: ADVENTURES IN THE SOUTH SEAS

Dwight Long
Few can speak of adventure in the South Seas from greater experience than Dwight Long , who crossed the Pacific in a thirty-two foot ketch. He left Seattle in September, 1934; visited ex-President Hoover in San Francisco ; then sailed for Tahiti. He picked up a fifteen-year-old lad who became his Man Friday. Together they sailed through the South Seas and were de-masted in a hurricane 1,200 miles from New Zealand. His famous ketch was called Idle Hour, but the idle hours he spent in her must have been few.

: I'M GOING TO GIVE UP ...'

Passers-by tell Thomas Woodrooffe their good resolutions for 1938
Broadcast from a London street
This type of programme, although well known and popular in America, is something new for British listeners. It is an experiment; and there seemed no better time to start one of the kind than New Year's Eve, when everybody's thoughts are upon much the same thing.
Thomas Woodrooffe is to go out into the London streets with a microphone and ask various types of Londoners to tell listeners the resolutions they intend not to break. The messenger boy, the postman, the commissionaire-it may be any of these ; it may be the clerk who looks like the managing director, or the millionaire who has forgotten to buy a new coat. Whoever it is, the broadcast should be exciting, for it will have its element of surprise and conjure up London on one of the most characteristic days of the year.

E. F. Jacob
Nowadays we think of our calendar as one of the most definite documents there can be; but this has not always been so. E. F. Jacob , who is Professor of Medieval History in Manchester, is to tell listeners something of the past history of the calendar as we know it, and he will explain how the present system of dating was reached.

Finally, listeners will be taken over to the Chelsea Arts Ball, at which Thomas Woodrooffe will be present to describe the gay scene.

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.
