: 'THE SPIRIT OF EXPLORATION'

Admiral Sir William Goodenough
Many listeners will remember the delightful talk on books that Admiral Goodenough broadcast a few weeks ago. As President of the Royal Geographical Society from 1930 to 1933, he met many an explorer at first hand. Tonight he is going to discuss the spirit of exploration rather than the individual explorer, and try to find if there is not a common factor behind them, a spirit in common that impels them to explore and discover, some urged by the wish to advance the realm of science, others the Kingdom of God, and yet again others the possessions of their own countries.

: 'WORLD'S END'

A New Nativity Play in Verse and Prose by J. D. C. Pellow with Carleton Hobbs , Mary O'Farrcll , Peter Trevelyan , Raf de la Torre, Ian Dawson , John Dodsworth , Marcus Barron , Grenville Eves , Henry Hepworth , Dorothy Holmes -
Gore
The BBC Chorus (Section B)
A Section of The London Symphony Orchestra
Leader, W. H. Reed
Conducted by Trevor Harvey
Produced by Geoffrey Dearmcr
In this Nativity play a modern poet has presented with a new significance the timeless Christmas story. It is in three parts. In the first, Adam and Eve, despairing for lost Paradise, meet the three Wise Men, equally despairing, since they have sought, not for God but for human idealism — human power, wisdom, and justice-
It is the Innkeeper who points the contrast, a contrast that is developed in the second part, where shepherds of the period of the Nativity, in an attitude differing from the self-assertion of the Wise Men, base their dependence on the Divine will and receive the angelic tidings.
In the third part the old Adam dies. Angels, proclaimed by the voice of the Innkeeper, raise from the ruins of human endeavour a new Adam, while Eve, transformed into the likeness of the Virgin Mary , presents the divine Child. In a brief epilogue the Innkeeper interprets the meaning of Bethlehem in the world today.

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.
