympia on January 5, is planned to show listeners something of the ceaseless activity that goes on while the circus is in winter quarters.
It will concentrate on the liberty horses, so called because they are not ridden. They enter the ring unshod, and are entirely free agents in performing different and wonderful formations. During training (a glimpse of which is to be shown to listeners) these highly-strung animals have to be accustomed to every kind of noise and interruption.
At Ascot, near the race-course station, Bertram ' Mills's Circus spends the winter months. There is a staff of eighty ; there are fifty horses (forty-five of them in the liberty teams), twenty ponies, six elephants, and seven lions. It is an amazing self-supporting industry. The circus has its own farriers, its own vet., its own carpenter's shop, makes its own dresses, and even its own electric light, being dependent on nothing but the water supply.

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.
